Whole Food Vitamins: Vitamins are widely available, and they are also widely VARIABLE in their quality. In general, vitamins made from whole foods (they will be labeled as such) are more easily absorbed and used by your body and are a better choice.

Stories about improvement after starting a treatment appear to be compelling. However there is a lot of hidden bias in such stories. Fortunately, scientists have developed methods to test whether something really works. No supplements have worked. ...Read more

Studies show that you absorb more from food than from a vitamin. Lots of fruits and vegetables. Folic acid is essential! ...Read more
