Vitamins – Vitamin Supplements

£1.00

In this leaflet we answer the questions, is there any evidence that people with M.E. are vitamin-deficient? Do they need to be taking what can be quite expensive supplements? And, do vitamin supplements pose any harm to health?

Description

“UK consumers buy more vitamin supplements than any other over-the-counter drug – even though taking a reasonably balanced diet should provide all the vitamins that most
people require.

“But is there any evidence that people with M.E. are vitamin-deficient and do they need to be taking what can be quite expensive supplements? Also, can taking vitamin supplements cause any harm to your health?”

Dr Charles Shepherd (Hon. Medical Adviser to the ME Association) considers the research evidence for vitamin supplements as relief for M.E. symptoms and explains what vitamins are and the vital role they can play in maintaining health.
