Show Notes

Coach Scott Abel discusses the myths surrounding vitamins and health.

The supplement industry is largely unregulated, and it is governed first and foremost by marketing rather than a real concern for your health.

Scott discusses some findings and research reported in the website Business Insider, and offers his own additional insights and experiences from his work in the supplement industry, and his work with clients who have had less than stellar experiences with supplements.

 

What’s real and what’s fake about vitamins

  • Many new supplements specifically target affluent women. This is a growing trend.
  • Back in the early 20th century, the first vitamins were isolated and synthesized as a response to combat malnutrition. Scott claims that nowadays we have “over-nutrition,” not malnutrition.
  • Lies spread faster than truths, especially in the supplement industry.
  • Scott likes Michael Pollan’s work. Of particular relevance, here is the fact that real foods may be what’s best, but no one advertises it. You don’t hear huge ad campaigns for apples. You do for supplements, pills, potions, and “snack foods” or other branded food items. But for the basics? No. Because people can’t make money off of those, even if they’re the best choice.
