• WHY TAKE SUPPLEMENTS ??
Thursday, October 20, 2011
As many of you know, a new study was released last week saying that multivitamins can cause higher mortality rates in older women.
I was so disappointed to see the supplement industry being attacked again. I want to assure you that using high-quality multinutrient formulations properly, and in conjunction with a well-balanced diet and lifestyle, is a wonderful way to stay healthy and vibrant.
If you take a closer look at the study in question, you would find that it is seriously flawed. The research is faulty and lacking in critical information. For instance, we dont know which supplements the women took, in what amounts, or if they took their supplements regularly. These are all vital criteria, and drawing conclusions from such limited information is irresponsible. From my perspective, this is yet another reason you cant always believe everything you read in the news media. Once again, they have presented a biased view of yet another skewed study on vitamins and supplements, leading you to believe that you should discontinue your use of multinutrient supplements. This is a tremendous disservice to women everywhere. I, for one, have witnessed wonderful results in countless patients over the years for whom I prescribed nutritional supplement regimens to prevent and treat illness and disease. However, its important to remember that not all supplements are created equal. I always recommend finding products that are made with high quality ingredients and are tested for purity.
If you are currently using any of my formulations, you can rest assured that both of these criteria are met so you never have to worry about negative effects. My goal is, and always has been, to help you enjoy vibrantly good health, longevity, and total peace of mind.
Until next time,Susan M. Lark
