Supplements, as their name suggests, are meant to be used in addition to a healthy diet.

It is best to get your nutrients from whole foods, and if you have a balanced and varied diet you should be able to meet all of your daily needs. However there are a few supplements which have been very well researched, and can be useful for some people and effectively reverse any deficiencies. For example, many people are deficient in vitamin D. Fish oil supplements contain vitamin D whilst also providing valuable omega-3 fats. 

Supplements such as calcium, zinc and magnesium also have a very important role in maintaining healthy bones and a healthy immune system. Coconut Oil may help maintain brain health. People already making an effort to improve their diet may wish to take things to the next level with some well considered supplementation.  Our wide range of articles in this area will keep you up to date with the latest science and ideas and help you make informed choices.

  1. There are so many more suppliers you could have on this page. I have been writing articles for magazines on supplements for awhile now and I see really good things about this website but it should do more in this area. The nutrition pages are very good and a bit sciency for my liking but let’s see more links to some really good suppliers and pages as well.
