Dos & Don'ts of Natural Supplements
Claiming that a product is natural can be very tricky. "Natural" is defined as existing in or caused by nature; not made or caused by humankind.

In today's food chain, it's almost impossible to have food or drugs in a natural form. It's very likely that the product has been processed or developed by manufacturing companies and does not come directly from the earth.

So when buying natural products, how do you know which ones you can trust?

Holly Lucille, ND, RN, joins host Melanie Cole to discuss natural supplements and how to decide which natural supplements to use.
