Nutritional Supplement Controversy

You do not have to look hard to find an article or news report suggesting that nutritional supplements have no benefit. Indeed, not all vitamins or dietary supplements will help everyone the same way. However, despite the documented benefits that vitamins bring to many people, some reports tend to be simplistic and misleading, leading a consumer to reason that vitamins are entirely worthless, which is nonsense.

Where does this foregone conclusion come from? I have often heard that the answers to such questions come when we follow the money. What happens to people who do not take their vitamins or get the daily vitamin allowance their bodies need? In my experience, they get ill sooner and more often, lose function and resilience more quickly as they age, and perhaps do not live as long.

Who benefits from this? The affluent and influential healthcare and pharmaceutical companies thrive from people being sick. Medicare and retirement systems also benefit from people dying sooner. I am not a conspiracy theorist, but it is essential to point out that these businesses make more money from treating symptoms than preventing them in the first place.

In the meantime, there are so many documented advantages of taking vitamins that I will certainly not stop taking mine.

The Role of Vitamins and Supplements in Our Nutritional Health

After paying for housing and transportation, good, healthy food is the first place to invest your money. After that comes multivitamins, fish oil, and various supplements that supply anti-oxidants, help the body detoxify from environmental exposures, and remove the byproducts of our own energy production. Even if you need treatment from a local medical provider for headaches, chronic fatigue, or other issues, it is helpful to know that supplemental nutrition can provide long-term benefits and even reduce the need for medical intervention.

That is why Blatman Health and Wellness Center offers various nutritional products in our online store. They have been thoroughly researched and have helped many of our patients. Here is a sample of our products and their benefits:
