    Important definitions to know

    Dietary supplement: is a substance that completes or that is in addition to one’s daily dietary intake.

    RDA (recommended dietary allowance): This is the approximate amount of calories/nutrients that one should consume on a daily basis to maintain good health. This estimation is created by the National Research Council, National Academy of Sciences and the food in nutrition board.

    AI (Adequate Intake): This is the recommended daily intake of a certain nutrient. This is only used when RDA is not determined.

    UL (Tolerable upper intake level): This is classified as the highest level of nutrient intake that is most likely to not have any risk for adverse effects for most of the general public. If you go over the UL, you increase your risk to experience adverse effects.
