It’s important to remember that vitamin supplements are no miracle worker. A good philosophy is to always make sure to optimize your diet before turning to supplements to help with health concerns or nutrient deficiencies. It’s also worth noting that vitamins found in foods are better absorbed than vitamins found in supplements. Why? Pills often contain fillers, such as magnesium stearate and cellulose, which can impair absorption. Still, there is a place for vitamin supplements.
