Best supplements for nutrition
Let’s face it, there are about a billion different supplements out there. You’re shown them on the daily and it can become super overwhelming which ones to pick! Here are the top 5 supplements that professionals actually use:
One of the key nutrients many of us don’t get enough of is long chain omega 3 fats which is conveniently packaged in fish oils such as salmon. There is evidence to show that omega 3 fatty acids are important for healthy heart and brain function. Also it can help with inflammation which so many of us suffer from on a daily basis.
Probiotics are ‘good’ bacteria that line our digestive tracts and support our body’s ability to absorb nutrients and fight infection. The health of our gut is directly related to our immune system, so packing in a probiotic is going to be a simple way to keep that flowing. There are lots of forms of probiotics, so go with the one that feels best to you. There are probiotics to support immunity, digestion, and some even help to regulate weight and balance hormones.
Winter blues are the real deal and vitamin D can help you to avoid seasonal depression. It is also important for strong bones, muscles and overall health. Most of us probably get enough vitamin D outside in the summer, but if you are an indoor person, or during the winter months a vitamin D supplement can really help you out.
Magnesium is an important nutrient which plays a role in hundreds of enzymatic bodily reactions, including metabolising food and synthesis of fatty acids and proteins. It also helps you get a better night’s sleep and manages your stress levels!
While most people can obtain adequate protein through their diet no matter if you’re a full on carnivore or prefer a more plant-based approach, anyone working out regularly can benefit from a protein supplement. When it comes to muscle gain and fat loss, protein is the king of nutrients. Protein has also been proven to help weight loss by boosting your metabolism and reducing your appetite!
