If you’ve visited any pharmacy, you know there are a lot of vitamins and supplements to choose from for improved health. If you are unfamiliar with supplementing your diet naturally, the sheer quantity of options can be daunting. I have developed a list of my Top 5 Natural Health Recommendations for Almost Anyone, and our pharmacy offers an everyday discount when you purchase these items together!
1. MULTIPLE VITAMIN:
Hardly anyone gets enough vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants regularly in their diet, so I always recommend a multiple vita-min. You need nutrition throughout your day, so a multiple vitamin should be taken multiple times a day. Quality is the most important thing, and here at Norland we vouch for the products we carry on our shelves. There are many different options to choose from. Stop by and talk to our supplement specialists who are here to help find the perfect multi for you.
Knowing that the majority of your immune system resides in your gut, keeping your gut healthy is a top priority. For proper digestion and immune health, I recommend everyone take a high quality probiotic daily. When you get sick and take an antibiotic, it not only sweeps away the bad bacteria in your system, but it takes with it the good too. This is why I recommend that anyone prescribed an antibiotic double-up on their probiotic for the duration of the treatment. Be sure to take the probiotic at least two hours apart from your antibiotic for best results.
3. FISH OIL:
Everyone should be supplementing with fish oil. Given the un-healthy nature of Western food choices, supplementing your diet with Omega 3 fatty acid is essential and will help with a range of things—from brain and heart function to eye and joint health.
4. VITAMIN D:
Research has noted the vital importance of Vitamin D. Not only has it been known to help with de-pression and furnish a healthier immune system, but it can also help prevent cancer and heart disease. Unless you spend a significant amount of time outside soaking up vitamin D from the sun, I recommend you get 5000iu in the winter and 2500iu in the summer per day.
5. COENZYME Q10 (COQ10):
My final recommendation is Coenzyme Q10. CoQ10 is a nutrient located in every cell of your body and is often called “the sparkplug of the cell.” As you age, your body produces less and less CoQ10 – resulting in a loss of energy. Many drugs (especially -statins) deplete it as well, often times causing muscle aches and pains. I advise anyone feeling less energetic and anyone taking a -statin drug to supplement with CoQ10 daily.
