Are you getting your recommended daily dose of vitamins? According to GenSpec most of us are not getting the correct vitamins not simply because we don't take them, but because we don't take the right ones for our ethnic group. Yup, that's right, for our ethnic group. Their premise is based around our ethnic groups: African American, Hispanic and Caucasian. So, they did what any good capitalist would do, they started a company to benefit from this. Now, I'm not hating on their hustle and it probably is some truth to it. I for one did and still do buy into the "Eating for your Blood Type" diet (although I'm not disciplined enough to follow it for longer than a day or two). However, what I don't buy into is (ethnic groups are so diverse and mixed) that these three formulas will provide all of what I need because my skin is dark. What happens if someone is 50% black and 50% white? What if that is their mix and their skin is dark should they get African American? What happens if they look Caucasian (and to those of you that do not know this happens it does)? What does my family do since we are Black Hispanics? I guess if you're Asian you shouldn't go to GenSpec because it doesn't seem like they have figured out what to do with you yet.
Well, I'm just going to stick with my Dr. Shultze's SuperFoods and regular old vitamins the two have not let me down yet. Well...except last year when I had the flu and the time before that when I had a cold and when I ... oh, yea...my bad, I stopped taking my vitamins for a year then. Do you think that had anything to do with me being sick? (Oh, a shout out to one of my favorite blogs lightskinneded girl for highlighting this company first. I couldn't pass this one up!)
