And over-supplementing can come with unwanted side effects. More isn’t always better!
- Many protein supplements have been shown to decrease health-promoting bacteria after just 10 weeks.
- High dose vitamin C can cause gut upset in some people.
- Vitamin A over-supplementation has been linked to hair loss for some and chronic consumption could even cause liver damage.
Two supplements it could be worth thinking about?
Vitamin D, especially in the winter months or if you’re spending more time indoors and Omega 3 if you don’t eat oily fish at least once per week.
