Dietary supplements are products aimed at providing nutrients that may not otherwise be consumed in sufficient quantities. Supplements may include vitamins, minerals, fibre, and fatty acids. Dietary supplements are popular in the UK. However, most people get all the vitamins and minerals they need from food sources and sun exposure. Supplements may be recommended at certain times for the elderly, pregnant women, and children.
