Dietary Supplements and Lifestyle Choices
Do does an intake of dietary supplements balance out poor lifestyle choices including lack of a balanced diet and exercise? Numerous studies have demonstrated that reliance upon food for the recommended daily intake of one’s required nutrients is not enough.
The purpose of dietary supplements is to help provide the additional compensation needed to reach the recommended daily intake of nutrients with the daily consumption of enriched and fortified foods.
There is positive evidence that those individuals who are already taking or starting to take dietary supplements are more likely to engage in healthy related activities such as exercising regularly, maintain a healthy body weight and avoid tobacco products.
It is important to find your balance and dietary supplements can help.
