Disease Prevention and Dietary Supplement: What Benefits Would I Get from taking Food Supplements?

Several weeks ago, I heard two radio program hosts discuss food supplements in their program. They insisted that people should be careful about taking food supplements because these products do not have “approved therapeutic claims”.

I understand their word of caution. I cannot discount the fact that there are unscrupulous people who make unclean profit by selling adulterated food supplements. However, while we need to avoid cheats, we should not refuse food supplements altogether because the health benefits of these supplements are true and backed by thorough research and study.

Sadly, it seems that many people are doubtful over the promised effects of food or diet supplements because they have not fully appreciated the principle behind them.

We always hear the phrase “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” and I can safely conclude that we all believe that statement. Let’s look at an apple: it is a powerful antioxidant. 100 grams of apple is equivalent to about 1, 500 mg of Vitamin C. It is rich in fiber and other minerals that strengthen the blood. Daily consumption lowers cholesterol and improves the skin. Indeed, an apple can help ward off many diseases. The question: Is Apple a medicine? NO, but adding an apple to our daily meals can help strengthen the body against diseases. Along that principle, apple is a good form of dietary supplement.

All the energy that the body needs to function normally comes from the food that we eat and our bodies need a lot of other nutrients aside from what an apple can give. However, we cannot eat all the nutritious foods at the same time in one meal or even within the three meals we normally have in a day. We cannot stuff our stomachs too much too!

Since, we cannot eat all the beneficial foods that we need (in fact, we even eat unhealthy food most of the time that introduces toxins inside the body), it would be wise to take dietary supplements to provide the necessary vitamins and minerals that our bodies need to sustain good cellular activity and fight toxic substances in the body.

Food supplements provide the body with the necessary nutrients that it needs to build a strong immune system and prevent a lot of diseases from setting. Everyone needs it and that includes YOU. Prevent disease now and avoid spending a fortune for cure.
