Nutrition is regarded as the fundamental building block of human health. Almost all of human health and disease can find its origin in a nutrition-related component involved in the biology and physiology of human life.
Certain nutrients are more closely associated with health related problems and benefits than others. Nutritional concentrates in the form of professionally formulated food supplements have a legitimate role in the ongoing management of optimal health. Better nutrition means stronger immune systems, less illness and better health, something all humans strive for.Read more
Food Supplements contain micronutrients – so called because they are needed only in miniscule amounts. These substances are the “magic wands” that enable the body to produce enzymes, hormones and other substances essential for proper growth and development. As tiny as the amounts are, however, the consequences of their absence are pervasive and may be severe.
Good evidence exists that early nutrition affects key risk factors for chronic degenerative diseases of middle and later life, such as osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease. The influence of nutrition on health status and morbidity supports primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention of disease and intervention strategies at each point in the process. The objective of such a prevention-oriented model is to enable people to live well for longer, while minimising chronic disability. Starting down the right path with appropriate nutrition and staying on it by eating well are important components of healthy aging.
