We recently told you about a study that found essentially all vitamin supplements did nothing to benefit your health and that you shouldn’t take any of them.

Well…maybe SOME of them!

Smithsonian.com took a second look at the research and determined there ARE some supplements that are worth taking:

Vitamin D  Scientists aren’t sure exactly why, but people who take vitamin D live longer.  It’s also supposed to help prevent the flu and bone breaks and it can’t hurt you, so there’s no harm if you take it.

Probiotics  Apparently, there are TRILLIONS of GOOD bacterial cells living inside your gut, and if you do a round of antibiotics they can get wiped out.  Taking probiotics can restore the balance and might help you with any digestive issues.

Zinc  You may have heard that vitamin C can prevent colds.  That’s not true, but scientists figured out that ZINC can.  Zinc also lessons cold symptoms and helps you recover faster.

Niacin Over-the-counter niacin is supposed to reduce strokes and heart attacks for people with heart disease.

Garlic It gives you bad breath, but if you’ve got high blood pressure, studies show that garlic helps lower it.  It’s also supposed to prevent cancer, but the jury’s still out on that one.

Now you know!
