Do Dietary supplements actually help?
The Dietary Supplement industry is thriving rather booming with the adage that these supplements complement to a healthy living. They are available in all forms and shapes, ranging from powders, pills, capsules, soft-gels, nutrition bars to fluids.
These supplements encompass
- Amino Acids (the primary building blocks of protein)
- Natural Sources (fish oil)
- Glandulars (nutritional supplements made from various organs and tissues of mammals)
They are widely available in supermarkets, health food stores, grocery markets, pharmacies and online too.
Do Supplements add value?
There is an ongoing war on whether supplements are necessary or not? Supplements can be essential. We all need these nutrient building blocks and may not be getting them from our daily diet.
At times we may eat a healthy diet, however still be nutrition deficient as our body is incapable of absorbing the nutrients optimally. Studies have shown that most of the time absorption is the reason for the deficiency. This is where Homeopathy and Ayurveda may prove beneficial.
There are various types of dietary/nutritional supplements. Vitamin and mineral supplements contain micronutrients that are supposed to help a healthy body function efficiently. Herbal (or botanical) supplements are nutritional supplements that have health benefits. These herbal supplements generally support a localized area of the body such as the hair, eyes, heart, bones, liver or skin.
The FDA does not regulate Dietary supplements as stringently as it regulates drugs. Being highly unregulated, these supplements can have detrimental effects or may also interact with the other medications when used concomitantly. Therefore, it is highly advisable to consult a Health care practitioner before consuming any supplement especially if you are:
- Nursing a baby,
- Suffer a chronic medical condition like diabetes, hypertension, or heart disease.
How does one judiciously use supplements?
Although the efficacies of some dietary supplements are documented, the claims of others have yet to be established. Thus, it’s vital to make smart choices. Moreover, it is important to discern whether the supplement is chemically synthesized or obtained from natural sources.
LIFE isn’t just molecules and laboratory synthesized vitamins won’t have the photon and electron spins of those derived from natural food. Biogetica products are all derived from natural food sources and are scientifically formulated to ensure optimum potency, safety and efficacy.
For the supplements to be absorbed and assimilated, it is necessary to adjust and optimize the terrain of the body. Biogetica uses herbs and advanced resonance homeopathy to this effect. Herbs balance the 5 elements in the body and hence balance its energies and terrain. Homeopathics give the body specific information, reminding it of what is to be done.
We, at Biogetica strive to improve lives, through holistic healing, natural formulations and bio-energetic therapies. All our products go through a stringent quality check and are formulated from the highest quality ingredients to ensure we meet all of our standards.
