  1. Supplements

  2. What are supplements? A dietary supplement is intended to supplement the diet by providing nutrients that are missing or are inadequate in a person's diet. Examples include vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, amino acids, herbs and botanicals

  3. Who should use supplements? Vegetarians/Vegans may need additional calcium, vitamin B12 & B6 as well as iron. Pregnant women may need additional calcium, folic acid and iron. Anyone NOT consuming a balanced diet, as supplements shouldn’t take the place of food.

  4. Are supplements safe? Any supplement taken in high enough doses for long enough periods of time can be toxic! There are no federal standards to ensure the safety of most supplements. Excessive doses of these can be harmful: Vitamin A Vitamin D Vitamin B6 Niacin Iron Folic Acid Willow Bark Comfrey Chaparral

  5. WARNING Supplements are often marketed as weight loss & body-building aids as well as energy boosters. The FDA requires that these supplements states that their product “is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.” This should signal a warning to you that their claims are inadequate and may cause adverse reactions (dizziness, headaches, change in blood pressure, seizures, and even death).

  6. For Good Health Turn to Food First Supplements lack certain components that food can provide, so they should not be a substitute for good nutrition! For questions about dietary supplements, call ECU Campus Wellness 252-328-5171
