Vitamins and Supplements are a multi-billion dollar a year industry that affect half of all Americans. Join Dr. Doug and Linda as we discuss why we take them, what to expect and not expect from them, and how to personalize which ones are right for you.
We're talking supplements! Audrey has had extensive training on supplements, but Ally's often on the oppositive side when it comes to taking them. Who will come out on top?!
Are Pre-Workouts Bad for You?
When you want to get the most out of your workout, you make sure every rep, step and weight really counts. Of course, dragging yourself out of bed first thing for a workout can be less than inspiring. Enter the pre-workout supplement, designed to help amp you up for a better, more effective workout. But before you down that caffeine-laced drink, make sure you know how it's going to affect your body during exercise -- you may find that a natural alternative is a healthier choice.
While different pre-wrokout supplements make different claims, their main purpose is to supposedly help you get more out of your workout by increasing your energy and blood flow to the extremities. When taken before a workout, they're designed to help you have better focus, lift heavier and have more energy for a tough workout. A study published in a 2010 issue of the "Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition" found that using a pre-workout before exercise did increase cardiovascular activity and anaerobic running capacity in subjects.

The great debate: should kids be given supplements or not? Does age make a difference? When are they necessary, if at all? If so, what and how much? Also, how do you know which ones are reliable? What foods best take the place of supplements? Some see taking vitamins as an insurance policy, especially for picky eaters. What should a mom or dad do for their babies, toddlers and school children? We are so fortunate to have Dr. Bob Sears from the Sears Pediatric family as our guest in the Family Food Experts Kitchen this week to discuss the medical facts about nutrient supplements. He will give you guidelines to follow when making your own decisions. In other words, he will educate you so you can customize what is best for your family!
