(NewsTarget) Supplements like Coenzyme Q10, amino acids, even a daily multiple vitamin can provide your body with natural health benefits. So why would the pharmaceutical companies have a problem with this? Think about it. If nutritional supplements worked for even a small portion of the people currently bound to their prescription medications for heart disease, arthritis, diabetes and other degenerative diseases, the drug companies would stand to lose a lot of money!

That's why they spend tons of money trying to discredit anything that may even hint of helping you. Americans more than ever before realize the importance of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients in not only preventing disease, but also in promoting good health.

For example, nonprescription guaifenesin works well to clear phlegm from the chest. Guaifenesin has also been used to manage symptoms of fibromyalgia.

The aging baby boomer generation is becoming skeptical about drugs and turning more to supplements. According to the Alliance of Dietary/Food Supplement Association, calcium, glucosamine, coenzyme Q 10, and women's multi-vitamins are some of the supplements most preferred and purchased.

This makes sense since women are most at risk of developing osteoporosis and their physicians will likely prescribe hormone replacement therapy. However, reports indicate multiple side effects to these types of treatment. Women are therefore looking at nutritional supplements as an alternative, such as calcium magnesium supplements or glucosamine.

Stress, according to current medical research, depletes our bodies' level of vital nutrients. With air pollution, junk foods and the high level of stress most Americans function under, nutritional supplements should be part of everyone's daily routine.

Today, more than ever, augmenting your diets with dietary supplements makes good sense. But more than that, you also need to be open to the idea that these vitamins and minerals may help you escape the ravages of some of the diseases that many of us as we age fall prey to. That being said, it's important to do some homework and choose the right supplements for you in the proper dosages.
