Please understand that all your daily nutritional needs should be met by eating a variety of foods that is outlined in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. However, there are some cases where it is difficult to consume certain foods due to food allergies, scarcity, seasons, climate and weather changes, etc. This is where vitamins and/or supplements may help with providing your body the necessary nutrients that otherwise may be consumed less than the recommended amounts.
If you are already eating the recommended amounts of foods, you may not need to take any vitamins and/or dietary supplements.

How do I know which product(s) I should use?
The best way to find out which product(s) you should use in your lifestyle is to check with your healthcare professional. Your body’s need for vitamins and/or supplements depends on many factors such as:
Age – As you grow older, your body’s ability to absorb nutrients from foods are reduced, making it more difficult to reach the recommended nutrition amounts that your body may require.

How many meals to you have per day?
Is your diet restricted? That is, do you not eat meat, milk, gluten products, etc.?
How may servings of fruits and vegetables do you typically ingest per day?
Without wanting to, have you lost/gained weight over the past 6 months?
Do you take any prescribed or over-the-counter medicine? How much per day?
Do you consume alcohol? How much and how often per week?
Do you smoke or are around others who do? How often?
Genetics – A family history of possible health issues may appear more apparent in your body’s health needs. Knowing if there are any possible genetic health issues from your family lineage and consulting with your healthcare professional will help determine what your body’s nutrition needs are.
