Wellness supplements are additional substances introduced into the human diet to add further nutritional value for enhanced health. Supplements generally include vitamins, minerals, fiber, fatty acids and amino acids.

According to the FDA, supplements are defined as products which are not pharmaceutical drugs, food additives or conventional food and which is intended to supplement a person’s diet.

The intended use of wellness supplements is to ensure that a person gets enough essential nutrients. They cannot be used to treat any disease or as a preventive measure for any disease.

Supplements may also cause harm in several ways when they are over-consumed, particularly in the case of minerals and fat-soluble vitamins which can accumulate in the body. Their rapid absorption in a short period of time can also cause harm to the body.
