FDA Tackle Food Supplements

IOM, FDA Tackle Food Supplements -- American Academy of Family Physicians

Ok guys, I'm scared about taking supplements. They can do some harm. Yes you heard it, harm!

Should you be taking supplement? It could be dangerous, even to a healthy person. Possibility is there and steps are being taken to prevent it. I'm not saying Nutrilite products are bad. God no. BUT, supplements may cause some harm in some cases. I don't know. I am not a Dietitian/Nutritionist.

Oh wait, so are the IBOs selling Nutrilite telling how stupid doctors are (I heard that!). Funny the moment a person signs up for a vitamin selling MLM they became so expert in food industry that they start calling doctors stupid!

Also, I think a person should consult a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist for an eating plan that is personalized to his needs.
For most people, eating a variety of foods as suggested by Canada's Food Guide to Healthy Eating will provide all the necessary nutrients. The average healthy person does not require vitamin or mineral pills, even on a stressful day.
Bottom line, Nutrilite may be best of the best, but I'm not taking ANY supplements. Yes I admit I'm a chicken. If there is 0.0001% possibility they can do some harm to me, why spend money on it? I'd rather buy some stupid XBox game. They are fun at least.

Hi Imran,

I would like to say that I take a whole food supp. to supp. my diet.

NOT to replace.

I believe in eating right, lots of fruits and veggies.

I believe in taking a real whole food supp. can enahance a good diet.

What do you think?

Best regards,

Hi Marc,

If you read these sites, most of them target against "Miracle" supplements. Nutrilite is pretty ok.

I do take daily Quotidien. When that'll finish I'll decide between Fruit and Veggie or Another Daily. If I'm about to get married then Ginseng ;)

Good to see you, dont see you a lot in forum though.

Hi Imran,

Nice to see you too!

NutriliteĀ® Concentrated Fruits and Vegetables is a pretty decent product. You can get some real whole food from them.

Of course not nearly as much as DoubleX and other vits and minerals.

But a good product.

Been very busy lately, which is why you haven't seen me as much. Working on some pretty big campaigns for XS and Nutrilite.

A bunch of us are starting a new youth basketball league in our town, The one that's been around for years has dis-banded.

So what I'm going to do is be selling XS Sports Drinks at the practices and games and donating the retail profits back to the league.

This way the kids can get a much more healthier Sports Drink.

Just placed an order of 100 cases. We're hoping to be selling at least 75-100 cases a month for the league.

Also we're going to be incorporating kids nutrition into the picture, for better health for the kids.

Again, all proceeds will be donated to the league.

Take Care,

Ok marc here is what happening, every time I look at the proces of Nutrilite I got scared.

Maybe Nutrilite is better than the ones OUT there, I rather do something else.
