FOOD SUPPLEMENTS

It is not always easy to obtain all the necessary nutrients from our food alone. Sometimes it helps to resort to food supplements that provide an adequate, qualitatively controlled supply of amino acids, probiotics, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc.

 

We can talk about “nutrition” when diet provides a supply of substances (called nutrients) whose specific biological action actively interacts with the body to keep it healthy.

 

Some nutrients can strengthen the immune defences, others help to preserve cognitive faculties, and others help to control inflammation, etc.
