Nutritional supplements are different from vitamins and minerals which are also used in home remedies and as supplements.
Some nutritional supplements come in pill form and and/or a liquid form and are best taken with food.
Side Effects of Using Nutritional Supplements:
Nutritional supplements are intended to enhance your health.
Unfortunately, some people unknowingly misuse nutritional supplements by taking them in excess or by combining too many where one supplement may not interact well with another supplement, which can lead to serious complications and even the possibility of overdosing.
It is important to keep in mind that certain nutritional supplements can react with medications you are taking as well as other health conditions you may have.
If you are currently taking medications, consult your physician prior to using a supplement or if you are wanting to increase the amount you are currently taking.
Be sure you know what you are taking and the proper, healthy dosage to take.
