There are some health products, although the effect is accurate, but not everyone is suitable to eat. It needs to be purchased according to the user’s physical condition or according to the doctor’s recommendation.
Protein powder is not needed by
ordinary people , and it is more suitable for people who cannot eat well and have a large demand for protein.
Suitable crowd: the elderly with loss of appetite, special patients (except those with liver and kidney disease), high-intensity training and fitness people, pregnant/breastfeeding women.
The main ingredient of protein powder is only protein. For people who eat normally, meat, eggs and milk have very good high-quality protein. An egg a day, a glass of milk and a little meat can properly meet the protein needs of the day. There is no need to eat extra. If you accidentally eat too much, it will increase the amount of “exhaust” every day.
However, for those who have a high demand for protein, they can indeed choose. For example, the elderly with bad teeth and unable to eat, protein powder is simple to eat, does not require teeth and is easy to swallow.
Melatonin is a health supplement and cannot treat insomnia.
Suitable crowd: occupational groups such as shift work, night light work, and people who need jet lag.
Melatonin itself is a biological rhythm-related hormone secreted by everyone. Indeed, melatonin can help people with short or irregular sleep to get better sleep, such as shift work, night light work and so on. But melatonin is not a medicine, it can only play an auxiliary role, and does not mean that it has a therapeutic effect.
Randomized trials have shown that short-term consumption of melatonin can improve sleep in patients with insomnia, but the effect is limited; the efficacy and safety of long-term use are also yet to be verified, and it is not recommended as the first choice. For most people with poor sleep, regular work and rest, mental adjustment, and a good sleep environment are more meaningful than taking melatonin. Iron supplements are harmful if ingested
in excess, try to buy them as directed by your doctor. Suitable crowd: vegetarians, iron-deficiency anemia.
For women of childbearing age, women planning to conceive and during pregnancy, infants and young people, and people who have been vegetarians for a long time, it is indeed necessary to pay special attention to iron supplementation and eat more iron-rich foods.
In the daily diet, the intake of iron can be increased through animal blood, liver, and red lean meat. The iron contained in these foods is heme iron, which has a high bioavailability.
However, for people who cannot get enough through dietary supplements, iron supplements can be used to satisfy them. Especially if the problem of iron deficiency anemia is found through inspection (refer to hemoglobin, ferritin and other indicators), iron supplementation should be supplemented under the guidance of a doctor.
will not be deficient daily, no additional purchases are required.
Vitamin E is the primary antioxidant on biofilms, helps maintain membrane integrity, and is also necessary for the proper functioning of the immune system.
In the daily diet, the source of vitamin E is very rich, and it is found in oil, nuts, egg yolk, and animal liver. It is difficult to have vitamin E deficiency. Vitamin E is minimally toxic and ingested through food does not cause adverse effects. But taking large amounts of vitamin E supplements can bring side effects, including blood clotting disorders.
At present, there is insufficient evidence to support daily vitamin E supplementation to prevent cardiovascular disease and cancer, and it is not necessary for the general population to deliberately supplement.
Suitable crowd: People with irregular diet.
”Monitoring of Nutrition and Health Status of Chinese Residents in 2010-2012″ shows that the intake of vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and vitamin C is insufficient among mainland residents, accounting for 77.0%, 77.8%, 90.2% and 67.7% respectively. of people consuming less than the average requirement.
For many migrant workers, irregular meals, unbalanced food intake, often forced to stay up late, and high mental stress may result in insufficient nutrient intake, so appropriate supplementation can be considered. Suitable crowd for
vitamin C : People with insufficient intake of fruits and vegetables.
Vitamin C is necessary for maintaining the body’s immunity, but it is not that more is better. It is wise to ingest the appropriate amount. 100-200 mg per day is enough. If it exceeds the safe upper limit of 2000 mg, some people may experience symptoms of poisoning such as abdominal distension and diarrhea. Adhering to a healthy diet, regular exercise, and adequate sleep is the key to maintaining immunity.
Another study found that giving vitamin C supplements to very active soldiers or marathon runners cut the risk of colds in half. But for the average person, daily vitamin C supplementation does not play a role in reducing the risk of colds. In short, it is recommended that you eat 300-500 grams of vegetables and 200-350 grams of fresh fruits every day, so that you can ensure enough vitamin C intake.
vegetarians may consider additional supplements.
Suitable crowd: vegetarian crowd.
Vegetarians are prone to vitamin B deficiencies, especially vitamin B12, because they cannot eat animal foods. In daily life, you can increase the intake of fermented soy products and mushrooms to supplement, and you can also choose vitamin B12 supplements when necessary.
However, for ordinary people, vitamin B intake is a lot of food, and it is unlikely that there will be a lack of it, so there is no need for additional supplementation.
Dietary fiber: People with
constipation and insufficient intake of whole grains of vegetables and fruits can try it.
Suitable crowd: People with insufficient intake of vegetables and fruits.
Dietary fiber is an essential nutrient for the human body and is abundant in various vegetables, fruits, whole grains and beans. Dietary fiber has a variety of health benefits, such as improving constipation, helping maintain weight, reducing the risk of diabetes and heart disease, and preventing certain cancers.
For the general population, it is best to consume 25 to 30 grams of dietary fiber per day, which is preferably obtained from food, and the variety is rich and comprehensive. The types of dietary fiber contained in supplements are generally not as rich as natural foods. When you can’t eat enough through food, consider fiber supplements.
