Ep. 189 - Supplement Series P3: The Truth About Vitamins, Probiotics & Omegas

In the next instalment of our #SupplementSeries, we dissect some of the most popular health supplements, from multivits, vitamin C and D, probiotics and omegas. Throughout, we consider whether you actually need them, when they may be useful, common mistakes, best practices and also dietary considerations if vegan or vegetarian. We also touch on how to spot the BS with supplements, and where some of the crazy marketing all stems from. Again, if you’ve spent more money on supplements than on your bills, this series is just for you.
