Taking Suppliements with McDonalds Nutrition

If you are on diet, you frequently require or take various vitamin and mineral supplements. When you select the type, brand and amount, be sure to consider possible side effects. Check with your doctor and stick to the recommended doses for your age, gender and size. This will make them “safe”.

Remember, even the most innocuous vitamin or mineral can produce negative effects within your body if taken incorrectly. B vitamins can trigger off various health problems if the dosage is too high. If C, D or E are swallowed in larger than acceptable amounts, your stomach will pay with cramps, abdominal pain, nausea and/or diarrhoea. Overdosing on calcium also creates digestive tract troubles. Zinc in high doses can lower your LDL and cause gastrointestinal problems.
If you are a vegetarian, on a restricted diet or trying to lose weight you may need to take supplements, particularly vitamins B-12 and D and the minerals calcium, zinc and iron. Do so, but be careful with the dosage.
