Several studies have been conducted to understand the benefits of nutritional supplements; majority have concluded that, though nutritional supplements to some extent do make up for poor dietary habits, they are not really helpful in the long run.

It is therefore, important to understand when one really needs these supplements. One should generally take supplements if:
• They consume less than 1600 calories per day
• Follow a vegan or vegetarian diet
• Have a medical condition that prevents the body from using or absorbing the nutrients properly.
