I’m a big believer in taking supplements. Not just any supplements, but specifically ones that have been shown to improve health and well-being. Here are some of my favorite ones!
Vitamin B, C, and D
Vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin C, and vitamin D are all essential for the body. Thiamine plays a critical role in energy production by converting carbohydrates into glucose, and it also helps maintain healthy nerves and muscles and proper blood sugar levels. Riboflavin is another B vitamin that aids in muscle function and prevents fatigue; it’s important for vision health as well—the lens of the eye needs sufficient amounts of this nutrient to form properly clear images on our retinas at night or when reading during daylight hours!
Niacin (also known as niacinamide) helps rid your body of excess water weight by stimulating fat-burning activity within cells; it also supports heart health by regulating cholesterol levels in your bloodstream so that they don’t become too high or low over time due to high triglycerides; this can lead to clogged arteries which could cause blood clots which may eventually lead death if left untreated.
Magnesium is a mineral that’s found in over 300 different enzymes in the body. Magnesium noticeably plays a role in over 600 bodily functions, including muscle contraction and relaxation, nerve function, heart rate, and blood pressure regulation.
Some of the ways that magnesium can help you improve your health include:
- regulating blood sugar levels
- controlling blood pressure (which reduces fatigue)
- keeping muscles relaxed or contracted for optimal energy production during exercise or work activities
Omega-3s are fatty acids that our bodies need to function properly. We find them in various foods, including fish and nuts, but some supplements contain omega-3s.
Omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce inflammation and improve your overall health by lowering triglyceride levels (the “bad” kind), boosting HDL cholesterol (the “good” kind), reducing blood pressure, and helping you sleep better at night.
The best and easiest way to get these benefits is through eating more healthy fats instead of sunflower oil or canola oil—they’re higher in polyunsaturated fats than other types of cooking oils, which have been shown not only to provide different nutritional benefits but also may be linked with higher rates of heart disease development over time due to their high saturated fat content when compared with monounsaturated ones such as those found in walnut kernels.
Probiotics are good for the body and can help with digestion, allergies, and skin problems. They also have been shown to promote weight loss.
Probiotics have been found to improve your immune system by increasing the number of beneficial bacteria in your gut (the largest organ). They can easily help reduce inflammation throughout your body by reducing C-reactive protein levels (CRP), a marker for heart disease risk.
Probiotics come from foods like yogurt or kefir that contain live cultures of bacteria called lactobacilli or bifidobacteria.
We hope we have done our best to help you understand some of the benefits of taking supplements. It’s important to stay healthy so that your body can continue functioning at its peak for years to come.
