3 EASY MISTAKES TO MAKE WITH VITAMINS
Finding the right combination of vitamins that work for you can be very tricky, especially because there’s so much choice. That’s why we’ve made a list of the three most common mistakes people make when starting with vitamins.
1. ONE SIZE DOESN’T FIT ALL
The best thing would be if one pill could solve every issue you have, right? Some of you might’ve seen the movie Limitless, where this magic pill completely transforms the main antagonist in a single moment. It gives him full focus, turns him into a more attractive person and gives him instant communication skills that Steve Jobs would be jealous of, all from a pill the size of a button.
Unfortunately, one tiny capsule can only hold so much. To get the number of vitamins and minerals the body needs, you’ll need a certain volume of active ingredients depending on the nutrient. A multi-vitamin pill will give you a little bit of everything but not enough of anything.
2. COMPARING PRICES INSTEAD OF DOSES
Always read your labels. It’s the best way of knowing whether you get value for money. Take Omega-3 for instance: in one of our articles, we compared our Fish Oil to a few brands in health stores and supermarkets.
The average omega 3 blend has 180mg EPA and 120mg DHA per soft gel, which are the two most important Omega 3 fatty acids. We’ve managed to source a very pure fish oil concentrate which allows us to put 500mg of EPA and 250mg DHA in just one soft gel. you get a clean and working dose in just one soft gel, instead of having to swallow three doses to get the same results.
3. COMBINING THE WRONG VITAMINS
Combining the wrong vitamins will not immediately harm your health, but it will definitely interfere with the absorption of the much-needed nutrients. Make sure to get the professional opinion of a doctor or nutritionist before making your own vitamin curation. At Pack’d, we work with nutritionists that advice the best sportsmen in our country.
