Dietary supplements are a popular topic. Whether you are in a store, online, or having a conversation, you’ve likely heard claims about their benefits. But what are they, and how do they improve your health?
What are Dietary Supplements?
Dietary supplements (also called nutritional supplements, or supplements for short) are defined by the following criteria:
- Are taken orally.
- Contain a “dietary ingredient” intended to supplement diet. Examples of dietary ingredients include vitamins, minerals, herbs (as single herbs or mixtures), other botanicals, amino acids, and dietary substances such as enzymes and glandulars.
- Come in different forms, such as tablets, capsules, softgels, gelcaps, liquids, and powders.
- Why Do People Take Supplements?
Many people take supplements because they want to supplement their daily diet. Others take supplements seeking immune boosters, more energy, to support bone health, for antioxidant support, to combat inflammation, to support healthy tissues and organs, to aid in sleep, help with memory… The list goes on. In our modern world, our bodies need nutrients to handle all the toxins that we encounter daily; often our bodies are unable to properly absorb nutrients.
It is quite difficult to consume the amount of recommended vitamins and nutrients in our daily diet and many supplements can help fill in the gap. Supplements are often taken to help us achieve our daily intake goals in a path towards wellness.
Although there are many product lines in the industry, they may not contain effective amounts of the nutrient or are not produced properly. We pride ourselves on sourcing the finest raw materials for our formulations and supporting our line with the best practitioner lines available.
