The definition of a supplement is “something that completes or enhances something else when added to it.” According to the National Institute of Health, dietary supplements include vitamins, minerals, herbals and botanicals, amino acids, enzymes, and many other products. Even the best supplements can’t take the place of eating a variety of nutrient-dense foods. While supplements like vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and protein powders can help to support specific functions, the real goal of using supplements should be to enhance an already-balanced diet. The greatest concern been that conventionally grown foods today don’t contain enough nutrients due to issues like poor soil quality and foods laden with heavy metals, preservatives, colourants, artificial flavourants and sweeteners.
