Many of us are reluctant to take dietary supplements. So, let us first understand the difference between medicines and dietary supplements.
Balanced diet is a must for everyone, since all the nutrients are important to carry out bodily functions and keep you away from disorders/diseases. Due to calorie restrictions most of us can’t meet all the nutrient requirement through our diet and hence, dietary supplements become important. Supplements can help you meet the requirement of the specific nutrient or combination of nutrients you’re deficient in. Always, consult your physician or qualified dietitian before taking any supplements. There are certain important things to be considered before prescribing any supplements, dosage is determined and also there are many fake supplements available in the market. And hence, consulting your physician or qualified dietitian becomes very important.
Feel free to ask us questions and we will be glad to answer them.
