Since I’m creating my perfect formula (on the paper), I’m facing a huge doubts regarding the vitamins and minerals absorption and even more regarding its possible deficit or OD.
Q1: is using the mineral and vitamin supplements efficient? won’t they just mainly dissolve and get out of the body? In that case there is a huge risk of vitamin deficit in the long run…
Q2: if the body uses only a part of vitamins and minerals, is increasing of its amount going to help?
Also OD is in my opinion possible too since many of these minerals and vitamins are already contained in oats, protein supplements, etc. In some cases you just cannot see the complete nutrition facts when browsing online vendors (outside U.S.)
Q3: anyone have some tips how to prevent this?
Q4: is there any difference in ability of absorbing vit&min from the main supplements and from the “only-vitamin or mineral” supplements? Does using more fiber help?
thanks for any tips
