Supplement validation

Sometimes I feel like a druggie given how many pills I take in the morning and night. Most of them are for my cholesterol (fish oil, flax seed oil, and niacin) although I’ve been taking vitamin D since moving to Seattle.

I’ve taken the supplements mentioned because they’ve either been recommended by my doctor or I’ve read enough evidence of their effectiveness to warrant giving them a shot. My cholesterol levels have been under control since I started the omega 3 / omega 6 / vitamin B3 trifecta so I have some personal evidence to back it up.

Information is Beautiful has a great interactive infographic ranking common supplements based on the existing scientific evidence. All of mine rank above their ‘worth it’ line – what about yours?
