Prevent diseases with healthy nutrition
“The doctor of the future will no longer treat the human frame with drugs, but rather will cure and prevent disease with nutrition.”
American Medical Association made a land marked recommendation that all gender people should take Dietary/ vitamin supplements over and above eating a healthy balanced diet, to remain in peak health condition.
Dietary supplements are the products that can supplement diet to help prevent nutrition-related disorders and promote wellness over treatment of illness.
Dietary supplements have different names in different countries, like in Canada they are known as natural health products, whereas in USA they are dietary supplements, In Japan they are Food supplements for special health use, in Australia they are known as complementary medicines, in Europe they are food supplements, In India they are nutraceuticals.
The balanced diet should cater the nutrient need of the human body. But due to many reasons like fast paced lifestyle, lack of time, based on food habits and many more, most of the people are under nutritious and in some other cases where people are diseased, for their faster recovery also people need dietary supplements.
Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients that are needed by our body in small amounts. Those who don’t take enough vitamins and minerals daily, might land up suffering vitamin deficiencies and pose a higher risk of developing illnesses.
