Supplement & Vitamin Definitions & Glossary

What are supplements, minerals, and vitamins?  While most people know that they are vital to good health, few supplement manufacturers supply good information about their supplement products.  Vitamins and minerals are primarily derived from the food we eat.  However, seniors often cannot derive the full amount of vitamins and minerals that they need and taking supplements under a doctor or nutritionist's guidance may be recommended.

SeniorMag does not sell supplements nor do we maintain any interest in any supplement manufacturer.  Therefore, information about supplements contained in these pages is without bias by any supplement supplier.  

So much information about supplements is available, but most of it is aimed at producing supplement sales.  We believe that if you understand supplements properly and how they are used, you can use them more effectively.
