How do you know if you need to take a supplement? That’s a tough question. In the ideal world you’d have a blood test but that’s not a realistic option for most of us, so beyond that it is a bit of trial and error. Start by looking at your diet. If you have a normal healthy and balanced diet with plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and do just a small amount of training then there should be no need to supplement your diet. If however, you are putting your body through a lot of stress for example training for an IM or you do not get a good balance from your food then supplements could help make up that nutritional deficit.
