Dietary Supplement Vitamin


Dietary Supplement Vitamin - why is it important?

Dietary supplement vitamin or vitamins are very important to our health because if we do not intake enough vitamins necessary for our bodies, the dietary supplement vitamin will substitute for the shortage of the amount of vitamins in our system. Still, a good diet based on foods with high concentration of vitamins is always a better solution than supplements. But when a diet is not enough, dietary supplement vitamin could be the answer.

Dietary Supplement Vitamin - nutrient content claims.

Nutrient content claims for dietary supplement vitamin describe the level of some type of vitamin or vitamins in that supplement. For example, according to many heath organizations, a dietary supplement vitamin with at least 12 milligrams per serving of vitamin C could have the following stated on its label" "Excellent source of vitamin C."

Dietary Supplement Vitamin - structure function claims.

According to FDA, structure function claims for dietary supplement vitamin describe the vitamin supplement's effect on people's body structure or function. Structure function claims also refer to the dietary supplement's overall effect on a person's health. One of the examples of structure function claims is "Calcium builds strong bones."

Dietary Supplement Vitamin - examples of vitamins.

There are many vitamins that are available in a dietary supplement vitamin form. Examples include, but are not limited to vitamin A, vitamin D, and vitamin E. Vitamin A plays an important role in vision, bone growth, reproduction, cell division and cell differentiation. The major function of vitamin D is to maintain normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus, helping to form and maintain strong bones. Vitamin E is a very powerful biological antioxidant, which plays a great role in preventing cell damage that may contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
