You can’t supplement your way out of a poor diet, plain and simple. If you’re eating nutrient-poor foods but taking an herbal elixir, it’s like a drop of clean water in a murky ocean, and it’s very likely that whatever ailment you’re trying to fix will stick around. With that said, I am not talking about food perfection. Just remember that food comes first and supplements should be the targeted tools to take your wellness game to the next level.
So with all these factors taken into consideration, on average how long does it take to notice improvements from taking a supplement? The average person will notice a difference anywhere from one day in to four or eight weeks in—depending on how deficient you were in the first place. If you’re not seeing any results after eight weeks, it’s generally time to reevaluate and talk to a doctor.
So, back to the big question: Should you take vitamins? I believe that obtaining minerals, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids from diets rich in from diets rich in lean organic meats and wild fish, lots and lots of veggies, green leafies, high fiber fruits, a small amount of oranic non GMO grains, legumes and sources like flaxseed, chia seeds, hemp seeds, and nuts is the optimal route for nutrition. However, nutritional deficiencies are widespread with all dietary patterns, and certain disease conditions respond to supplements. Doing your research, identifying specialty providers of supplements, and asking for advice from health professionals with a focus on nutrition and micronutrients is wise. For me, I take high-quality supplements daily based on nutritional testing verified by follow-up testing.
