Marni: Oh, my goodness. My pill case… I don’t know where it is…
Jessica: What? Why do you take so many pills?
Marni: It’s not pills, per se. It’s just vitamins. I take a lot of supplements.
Jessica: To get extra minerals in your diet?
Marni: I like to take fish oil because I believe it’s going to keep me young. And I take probiotics because I think it’s good for your digestion. And I take a lot of vitamin D, because we don’t get a lot of sun here.
Marni: And I take lots of calcium and magnesium and all that stuff.
Jessica: My goodness. I just take a multivitamin. I sometimes worry that I’m going to exceed my RDA, my recommended daily allowance.
Marni: Oh, really? I just take as much as I want. I don’t ever worry about that.
Jessica: I focus on my diet and hope that what I’m eating will then absorb into my body the way minerals do.
Marni: I just feel like if I don’t take all these supplements, I just am missing something. I just feel like covering all of my bases that way.
Jessica: Maybe I should look into this a little bit more.
Marni: Maybe you should. Maybe I should take less. Maybe we’ll learn from each other.
