I’m here to help with the age old question “should I take supplements and if so, what supplements should I be taking?” Well, to help you answer that I’ve put together the top 3 supplements beneficial to your health.
What happens when you take too many supplements? Nothing really, basically you’re paying for expensive pee. Supplements that you take and your body doesn’t need, simply exit your body when you urinate. So basically you’re just wasting money. So here’s how to make an informed decision on the supplements you should be taking and what supplements are worth your money.
Our bodies make vitamins and minerals naturally, however, fish oil is obviously something our bodies don’t make. To supplement your body with what it needs, you should be taking fish oil. While you do get some benefits from actually eating fish, you’d have to eat A LOT of fish to get the required amount.
You want omega 3 in your diet. It has anti-inflammatory benefits. Increasing of a high-quality fish oil, can reduce triglycerides, reduce the risk of heart disease and help with recovery from exercise.
When most people think of taking protein, they think of huge bodybuilding men. However, protein isn’t just to bulk up and gain muscle, it’s high in Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAS). It’s not a necessity but it plays an important role in muscle building, muscle recovery and even fat loss.
While nothing can replace eating lots of fruits and vegetables, greens are a good way to improve a diet low in fruit and veg. The recommended 5 servings (or more) of fruit and veg a day can be hard to reach every day so taking green supplements can be very beneficial.
While these supplements may not be essential to everyone, if you’re not eating enough of the right foods and neglecting your body, it can be an essential part of your nutrition.
