"I will respect the hard-won scientific gains of those physicians in whose steps I walk, and gladly share such knowledge as is mine with those who are to follow." - Hippocratic Oath
The rising health awareness among consumers of all age groups promotes consumption of dietary and nutritional supplements across the globe. Today’s dietary supplements include vitamins, minerals, herbals and botanicals, amino acids, enzymes, and many other products that come in a variety of forms: traditional tablets, capsules, and powders, as well as drinks and energy bars.
Some ingredients found in dietary supplements are added to a growing number of foods, including breakfast cereals and beverages. As a result, you may be getting more of these ingredients than you think, and more might not be better.
Don’t decide to take dietary supplements to treat a health condition that you have diagnosed yourself, without consulting a health care provider. Don’t take supplements in place of, or in combination with, prescribed medications without your health care provider’s approval.
