Hatch Hacks – Supplements for Optimal Health

by | Sep 30, 2020

When it comes to getting all the nutrients you need, few diets provide adequate amounts of every single vitamin, mineral and antioxidant necessary for optimal health. Even if your diet is so-called “perfect,” many other factors contribute to the absorption of these vital nutrients. Follow along to uncover some of the most beneficial nutriments and supplements that you can implement into your everyday life for healthier lifestyle.

The multivitamin is meant for everyone that minimizes taking handfuls of pills when you get all the necessary nutrients you need in the multivitamin. Multivitamins come in various forms that are supported by specific nutrients and you should read the label before purchasing so that you can find the vitamin most beneficial to you. For example, if your family has a history of eye diseases, then you may want to search for a multivitamin with lutein, a nutrient found in green leafy vegetables that supports your optical neurons to produce healthier eye sight.

One of the more commonly used supplements across the world is fish oil. Fish oil is one of my personal favorites as it has the effect of warding off heart disease and preventing cognitive decline. Omega-3s are found in fish oil which are linked to higher levels of HDL (“good” cholesterol), improved metabolism and better nutrient absorption.

Inflammation is typically the root cause of excess pounds, arthritis, headaches, and heart disease. Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), is well-known to fight and break down inflammation. Daily doses of CoQ10 have been shown to improve many of these conditions.

The list of supplements goes on and on and can be categorized for both men and women to better suit their body’s needs, but remember that supplements do not replace a healthy, balanced diet. Strive to consume a variety of fruits and vegetables, along with whole grains and lean proteins in moderate portions.
