Health Tip of the Day

When Do You Need a Vitamin or Mineral Supplement?

Supplements are not substitutes. They can't replace the variety of necessary nutrients found in whole foods, but you might need them:

  • If you frequently skip meals or don't eat enough fruits, vegetables, grain and dairy products.

  • If you're on a low-calorie diet.

  • If you're a strict vegetarian.

  • If you can't drink milk or eat yogurt.

  • If you're a woman of child-bearing age and don't eat fruits and vegetables.

  • If you are pregnant.
