Health Tip of the Day

When Do You Need a Vitamin or Mineral Supplement?

Supplements are not substitutes. They can't replace the variety of necessary nutrients found in whole foods, but you might need them:

  • If you frequently skip meals or don't eat enough fruits, vegetables, grain and dairy products.

  • If you're on a low-calorie diet.

  • If you're a strict vegetarian.

  • If you can't drink milk or eat yogurt.

  • If you're a woman of child-bearing age and don't eat fruits and vegetables.

  • If you are pregnant.

Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is called the "silent killer" because it has no symptoms. If high blood pressure remains unchecked, it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, and more. You can stop this silent killer — if you catch it in time.
