A well-balanced diet is essential for a healthy body, along with a healthy lifestyle including regular exercise. However, despite the knowledge that proper nutrition can help us maintain good health, few of us find it easy put this theory into practice on a daily basis.
Food supplements are not a substitute for a well-balanced diet. Rather, they are designed to support the daily diet, helping to ensure that the levels of intake of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are maintained at an optimum level, particularly on the days where temptation rules and our diet might be less balanced. Supplements may be used to correct nutritional deficiencies or maintain an adequate intake of certain nutrients.
Food supplements are concentrated sources of nutrients or other substances with a nutritional or physiological effect. Food supplements are marketed as pills, tablets, capsules or liquids in measured doses etc.
We completely agree with and support the work done by and what the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN UK) stands for. The association is dedicated to technical, scienti c and regulatory matters with the objective of making sure that legislation is realistic and of positive benefit to its members.
LanesHealth are long standing members of CRN UK and appreciate the valuable job that the organisation does in working with the authorities in both the UK and Europe to ensure favourable and proportionate legislation.We welcome the ongoing work of CRN UK to raise standards across the supplement industry and the extensive technical support that is available to our company.
The CRN UK is invaluable in providing rapid interpretation of the constantly changing regulatory and technical environment in which we operate. A key strength, which leads to many positive outcomes, is its collaborative approach to shaping future regulations in partnership with UK and EU authorities.
