The Supplements' Role in Maintaining Health


Food is the main source of vitamins and minerals. However, it does not always provide all the necessary nutrients for the body. Due to the fact that there is no food that contains all the necessary nutrients, it is recommended to follow a balanced and diversified diet. During certain periods, such as growing up, convalescence or when stress level is higher, the body's needs increase. In this case,  the supplements of vitamins, minerals and trace elements may be necessary.

The role of the supplements is to ensure a better diet. They are available in several forms: tablets, capsules or liquid. Food supplements are not considered drugs, and although they are not drugs, they are especially meant to improve health problems. They can be used before or during medical treatments, during stressful periods for the body, such as exams or intense exercise, they strengthen the immunity, provide extra vitamins and minerals, prevent atherosclerosis and so on. Also, they are recommended for those who suffer from diseases that affect the body's ability to absorb or use certain nutrients (chronic diarrhoea, food allergies, food intolerances and diseases of the liver, intestines or pancreas).

Supplements play an important role in maintaining good health. For example, folic acid supplements are recommended for pregnant women in order to prevent birth defects. Also, vitamin C and calcium supplements help prevent and treat bone loss density or osteoporosis. With the help of these natural supplements we can prevent different health problems.For various reasons (unhealthy and unbalanced eating habits, air and soil pollution, different diseases), many people do not receive the recommended daily intake of certain essential micronutrients. Dietary supplements are a safe solution when the RDI (recommended daily intake) is not completely ensured through a balanced diet.

According to recent European clinical studies, it was found that adolescents have  predominantly lower than optimal levels of vitamin D. Vitamin D is the precursor of several hormones that influence significantly the calcium balance in the body and which is important for the health of the skeletal system. Generally, older people have a low dietary intake of vitamin D, E and folic acid. In young and middle-aged adults, a deficiency of vitamin B1, pantothenic acid and biotin was noticed relatively frequent. These deficiencies can cause fatigue, weakness and increased susceptibility to infections.

Dietary supplements are the key to maintaining a good general state at any age. Moreover, they are an integrated part of a healthy diet and provide valuable benefits which help maintain good health.
