When summing up, yes, there are substances to be found in many dietary supplements to be considered as poison for our health and longevity. As long as this is not under control of our government and disapproved by the FDA, you may refrain from these supplements and replace them by real health food. Read on to learn more about.
THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
Needless to stress that healthy diet – besides physical activity - is one of our basic prerequisites for health and longevity. However, since many of us have no precise idea which diet is – and which is not – healthy, they simply replace many nutrients by dietary supplements from health food stores or the internet. Seemingly to make sure they don’t miss any healthy food this way. So far so good? Not necessarily.
According to research the Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, OH, incorporating the Center for Injury Research and Policy as well as the Central Ohio Poison Center, U.S. poison control centers received more than 250,000 from homes where children (most of them 6 years and older) swallowed dietary supplements.
Based on certain substances such as botanicals, amino acids cultural medicines (especially yohimbe) and energy products, etc.
With yohimbe being especially dangerous for causing heart beat rhythm, heart attacks, seizure, kidney failures – and even death.
Also energy products like energy drinks, seemingly improving our energy, can cause seizures, as well as heart and breathing problems.
Since dietary supplements are not considered drugs, they are not required to be based on clinical trials or get FDA approval for appropriate labeling and warnings about contamination.
IN A NUTSHELL
