They are available in the form of tablets, capsules, gummies, energy bars and drinks. A dietary supplement helps to balance the daily requirement of nutrients if not completely available by food. Some of the dietary supplements are meant to manage health conditions and overall health. Such as calcium and vitamin D to maintain bone health in women and omega-3 fatty acids for heart health.
