Nutritional Supplements

Samantha Cowan
Accredited Practising Dietitian and Sports Dietitian

You don’t need to take nutrition supplements always. There might be certain medications where your GP or rheumatologist might recommend you take some nutrition supplements to counteract certain medications.

The important thing to know is that nutrition supplements are not complementary therapies. There is evidence behind certain nutrition supplements in protecting overall health. There are some excellent information out there on the internet and there is also some not-so-great information out there.

The websites that I would recommend for the best tips on healthy eating and nutrition for managing your condition are the Eat For Health government website, the Better Health Channel , and the Dietitian’s Association of Australia website.
