• The limitations of association studies in determining the effectiveness of supplementation
• The concept of Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs) and their significance
• The importance of personalization and context when considering supplementation
• How to critically evaluate supplement recommendations and avoid unnecessary expenses
• Understanding the historical perspective and robustness of human nutrition before the supplement era
• Specific supplements discussed include: Vitamin D, fish oil, creatine, multi-vitamins, BCAAs, and more!
