Why Do I Need Supplements When I Am Leading A Healthy Life?

For us Indians taking supplements can be daunting. Why someone would voluntarily consume pills every day is beyond us. If you are taking a few pills daily, you must be ill right? Wrong!

Diet supplements have become common abroad but in India not so much. Surveys on dietary supplements found that almost 76% Americans consume supplements with their diet whereas in India the percentage is as low as 37%. Through this blog our aim is to increase awareness and possibly convince you to contact your healthcare provider for guidance.

Say what you will but the diet today is not what it used to be. The reasons as to why we should consume supplements are varied, ranging from environmental pollution, imbalanced diet, all the way to stress.
1. Stress and pollution result in the reduction of your body’s ability to fight common and serious infections which puts your body at a risk of infection.
2. Nowadays, even the water and food we consume are not purely beneficial. The modern water production methods and excessive filtering rids the water of essential minerals.
3. Some modern farming techniques coupled with the use of fertilizers strip away the soil and thereby plants of essential nutrients. So unfortunately, we are missing out on a lot of key resources as we choose to over-filter, overthink and maximize profits.
4. Most of the urban population does not get the minimum required amount of sunlight, that provides Vitamin D, to the body due to the negligible exposure to the sun. This problem has increased manifold since the coronavirus outbreak. Hence, the need for a vitamin D supplement arises.
5. As we age the absorption level of nutrients declines as the body is not able to optimally break down the food and absorb all the nutrients.

Also, people with food allergies, people who smoke, drink in excess, some vegans, the elderly, women with heavy periods, pregnant/breast feeding women and crash dieters should especially be careful as their bodies are more susceptible to such deficiencies. Supplements can also prove to be useful for people who play sports and work out regularly because their body uses up a lot of the stored nutrients and energy.

All this calls for the use of supplements. Taking supplements can reinstate your body’s health and can keep it safer from infections. And most importantly, prevention is always better than cure so making sure that your body is strong and not susceptible to disease is the least you can do!
