Supplements

Supplements are taken to increase daily consumption of particular nutrients and improve  overall health and well-being.

For example, if you’ve ever taken a multivitamin, probiotics, fish oil, or melatonin, you’ve used dietary supplements.

What Do Supplements Do?
Dietary supplements are primarily used as a way to add nutrients to your diet. Some people take supplements to make sure they get enough of a particular important nutrient each day.

Types of Supplements:
There are many different kinds of dietary supplements. Common types of supplements include:

  1. Multivitamins:

These supplements contain a mix of several vitamins and minerals in the recommended amounts. Often, they are once-daily pills for general health. Some multivitamins may be marketed as having a specific benefit, such as increased immunity or energy, and can include additional ingredients.

  1. Individual vitamins:

Supplement forms of one vitamin, such as vitamin C and vitamin D, may be used to target a specific deficiency.

  1. Minerals:

Similarly, supplement forms of a particular mineral, such as potassium and calcium, can be used to manage a deficiency.

  1. Probiotics:

Also known as live microbials, probiotic supplements are meant to support the growth of beneficial bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract.

6.Amino acids:

These supplements can contain any of the nine essential amino acids or other non-essential amino acids. As the building blocks of protein, amino acids may offer several benefits. For instance, supplements to support athletic performance and recovery may contain amino acids.

Benefits of Supplements:

Vitamins and minerals are involved in many of your body’s most essential functions, meaning supplements have a wide variety of potential health benefits.
