What are the best supplements?
The world is full of different supplements that suppose to be health aides for our bodies, some supplements might help you get adequate amounts of essential nutrients. Scientific evidence shows that some supplements are beneficial for overall health and for managing some health conditions, but alot supplements need more study to determine their value.
We know that the FDA does not determine whether dietary supplements are effective before they are marketed, which is a problem in itself, because we basically self testing supplements at time to determined what will or want help us, we must always be alert to the possibility of unexpected side effects, especially when taking a new product… especially when taking them instead of prescribed medicines or taking many supplements in combination. Also be aware of supplements that interact with certain prescription drugs that might cause or cause problems, such astoo much vitamin A can cause headaches and liver damage, reduce bone strength, and cause birth defects or to much iron can causes nausea and vomiting and may damage the liver and other organs.
How do we know if the drug is good for us? Actually, there is know pen-point we, that’s because again unlike drugs, which must be approved by the FDA before they can be marketed, dietary supplements do not require pre-market review or approval by the FDA. Manufacturers must follow certain good manufacturing practices to ensure the identity, purity, strength, and composition of their products, but to ensure this is in fact correct to what they reported, the FDA must find a product to be unsafe or otherwise unfit for human consumption and that is only after the product have been consumed and multiple reporting’s have been brought to the FDA’s attention. The fact there is limited evidence that offer any significant health benefits that supplements have. Now there is some research that found that a formula of vitamin C, vitamin E, carotenoids, zinc, and copper can reduce the progression of age-related macular degeneration, a major cause of vision loss among older adults and people who are lactose intolerant and do not get enough vitamin D and calcium because they don’t eat dairy products also could benefit from supplements.
The best knowledge you can get is to consult with your doctor and pay close attention to the labeling of your supplement package and do your research to see if in fact the information correlates. That actually is the only ways to determine if a supplement is the best for you.
