I know you share my experience: You stand at the store in the vitamin aisle, and suddenly everything you thought you knew flies out of your brain. There are hundreds of supplements in front of you, vying for your attention and
your pocketbook. You read some labels. You compare some costs. And you choose something, not at all sure if it's exactly the right thing.
Maybe you decide on a multi-vitamin, or a nutritional supplement. Maybe it is an antioxidant, or something that's supposed to help your joints. Is it for your memory? Your energy level? Is it for your gender, for your age, your stage in life? There are so many questions and so many combinations possible that sometimes it takes an expert to cut through all the confusion.
