A whopping 78% of Americans think that dietary supplements are a smart choice for a healthy lifestyle, but only a few know of the hidden dangers of supplements.
Unlike prescription drugs that HAVE to be approved by the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration), the supplement industry doesn’t have to adhere to this regulation. Nevertheless, 68% of Americans still take daily dietary supplements.
Oftentimes dietary supplements contain laxatives, sildenafil (also known as Viagra), and sibutramine known as Meridia – a weight loss drug, causing increased heart attack and stroke risk.
Too much vitamin intake can also be harmful for your body, i.e. overdosing on vitamin A can lead to liver failure. In some instances, your body can’t even absorb the mineral/vitamin because it needs to be taken in combination with another vitamin/mineral.
For example, did you know it’s best to take iron with vitamin C? That’s because vitamin C enhances iron absorption.
Generally though, there is lack of knowledge by the consumer who is blindly trusting the supplement industry with their health.
