I was just sent this interesting graphic showing how much food you would have to eat in order to get the max daily doses of the equivalent supplements.
Disclaimer: This was made by a supplement company…surprise, surprise!
In any event, it’s interesting but I’ll stick to getting my nutrition through whole foods. I’ll take some fish oil and B vitamins from time to time, but eating whole foods is so much better than taking supplements any day.
Also, several of these supplements listed below are not essential, especially in the amounts illustrated.
What do you think about this graphic?
Do you prefer supplements or whole foods?
