Taking too many supplements side effects
Our body treats us back just the way we treat our body. Eating loads of food but not balancing your diet, will only give your body energy to work but not the stamina and strength required to produce carbon content and nutrition to various organs. It is very important that we focus on a balanced diet. But due to our food habits, our body doesn’t gain the essential minerals and nutrients. We substitute supplements to do the job. Supplements can enrich your body function and organ vitality but only to a limited extent.
It is crucial to keep in mind that when we start taking supplements, we should also carry on with body exercises and healthy eating, cheat meals and junk are allowed once or twice a week but not everyday. Supplements to our body are like lubricants to the machine, a machine doesn’t stop working by its own after being lubricated, similarly after taking supplements its important for us to exercise, walk/jog/run. Exercise is defined as any movement that makes your muscles work and requires your body to burn calories. Exercise has been shown to improve your mood and decrease feelings of depression, anxiety and stress. Your body spends energy in three ways: digesting food, exercising and maintaining body functions like your heartbeat and breathing.Our digestive tract should pause for a while from the routine food digest and that is the main reason for eating clean and healthy.
Keep in mind the following points:
- Too much creatine can, in rare cases, cause side effects including weight gain, anxiety, breathing difficulty, diarrhea, fatigue, fever, headache, kidney problems, nausea, vomiting, rash and upset stomach.
- Excess vitamin C consumption can lead to nausea, diarrhea and stomach cramps.
- Taking too much selenium can result in hair loss, gastrointestinal upset, fatigue and mild nerve damage.
It is very important to eat clean. Eating more fruit and vegetables can help significantly reduce your risk for a number of chronic diseases, including high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity and cancer. The fiber in whole produce also helps keep your microbiome (the collection of good bacteria that live in your gut) happy, which can reduce your risk for autoimmune diseases, fight off pathogens and infections and even improve your mood.
We're not opposed to all processed foods. Technically when we chop, mix and cook at home we are processing foods. The trouble is that so much of processed food at the grocery store is processed beyond the point of recognition. Nature certainly didn't color those chips that neon color of orange or make blue candy-colored cereal. Keep an eye out for anything with lots of sugar and refined grains, super-long ingredient lists with foods you don't recognize and anything with partially hydrogenated oils
Supplements are our saviours, but Consult your Doctor before you take any supplements.
