Eat yourself healthy...

Posted Jul 06 2010 1:31am

Although some of the info in this article about the best sources of different nutrients could have been enhanced (some items listed are not the very best sources) it does, yet again highlight the need to eat a varied diet of wholesome foods.

If we do that then there is no need to take supplements as well. There is strong evidence to suggest that we cannot absorb vitamins and minerals as well in supplement form as we can from food - of course this is rarely focused on because the supplements industry is worth far too much money.

Interesting statement"The RDA for vitamin C is 60mg, but taking 1,000mg or less of vitamin C supplements a day is unlikely to cause any harm because any that you don't need will be excreted in your urine."
I would want better than 'unlikely'... and if you need 60mg why produce supplements that contain 1000mg - kind of proves my point.

Anyway - anything that encourages ditching processed foods (that are completely devoid of nutritional value) is good.
