The Info on Supplements

Article by Zachari Hunt

What you don’t know about Supplements….

With the current wellness shift*, and if you don’t know what I’m talking about I’ll explain, many people are focusing on supplementation. Supplementation is important not only for your general health, but in contributing to weight loss as well. However, there is an enormous amount of information out there and if you aren’t educated in nutrition or do not have experience or good advice when it comes to choosing supplements, you could be throwing your money away.

So, if you’ll pardon the weight loss pun…here’s the skinny on supplements. I’m actually going to break this into three parts due to the vast amount of information and we’re going to start with vitamin/mineral supplements.

The Skinny on Supplementation

As most everyone knows, our bodies need proper nutrition to function well. What many may not realize is that through genetic modification (of food, not people), processing to extend “shelf life”, pesticides and other lovely things that “happen” to the food we consume, our bodies are not getting the complete nutrition they need.

Here’s another scary fact: the nutraceutical industry isn’t regulated. I’m going to let that sink in a minute….not regulated.

What that means to us regular folks, is that manufacturers can use whatever component they want, whether it works or not, slap a label on it, and get you to pay for it. Why? Because companies realize how very uneducated people are in regards to this! If it looks like a vitamin and smells like a vitamin, it must be a vitamin. Wrong!

Shopping for Supplements So, now that you have enough information to be dangerous, let me give you some quick tips for supplement shopping.

Be certain it’s chelated (I’ll explain that in a minute) Research reputable companies Don’t expect people at retail vitamin stores to know everything. Larger amounts don’t equal better deals Okay, chelated (key-lay-ted).As a general rule, our bodies do not absorb minerals.For a good vitamin/mineral supplement to be effective it needs to be chelated.Chelation means that the minerals are attached to an amino acid, which your body recognizes and absorbs.

So, where you get about 2-3% absorption in a vitamin /mineral that isn’t chelated, your absorption rate can climb as high as 40-50% with the right supplement.If you buy a supplement that is not chelated, you are literally flushing your money away.

Research reputable companies.The reason I say this is the aforementioned lack of regulation in this industry.Do your due diligence and make sure you know what they stand behind.Are they willing to refund your money if it doesn’t work? What moved them to put that formula together in the first place? What kind of laboratory do they create them in? Do they know where their ingredients come from, can they answer that question?Big questions, I know, but when it involves your health there are no shortcuts.

The reason I said not to expect retail salespeople to know everything is, they are there to sell you a product, ANY product.Rarely do they know the full spectrum of every product and company they offer. Be smart, you only have one body; there are no do-overs.

Okay, last but not least, buying in bulk isn’t always better. I love big warehouse stores as much as the next person, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you are getting the best product. Here’s an example…a certain store sells gummy vitamins for kids. The nutritional value in ONE children’s vitamin from the company I get my supplements through is equal to…get this, four and a half POUNDS of those gummy “vitamins”. So, while those might be cheaper and come in bigger packages, it doesn’t mean they’re a better deal.

To sum it up, pay attention to what you are buying. Do your research and make sure it’s right for you and if you have questions, talk to people who can help you get the skinny on supplements and head you in the right direction for your own wellness.

As you approach Primm, you’ll be flagged down by a NCR trooper. He’ll explain that former NCR convicts have taken over Primm. Trouble is that you need the Primm deputy sheriff to inform you where your would-be murderer is. To start with, cross the bridge at the south-west end of the NCR to enter Primm. You will most likely be attacked by up to 3 or 5 convicts who hear you come running. Once you are relatively safe, enter the Mojave Express office on your right as you go east down Primm’s main street. If you have 55 Science and 35 Repair, or 3 scrap metals, scrap electronics, and 2 sensor modules, you can activate the companion ED-E. Unlike most Fallout 3 companions, New Vegas companions are very powerful and are immortal unless you are in hardcore mode. With your new friend. follow your quest marker into the Vikki and Vance casino to find Primm survivors. Johnathan Nash will inform you that the Deputy will know your attackers next stop. While you are in the casino, you may want to interact with the plaque near the car on display. Speak with the robot Primm Slim and, with 50 Science, get him to tell you the location of Vance’s Gun. The gun is all the way near New Vegas, so more on it later. John’s wife Ruby can make a wholesome casserole for each scorpion gland you give her. With your quest marker set to Deputy Beagle, thanks to Johnny, head to the Bison Steve. Snipe the first convict you see or let ED-E handle him. In the entrance room, pick the locked door on the right
