What Supplements Should You Be Taking Every Day?
Are you confused by all the supplement information out there? It seems like there is a new “magic” pill or powder on the market every day, and it can be confusing to know which ones are essential, and which ones are just hype. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.
Here are the top 7 Baseline Supplements that everyone would benefit from taking daily (and specific supplement recommendations for each):
✅Multivitamin: Vitamins and minerals are key micronutrients required by the body for optimal health and longevity.
✅Vitamin D3: Our bodies need this to modulate our hormones and support our immune system by influencing the production of white blood cells. The more you train, the more you need vitamin D (especially women) because it helps our body regulate testosterone production.
✅Magnesium: A mineral that plays a part in over 300 different reactions in the body and is arguably the most important nutrient for this very reason. Magnesium glycinate is the most absorbable form of magnesium and is not dependent on stomach acidity for absorption.
✅Probiotic: We all need healthy bacteria in our gut to keep our system working properly. The gut is considered our second brain, which is why it is so important to choose foods that keep it healthy and balanced--for our physical and mental well-being.
✅Prebiotic: The good bacteria inside our gut can’t grow without the right foods, and prebiotics feed our good gut buddies to keep them thriving so that the bad bacteria doesn’t take over.
✅Calcium: The king of bone health goes to microcrystalline hydroxyapatite concentrate which is derived from whole bones, typically bovine. This is needed to keep our bones strong and prevent bone loss which happens naturally as we age.
✅EPA/DHA: These are OMEGA3 fatty acids that are essential to our health because they help fight off inflammation, support cardiovascular health, immune health, cognitive health, and support our musculoskeletal system.
