What You Don’t Know About Vitamins

Working mom Cylina Slajda is like millions of Americans who spend billions of dollars on vitamins and supplements.

“I take a multi-vitamin, I take fish oil, and usually a B12 for energy – because I have a 4-year old I like to keep up with.”

Experts say in many cases, their money could be better spent. The estimated 40% of the population currently taking multi-vitamins may be getting little in return.

“Multi-vitamins are a shotgun approach. You’re just taking all of the vitamins, but you really don’t have a clue what you’re really supposed to be taking,” says Dr. Sal Lacagnina, vice president of health and wellness for Lee Memorial Health System.

And mega-doses of specific vitamins can be downright dangerous. While water-soluble ones like B and C will flush through the body, others stick around.

“When you’re looking at the fat-soluble vitamins, A, D, E, and K, over a long time period, if you’re taking in too much, it actually stays in your system. And can become toxic,” Dr. Lacagnina says.

When you say ‘supplements’ you’ve said a mouthful. They include not only vitamins, but minerals and antioxidants. The term refers to ‘adding’ or ‘supplementing’ them into your diet. Calcium is the most notable. And doctors find it might be better as a supplement.

“We’ve all been taught over the years that you have to have dairy products to get your calcium. All you really need to do is take a calcium supplement. You don’t need to be getting calcium from milk or cheese or dairy products because what you’re getting in addition is all of the extra fat,” says Dr. Lacagnina.

Being educated and paying attention to your body may be your best guide.

“I notice a difference in my energy level and even my focus if I’m not taking them.” says Slajda.

Food for thought as you ponder how to spend your green.

S. Boyd Eaton, M.D. – Long-Term Paleo: What Happens if You Follow the Ancestral Health Protocol for Thirty Years?

A single person’s experience hardly constitutes robust scientific evidence. Nevertheless, individual life histories can sometimes elicit public acceptance of health recommendations more readily than can findings from impeccably-designed epidemiological investigations. Like most people considering adoption of a Paleo lifestyle, Eaton has had a fairly demanding job, as well as family, social, civic and professional responsibilities.

His story doesn’t come from a metabolic ward setting. Some symposium attendees may wish to know how he’s maintained, and enjoyed, diet and exercise in the ancestral mold for over thirty years. More will be interested in the outcome (so far) –the health profile that results from three decades of Paleo living.

S. Boyd Eaton M.D. has been a “Paleo” practitioner since the late 1970’s –probably as long, or longer, than anyone else has followed a health-promoting program specifically modeled on the essential lifestyle elements of Stone Age humans. His New England Journal of Medicine article, Paleolithic Nutrition, (with co-author Mel Konner) has been called by some the original impetus for the ancestral health movement.
