Natural Food Supplements

Natural food supplements include a wide variety of products.

Almost all health food stores carry them, and many drugstores, supermarkets, and mass market/club stores stock them on their shelves as well.

In general, natural food supplements are made of, derived from, or by-products of foods providing health benefits.

In some cases, health benefit claims made by manufacturers are based on a supplement’s use in traditional healing; in other cases, they’re based on modern scientific research.

Today, label claims are regulated by the FDA and FTC to be true, not misleading, and based on science.

Food supplements can be high in certain nutrients, contain active ingredients to help digestive or metabolic processes, or provide a combination of nutrients and active ingredients.

It’s important to point out some unscrupulous manufacturers make false promises.

It’s therefore vital to be an informed consumer.

Many natural food supplements have been known to work for years; these products are medically endorsed only when they’re “discovered” by researchers and deemed acceptable by these groups.

Such recent discoveries include garlic, aloe vera, fiber, and fish oils – substances used for centuries in many parts of the world.

In a recent review, several herbs have not only been used a long time but have also stood up to rigorous scientific testing.

There is strong science behind St. John’s wort to help with depression, garlic to help people with heart disease, ginseng to improve sexual function in males, and echinacea to boost immunity.

What’s On The Shelves

Food supplements come in many shapes and forms – tablets, capsules, powders, liquids, jellies, creams, biscuits, wafers, granules, and more.

Product packaging depends entirely on what’s in the food supplement.

The potency of these products varies.

Because they’re made up of perishable foods, food derivatives, or food byproducts, their potency may be affected by the length of time they sit on a shelf or by the temperature they’re kept at.

If you don’t understand how a product should be used, ask questions or read the available literature on the particular supplement.

All products sold today need to have a “sell by” date on the label.

If there isn’t one, contact the manufacturer and tell them the code on your box.

If you’ve never used a natural food supplement, you may be uncomfortable buying and using one for the first time.

This is normal.

Keep in mind once you become familiar with its use and benefits, you won’t give the idea of using it a second thought.
