There are many different types of dietary supplements, which can all be grouped into three categories. The first of these is any and all herbal supplements which are usually passed by the FDA (food and drug administration) quite easily as they often do not get any side effects and will usually only be examined for the manufacturing process and not the actual ingredient.
The second type of dietary supplement is vitamins that come in all shapes and sizes which can change the strength as well as the form in which they are sold ranging from liquid to capsule and pill form. Often Vitamin B complex which is packaged in an oil based injectable form can also be just as easily taken in pill or capsule form.
Another form of dietary supplement are minerals which again will range in the different forms they are sold and can often be found in an injectable form used in hospitals to deal with various diseases so that the dose is a lot higher than is found in the capsule or pill form seen on the shelf in a health store.
The last type of dietary supplement seen in our markets is probiotics which have been described as the name given to all ingested microorganisms that are associated with the beneficial effects to humans as well as animals. This concept was first put forward by the Nobel Prize recipient called Eli Metchnikoff.
In 1907 he said "the dependence of the intestinal microbes on the food makes it possible to adopt measures to modify the flora in our bodies and to replace the harmful microbes by useful microbes." Basically he was saying that there is a way that digestion can be altered by simply taking additional flora type supplements we can improve the health by improving the digestion of our foods.
