Definition of "Orthomolecular"
The term "Orthomolecular" literally means 'correct molecules,' with the molecules being vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and essential fatty acids that are essential for proper functioning of the body.
Orthomolecular therapy is health preservation and disease prevention with supplementation (sometimes in high doses) of substances normally present in the body.
