Orthomolecular medicine describes the practice of preventing and treating disease by providing the body with optimal amounts of substances which are natural to the body by changing the concentration of substances normally present in the body and are responsible for health.
The term “Orthomolecular” first described by the molecular biologist and two-time winner of Nobel Prize, Linus Pauling.
Orthomolecular comes from the words “ortho” which in Greek means correct and “molecular”, so the meaning of orthomolecular means the “right molecule”.
Orthomolecular products, provide the body with vitamins, trace elements, minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, probiotics and aminoacids. They are all ingredients that we can receive from our daily diet, but nowadays many people does not follow a well balanced diet so is necessary to receive those ingredients with food supplements.
