What’s on the Shelves?

Over-the-counter vitamin supplements come in different forms, combinations, and amounts.

They’re available in tablet, capsule, gel capsule, powder, sublingual (under the tongue), lozenge, and liquid forms.

They can also be given by injection.

In most cases, it’s a matter of personal preference as to how you take them.

But, due to slight variations in how rapidly the supplements are absorbed and assimilated into your body, we’ll sometimes recommend one form over another.

Vitamin supplements are usually available as isolated vitamins or in combination with other nutrients.

It’s important to select your vitamins based on what you really need.

A program designed for health maintenance would be different from one designed to overcome a specific disorder.

Some 59% of Americans are now taking supplements on a regular basis.

If you find a supplement meeting your needs, remember to take it daily.

If it doesn’t contain a large enough quantity of what you want, you may consider taking more than one.

Just make sure you’re aware of the increased dosage of the other nutrients it may contain.

If there’s no single supplement providing you with what you’re looking for, consider taking a combination of different supplements.

We’ll talk about each supplement separately, so you’ll know what each does and the amount needed.

But you may find a supplement containing several needed nutrients in one tablet or capsule.

In fact, a good or premium multivitamin (and multimineral) should be a part of everyone’s diet after he or she reaches a certain age, with additional supplements as necessary.

Because the potency of most vitamins may be decreased by sunlight, make sure the container holding your vitamins is dark enough to shield its contents properly.

Some people may be sensitive to plastic, and may need to purchase vitamins in glass containers.

Vitamin supplements should be kept in a cool, dark place.

All vitamin supplements work best when taken in combination with food.

Unless specified otherwise, oil-soluble vitamins should be taken before meals, and water-soluble ones should be taken after meals.

(This is if you’re taking individual supplements only.

Multivitamins have both water-soluble and oil-soluble elements.)

If you’re concerned about getting the full potency from your supplements, you may want to try using raw food-created vitamins made from a single-cell yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

This yeast creates vitamins and minerals that aren’t isolated or synthesized, but come from nutrient-dense whole foods.

Once of the best sources of raw food-created vitamins is Shaklee.
