> I am concerned that superfood says that it contains 2-5 times the amount of vitamins and minerals that my body needs. I just want to take a good amount of these items.. not 2-5 times more than I need.
> Can you explain that sentence any further?
I think the 2-5 numbers are more marketing vs an oudated RDA. Per se - superfood doesn't contain the 5000% numbers you see on some b vitamins and multiples. The highest is 400% on a few of the b's - so 4x. And that is 4x what the rda says you need - not necessarily what studies have shown since or what we really need as stress, etc have increased. But you will assimilate it more because its coming from plants, etc not dead horse and oyster shells.
I also get a kick out of commercials for drugs - tylenol even. Like your headache or Depression
is caused by your body's deficiency in prozac or tylenol...lol
