TIPS ON SELECTING SUPPLEMENTS

Your body is the church where Nature asks to be reverenced.

There are many factors to consider when choosing a supplement. Before choosing a product, consider the list below of do’s and don’ts.

It is so much more difficult to live with one's body than with one's soul. One's body is so much more exacting: what it won't have it won't have, and nothing can make bitter into sweet.

Do’s
• Research your options—consult with your pharmacist or health care provider and find out as much as you can about the products you are considering. In particular ask if there are any possible interactions with medications or side effects.
• When buying a multivitamin, look for one that contains a complete array of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in one formula. This will keep the amount of pills you take to a minimum and will also be easier on your budget. Depending on your diet and needs, you may still need to take additional vitamin C, E, and cal- cium as it is difficult to fit all of these nutrients into one tablet.
• Buy from a reputable manufacturer. Ask your pharmacist or health food store ad- viser for a recommendation.
• Remember it may take four to six weeks or longer to notice benefits, and some supplements that are taken for prevention may not offer benefits that you can feel.
• If you are pregnant, nursing a baby, or have a chronic medical condition, be sure to
consult a nutrition specialist before purchasing or taking any supplements.
• Read the labels carefully. Look for an expiration date and make sure the product is
in good date. If there is no expiration date on the label, don’t buy it.
• If you have questions about a certain brand, call the manufacturer and ask your questions.

The only bodily organ which is really regarded as inferior is the atrophied penis, a girl's clitoris.

Don’ts
• Don’t take supplements with sugar, starch, corn, wheat, iron, dairy, salt, artificial flavourings and colourings (dyes), and preservatives. These are unnecessary ingredients that can cause allergic reactions in some people.
• Don’t choose a supplement based on price. Some vitamins are more expensive due to company marketing and advertising costs and are not necessarily made with better
ingredients.
• Don’t continue to take a supplement if you have a bad reaction, such as prolonged upset stomach or rash.
• Don’t stop taking a prescribed drug or substitute a supplement for a prescribed drug unless under the advice and supervision of your health care provider.
• Don’t take a higher dosage of a product than is recommended on the label unless advised to do so by your health care provider.

The body is mortal, but the person dwelling in the body is immortal and immeasurable.

It is a sign of a dull nature to occupy oneself deeply in matters that concern the body; for instance, to be over much occupied about exercise, about eating and drinking, about easing oneself, about sexual intercourse. Only do it when needed to live satisfactorily.
