Orthomolecular substances are used in orthomolecular medicine, a method of complementary medicine. It is intended to create a bridge between nutritional science and medicine. The method focuses on vitamins, minerals, trace elements, fatty acids and enzymes that are naturally present in the human body and are to be passed on to the patient in a partially highly dosed form, e.g. as food supplements. Orthomolecular medicine is based on the basic assumption that patients cannot absorb the daily required vital substances in sufficient quantities, resulting in a deficit in the nutrient balance.
