Supplements Working?

Did you know that doubling up on your supplements isn't always the answer to getting double the power?!

Antagonism is a term defined as the involvement of multiple agents reducing their overall effect. 

There are many times when you may think taking two supplements at the same time means you're giving your body extra love but truly, this may not be leading to the desired effect.

For example: 

1. If you have been taking soy protein and Iron at the same time, the soy inhibits the absorption of iron in your body

2. If you've been increasing your magnesium, it can decrease your  phosphate absorption

3. Excessive iron intake can interfere with zinc absorption

So before you think about fueling up and popping some supplements, be sure they're leading to the desired outcome!
