More than fifty percent of adults in the United States take at least one dietary supplement such as vitamins and minerals, which supports a 30 billion a year supplement industry. Most people take these supplements without a doctors recommendation because they believe it will improve or maintain their health as they age. In this seminar, you will learn what nutrients and vitamins the human body needs to function properly and why. We will also discuss how this changes as we age and how to choose the best quality dietary supplements. The information will be presented in simple terms to make it easy to understand. The seminar is presented by a Ph.D. scientist with a background in chemistry and enzymology.
Bring your lunch and join us for an interactive educational tour of Monte Bello Preserve. First, we will learn about amphibians, reptiles and mushrooms that can be found at this preserve. Next, on our four mile walk, we will travel up the steep, forest covered White Oak Trail in search of birds and mushrooms to reach an open grassland for views of Black Mountain. We head back downhill along the Stevens Creek Nature trail following Stevens Creek to find amphibians that make their home by the creek. This special program is hosted in partnership with Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District.
