Smart Woman: Power Pills: Four Supplements That Work

Posted:
Lynchburg, VA - The vitamin and supplement industry is a $30 billion-a-year industry.

Despite more than 40% of adults in the country taking them daily, most of these vitamins and supplements have no measurable health benefits.

There are literally thousands of them to choose from; but how do you know which supplements actually work? Here are some of the most beneficial.

First: Vitamin D. A 2013 meta-analysis of 42 studies found daily vitamin-d use actually decreased mortality rates.

It can also strengthen bones and protect against colds, but the best remedy against a cold is zinc.

A 2011 study showed zinc supplements shortened the length of a cold and made symptoms less severe. A review of 11 controlled trials found garlic supplements can actually help lower blood pressure.
