Dietary supplements

Dietary supplements are concentrated sources of nutrients or other substances with a nutritional or physiological effect that are offered in dosed forms, such as tablets, capsules, powders, or liquids, to supplement the regular diet. Their primary goal is to optimize daily nutrient intake and address specific nutritional needs or deficiencies that may not be met by everyday diet alone.

Dietary supplements contain a variety of bioactive components, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, enzymes, probiotics, phytonutrients, and antioxidants. They are designed for various target groups and needs to support overall health, strengthen the immune system, promote metabolism, improve mental clarity, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

The development and production of dietary supplements require a deep understanding of the biochemical mechanisms of action of the ingredients and the optimal dosages to ensure effective absorption and utilization in the body. Quality assurance and regulatory compliance are central to guaranteeing the safety, purity, and efficacy of these products.
