The Body

Supporting Parts of the Body

This product category lists dietary supplements intended to support specific parts of the body. 

For example, clicking on Cardiovascular System (in the column at the left) displays several related categories including Heart Health, which lists supplements formulated for the heart.

Benefits to Other Parts of the Body

All of the products listed under any one part of the body naturally provide benefits beyond its stated purpose. 

For example:

  • Dietary supplements formulated to improve the structure and function of muscle tissue may also strengthen the heart since the heart is a specialized type of muscle.
  • Supplements supplying iodine are often recommended for the thyroid gland. However, the breasts, ovaries, uterus, and prostate also require relatively large quantities of iodine compared to other cells of the body.

Some multiple nutrient formulas support the structure and function of many cell types or even all cells, thereby strengthening the entire body. We include supplements of this type under headings where benefits are most often noted by research scientists and product users.
