Start Here: The Most Important Supplements for Everyone

If you’re beginning to take supplements and are wondering which ones are right for you, here is a guide to the most important ones for everybody. Supplements ensure your body is functioning at its best. Nutrition Zone has you covered for all your nutritional supplement needs.

 

Multivitamins

Like the name would suggest, multivitamins contain vitamins and minerals that regulate your body’s response to stressors like a compromised immune system, growth spurts, fitness training, or dieting. Nutrition Zone’s online shop features Nutrakey’s “Envie Pineapple Mango” multivitamin which is chock full of antioxidants, amino acids, and digestive enzymes.


Vitamin D

Vitamin D strengthens your bones by absorbing calcium. Not many foods naturally contain vitamin D so it must be supplemented in your diet to benefit from its full effects like exercise performance.

Protein Powder

Protein forms the structure of your cells and is needed to repair and grow your muscle. This process is called protein synthesis. Protein is not only good for blood pressure, maintaining your glucose, and boosting your immune system, but it is also good for burning calories and satiation. Protein keeps you full longer than fat or carbohydrates ever could. Nutrition Zone recommends Body Fuse’s “Lean Protein 4LB Vanilla” which can be ordered on our online shop. It’s formulated to increase protein synthesis and grow lean muscle all while being low-fat and low-carb.

Fish oil

Fatty acids help you recover quickly from strenuous workouts, insufficient sleep, bad diet and other factors that put your body under stress. They balance your hormones leaving you with healthy-looking skin, superior mental health, and an elevated mood. On their own, essential fatty acids are effective but combined with other nutrients, they’re even more effective. When choosing an omega-3 supplement, look for one in free fatty acid form or high in natural triglycerides.

Greens

Green capsules offer nourishment to your body by means of detoxification, alkalization, and oxygenation. Greens contain phytochemicals (the chemicals that protect plants from bacteria) and have been largely linked to protecting people from cancers although more research is needed.

Probiotics

Everyone is talking about gut health and probiotics – and for good reason. It’s the good bacteria your body needs to modulate digestive health. When choosing a probiotic, pay attention to the expiration date and number of “active colony-forming units.” An active colony-forming unit is the number of alive microorganisms in a supplement. Adults should be consuming about 1-10 billion CFUs every day.
