3 Essential Nutritional Supplements for Your Health

May 20, 2008
Nutritional supplements are an important component to your health whether you are trying to get into shape, lose weight, build muscle, ward off disease, or simply trying to lead a healthier lifestyle. However, the dietary supplement industry is chock full of misleading hype and misinformation, making it quite confusing for the average consumer to find out what supplements are effective and essential. Here, we will summarize some of the basic essential nutritional health supplements that would benefit most people. However, keep in mind that if you have specific needs or goals in mind, you may need to do some additional research to find which supplements you need.

1. Multi-vitamin supplements. This one is pretty well known: most of us grew up taking our "Flinstone's vitamins." However, as we enter adulthood, it seems that many of us forget to take our daily dose of vitamins. A quality multi-vitamin can boost your physical and mental energy, your immune system, and help you ward off sickness and disease. Sure, we can get vitamins from our diets, but with our fast-paced and hectic lifestyles, nearly none of us do.

2. Omega 3 Fish Oil supplements. Fish oil capsules provide us with ever important omega 3 fatty acids, a type of fat that is all too often deficient in our diets. Unless you eat a nearly daily dose of omega 3 rich sea food (and not all sea food is rich in omega 3's), then you need to be taking these supplements. Omega 3 fats are finally understood to be crucial to maintaining good health. Omega 3's have been shown to lower "bad" cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart attack, high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. Omega 3's may also fight inflammation and related disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. Fish oil supplements have even been linked to improved mental acuity and lower risks for certain types of cancer! If you aren't already, start taking these supplements right now!

3. Ginseng. Yes, the ancient Ginseng root. It has been taken in eastern cultures since ancient times, and for good reason. While there is a lot of hype over ginseng today, it is well deserved. Ginseng has been proven to prevent cancer in many lab animals (although not yet in humans). Ginseng can also increase energy and boost libido. These benefits surely make ginseng one of the most important dietary supplements for your health.

These are just 3 of the most important nutritional supplements for your health. Still, there are plenty more dietary supplements that are very effective and useful for your health and nutritional needs. If you are not currently benefiting from these health supplements, what are you waiting for?
