So, I've been wary of taking supplements for a long time -- mostly just because they were pricey, and it's hard to differentiate the snake-oil claims from what really works. I know most of your essential nutrients should come from food, but in reality, my low budget, my low energy levels, and my compromised kitchen space means I don't always have the resources to prepare a healthful meal every day. A bunch of self-help books and stuff say that taking supplements can make a lot of difference, and it's something I'm interested in trying. I know that not every supplement works for every individual, but before I drop a lot of money at a health food store, I was interested in just getting a kind of survey about what most people are trying and how it works, so I have some idea of where to start. Thanks in advance!
