Most of us have taken vitamins since we were children. While we may not be taking Flintstone’s supplements that are shaped like fun cartoon characters any more, we all still try to take our daily dose of goodness to keep healthy. We can even take them in gummy chew form now! However, did you know that vitamins can be harmful if not taken correctly? Here are some tips from Senior Care Corner to make sure you’re on the right track:
- Be sure to read the fine print on labels. Even though these are over the counter medications, take dosages seriously. You can overdose from vitamins and some have serious effects.
- Be sure the brand is well known and trusted. As Senior Care Corner states, vitamins aren’t regulated very strictly and as such, an off brand can lie about what those capsules are.
- Most importantly, speak with a medical professional about every supplement you take.
Whether it’s A, B, C, or D, vitamins are meant to help you, if taken correctly. However, it is important to pay attention to everything you put in your body, even these supplements.
