As part of the Paleo diet, the “expectation” is that you generally should get all of the nutrients your body needs through food. That being said, some of the biggest and smartest names in the community — Robb Wolf, Chris Kresser, and Mark Sission, just to name a few — recommend SMART supplementing to round things out, particularly as your body is recovering from the Standard American Diet way of eating and because large agro has left our soil depleted of many minerals our body needs (e.g. magnesium).
The key word here, in case you didn’t pick up on it, is “smart.” Their advice, in my opinion, isn’t a get out of jail free card to risk your health on the latest pills/powder/drink claiming to be the magic cure-all we’ve all been waiting for.
And this is probably why I enjoyed this commentary so much. It’s a long watch, but you’ll enjoy it.
