Supplements to Support My Health

I used to be fully against taking supplements. It’s not that I felt they were useless. I just wanted to make sure my diet provided what I needed. However, I’ve changed my mind recently. I know there are still gaps in my nutrient intake despite eating healthier than before. In fact, I think what I take now really helps my body maintain a more fully healthful balance.

The first supplement I now take is a polyphenol, resveratrol. I first learned about polyphenols from a video ad on Facebook. It was a bait ad with a mix of “buy this product” and science demonstration about how polyphenols work in the body. I watched as much of it as I could stand and then decided to look up polyphenols later.

I learned a bit about polyphenols, enough to start thinking of them as vital nutrients our bodies can use. It seems they can assist our bodies in combating a variety of chronic conditions and even fight the effects of aging. I was most interested in them taking care of our guts. There’s quite a bit of research out there, but I have linked to some articles at the end of this post.

The second supplement I now take is a vitamin. Actually, I take a men’s multivitamin and a D3 vitamin as well. I researched what vitamins and minerals help with men’s bodies. What I found listed several nutrients, four of which stood out: Zinc, Magnesium, Boron and D. I looked for men’s multivitamin with these four and happily found one from VitaFusion. I also noticed D3 on the shelf and decided that since we live in Oregon, more vitamin D would be good. It seems D3 is the kind that your body makes when you get enough sun.

I feel that much healthier, now that I take these supplements. Along with probiotics and better diet, I think I am as nutrient healthy as I can possibly be.
