Supplements As Insurance Against Diet Gaps

Supplements As Insurance Against Diet Gaps

According to media reports, consumers spent billions of dollars on supplements annually with multivitamins, calcium and Vitamin C pills being the most popular ones. Skincare supplements are also becoming more popular as more people embrace the concept of nurturing beauty from within. If you’re not into pill-popping yet, should you jump on and start taking them too?

Many Not Eating Properly

Scientists at the Usana Health Sciences facility in Salt Lake City believe that people are not getting enough nutrients from food sources and modern-day diets do not provide adequate support for the body’s natural protective and renewal processes. Dr John Como, an executive director at Usana, says that “this especially rings true if we continue to peg our levels to the RDA standards.” RDA is the recommended dietary allowance to meet the nutrient requirements of healthy people. For example, studies show that almost 90% of people get less vitamin E than the RDA and 77% of men are deficient in magnesium and vitamins D and B12.

Effective And Economical Health Boosters

Because of this, nutritionists say that supplements are a low-cost way to help maintain a person’s health and well-being. They argue that there is some scientific evidence to show that health supplements can help manage chronic diseases, food allergies and intolerances. Dr Frank Lipman, a pioneer and renowned expert in Integrative and Functional Medicine, believes that supplements “can help fill in nutritional gaps and protect your body against occasional diet slip-up.” US celebrity doctor Andrew Weil says that while they are not substitutes for whole foods, “the right doses and formulations of dietary supplements can optimize health and reduce the risk of disease.” In a nutshell, they are useful as insurance to fill in the gaps in our diet.

Eat Your Way To Beautiful Skin

Our individual nutritional requirements are very different due to our lifestyle and genetic differences, therefore there is no one size fit all 'good' diet plan that works for everyone. Even so, our diet might not provide the adequate amount of certain nutrients to promote a positive change in our skin health. For example, through our diet, we consume on average 0.3mg of ceramides daily. To achieve clinically proven skin moisturization activities from ceramides at 30mg a day, we will have to eat ten times the volume of food, which is not a practical solution. The current lay of the land seems to be that supplements can be useful in filling in nutritional gaps, for example, when a person is on a restrictive diet due to religion, age, illness, or recovering from surgery. Nevertheless, not all supplements are created equal. Thus it is important to do your own checking of their ingredients and composition.
