Too many vitamins just as bad as too few

A University of Minnesota researcher recently published a study showing that women who take a lot of vitamins die sooner than women who don’t.

vitaminsThe study found that women who took multivitamins were 6 percent more likely to die than others. Vitamin B6 and iron supplements were associated with a 10 percent increase in death, and taking folic acid increased it by 15 percent.

Considering that this is an “associative” study (not cause and effect), these findings are not be significant enough to suggest we stop taking vitamin supplements, but they do remind us that, in the human body, too much can be as detrimental as too little. Hence, the golden rule of good health:

“Everything in moderation.”

    Astaxanthin at first comes from a microalgae named Haematococcus pluvialis. The rationale it is possible to obtain it in lots of animals, especially in maritime animals is given that they take in this plant and then digest it, thus acquiring additional astaxanthin in their bodies.The top foods for this remarkable carotenoid are marine vegetation, salmon, shrimp, trout along with other seafoods.

    Hi Elizabeth, Just read your article in Momentum. A very appropriate topic that should be addressed more often. As a single person with M.S., I don’t cook much & don’t eat as well as I should. I am interested in trying your recipes & cooking method. Do you have a suggestion on where to get the dutch oven? I would like a 4 qt size. Some of them seem to be very heavy & also expensive. I do want to get a good one. Thanks for your help. Gail
