    • Good question. I’m 100% in favor of eating the food rather than taking the supplement. There is a kind of “entourage” effect. The particular food has the vitamin or mineral or other substances the supplement is said to have, but it has so much more. It brings an entourage of other phytochemicals that make it way better that a supplement could ever be. The supplement is reductionist. It is reduced to one element, whereas the food has so much more. Besides, when you combine foods, they bolster their combined effects. Besides the food is less expensive than the supplement and some of those supplements can have a negative effect on some people. Also, the FDA does not regulate supplements so you may not be getting what you think you are getting at all. I admit I do take some supplements because these particular ones are supposed to help fight/prevent cancer. HOWEVER, I get them mainly through my whole food plant based diet. If I had to choose between them, I’d go with the food any day.
