When using dietary supplements, assess your needs, evaluate the merits of taking supplements, and understand how to choose and use them.
Can you skip your daily servings of fruits and vegetables and take a vitamin and mineral supplement instead? Unfortunately, no.
Vitamins and minerals are substances your body needs in small but steady amounts for normal growth, function and health. Together, vitamins and minerals are called micronutrients. Your body can’t make most micronutrients, so you must get them from the foods you eat or, in some cases, from dietary supplements.
Dietary supplements can compliment your regular diet if you have trouble getting enough nutrients. But they aren’t meant to be food substitutes. Dietary supplements can’t replicate all of the nutrients and benefits of whole foods, such as fruits and vegetables.
Supplementation has shown to enhance recovery, maximise performance and facilitate the achievement of your goals.
Active individuals should ensure they ingest adequate protein to facilitate recovery and prevent the breakdown of muscle tissue.
