•The 6 Essential Supplements for Optimal Health

Posted on

One area of mass confusion in the world of health and fitness is supplements. Anyone can go into there local vitamin store and come out with a shopping bag full of pills promising to build muscle, burn fat and change your life all with one pill. Unfortunately this is a far cry from reality.Here I will tell you what I believe from my research are the 6 essential supplements for optimal health.

Ihave picked these based on my research and analysis of 100’s of clients blood work profiles. We still recommend you get a blood test done and find out what is absolutely right for you but it is a sure bet at least one of these will be on the list.

1. Vitamin D3

This is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies that we see. Nearly every client has had low scores of Vitamin D3 and this has implications for immune health, fat loss, muscle building and nearly every single physiological process in your body.

2. Magnesium

As far as minerals go, Magnesium is the one we find lowered levels of the most. Magnesium is involved in over 300 reactions in the body and has implications for muscle relaxation, sleep, cellular energy and bowel health. One interesting thing about magnesium is that is is hard to overdose on it, you will experience loose bowel movements if you have to much.

3. Multi Vitamin

It is assumed if you eat a varied diet rich in plant foods that you will get all the nutrition you need. Unfortunately due to the depleted nature of our soils this is no longer the case. Taking a high quality multivitamin is a cheap and easy form of nutritional insurance. It will also take care of B Vitamin deficiencies which are quite often and lead to lowered energy.

4. Probiotic

Our intestinal tract is home to trillions of bacteria and the health of these bacteria has a profound effect on our health. Good bacteria strains help us lose weight, reduce heart disease, maintain a strong immune system, reduce anxiety and improve digestion. Always take probiotics at the end of meals to ensure optimal absorption.

5. Zinc

Zinc is another common mineral deficiency. It is needed for immune function, digestive health and optimal hormonal health. A shortage of zinc can effectively stop muscle gains dead in their tracks.

6. Betaine HCl

This is a supplement that is not that common. One of the keys to health is ensuring we have optimal levels of digestive acids so we can break down, absorb and assimilate what we eat. This is one supplement we will strongly recommend waiting to take until you get tested as it can aggravate the stomach strongly in some people.

If you decide to use these 6 Essential Supplements for Optimal Health you will find your energy and vitality soaring and your results in the gym skyrocketing
