4. Healthy people take the right vitamins
Work with a naturopathic doctor or healthcare practitioner to figure out what supplements you really need, suggests Fennell. “I often meet new patients that are taking numerous vitamins that actually counteract one another. Not everyone needs the same supplement,” she says. If you take a multivitamin, find the right one for you—some multivitamins are created for different age groups and contain different nutrients for men and women. “Remember that quality counts, and some vitamins can contain fillers and can be hard to absorb. Stick with reputable brands that are tested for quality control,” Fennell adds.
