Have you ever visited your local pharmacy, grocery or health food store to learn about supplements, only to walk in and feel completely overwhelmed with the massive selection? Then those four fateful words rush into your head: “Where do I start?”
Well, that’s what we are here for! Let’s start by talking about what supplements are and what they can do for you. Then we’ll talk about how Nerium is meeting the supplement challenge with our new line of wellness products, Youth Factor™ Complete Vitality Complex tablet and Youth Factor Superfood & Antioxidant drink powder.
What Exactly is a Supplement?
Per the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a supplement is a product taken by mouth that’s intended to supplement your diet and contains one of the “dietary ingredients” — including vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, and other essential nutrients even enzymes. You may be wondering why you would need to supplement your diet in the first place? Well, most people take supplements because they believe it will improve or maintain their health. In fact; nearly half of U.S. adults use dietary supplements. This has resulted in a reportedly $30-billion-a-year business. In a study published in February 2017, researchers found that 45 percent of people taking a supplement really believe it will boost their health while 33 percent of people thought supplements would maintain their health. Food is the best way to get all the nutrients you need; however, it’s possible you could still be missing out on important nutrients for reasons including your age, medical conditions, or health problems.
Why Take a Supplement?
Remember, no matter what you are missing in your diet, a supplement is not designed to treat, diagnose, or cure any ailment. That’s a directive from the FDA; however, it’s okay if a product mentions that it could “help with,” “reduce the risk,” or “lessen the effects” of something. Nutritionist and writer Shelia Amir reiterates that supplements aren’t supposed to be a quick fix but they can help you meet your nutritional needs.
As you consider what supplement is right for you, take these factors into account:
- Is it necessary to take a supplement in the first place
- Your age (our bodies can become less efficient as we age) and your gender
- Types of food you regularly eat
- Medical conditions (e.g., allergies, diabetes, heart issues, pregnancy)
- Health problems (e.g., overweight/obese, high blood pressure)
What’s a Supplement’s Role in Reducing Signs of Aging
Personal trainer Lisa Lynn also cautions people to watch for bargain-priced supplements. She writes, “Bargain brands may not even have enough of the active ingredient, or the right form of the active ingredient, to do what you need them to do.”
So, what’s Nerium’s take on all this? When we launched, we set out to create a simple regimen that helps reduce the signs of aging for the face, body, and mind. To further accomplish this, we decided to go deeper – to the cellular level. That’s where our new line of wellness products starts. Both Youth Factor Complete Vitality Complex tablet and Youth Factor Superfood & Antioxidant Boost drink powder work together to improve nutrient absorption and help maintain the body’s optimal state of well-being.
Nerium’s exclusive Youth Factor™ Complete Vitality Complex tablet and Youth Factor Superfood & Antioxidant drink powder help enhance the absorption of antioxidants, so your body receives the full benefits of the ingredients in these powerhouse products. Both of these products also contain two exclusive patent-pending ingredients: Youth Factor enzyme blend and Nerium’s proprietary Complex NAA™ blend found in both Youth Factor Complete Vitality Complex tablet and Youth Factor Superfood & Antioxidant Boost drink powder. Formulated with a unique combination of Goji Berry, Korean Mint, and Fig, it helps skin look brighter, supports moisturizing, and fights the appearance of wrinkles.
