Nutritional Supplements in Society Today
We live in a fast moving society and there is not very often time for healthy and adequate nutrition – nutritional supplements should be taken in order to cover the daily requirements.
Opinions on nutritional supplements diverge a lot – some recommend the intake of nutritional supplements and yet others pose it toxic for the human body. Such extreme mindsets on nutritional supplements make it hard for the consumer to come to a decision. Nutritional supplements yes or no?
The Dosage is Important – Nutritional supplements from another angle of view
Like Paracelsus, a Swiss German physician and alchemist, said, „The dose makes the poison“– this applies to nutritional supplements as well. Depending on the kind of nutritional supplements – i.e. which kind of vital substances, like magnesium, calcium or vitamins – we should pay attention to the right dosage and the point in time of the intake. The human body can absorb only a certain amount of nutritional supplements, surpluses may lead to hydration of the human body or will be excreted through urine. In both cases, the intake would defeat the purpose of nutritional supplements and it is a waste of money.
Currently there are different forms of nutritional supplements: effervescent tablets, pastilles, granules or powder. All these kinds are supposed to cover the daily requirements with one sip or within a few minutes of intake (drinking). We are looking for a reasonable form of intake of nutritional supplements and we would like to make it possible through the TASTETOP technology.
