Tip of the Day

Many people take vitamin and mineral supplements to make up for nutritional shortfalls in their diet. These can offer benefits that are both safe and effective when taken in consultation with a health professional. Supplements may help when:

*A hectic lifestyle frequently keeps you from eating the recommended number of servings of each category in the food guide pyramid

*You are on a very low calorie weight loss diet

*You are a strict vegetarian

*You are elderly and not eating as much as you should

*You cannot drink milk or eat cheese and yogurt
