Dietary supplements are nutrients extracted from food sources or synthetically made and are intended to supplement or increase their levels when consumed. These dietary supplements include minerals, herbs, vitamins, fatty acids, amino acids, collagen, enzymes, and fiber. They are distributed as capsules, tablets, gummies, powders, drinks, and energy bars.

Because they are mostly extracted from food, these compounds are found in ordinary food sources, such that when consuming a well-balanced diet, one can approximate to sufficient levels in the body. However, when food intake is not balanced or inadequate for some supplements, taking supplements can be beneficial.
