Health And Wellness From Natural Nutritional Supplements

Dec 27, 2007
Concerned over the health and wellness of children at home, many parents have searched for alternative methods to treating illnesses. The parents have found that natural nutritional supplements work better in fighting illnesses than medicinal methods they have used in the past. Using nutritional supplements on a regular basis had a great affect on how the body's immune system fights infection.

Natural nutritional supplements such as vitamin C and honey were found to be very effective in fighting colds and treating coughs due to colds. People that used nutritional supplements and followed a healthy diet plan were found to have fewer respiratory infections. By following a daily regimen of increased doses of vitamin C, other people noticed a big difference in the texture of the epidermal layer of skin on the face and the severity of blemishes caused by adolescent acne dramatically decreased when nutritional supplements vitamins C and E are consumed every day.

Families with a history of cardiovascular problems have used nutritional supplements such as fish oil to remove harmful forms of fatty acids from the blood. Cancer patients who have undergone chemotherapy treatments have also used fish oil to achieve health and wellness. The nutritional supplements contained in fish oil were found to be very effective in boosting the regeneration of cells in the immune system, which had been destroyed by the chemotherapy treatments.

The amount of nutritional supplements ingested into the body will differ by sex. Men will require a higher dosage than women based on the simple fact that men have a higher body weight. While some nutritional supplements are beneficial to both sexes, the intended effect or result for taking the supplement might be different for each sex and for the correct result to be obtained, the dosage amounts will need to be regulated carefully.

Women need calcium supplements to fight osteoporosis because calcium helps to build a strong and solid bone structure. Men who have been diagnosed with prostrate cancer would benefit more from taking a vitamin D supplement in place of calcium supplements because studies have found that calcium supplements promote prostate cancer. Other vitamin and mineral supplements such as vitamin E, lycopene, zinc, selenium, and beta-carotene can be used to prevent prostate cancer.

Families that have a history of arthritis will find nutritional supplements such as glucosamine to be very helpful. This nutritional supplement is found in the shells of most shellfish but has been manufactured to be taken in pill form. Glucosamine has been found to help in healing sprains, wounds and knee pain because it helps to improve the cartilage that surrounds many joints in the body. A family with children will find that this nutritional supplement will cut down visits to the doctor.

While many families continue to use natural nutritional supplements on a daily basis, the Food and Drug Administration has not endorsed the use of any nutritional supplements to treat any medical disorder. Home remedies and natural cures have been used for centuries, and the use of these healing methods is left up to each individual. A qualified physician should monitor all home medical treatments that rely on nutritional supplementation.
