Health supplements, also known as dietary supplements are a common fad. They come as vitamins, minerals, herbs, botanicals, amino acids and a multitude of other formulations. There are over 50,000 supplements available, most if not all claiming some health benefits. All this is fueled by an insatiable craze to swallow anything claiming to be natural, resulting into a multi-billion dollar industry.
If you ask people to judge their prevailing health status, you’ll get all sorts of responses. At one extreme, some will claim to be in the best of health. The other extreme is those who are already aware of being in a state of poor health. The majority tend to fall in between, they have no sense of their prevailing health status. They just toddle along hoping for the best.
Modern working environments are full of deliverables and deadlines, and many people struggle to fit it all into a typical eight-hour working day. Working smart doesn’t always get you an hour or so to spare. If you aren’t too careful, you may find yourself slipping down the path of workaholics. That means a struggle to fit in gym time, quiet relaxation moments, or even time for an unhurried healthy meal. You’d be losing in matters of health if all you did is work, work, and more work. You can let everything else slip, but you must dedicate time for health in any typical working day.
