Top Supplements for Wellness

Posted to: Wellness Blog by Dr. Joanne on Jan 17, 2015

Do I need to take supplements if I want to stay healthy?

Today, supplementing with this vitamin is pretty much standard care even among medical doctors.  Another example is iodine, which may need to be supplemented if you do not eat enough seaweed or seafood.  So while it’s not necessary to have a cupboard full of vitamins, supplementing to fill in holes in your diet is important.
