Importance of Nutrition Supplementation

Certain essential cofactors and coenzymes are necessary for synthesis and absorption of specific nutrients important for protection and energy production. Herbal formulations, green extracts, and potent antioxidants have specific disease preventive and metabolism raising properties. If taken regularly with other antioxidant or B-nutrients health can be drastically improved.

It is the deteriorating consumption of wholesome food which is the major cause of micronutrient deficiencies. Even though physicians and dieticians recommend the consumption of multiple servings of fruits and vegetables daily, our society consumes way below it.

Rujuta Diwekar in her book “Don’t lose your mind, lose your weight” sticks to the basics of vitamin and mineral supplements being no replacement to healthy eating. But she also adds that when a baseline diet is in place, workout is regular and one has a positive outlook towards life, food supplements will help them work at their best and would add great value.

Because of these reasons, health supplements provide essential nutrients that our modern diets are lacking.
