What are Food Supplements?
Food supplements are an addition to the food we eat. They provide our body with much needed essential ingredients, such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids and medicinal plants. Our body needs a very small portion of vitamins, usually just a few milligrams or even mic.
Despite their insignificant caloric value and the fact that they form a relatively small portion of our body, they are of utmost importance. Minerals, such as magnesium and calcium, are essential for body tissues (bones, for example) and we need them for metabolism and energy production. Shortage of minerals may be slight and consistent or severe and acute. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, the main component in every living creature’s body. Other body tissues, such as muscles, blood vessels and all inside organs, are made of constantly-rebuilt protein structures. In fact, our body undergoes non-stop rebuilding processes. Medicinal plants are believed to have medical capacity. The Rambam, for instance, documented hundreds of plants for medical use as early as in the 12th century. Since modern medicine emerged, medicinal plants have been gradually replaced by new medications on the basis of synthesized chemical compounds. However, even today the active solutions of many important medications are originated in plants. Aspirin, one of the most common blood-diluting medicines, is based on chemical compounds that used to be made of willow tree’s peel. Penicillin was originally made of a fungi named Penicillum and still saves lives nowadays. In the modern era, shortage-levels are caused by the lacking Western menu, which is based mostly on processed food and including too little fresh food, vegetables and fruits. Small shortage does not bring to severe diseases as it used to, yet it still might harshly damage our health. Many studies have demonstrated the vital influence of food supplements on our health, as well as their key role in the prevention of several chronic diseases. Who could use food supplements? Anyone with nutritional shortages and anyone who wishes to strengthen their body as a form of preventive medicine! For any age, gender and location – food supplements strengthen your body and improve your physical condition.
