What are dietary supplements?

Dietary supplements contain vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs, or other botanicals that complement a healthy diet. The most common medical reasons to choose nutritional supplements include pregnancy, improved weight management, reduced risks of deficiencies, and aging.

The USDA reports that most American adults don’t get enough:

  • Calcium
  • Potassium
  • Fiber
  • Magnesium
  • Vitamins A, C, D, and E

Taking supplements is one of the best ways to maintain superior health. Because not all nutritional supplements are regulated, the Heavenly Cosmetic Medical Spa team offers the following top-quality supplements to ensure your safety:

  • Standard Process®
  • MediHerb®
  • Systemic Formulas™
  • Marco Pharma™
  • HVS Labs®

You might take more than one type of dietary supplement to achieve exceptional health and wellness.

Which dietary supplements are best for me?

The Heavenly Cosmetic Medical Spa team lets you know which supplements are best for you after discussing your medical history, symptoms, lifestyle, usual dietary habits, and your health goals. They weigh you, check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and order blood tests to check for nutritional deficiencies and disease risk factors. 

What are the different types of dietary supplements?

The common dietary supplements available at Heavenly Cosmetic Medical Spa include:

Vitamin supplements

Your body needs vitamins to grow and develop normally. It makes vitamins D and K, but it doesn’t always produce enough.

The vitamins your body needs are vitamins A, C, D, E, and K. The family of B vitamins is also essential.

Many dietary supplements contain combinations of vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients.

Mineral supplements

Your body uses minerals to keep your bones, muscles, heart, and brain working correctly. Minerals also help your body produce enzymes and hormones.

There are two kinds of minerals your body needs: macrominerals and trace minerals. The macrominerals are:

  • Calcium
  • Phosphorus
  • Magnesium
  • Sodium
  • Potassium
  • Chloride 
  • Sulfur 

Trace minerals your body requires include:

  • Iron
  • Manganese
  • Copper
  • Iodine
  • Zinc
  • Cobalt
  • Fluoride
  • Selenium

It’s important to consume the right amount of vitamins and minerals daily to ensure your body functions properly.

Herbal supplements

Herbal supplements come from plants and help maintain and improve your health. They include:

  • Black cohosh
  • Echinacea
  • Garlic
  • Ginkgo
  • Saw palmetto
  • St. John’s wort

Before you take a new supplement, discuss it with your Heavenly Cosmetic Medical Spa provider.

Weight loss supplements

Weight loss supplements help speed up your metabolism, boost satiety (feeling full), lessen your risk of nutritional deficiencies when restricting calories, and increase your chance of long-term healthy weight management.
