When to Add Supplements to Your Diet

You may want to consider adding a supplement to your diet when your body is lacking the nutrients it needs to maintain a homeostatic balance. By adding these supplements to your diet, your body can get closer to optimal health. 

For example, individuals suffering from mental health conditions may benefit from adding CoQ10 or Vitamin B12 to their diet. People interested in strengthening their immune system may turn to elderberry supplements. The type of supplement you add will largely depend on your health and wellness goals. 

The great thing about supplements is that you can often get them in many different forms. Although most come in capsules that you swallow, you could also consume the supplements through gummies, drinks, tablets, and bars. 

Before adding any supplements to your diet, it is important to speak with your physician and pharmacist so you don’t consume more of a certain nutrient, hormone, or vitamin than your body can handle.
