What Are Wellness Supplements

Jun 27

Whether you're after washboard abs, Popeye's forearms or calves the size of dinner plates, MitWellness supplements can help you get there faster by boosting your hard work in the gym. However, workouts are only part of the picture — helping your body function at its best 24 hours a day is what turns those gains into results.

Wellness Supplements, also known as dietary supplements, are vitamins, minerals, botanicals, amino acids, or fatty acids that can be taken in the form of tablets, capsules, gels, powders, bars and gummies. They are ingested to add nutrients that may not be available or not sufficiently consumed in the diet, or to address certain health conditions or reduce the risk of disease.

The dietary supplement industry is an enormous and diverse market, with many competing products offering a wide variety of health benefits. For example, vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps fight free radicals, and calcium supports bone health. Folic acid decreases the risk of birth defects, and a combination of vitamins C and E, lutein and zeaxanthin (known as an AREDS formula) can slow further vision loss in people with age-related macular degeneration.

Athletes use sports nutrition supplements to optimize their performance before, during and after workouts, and these supplements can help promote recovery and speed up muscle growth. Many supplements also have a mood-boosting effect and can reduce inflammation.

Some of the most popular dietary supplements are multivitamins, calcium, magnesium, iron, and fish oils. Vitamin D and folic acid are important for bones and immune systems, respectively. For people with certain diseases, such as Crohn's disease or celiac disease, dietary supplements can help overcome nutrient deficiencies that can arise from avoiding foods and beverages.

While the FDA regulates dietary supplements, it does not routinely analyze their contents. Instead, the agency's limited resources are prioritized toward analyzing products that have caused illness or injury. This leaves the door open for fraudulent or unsubstantiated claims, and it's essential to talk with a doctor before taking any supplements.

You can get a lot of information about the ingredients and quality of supplements by visiting the manufacturer's website or researching independent reviews. A trustworthy company will provide detailed descriptions of each ingredient and a list of possible side effects, if any. They will also include a contact number for questions and concerns. If you have any concerns, it's always better to choose a brand that has an established track record and reputation for quality products. Then, you can be confident in knowing that you're getting the best nutritional support for your needs.
