How many supplements or vitamins should I be taking?

Stay on any supplements or vitamins recommended by a health care professional for any conditions you may have. And, stay on up to about three extra supplements or vitamins which often includes a multivitamin and an omega-3.  Any supplements or vitamins above and beyond that are your excess vitamins or supplements.

Week 2: Reduce your excess vitamins or supplements by 50%.

Week 3: Reduce your excess vitamins or supplements by 75%.

Week 4: No more excess vitamins or supplements.
