What are dietary supplements? Benefits and why to take them

The old adage, “food is fuel” is actually pretty accurate. The food we consume contains nutrients that give our bodies the “fuel” it needs to drive all kinds of bodily functions. This includes vitamins and minerals.

Linda Bailey, a family nurse practitioner at Evernorth Care Group says that vitamins and minerals “are widely noted to be the ‘building blocks’ of a healthy life.”

Elise Heeney, a clinical dietitian at Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center says, “The best way to obtain all the vitamins and minerals our bodies need is by eating a diet that includes a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds, lean proteins, and low-fat dairy products. Aim for a well-balanced plate at each meal.”
