Supplements Q & A

What are supplements?

Dietary supplements can be beneficial for your health. Your body needs to utilize and obtain vitamins and nutrients from the foods you consume for optimal functioning. Many people aren’t getting enough of these nutrients and are left with deficiencies, prompting medical complications.

In more severe cases, extreme vitamin deficiencies can lead to death. One example of this is scurvy – a disease caused by a lack of vitamin C that can cause an array of symptoms, such as weakness, fatigue, and sore limbs.

There is a range of dietary supplements that can include such ingredients as vitamins, amino acids, minerals, herbs, and enzymes. Dietary supplements are available in different forms, including liquids, tablets, soft gels, and powders.

Dr. Yerneni might recommend supplements to:

  • Boost your energy
  • Repair a deficiency
  • Improve your health overall
  • Help treat a medical condition like chronic fatigue

It’s important you take time to speak with a nutrition and supplement specialist like Dr. Yerneni to ensure you’re getting quality vitamins that are right for you and your individual needs.

Dr. Yerneni emphasizes that the primary goal is to achieve a healthy balance between the foods and nutrients your body needs.

What are the benefits of supplements?

There are many benefits of dietary supplements. Some supplements can reduce your disease risks, and others can help you rest assured that you’re getting an adequate amount of the vital substances your body needs to function.

Supplements are not a replacement for a complete meal, but rather, should be taken in addition as a complement to your healthy diet and lifestyle.
