Dietary supplements consist a wide variety which includes vitamins, minerals, herbs, botanicals, enzymes, amino acids, or other dietary ingredients. Dietary supplements can be consumed by mouth in pill, capsule, tablet, or liquid form to supplement your diet.
With the abundance of pills that claim to be super effective and offer nearly immediate results, consumers should be very cautious. Dietary supplements are made to compliment one’s diet, to fill in the lost daily nutrients that one cannot be obtained through the food consumed daily.
Therefore, if a pill claims itself to be a wonder pill, please do not fall for it. Our body has its very own recovery mechanism that functions to regulate our whole body system and so it will take some time to see or feel the benefits of consuming dietary supplements. Also keep in mind to consult your general practitioner on whether you should consume dietary supplements because if the incorrect type of dietary supplements is consumed, it might cause more harm than good. Worst case scenario, it might also deteriorate your present health condition.
A healthy diet, timely exercise and sufficient fluids consumed daily will be more efficient in helping you achieve a better health. Look at Sport & Outdoors products that will compliment your diet.
Choosing safe and effective dietary supplements has become a game of chance. While there are many dietary nutritional supplements offered on health-food store shelves and easily available online, the dizzying array of choices has become confusing for many consumers. And reading Facebook posts, news and articles related to unregulated dietary supplements products that cause much more harm than good, has greatly affect our judgement on these products.
Sadly, in the South East Asian region there is no strong regulatory body that identify high-quality dietary supplements (with exception to Singapore that has a stricter regulatory). With that being mentioned, it is more important as consumers to do some research about the brand prior to buying any of its dietary supplements.
Among the most popular brands include Blackmores from Australia that offers a variety of products to compliment a lacking diet; Biogreen an organic and natural health products retailer that offers all kinds of natural and organic agriculture products.
