More and more in this pandemic, we are realizing the importance of food supplements in our diet. Our diets will never be enough to give us all the nutrients to live long, healthy, and productive lives. And since we have an enemy that we cannot see, we need food supplements all the more in order to boost our immunity.

When Good Nutrition is Not Enough
This Nutrition Month, let’s be reminded of the basics. Ever since we were kids, we were taught about the three main food groups: the Go, Grow, and Glow foods.
The Go foods are those that give us energy like rice, bread, and other sources of sugars and carbohydrates. Meanwhile, the Grow foods are those with proteins and build muscles like meats, eggs, chicken, and fish. And lastly, the Glow foods are fruits and vegetables because of their fiber and liquid content.
Our teachers would encourage us to eat enough portions of different foods everyday. But unless you have a full-time nutritionist and cook in the house like celebrities, who can really say that we are getting the recommended quantity and quality of food every single meal?
And that is why we need food supplements.
What Are Food Supplements
Different nutrients are needed for our body systems to work efficiently together. A deficiency of certain nutrients can lead to ailments, like scurvy, brittle bones, or anemia. Depending on our body composition and situation, we need certain nutrients more than others.
For example, breastfeeding moms would need an extra dose of calcium because their babies can guzzle breastmilk like there’s no tomorrow. That will eat up from her calcium reserves, like her bones and teeth. Meanwhile, young children need more calcium and protein because they need that for growth and development.
As the name suggests, food supplements are not replacements for a balanced diet nor are they medicines. It means that we still need to eat a good balance of meals with food items belonging from the different food groups. Then we augment whatever nutrients are missing in our diets with these supplements.
But in this pandemic, we all need immunity boosting nutrients like Vitamin C and Zinc.
