Healthy Use of Added Vitamins and Minerals

Supplements. There are thousands of them. How do you know which supplements could improve your health, and which really have no proven impact? We get these questions every day at Integrated Health Centre, so we're here to help provide you with some guidance.

Supplements Made Simple

The goal of supplements is to enhance your genetic health potential. Supplements are not replacements for food. This is important to understand. Every balanced and healthy diet involves gaining as much nutrition as possible from proper foods. However, in our fast paced world with daily stressors and imperfect food supply, this is very difficult to achieve. 

WHEN TO USE SUPPLEMENTS

There are many reasons why people use supplements. Here are a few of the most common:

  • Inadequate diet
  • Stressors (physical, chemical and emotional)
  • Genetic predisposition to disease
  • Dietary restrictions and food intolerances or allergies
  • Physical ailments or injuries that impede activity (short-term or long-term)
  • A change in your body's overall health (physically or mentally)

Choose the links below for recommendations of supplements, and explanations for them. If you have any questions, please ask our Nutritionist or staff in our health store.
