Smorgasbord Health Column – Supplements – Absorbing the nutrients and avoiding the additives

Welcome to this week’s health column. Last week I looked at both prescription and over the counter pain medication. https://smorgasbordinvitation.wordpress.com/2018/01/15/smorgasbord-health-column-painkillers-prescribed-and-over-the-counter-side-effects-and-addiction/

This week I am looking at the use of supplements, the ingredients you should avoid and which ones are more easily absorbed by the body.

My research into absorption of supplements goes back to my days of running my diet advisory clinic and health food shop twenty years ago here in Ireland. I noticed that herbal remedies in tincture form appeared to work more effectively than their tablet format, and as a consequence I usually suggested that customers and clients use the tincture or liquid form whenever it was available, and if not move to capsules. The capsules were easy to break apart and mix with water, rather than have to crush tablets which was recommended if hard to swallow or digest.

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.

  1. I take Juice Plus nutritional supplements which are one of only a few which the FDA approved. They have concentrated vitamins taken from fruits and vegetables. I feel better by taking them. I never get enough fruits and vegetables!
