Nutritional First Aid Kit
Some supplements might only be necessary during periods of illness, stress or travel. Think about the following supplements as part of your nutritional first aid kit, says Christine Doherty, ND, medical director of Balance Point Natural Medicine in Milford, New Hampshire, and founder of GlutenFreeVitamins.com. Probiotics. Probiotics can help improve the health of your gut, Doherty says. The key is there is no right formula for everybody. Unfortunately, the research is at the stage where we know probiotics are important but the only real tool we have for figuring out which ones are best is trial and error. When you find the ones that work, you will feel better and your gut will work better.
