      Yes. I take iodine and zinc daily. Ordered a few others. If you aren’t eating everything that cavemen ate 10,000 years ago, how could it be possible that you AREN’T missing any specific nutrient?

        Damn, you sure showed those faggots by being even more of one yourself.
        Translation for you: the target audience is iodine deficient, and is likely adhering to destructive trends. Assuming the target audience has non-iodized sea salt instead of iodized fits the tone.

      Everyone should supplement B12, as everyone is deficient.

          Its created by gut bacteria and can only be found in shit. Animals eat shit so they get enough of it. Most b12 supplements go toward farming animals. We in turn get that b12 by either eating meat or drinking milk.

        Most table salt is iodized, it just tastes like shit. Seriously, I switched to sea salt a long time ago. I had to use table salt recently, and couldn’t stand the metallic taste. I get iodine from other food sources anyway.

            Iodized salt tastes like licking the floor of a warehouse. Non iodized sea salt is delicious.

      If you eat enough meat, fish, nuts and fruit supplements should be unnecessary.

      It’s better to try to get the nutrients from your diet first. What’s pretty interesting is how many cholinergic nootropic drugs are contained in egg yolks – no need for a supplement.
      Taking the wrong supplement can also really gently caress up your health. People who are high in iron who take iron supplements (which is sometimes added as a filler to things like pain-relief medications) can experience a lot of increased inflammation. About 1% of the population is sensitive to sulphites and if they take a sulphur based supplement they can also really gently caress up their health. Any supplement in excess that your body has trouble removing rapidly can cause damage.

      My experience after lots of supplements is one really bad experience taking the wrong supplement that I reacted horribly too. Most of them had very minimal effects after the first few uses. Much better to just focus on good diet. Adding the occasional egg, sardine, liver, and legumes and sunlight will provide pretty much all nutrient needs in a normal western diet.

        This chart is ass. Vitamin C is definitely above the worth it line if it is strictly evidence. On the other hand, plentiful sources of C make it not worth it.
        Probiotics is also a retarded catch-all and is shear quackery through obfuscation. Such generalities should be applied to the whole chart and it would only be one big circle of dietary supplements.

          Vitamin C is useful on a 18th century ship if you don’t eat fruits for months… but in modern times?

            Depends on the diet. If you’re into fast food and shun fries (surprisingly good with Vitamin C, if they’re 100% potatoes) it might make sense.

              Buy ascorbic acid from eg purebulk. Add baking soda and water to turn it into sodium ascorbate.

      >All nutrients – proteins, starches, sugars, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and millions of unknowns – interact. Each requires all of the other nutrients in varying amounts to be properly utilized. All supplements lack most of the balancing nutrients, especially bioactive enzymes. If all are not present, the body leaches nutrients from its own supply (if it can afford to). Supplements create a balance/depletion see-saw effect.
      no.

        caveat to this:

        the only type of supplements that are good for you are those that are FOOD
