Statistics confirm that more than 80% of Americans use nutritional supplements on a daily basis. Many people are effectively using natural therapies to combat or prevent disease. A perfect example is the growing popularity of heart health supplements like coenzyme Q10 and Omegas III fats from fish oil. People who suffer from arthritis are finding relief using anti-inflammatory herbs and targeted nutrients that will help with the rebuilding of damaged joints. In this category you'll also find targeted therapies for liver and urinary tract function, prostate health and mood and sleep disorders.
