What is the role of supplements?

Various supplements have different roles:


The primary role of a multivitamin is to fill nutritional gaps and ensure that you are getting the daily amount of nutrients needed.

For instance, you might need more vitamins A, C, D, E, and K. You may also need more magnesium, calcium, dietary fiber, choline, and potassium.


Probiotics are made of good live bacteria and yeasts that naturally live in the body. They can help with lactose intolerance and inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), skin conditions like eczema, and decreasing inflammation from rheumatoid arthritis (RA).

These supplements can also help to prevent and treat yeast infections, urinary tract infections (UTIs), stomach and respiratory infections, allergies, and asthma.

Healthy Glucose Metabolism

Specific vitamins and minerals, such as alpha-lipoic acid (ALA), zinc, folate, magnesium, and vitamin D, can help lower glucose levels.

Magnesium deficiency is seen with decreased absorption, as in patients with poor diets high in processed food. Low levels can also occur in patients due to increased elimination (as in people who consume caffeine or alcohol) and in those who use diuretics or birth control pills.
