Health foods contain a certain amount of functional ingredients that can regulate the body's functions and have specific effects for a specific population. General foods do not have specific functions and no specific population.
Health food can not be directly used to treat diseases, it is a human body mechanism regulator and nutritional supplement. The medicine is used directly to treat the disease.
There are many nutrients needed by the human body, such as water, protein, fat, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, etc. Nutritional products are generally rich in these nutrients, which are suitable for everyone. For example, milk is rich in protein, fat and calcium. Its nutritional value is high and everyone is suitable for drinking. The health food is a food that has a specific health function and is only suitable for a specific group of people, and its nutritional value is not necessarily high. Therefore, the various nutrients the body needs are still obtained from three meals a day.
Of course, health care products are better in some aspects. Health care products can obtain more than the nutritional products in terms of fixed health care functions. The minerals of the human body are not balanced, so in some aspects health care products have a greater advantage.
