While most of us would be able to get the vitamins and minerals we need from food alone, not all of us are able-bodied to produce as much as a full-grown adult would need. Supplements, therefore, are a tool to help these people get that important juice for an erstwhile boost to their system.
We look at 5 of the most popular types of supplements and explain why you need them in your daily life.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Fats are not always the horrendous blobs of fat oil that keeps sticking to your back, butt, thighs and stomach. Good fats such as Omega-3 Fats are important for your health, including maintaining a good brain, eyes, heart, and nerve function.
Ocean Health’s Odourless Omega 3 1000mg are the fish oil capsules you need to get these Omega-3 Fats. No longer will you be puking at the taste of smell fish oil, for this particular capsule is infused with lemon and cased in a vanilla flavour soft gel.
When you’re working hard, you want to make sure you get back on track faster than before. Getting a product for post recovery helps to promote increased muscle recovery and growth. Simple carbs are added because they replenish glycogen and insulin release.
PURE Sports Nutrition’s Blackcurrant Recovery Pouch offers 200g of natural blackcurrant powder that can be mixed into a recovery drink fit for any athlete. Build and repair muscles, while rehydrating and replacing your lost electrolytes after you’ve played as hard as you have.
Glucosamine + Chondroitin
While both of these can be found in the body naturally, the older you get, the less one is able to produce glucosamine in order to produce joint cartilage and connective tissue. Chondroitin helps to curb osteoarthritis and relieve pain, while also able to repair tissue and stop the further joint destruction.
Kordel’s Glucosamin 750 + Chondroitin 120s helps maintain healthy joints, improve mobility and joint lubrication. It is suitable for individuals experiencing joint stiffness. It is also sodium-free and suitable for people on a low-sodium diet.
Multi-vitamins and Minerals
Vitamins are minerals are what’s needed in the body and many of them can be found in certain fruits and vegetables. However, not many products have that and some are enzymes which can only work together with certain vitamins.
Nature’s Farm’s Coenzyme Q-10 100mg + Vitamin E 60s work together to promote Cardiovascular Health and Optimum Vitality. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) helps to the energy-producing units of the cells in the body. Working together with Vitamin E and Selenium, the product helps to improve the body’s protection against free radical damage, promotes a healthy cardiovascular and immune system, and gives you that energy you need to work hard.
