Start Young, Start Early

Prepared by Nutritionist Chen Yin


We have become increasingly aware of the importance of maintaining good health, especially after COVID-19 hit us. One area that has gained significant attention in recent years is the use of dietary supplements. While some people may associate supplements with older adults, it's important to understand that taking supplements from a young age can be incredibly beneficial for overall health.

Here are some reasons why taking supplements can be essential from a young age:

Nutrient Deficiencies

Even if we eat a balanced and healthy diet, it can be challenging to consume all the essential vitamins and minerals our bodies need to function correctly. This is especially true for young children and teenagers, who may be picky eaters or have limited access to nutrient-dense foods. Taking supplements can help fill in the gaps and ensure that they are getting all the nutrients they need for optimal growth and development.

Support Immune System

Our immune system plays a crucial role in protecting us against diseases and illnesses. Studies have shown that certain supplements, such as vitamin C, vitamin D, and zinc, can boost the immune system and help prevent infections. Starting to take these supplements at a young age can help establish a strong immune system, which can be beneficial for overall health throughout life.

Support Mental Health

Mental health is just as crucial as physical health, and studies have shown that certain supplements can help support healthy brain function and mood. For example, omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil supplements can help reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety. Starting to take supplements that support mental health from a young age can help establish healthy habits and promote overall wellbeing.

In conclusion, taking supplements from a young age can be incredibly beneficial for overall health and wellbeing. It's important to seek advices from professional such as pharmacist, nutritionist etc. before starting any supplement regimen to ensure that it's safe and appropriate for individual needs.
