You and I both know how important the right nutrients are to your health. But unfortunately many people are so overwhelmed—or uninformed—by their vitamin choices that they just grab the quickest multivitamin off the drugstore shelves.
But recently, Jim Healthy on Yahoo’s Healthy Living Channel dug a little deeper in an interesting article about how he chose which five supplements to take with him on an overseas journey.
Not surprisingly, grocery store one-a-days didn’t make the cut. He reported that, “…mainstream multis are notoriously feeble. For example Consumer Reports recently concluded that Centrum is the worst vitamin for seniors in its class…[they] also found that The Vitamin Shoppe’s One Daily failed to dissolve in a simulated stomach environment, while containing less vitamin A than its label claim.”
The article also reinforced what I’ve been saying for years—that the RDAs (recommended daily allowances) set by the government fall woefully short of what you truly need for optimal health.
I was pleased that my Forward Multi-Nutrient made the author’s “short list” of recommended multi-nutrients.
What’s even more interesting is that if you take my full Forward Plus Daily Regimen, you get four out of five of the must-take nutrients that Jim Healthy recommends—including the multi-nutrient, magnesium citrate, vitamin D, and omega-3 essential fatty acids. That’s why it’s my number one recommendation for every patient I treat—it gives you the critical foundation you need for optimal health.
Now it’s your turn: If you had to choose just 5 supplements to take with you on a long trip, which ones would YOU take?
