A precondition for good health is correct and diversified nutrition. Correct nutrition can satisfy all the needs of the body for vitamins, minerals and other substances.

For all this, there is a scarcity of vitamins, minerals and other components in the body, which are necessary for good health, and the incorrect nutrition is substituted with an intake of dietary supplements.
