Podcast 53: Are your supplements really killing you?

Wendy and Dr. Meaghan welcome Dr. Patrick Quigley back to BTBHA podcast.  Today we are talking about the truth behind supplementation.  We review the research and discuss many different issues that are with articles that just completely disregard the need for supplementation.

 

Many times the research that is referenced is flawed by methodology and/or design study.  Many times it is the wrong form of the drug, small dose, or comorbidity of the population that was not properly controlled.  A perfect example of this is the Iowa Women's Study.  Another example is the way that dl-alpha-tocopherol is constantly used in studies to discredit supplementation and Vitamin E.  This is a synthetic Vitamin E that comes from coal tar.  There is a lot of research out there about the benefits and antioxidant power of gamma-tocopheral (a powerful form of Vitamin E).  Even though this natural Vitamin 

E is known to have many positive benefits, research uses the synthetic version and then makes negative claims about all Vitamin E.

 

 

This is a great podcast to listen to as we have a roundtable podcast discussion about the research and clinically what we have seen with supplementation.
