Even if you’re a healthy eater, sometimes you can’t get all the nutrients and minerals your body needs on a daily basis. Supplements serve as a protection for your insides, and add to your body’s overall health, support and stabilty. Not only will you feel better, but you will also see a difference in your appearance as well. Your skin and hair will feel better and look healthier too. Here are some supplements that every woman should add to their daily routine.
Calcium is the component that is found in bones and teeth. Women are four times more susceptible to osteoporosis than men, so getting enough calcium is essential for lifelong bone health. Adding 500 mg of calcium to your daily regimen can keep your bones strong.
Since there are so many women out there who dislike fish, they aren’t getting all the amazing nutrients that fish has to offer. So fish oil is a great supplement to add to your daily regimen. Fish oil contains Omega-3s, which are important for heart health. They also help for joints, reducing inflammation, and helping brain functions. Adding one to two grams of fish oil per day will add the necessary amount of Omega-3 nutrients to your body to keep your heart healthy.
This supplement is especially important during the child-bearing years of a woman’s life, because this supplement is used to help the body create cells. Folate is a “green” supplement, containing many fruit and vegetable ingredients. Taking this supplement will help you to look absolutely beautiful, as it helps your skin and hair heal and always look fabulous. Non-pregnant women should take 400 micr0grams of folate daily. Pregnant women can take up to 800 micrograms (enough to feed the little bun in the oven, too).
These are important to meet the needs of every-day life. Whether you are just running the kids around, going to the gym, or simply walking the dog, you need something natural and healthy (not that double latte) to produce energy to get you through the day. B Complex is also great for your heart and your keeping your hair long and strong. For my vegetarian girls out there, it’s important that you add B12 to your daily regimen. It’s understandable if you get your proteins from beans in quinoa, but B12 has nutrients that humans need to stay healthy that you can’t get anywhere else. Just get the vegetarians capsules!
Remember how we talked about adding calcium? Well Vitamin D helps your body absorb that calcium. Also, we are always warned about staying away from the sun and tanning because of skin cancer. But the sun also gives us that amazing vitamin D. So if you do stay away from the sun as much as possible, adding a Vitamin D supplement is great for you since is prevents against certain diseases and osteoporosis.
After about a month of taking these supplements you will start you notice a difference, and your mind and body will start to feel whole and free. You’ll feel like and look like a whole new you. Ask your doctor before beginning a supplement regimen, especially if you are pregnant.
