Can Supplements Really Help You?

While there is ongoing debate over the optimal use of supplements and their effectiveness, and while supplements cannot take the place of a healthy diet, our pharmacist recommends them for a variety of reasons:

• A good daily multivitamin/multi-mineral supplement can work as insurance against gaps in the diet - for example, to cover those days when you are on the road or busy and simply can’t get the fruits and vegetables you need.

• The more regularly we supply our bodies with antioxidants and phytonutrients, the better our nutritional requirements will be met on a daily basis, and the better our overall health will be protected.

• Supplements can provide natural therapeutic agents in optimal dosages that may be difficult to obtain from diet alone, and that may help prevent and address age-related diseases.

• There are very little side effect concerns with high-quality supplemental vitamins and so the potential gain very often outweighs the very small amount of risk.
