15 Apr Supplementing Your Allergies
Finding a safe multivitamin/mineral supplement that is free from the top 8 allergens can be a challenge.
In addition to safety factors, determining individual supplement needs is also crucial. Keep the following tips in mind:
–Read the label carefully. Manufacturing practices constantly change. Ensure that there is cross contamination with any allergens or foods that you are allergic/ sensitive to. Also ensure that the nutrient gaps you are trying to satisfy will be met using this supplement.
–Check the amount of each nutrient. In general, there is no need to exceed 100% of the Daily Value (DV) for most nutrients in that supplement.
–Satisfy your nutritional needs. Many supplements are geared towards helping individuals with specific dietary needs, such as pregnancy. Also, choosing a formula for men, women or children can be a good way to meet unique dietary needs.
–There is such thing as too much of a good thing. Don’t overdo it.
