Vitamins and dietary supplements are all the rage today, in part because of the lack of quality in much of our food. Our grocery shopping habits lead us to buy processed foods, foods with non-organic additives, and produce from corporate farms that are more mindful of dollars than quality. While we must continue to eat meats, vegetables, and other primary foods, we are supplementing these main courses more and more with ingredients that have been stripped from them. It’s a daunting task; the sheer array of choices staggers the mind (specialized stores exist that only sell food supplements), but with a little research and advice, we can usually figure out what we should get.
