What Supplements Should I take Every Day?
3 Key Supplements
There are several supplements and roads we can dive into for this article. However, for simplicity and effectiveness, we will focus on three essential supplements, why you should take them, and where to get them.
One thing to note is that we believe supplements are supplemental…they are beneficial, but they are only one piece of the health and wellness puzzle. They are not a silver bullet to address every health issue.
Disclaimer: we recommend you consult a physician or health practitioner regarding dosage and implementation.
A great multivitamin is VITAL to daily supplementation.
This is a no-brainer and a great place to start, as it can address many aspects to supplement your health and well-being. Like many supplements, quality and dosing is essential.
Where to start? Seeking Health Multivitamin ONE MF is where we like to start for multivitamins.
2. Gone Fishin’
Fish oils might make you burp, but they may also help support heart health by aiding cholesterol levels.
Other potential benefits can include healthier skin and aid in reducing inflammation.
Where to start? Nordic Naturals Pro Omega 2000.
Fish oil should be high EPA, generally speaking, or high DHA if it’s specifically for neurological benefits. Either way, it has to be an adequate dose and adequate quality to be effective.
3. G-utterly Delicious
Probiotic this, Probiotic that. This is a really trendy supplement that many have capitalized on, and for a good reason.
When one finds an excellent probiotic, it can help heal your gut and improve well-being in several ways:
- Diarrhea (both diarrhea caused by antibiotics and from Clostridioides difficile (C. diff) infection)
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
- Yeast infections
- Urinary tract infections
- Gum disease
- Lactose intolerance
- Eczema (atopic dermatitis)
- Upper respiratory infections (ear infections, common cold, sinusitis)
- Sepsis (specifically in infants)
Where to start? For Probiotics, you want to look for two-to-three specific strains with a lot of research behind them: Lactobacillus, acidophilus, and bifidobacterium.
Where to Start? The HMF Forte by Genestra has high-quality human-strain probiotics.
Next Steps in Your Supplementation Journey
