Picking the right supplements also matters. It would be best if you look for vitamins that are whole food, non-GMO, and from a reputable source. Although the ones sold readily at box stores look appealing and cost less, they typically are made from something other than quality ingredients. For example, they might include harmful substances like heavy metals and other toxins. Another issue with generic vitamins is that they may have a different amount of the vitamin than advertised in each serving. So don’t compromise quantity for quality. You will pay one way or another.
