Do's & Don'ts of Vitamin Use
According to a study at Harvard, over 80% of men and women take some kind of vitamin supplement on a regular basis.

But, in spite of their best efforts, they may not be getting the nutrition they think due to the common mistakes that people make. Or, worse yet, these individuals may be putting their health at risk.

Taking doses that are too low, in the wrong combination, or even at the wrong time of day can all mean you don’t get the nutrition you expect. You also have to keep in mind the interactions of certain medications, such as diabetes medications and acid reducers.

What are the "do's and don'ts" of vitamin use?

Sarah Hiner, President/CEO of Boardroom Inc., joins hosts Andrea Donsky and Lisa Davis to explain the difference between more expensive vitamins and cheaper, big-box store vitamins, as well as certain interactions you may want to consider.
