Underrated Vs. Overrated: Supplements, mental health, and working out with friends.

Here are three things you should know.💡

👉Firstly, not everyone needs to take supplements. “It’s possible to get all of the nutrients you need by eating a variety of healthy foods, so you don’t have to take one,” says Carol Haggans, a registered dietitian. “But supplements can be useful for filling in gaps in your diet.”

One way to figure out what vitamins and supplements to take is to look carefully at the nutritional value of all the foods in your diet and see how close you come to the RDI recommended by the FDA for each essential vitamin and mineral. 🥗🥑🍲🍕🍅

👉This one is important. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
