The differences between Food and Medicine

whole food and medication

The diverse forms of health supplements available in the market make it challenging for consumers to choose.

While it may indeed be the nutrients that the human body needs, have you ever considered that those supplements may actually correspond to medications for specific illnesses?

If there’s a real possibility that our bodies are lacking something, we may require prescriptions from doctors for supplements.

Perhaps there are initial positive effects, but continuous and excessive supplementation of a single nutrient can undoubtedly lead to a nutritional imbalance in the body! This can ultimately result in more severe consequences.

Consequently, it’s wise to adhere to the following three guidelines while making purchases connected to health: “Pause,” “Examine,” and “Listen”:

⏸ 𝐏𝐚𝐮𝐬𝐞: Consider whether you really need it.

🤔 𝐄𝐱𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐞: Examine it more closely to see if it’s a supplement made of chemicals or a single nutrient.

👂 𝐋𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐧: Seek medical advice from a physician or an expert in immunology and nutrition before making a purchase.

By abiding by these guidelines, we guarantee safer health consumption and prevent future, potentially dire repercussions.

Are more vitamins good for me?

If something is good, people tend to want more of it. That holds doubly true for vitamins. Vitamins are good for you, but only in the amounts that your body requires. However, the danger comes when you get too much of a vitamin, something that is exceedingly easy to do with vitamin supplements.

What happens if I overdose on vitamins?

Overdosing on vitamins is easy when taken in concentrated doses in supplement form. This can
cause various health problems, for example:
Vitamin C — kidney stones
Vitamin A — osteoporosis, liver damage, and birth defects
Vitamin D — heart arrhythmias, and hypercalcemia, which weakens bones and damages the
heart and kidneys
Vitamin A, D, and K — toxicity (our body cannot get rid of these vitamins)
Iron — heart and liver damage
Vitamin E — higher risk of osteoporosis
