So, as some of you know, I have a part time gig as a cosmitician in a drug store. As such, I get store brand (and others) vitamins such as Iron and Calcium at a discounted price. So, I buy them, I take them, I assume they are doing something beneificial.
Well, I was talking to an aquaintance (who happens to be a herbal supplement distributor) who has suggested that the store bought supplements are useless and I might as well be taking sugar pills and the only supplements that are useful are those from companies such as hers.
So - is she right? Am I doing myself no good by taking these vitamins and do I need to switch, or is her opinion as self-serving as it sounds?
