supplement is, typically, a nutrient added to a foodstuff
which would otherwise not contain that nutrient. In general,
the term is restricted to those additives which are deemed to
be positive for health, growth or well-being.
ranges of food supplements are recognised:
which repair a deficit to "normal" levels
which appear to enhance a food
taken in addition to the normal diet
today disagree with the premise that foodstuffs need supplementation,
but accept that - for example - added calcium may provide benefit,
or that adding folic acid may correct a nutritional deficiency
especially in pregnant women.
On a more
controversial level, but well founded in scientific basis, is
the science of using foods and food supplements to achieve a
defined health goal. A common example of this use of food supplements
is the extent to which body builders will use amino acid mixtures,
vitamins and phytochemicals to enhance natural hormone production,
increase muscle and reduce fat.
from this reasonably accepted usage, there is increasing evidence
for the use of food supplements in established medical conditions.
This nutritional supplementation using foods as medicine (nutraceuticals)
has been effectively used in treating disorders affecting the
immune system up to and including cancers. This goes beyond
the definition of "food supplement", but should be included
for the sake of completeness.
