The Five Most Important Supplements
First is an excellent quality multi-vitamin. This is essential because the multi fills in what your diet is lacking. The multi provides the essential nutrients your body needs for optimal functioning. Don’t purchase store brands or nationally advertised Multis, they come up short in testing, stick to the Brand Name Multis sold in Health Food Stores or on line.
Second is a quality Omega-3 supplement.Fish oil is today’s bestselling supplement and with good reason. The EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) in omega-3 fish oil have profoundly positive effects on human health. Omega-3 has shown many positives with regard to health issues.
Third is CoQ-10 (also known as ubiquinol) it is a nutrient produced by the “energy factories” in your cells called mitochondria. Taking a CoQ-10 supplement boosts the way your cells produce and use energy. It also helps your body burn fat, improves cholesterol ratios, boosts your physical energy levels and improves thyroid and pancreas functions.
Fourth is Magnesium. You’ve been hearing about calcium and bone health forever, but did you know that calcium can not be absorbed unless magnesium is present. Without it, calcium is much less effective in maintaining your bones and regulating your nerve and muscle tone. Magnesium may be the most important mineral you can take because it’s a key player in 300 essential bodily functions, and is used by all of your organs. It activates enzymes, powers your energy and helps your body absorb vitamin D, potassium and zinc.
Fifth is Vitamin D, which has many marvelous benefits. Most Americans are badly deficient in vitamin D because doctors consider the sun our enemy and your skin converts solar rays into this essential vitamin. Make sure you purchase vitamin D3 because it is 87% more potent than other D vitamins.
