Marketing and Multi-Vitamins

johanna mcclain    When you decide you need to boost your energy and supplement your diet by beginning a multi-vitamin regimen…what’s the first step?  Research.  Do your homework to find the product(s) that will best suite your health goals.  Once you have made a decision, a purchase and you take your first daily dose…do you expect instant results?  Do you take your supplement one day and based on those results decide if it works or not. If your answer is YES you have set yourself up for failure.  The correct answer is NO!  It takes time and it takes paying attention to the subtle and not so subtle effects.  Then it takes adjusting your regimen not abandoning your regimen for optimal results.
