FOOD SUPPLEMENTS

The last decades, Food Supplements have become a part of many peoples’ everyday lives, as they play a key role in their diets.

Through a balanced nutrition, it is possible to receive the majority of essential components, such as minerals and vitamins, in order to maintain a good health. However, there are several ingredients which are difficult to intake or absorb exclusively through our diets. In addition, fast pace of life, increased levels of stress and malnourishment, are only some of the factors that may lead to deficiencies and to degradation of the immune system.

Food Supplements are here to fill in this gap!

However, the market has become saturated by numerous Food Supplements which most of the times are not supported by scientific claims or claims approved by EFSA.
