Supplementation is much more than just taking a daily multivitamin, although that is important. Having blood tests done can determine your nutrient and vitamin levels which can tell you what you need more of and what needs to be balanced out. This is the first step to better health. Having nutrient and vitamin deficiencies can sometimes cause all kinds of health issues that can lead to serious problems including cancer and autoimmune diseases.
Here are 5 reasons why supplementation is important for your health:
- Supplementation can promote weight loss
- Supplementation can keep your immune system working properly
- Supplementation can keep your joints, bones, and muscles strong
- Supplementation can keep you looking youthful
- Supplementation can help regulate your hormones
Here are 5 supplements to take regularly to keep living a healthy and happy life:
1. Fish Oil (DHA/EPA)
Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids that help the body reduce inflammation and can also improve heart health.
Probiotics, which are essentially healthy and beneficial bacteria, is used to assist in digestion and stomach conditions.
3. Digestive Enzymes
Digestive enzymes help your body break down food and absorb the important nutrients that it needs.
Multivitamins provide you with the recommended daily value of nutrients your body needs if you do not eat a well-rounded diet, or if your body has trouble absorbing nutrients naturally.
5. Vitamin D3
Vitamin D3 has many benefits, including improving bone health, skin health, assisting in weight loss and strengthening your immune system.
