It is a great idea to take Noor Vitamins; dietary supplements can seriously help your overall health. Does the back of the vitamin bottle tell you everything you need to know? What else do you need to know about how to select the right vitamins for your body?

1.     It might be more important to get vitamins from food than supplements

Health supplements and vitamins are great, and they can give you the boost you need. But, that does not take away from the fact that you should still be eating a diet rich in vegetables and nutrients.

 

2.     Vitamin K2 might be just as important as calcium for older women

It’s no secret that as women age, they naturally lose some of their bone density. Calcium is a common supplement, but K2 is not as popular. It can be just as beneficial as calcium.

 

3.     Vitamin D and sunburn

While we might have Vitamin D deficiencies because we spend less time in the sun these days, you might need to take Vitamin D even if you spend time in the sun. Studies show that it might help reduce inflammation in your body after you get a sunburn.

 

4.     Whey Protein helps build muscles

Sure, many bodybuilders use whey protein, but did you know it can also help repair muscles in elderly people as we age?

 

5.     Storage temperature matters

How and where you store your vitamins is an important part of getting the most out of your vitamins. While most vitamins should not be stored in extreme heat or extreme cold, read the labels. Some vitamins are affected by the temperature of the room in which they are stored.


6.     Folic Acid might help with long term health

Folic Acid might not be on everyone’s radar. Sure, it is well known to be good for pregnant women. Studies also show that it could reduce the risk of stroke and heart attacks in older people.

7.     Too much Vitamin C

Yes, you can get too much of this popular vitamin. High doses of this vitamin could cause side effects like nausea and headaches. In most cases, you can still take your multivitamin and drink orange juice. “Too much” Vitamin C does not usually occur until you consume over 2,000 or 3,000mg per day.

8.     Your genetics might make some vitamins ineffective

If you are having trouble absorbing vitamins properly, it might be due to genetics. Speak to your healthcare provider if this is a concern.

9.      Vitamins might not improve mental health as much as you hope

There have been studies done that show vitamins do not improve mental health and depression as much as other alternatives like exercise and rest. Be sure to consult with your mental health care provider before trying to use vitamins to help with depression or any other mental illness.

 

10. Make sure you have the right amount of magnesium if taking Vitamin D

If you do not have enough magnesium in your diet, your body might not be able to properly absorb any Vitamin D supplements you consume.
