  1. Multivitamins and minerals
  2. Omega-3
  3. Vitamin D

Well-being should always be everyone’s priority! We should all be taking care of our own selves whether that means indulging in a sport or buying Aviance products for our skin. It also doesn’t matter if you’re in a relationship or already a mother of multiple children; always prioritize your well-being over someone else’s because how else are you going to care for them when you’re not well enough to do so?

One popular and effective way to maintain good health and wellness is to take daily supplements. It’s easy to see people carrying pill cases and stocking bottles of nutrients at their home or their work desks. The reason people choose to take supplements is because they’re easy and convenient.

However, with so many types of supplements available in the market, how do you know which one to take? Don’t fret much for this answer, that’s what we’re going to tell you now. In this article, we’ll list the supplements that everyone should be taking, so just keep on scrolling!

Multivitamins and Minerals

Multivitamins and Minerals

Everyone needs 6-8 servings of fruits and vegetables each day, but this is hard to get even if you’re eating healthy. If you do get to eat the recommended amount, you still probably aren’t getting optimum levels of nutrients. Most produce is grown in nutrient-depleted soil and, as a result, end up lacking in vitamin and mineral content.

Vitamin and mineral deficiency wouldn’t be a problem if you eat organic produce, but the reality is that most people don’t always eat organic foods. In order to get adequate nutrients, you can take multivitamins and mineral supplements.

But don’t just get anything from behind-the-counter. Make sure that you’re getting good quality multivitamins that are scientifically balanced. What this means is that it can dissolve and absorb properly in your body; your cells will be able to use these nutrients.

 

Omega-3

Omega-3 offers many benefits. It promotes joint health, breast and prostate health, brain and nerve health, heart health, and also helps in pregnancy. Fish is the best source of omega-3 but it has been in the center of some controversy in recent years. There is increasing concern about harmful toxins like mercury found in fish.

So if you can’t depend on natural food sources, then the next best thing is to take it as a supplement. Fish oil supplements are widely available and you can get your required dose of omega-3 from them. Experts recommend adults to consume 100mg of combined EPA and DHA – forms of omega-3 – for good health.

 Vitamin D

Vitamin D

Most people are deficient in vitamin D because they work indoors and wear sunscreen. There are also some who take lengths to avoid the sun because of its harmful effects. This means that they do not have enough sun exposure and don’t get adequate amounts of vitamin D.

We should be concerned about this because vitamin D aids in the development and maintenance of our bones and teeth. It also aids in the absorption and use of phosphorous and calcium.

Since there are many forms of vitamin D, people get confused on what they really need. We’re going to set things straight now and tell you that your supplement should contain vitamin D3. A daily dose of 1000IU – 5000IIU is the usual expert recommendation, so make sure you’re getting that much.

 

Magnesium

Nearly 80% of adults suffer from magnesium deficiency and this isn’t a good sign. Magnesium, the calming mineral, plays a critical role in at least 300 enzymatic reactions including muscular contraction and relaxation, synthesis of fat, protein and nucleic acids, nerve and heart health, and bone building.

It is also needed for the production of serotonin, building of protein, and the metabolism of adenosine triphosphate. These are just a few of the things magnesium does to maintain our health; it’d take a whole article just to list all of them.

There are many activities that allow for the depletion of magnesium in our body. Examples of these are drinking coffee, heavy alcohol consumption, and experiencing too much stress. If you do or experience any of these, it is recommended that you take magnesium supplements.

 Probiotics

Probiotics

Probiotics are actually live bacteria that play an important role in our wellness by improving digestion, boosting the immune system, and keeping bad bacteria in check. They also control yeast overgrowth and inhibit lactose intolerance. In short, probiotics are good bacteria and we need about 10 to 30 billion live units each day.

These bacteria naturally occur in the gut but they can be killed by antibiotics, poor diet, and pollution. As they decrease in number the more our body system goes out of balance and the more prone we are to symptoms and illness.

Probiotics can only come from two sources. The first one is fermented foods like yogurt, kimchi, sauerkraut, and kombucha tea. The second is from probiotics supplements, so if you don’t fancy fermented foods then you can opt for these instead.

 

Key Takeaway

Experts often caution people against buying supplements but only when they settle for the cheapest options or for whatever’s popular or on sale. They also advise against taking supplements without proper doctor recommendation because it’s easy to overdose on these pills. But if you go about it the right way, you’re guaranteed to maintain your body’s health and wellness.

That said, it is also important to know that health and wellness don’t just come from tablets and supplements. It should be accompanied by proper diet, regular exercise, and a little self-pampering. So go out and engage in physical activities, eat your fruits and veggies, and splurge on a few Aviance products for your skin.
