Focus on food first

Keep in mind that it’s always best to choose food first over dietary supplements. Nutritious foods like fruits, veggies, whole grains, nuts, seeds, and lean protein contain a wide range of nutrients to boost your health and immunity.

  • Tip from the field: If you choose to use supplements, make sure to screen them for safety. Operation Supplement Safety (OPSS) provides evidence-based information about the safe use of dietary supplements to Service Members and their families, healthcare providers, and leaders to achieve human performance optimization.
