Studies On The Benefits of Vitamins and Supplements

There are so many medical studies these days in the news supporting the merits of taking certain vitamins and supplements. Several studies in the past concluded that taking extra Calcium will prevent osteoporosis in women. Now we have studies saying that additional supplementation of calcium provides no extra benefits. Which studies are we to believe? Which ones are the most accurate? What you hear in the news can be quite confusing for most people!

There is no need to be overly concerned or worried over the conflicting studies. My advice is the following which most medical and fitness professionals will give. 

Exercise regularly incorporating cardiovascular and some form of weight training 2 to 3 times per week. Weight bearing exercises help in the prevention of bone loss. My website has many weight training exercises for you here as well as some excellent book excerpts on new approaches to exercise.

Secondly, eat properly. Proper nutrition is vital for maintaining your ideal weight and health.  I know that sometimes it's not possible to eat all your fruits and vegetables, plus the vitamin content in fruits and vegetables is decreasing over time. A lot of that has to do with the manner in which produce is grown and shipped to market, but that is a topic for another time. But not to worry because cereals and other foods are fortified with extra vitamins and minerals these days.

You may also consider taking a quality multi-vitamin daily. On my next blog entry, I will discuss one high quality multi-vitamin that I haeve been taking since 1992.
