You all lead busy lives. This can mean it is difficult to get every single vitamin and mineral the body needs on a given day. Perhaps you had to skip breakfast to do the school run or work through lunch because of a deadline, either way, you have had to miss out on important things that your body needs. Thankfully, there are supplements that everyone can take that give you exactly what your body needs to stay healthy. Which ones to take and when can be difficult to know, though. So here are some helpful tips.
You can take one per day vitamin tablets with food, and they will just give an extra boost. Taking a single multivitamin tablet contains everything you need for a given day, but you should not rely on it as your only source. If you think that you are not getting enough of a vitamin (or a few) then considering picking a bottle of vitamin tablets. You can suffer from a variety of illnesses if you are vitamin deficient, so it’s important to make sure that you stay on top of your vitamin intake! Vitamins all have different benefits that can improve your life in different ways. For example, if you are not getting enough vitamin A, then you will notice you have dry, rough skin and you will become more susceptible to infectious diseases. If you are not sure whether you should be taking supplements, like when you are pregnant for example, always consider visiting a doctor or other medical profession for their advice.
If you are trying to put on muscle, then it can be difficult to eat enough protein. I am definitely guilty of this. I hate the taste of most protein powders, but I complain that my butt isn’t growing fast enough! Meat can also be expensive to buy and I sometimes don’t want to over do my caloric intake. As much as I dislike the texture and taste of protein shakes, it is SO necessary to keep your muscles strong and help them grow. I’m no expert but there are great websites and resources, like proteinpowderexpert.com, which offer guidance on which other supplements you can take while trying to get or stay fit. Like any other type of supplement, it should not be taken lightly or without researching first.
Omega 3 Tablets
Omega 3 is primarily found in oily fish, and not enough people are getting the right amount of omega 3. This could be due to the fact that they dislike fish, or perhaps they are vegan or vegetarian. Either way, taking an omega 3 supplement can give it to your body without you needing to have eaten any fish – just do not bite the tablet as it does not taste great. According to www.umm.edu, omega 3 is especially beneficial to people with joint pain, stiffness, and can even help with memory and general cognitive awareness. Overall, omega 3 is excellent for your body and is definitely something to consider adding to your daily supplement intake.
Hope this was a good little intro crash course to supplements!
