The Supplement Pyramid could help people build their own personalized nutritional regimen

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Vitamins and mineral supplements make up a multi-billion dollar industry here in the United States.

"75% of Americans are taking supplements. That's good.  The issue is that there are so many options that you have some people just taking everything and that's not a good approach and then other people maybe just taking a very generic multivitamin thinking that's enough, but that barely scratches the surface," said Dr. Michael Smith, author of The Supplement Pyramid.

Dr. Michael Smith believes people need guidance when selecting the right vitamins and supplements for their bodies.  That's why he wrote his newest book, which contains 16 quizzes people can take to better understand their unique needs.

"Once we have that score we can line it up with specific supplements based on the research that could help you the best," said Dr. Smith.

In 2014, some of the ones supplements that may help you, may surprise you.  Dr. Smith says spices will be very popular this year.

"They are great to cook with, but in a capsule form boy they can help with your inflammation, brain, heart even strengthening your immune system.  so look for spices in 2014," said Dr. Smith.
