Supplements are most beneficial when they address specific nutritional deficiencies.

However, a recent poll by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) reveals that while 86% of Americans take supplements, only 21% have a confirmed nutritional deficiency. Most people who take supplements regularly do so to achieve broader goals including boosting energy, enhancing overall health and combatting aging.

According to Terri DeNeui, DNP, ACNP, APRN-BC, chief medical officer of EVEXIAS Health Solutions, pharmacies, online retailers, social media companies and other major industry players all promote supplements as a way to improve health and extend life. However, it’s imperative to understand that there are no regulatory bodies overseeing the benefits of supplements purchased over the counter.

While some supplements claim they can reduce inflammation, improve appearance, or even increase comfort as you age, claims that they can reverse aging are usually too good to be true.
