Vitamins, Minerals, Essential Amino Acids, & Semi-Essential Amino Acids
As a consumer, you need information you can trust to help make thoughtful decisions about eating a healthful diet and using vitamin and mineral supplements. Registered dietitians at the Warren Grant Magnuson Clinical Center, the clinical research hospital at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, developed this series of fact sheets in conjunction with the NIH Office of Dietary Supplements to help you make these decisions.
These fact sheets are part of a series that will be posted here. Each undergoes extensive scientific review by recognized experts from the academic and research communities. The information is also reviewed for scientific accuracy and for consistency with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans by the Nutrition Education Subcommittee of the NIH Nutrition Coordinating Committee, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Dietary Guidance Working Group, and the Department of Health and Human Services Nutrition Policy Board Committee on Dietary Guidance.
The information is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice. It is important that you seek the advice of a physician about any medical condition or symptom. It is also important to seek the advice of a physician, registered dietitian, pharmacist, or other qualified medical practitioner about the appropriateness of taking dietary supplements and their potential interactions with medications.
