Nutritional Supplements & Products
TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR WELLBEING
Is something missing from your diet? Do you have an existing health condition that requires specific attention? Nutritional supplements and products can help fill that void.
Nutritional supplements typically contain macronutrients such as amino acids in protein, fibre in carbohydrates, fatty acids in healthy oils as well as the micronutrients such as vitamins, minerals and other phytonutrients, in addition to digestive enzymes and pre and probiotics and occasional botanical and herbal ingredients. Offering a range of benefits including maintaining general health, supporting mental and physical performance, and providing immune system protection, they can be used to treat a deficiency, support disease treatment or reduce symptoms or the risk of a medical condition.
Unless a deficiency is identified, a supplement is usually not necessary if you eat well, absorb nutrients properly and exercise regularly, which is why it’s important to consult a certified nutritionist before incorporating nutritional supplements into your diet.
