In today’s world, it is more important than ever to make sure that you are getting the nutrients your body needs. The food that we eat is not as nutrient-rich as it once was, and our lifestyles are much more sedentary.
This can lead to a number of health problems such as fatigue, stress, and chronic pain. That’s why supplements are so important! They help you get the vitamins and minerals your body needs for good health and function.
In this post, I will discuss the five best supplements that I recommend to my patients for everyday use and explain why they are so beneficial for your health!
Whole-Food Supplements Provide High-Quality Nutrition
First, let me explain what kind of nutritional supplements I’m talking about in this post. When I talk about the benefits of nutritional supplements, I mean whole-food supplements. This is a specific type of supplement that is derived from actual food.
Now, you can get extra nutrients in your diet through eating a wide variety of foods. However, not everyone can eat all the different foods they need to have in a day to meet all their nutritional needs. So what we can do then is supplement our diet with organic whole food supplements.
When compared to synthetic supplements, organic whole-food supplements contain the vitamins, minerals and enzymes contained in the plant and therefore work with the body as if you were eating real food because that is exactly what you are doing, eating real food!
I know many of you look at labels and read the count of vitamins and minerals contained in the supplements purchased at the pharmacy, et al. These labels list each vitamin/mineral plus the percent Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDA) of each.
But these percentages can be misleading because one begins to think that more is better. This in fact is not true!
So, here I go again:
It is best to consume an organically derived whole food supplement that is balanced the exact way intended by nature. An organically derived whole food supplement contains the exact balance of vitamins, minerals and enzymes that your body needs and requires to function at a high level!
5 Supplements You Should Take Every Day
Which supplements are the most important ones to take? Here are the five supplements I recommend that my patients take every day and why they are valuable to your overall health:
1. Multivitamin with Minerals
One of the best things you can do for your body is to make sure it gets everything it needs to run smoothly. Multivitamins with minerals help to do that. If you don’t eat a variety of foods, you could be missing some important vitamins and minerals that your body needs.
This type of supplement is great for any diet because it helps ensure your body gets what it needs for good cell function and overall health.
2. Vitamin D
If you remember the commercials, you know that milk is a good source of Vitamin D and helps build strong bones. But what if you don’t drink milk fortified with Vitamin D?
That’s where supplements come in handy. A good Vitamin D supplement will enable your body to absorb calcium, which is important for good bone health. Vitamin D can also support a healthy immune system.
3. B Vitamins
B Vitamins, especially if you take a B-complex, are fantastic for supporting your energy, red blood cell growth, brain function, cardiovascular health, and more (depending on which specific B-vitamins you take).
The B-family of vitamins are essential for your body’s overall health, which is why I always recommend them to my patients.
4. Omega-3 Oil
Omega-3 fatty acids are what you usually get from eating seafood such as tuna. These oils are important for the normal function of your heart, brain, and skin. They are also great at regulating your body’s inflammatory response, which can be beneficial to those who are trying to reduce inflammation in their joints.
5. Trace Minerals with B-12
Lastly, I always recommend my patients add Trace Minerals with extra B-12 to their diets. As I’ve mentioned, most people don’t get enough variety of nutrients in their diets. If you aren’t eating enough meats, nuts, vegetables, etc., you could be missing out on vital nutrients.
Trace Minerals give you additional support for your bones, immune system, thyroid, and metabolism to help you stay well.
