A breakdown of what supplements do and what that means for your health.
What Are Supplements?
There’s been quite a bit of discourse over the year regarding the effectiveness and usefulness of supplements: are they really necessary? Do they make that much of a difference? Well, yes and no.
The most important thing to note is that supplements cannot and should be used as a replacement for a healthy, balanced diet and active lifestyle. The best way to make sure your body gets most of the nutrients it needs is to consume them via a variety of whole, nutrient-rich foods. With that said, supplements can be useful and effective at doing just what their name suggests: supplementing a healthy, balanced diet, covering the small gaps that your diet does not, treating an identified deficiency, or treating a specific condition. This is especially true for individuals who have certain health conditions.
Common Reasons for Taking Supplements
With all of that said, always consult with your doctor before starting a new supplement. There are countless supplement manufacturers and brands out there, and ensuring that you’re taking the best possible supplements starts with choosing the supplements and brands that your doctor recommends.
