Ask the Experts: What Vitamins Should I Be Taking?

Oct 29, 2019 02:11PM

Q: What vitamins should I be taking?

A: How’s your diet? That's the start of your journey to introducing the correct vitamins. No two bodies are alike, and what you put in your body is the most important fact that impacts your health. The link to exactly what nutrients you’re missing may be just a blood test away. Micronutrient testing (simply a blood test) will give you a clear understanding of what your own nutritional status is. Once you have a clear understanding of your deficiencies, go to your local health food store so they can direct you to the types of vitamins/minerals that you need most. Remember: Always talk with your doctor, as many medications may interfere with certain supplements.

Q: How many movements are in a symphony?

A: There are typically four movements in a symphony. The first is fast with allegro tempo (brisk and lively pace) and often follows a “sonata” format, where there are three sections (exposition, development, and recapitulation). The second is a slow and lyrical movement, usually with andate or adagio (walking or slow pace) tempo. The third is typically a dance in a scherzo, or minuet, format. Scherzo means “joke” and is a quick, light-hearted movement that’s usually in a triple meter (three beats per measure). The fourth is the finale, which has a faster and more energetic pace than the first movement.
