When it comes to supplements, Alexa wasn’t initially a fan. She reflects on her thoughts about taking them, saying: “I thought it was a cop-out to eating healthy and nourishing foods. I specifically remember having a very heated debate with my husband’s roommate, who religiously consumed protein powder on a regular basis – I couldn’t understand why he chose a supplement over real, healthy foods! Of course, at that age, I thought I already knew everything.” (Sound like you, or someone you know?)

Well, 10 years later, Alexa reports that her view has changed dramatically. To learn why, check out Supplements – Do you need to take them? over at There, you’ll also find an exclusive podcast interview with our medical director, Dr. Erin Stokes, that goes even deeper on the topic!
