A dietary supplement is intended to enhance the nutritional value of diet. Dietary ingredients that are contained in such supplements could be: vitamins, herbs, minerals, amino acids, extracts, concentrates, metabolites or constituents. Dietary supplements are sold in different forms such as capsules and tablets, softgels, powders, liquids, or gelcaps. While some dietary supplements are intended to help lower the risk of certain health disorders or diseases, other types of such supplements are meant to add essential nutrients to one’s regular diet. The composition of dietary supplements differs based on their targeted consumer age. Another distinguishing aspect of dietary supplements is that they are taken orally.
