Curious about the top supplements out there? This nutritionist's guide to dietary supplements is here to set the record straight and take away the confusion.

But other times, they really are needed if you have a nutritional deficiency. For instance, I take omega-3 supplements made from algae because I don't get those omega-3s from seafood as a vegetarian. Learn which top supplements to pick (and which to skip!) if you want to feel your best.
