Supplements & Nutrient Deficiencies
A well-balanced diet is important for overall health. However, even with a balanced diet, it can be difficult to get all the nutrients your body needs on a daily basis. Certain populations, such as pregnant women, vegetarians, and older adults may have increased nutrient needs or may have difficulty obtaining certain nutrients from their diet. In these cases, dietary supplements can help to fill any nutrient gaps and prevent deficiencies.
