Health Supplement

Health Supplement ? what is it?

So what is a health supplement? Health supplement is a term that means products made of one or more of the fundamental nutrients, for example vitamins or minerals and which is very beneficial for our health. It provides you with some specific (or a mix of) vitamins, minerals, herbs, botanicals, amino acids, metabolites, etc. Our health depends on the correct intake of these nutrients and if the diet doesn't work, some type of health supplement or supplements would be the answer.

Health Supplement ? vitamins.

Many health supplements provide us with various vitamins. For example, vitamin A, vitamin D, and vitamin E. Vitamin A plays an important role in vision, bone growth, reproduction, and cell division and cell differentiation. Vitamin D maintains normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus, helping to form and maintain strong bones. Vitamin E is a very powerful biological antioxidant, which plays a great role in preventing cell damage that may contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Health Supplement ? minerals.

Health supplements also provide us with various minerals. Minerals play a number of roles, like helping your body to use the energy from foods. For example, iron supplement provides your body with iron, which is an important component of proteins involved in oxygen transport and metabolism. Calcium supplement provides us with calcium, which is critical for transmission of nerve impulses, regulation of the heartbeat, clotting of blood, and building and maintaining healthy bones.

Health supplement ? be careful.

Before you start taking some type of health supplement, make sure that an appropriate diet is not enough to increase the intake of some minerals or vitamins. Consult with a doctor to see that using supplements is right for you. Some supplements may have side effects.
