Can taking too many supplements at once counteract or cancel each other out?
Q. Can taking too many supplements at once counteract or cancel each other out? -Jenny
Q. I am currently taking several supplements. But, as I take them each morning I wonder if anything I am taking is counteracting with each other or cancelling each other out? Is there a good resource online, that you know of and recommend, that I can go to for this information? Thanks!
The likelihood of two supplements counteracting one another effect is very slim. The question I find most people struggling with is “which ones to take.”
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of supplements being offered and more appear every day. You can overwhelm yourself with trying to pick your way through this maze. I would offer some simple advice. If you take care of your sleep cycle and get a good 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night, drink clean filtered water, eat organic whole foods and exercise every day then your absolute need for supplements will be much less.
But even if you lived a perfect lifestyle (good luck with that) I find certain nutrients are still beneficial and when deciding what to take I can offer a few suggestions.
Be careful taking one person’s recommendation or reading one editorial. If you really want to know what’s going on then you have to look at the research. For any topic you can find positive or negative information.
