Are you confused about supplements?

I mean, which ones do you really need? And which brands are the best?

Can you take too much? What are the right amounts to take each day?

These are some of the questions I asked Clinical Nutritionist and Traditional Naturopath, David Getoff, when he came back to the Better Beyond 50 podcast.

Now, I’ve heard some nutritional “experts” say that we don’t need to take supplements at all—they claim that we can get all the nutrients we need from a healthy diet.

But David Getoff says this is NOT true.

He says, research shows very clearly that supplements are absolutely essential to getting all of the nutrients we need.

While our grandparents didn’t need supplements we do.


Because the quality of the food we have available today isn’t even close to the quality of food our grandparents ate 100 years ago—the foods we’re eating today are LACKING in the nutrients we need to look and feel our absolute best.

While the poisons in our environment continue to increase, and the more that food manufacturers continue to hybridize and genetically modify foods to make them ship better, pack better, last longer, and look better, the nutritional value of our food continues to decrease.

EVEN IF you’re already eating a healthy diet—because the foods available today are so nutrient-depleted—there’s no way you’re getting everything you need.

Everyone has some degree of nutritional deficiencies, so taking supplements is required if you want optimal health.

Here’s what you’ll discover is this interview:

* Why you NEVER want to take a Centrum one-a-day multivitamin.

* Why taking a multivitamin can actually make you feel sick. (This is very interesting!)

* What to look for on the label to make sure you’re choosing the best multivitamin.

* The 8 key supplements you need and how much of each you should take each day.

* Why it’s important to get your vitamin D levels tested before you starting taking a vitamin D3 supplement. (And the ideal range your vitamin D levels should be—it’s not what most doctors recommend.)

* Why most probiotics are garbage. (And how to choose a good one).

You’ll leave this interview with a complete supplement plan—you’ll know which supplements you need, which brands are the best and how much you should take every day to get the nutrients you need.
