What should I avoid while taking a nutritional supplement?

While taking a nutritional supplement, avoid taking more of the supplement than you need to.

If people who already have a healthy diet take nutritional supplements consistently, it may lead to complications resulting from obesity or an overdose of vitamins or minerals.

Depending on the condition the nutritional supplement is treating, you may have to avoid other activities to get the most out of your treatment.

Talk to your doctor before starting any supplement.
