The Connection ~ Part V

When choosing a supplement, keep in mind that not all supplements are created equal. When choosing a vitamin supplement look for a seal of approval from the Unites States Pharmacopeia (USP), NSF International, Natural Products Association or ConsumerLab.com. This indicates that it has been tested and includes the nutrients listed in the amounts listed. This can also give you some confidence that the pill will dissolve before exiting your system. For fish oil supplements, the possibility of contaminants makes it doubly important to check that testing has been done to ensure purity.
Good emotional health starts with good physical health. Making sure your body has what it needs does not have to be a time consuming process and is well worth the effort. It is also mandatory for maintaining emotional health.
