3 Supplements You Should Probably Be Taking

I call them the supplement staples.  Although I am certainly not an advocate for overdoing pharmaceuticals or over the counter supplementation, there are certain things that probably should be added into our daily routine nutritionally.  The key is to make sure we are choosing high quality, natural, and highly tested products.  Metagenics makes some of the best on the market which is why I sell their products with fantastic feedback from my clients.  So, what are the big 3, and why should we be taking them?

A High Quality Multivitamin

I eat a very healthy diet which includes lots of fruits, veggies, and whole grains.  And yet I can tell you that it still falls well short of what my body really needs for optimal function.  The fact is that the typical Western American diet is full of empty calories and practically devoid of nutrients.  Refined flours, processed foods, soda, juice, frozen meals, fast food restaurants.  Does this sound familiar?  These are the main culprits of Type II Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease, Cancer, and Obesity.  What does taking a High Quality Multivitamin help with?  Here are a few things…

  • Improved energy
  • Healthy aging
  • Aide in prevention of chronic disease
  • Improved brain function
  • Improved stress reduction
  • An overall feeling of wellness

 

A High Quality Omega 3 DHA/EPA Fish Oil 

Fat is not the enemy folks!  The healthy fats we consume, particularly the Omega 3′s, are greatly essential to overall health.  It is extremely important to choose a fish oil supplement that is of very high quality and tested multiple times for contaminants.  Many of the mass produced fish oil supplements may contain heavy metal toxins, particularly methyl mercury, and can actually make us more toxic.  Metagenics tests all of their fish oils for heavy metals which separates them from so many other companies.  What are some of the benefits of taking a Fish Oil Supplement?  Here are just a few…

  • Can lower triglyceride levels
  • Can lower blood pressure
  • Help to line cell membranes
  • Can Reduce the risk of heart disease
  • Can Reduce the risk of stroke

 

A High Quality Probiotic

I hear all the time from clients and prospective clients things like, ” I eat yogurt all the time.  That’s enough probioitcs, right?”  My answer is normally, “Well, probably not.”  Especially the mass produced non-organic yogurts that are full of sugars, artificial colors and flavors, factory farmed dairy, and poor quality synthetic bacteria strands.  The Western American diet is packed with inflammatory ingredients like GMO processed wheat products, antibiotics, and refined sugars.  In addition, doctors tend to prescribe antibiotics for everything like common colds to flu strands that are not bacterial infections.  If you are sick, ask the doctor to test for a bacterial infection before you take an unnecessary antibiotic. What are some of the benefits of taking a High Quality Probioitc?  Here are just a few…

  • Can reduce gut inflammation (bloating, gas, irregular bowel function)
  • Can greatly increase immune health (upwards of 80% of our immune system lives in the gut) which helps us fight off infections
  • Can reduce the risk of yeast infections in women
  • Creates a healthy balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut
  • Can help in treating children’s digestive disorders
