The human body is one complex conglomeration of systems that work together for a common good. Some of the main systems that make up the human body include the muscle and skeleton system, the integumentary system – which includes, skin, hair and exocrine glands, the digestive system, the respiratory system, the lymphatic system, the cardiovascular system, the nervous system, and the reproductive system. All these systems have specific functions which are crucial for the wellbeing of the human being.
When all these systems are functioning properly and have no abnormality, we say that the person is fine or okay, however when any of these systems has a problem, many times the individual will suffer from adverse effects that well make them unwell.
When this happens, the individual is said to be sick. Sicknesses can be treated through medication or the body can fight off the disease using the inbuilt immune system. There are however conditions where the individual’s systems have abnormal conditions that are unrelenting and are not easily treated. These are many times referred to as chronic diseases.
Health complications are many times caused by lack of the proper nutrients needed by the individual systems to function. For example, for one to have good hair, the body needs a good supply of biotin and other specific vitamins. Without these nutrients, an individual will not have healthy hair. The hair might start having problems such as the hair breaking off easily, not growing at the right rate, and having a dull look.
When trying to treat a sickness or condition, one needs to know the specific nutrients needed for the specific conditions that the patient is suffering from. For example, a person who is suffering from low immunity will need to be given foods such as fruits and vegetables which are rich in numerous types of vitamins. Vitamins are important in building up the lymphatic system which contributes greatly to the immunity of the body.
There are prescription supplementary vitamins that one can be able to get if they discover a lack of particular nutrients in the body. This is especially in the case for vitamins or nutrients which are rare or whose source is difficult to find. For example, one might opt to buy the vitamins necessary for memory loss and loss of mental focus instead of going around searching for herbs and roots that have these vitamins.
Buying prescription supplementary products is advantageous because it saves the individual the time that would be spent searching for the nutrient sources. Many times these sources are not locally available. Again, the raw sources might not have the nutrients in the right amounts that are required by the individual.
Prescribed supplementary nutrients are usually packaged in an easy to store, and easy to take form. Many are in the form of capsules, powder, liquid, or pills. Getting the raw product might require one to go through cumbersome processes such as grinding, slicing, cooking, or squeezing. Storage might also be a big challenge with many of these products easily going bad with poor storage.
