Its no secret that supplements are key components to achieving a healthy lifestyle and better body composition. The body crave all necessary nutritional needs it for goals such as muscle gains, weight loss or even mental focus, which can be difficult to be obtain from just food intake.
Although there are many supplements you can take that will support your goals, it is important to have a daily plan of essentials to take in which you can continue on a long-term basis, as some supplements are not meant to be taking on a long term basis. Three basic food supplements you should try to consume on a daily basis are:
1. Omega 3 Capsules
Omega 3 fatty acids are known as healthy fats which help with cognitive function, joint and bone health. It is also found to have other huge health benefits such as decreasing risk of certain cancers and diabetes.
2. Daily Vitamins (Multivitamins)
Vitamins such as B vitamins, thiamine, Zinc, Magnesium, vitamins A and E are all key nutrients that can be taken together with a good quality multivitamin. They all play huge parts in helping maintain normal energy levels and daily defence against illness.
3. Meal Replacement (Protein Powder)
Tight restrictions and regulations on the food industry, as causes the food we consume goes through a very high processing procedure weather it is by pesticide or heavily fortified with additives, these process not just affect the quality of the food but also affect the nutritional values. Therefore, when certain foods are consumed you don’t get the full benefits or the full number of nutrients required. IE most human body only ever digest and used 18g of protein at any giving time, consuming less or more protein is really damaging to the human body. Its recommended that one consume at least one serving of good quality protein supplement per day to help the body meets that daily healthy quota.
