Every part of the human body has needs that must be met in order to build or maintain good health. The primary needs include regular doses of important vitamins and minerals, consistent omega-3 intake essential fatty acids, and a healthy digestive system. Review this checklist and see if you’re taking the vitamins and supplements you need.
1) Regular, consistent doses of all the vitamins and minerals you need
Good health depends upon a regular intake of a precise balance of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and metabolic nutrients including micronutrients. This is especially important in people that have chronic health conditions, those on hormone replacement therapies or drug therapies that can deplete certain nutrients. Good nutritional support is also essential to support normal detoxification in the human body and prevent the accumulation of toxins that may further interfere with metabolic processes. A consistent intake of required nutrients is best achieved with high-grade nutritional supplements that are commonly recommended by pharmacists and other healthcare professionals.
2) Getting enough “good fats” (omega-3 fatty acids)
Omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) are essential to health, but unfortunately, we don’t produce them in our bodies. The only way to get these “good fats” is through foods (such as cold-water, deep-sea fish) or supplementation. Omega-3s are important for immune system development, digestive support, proper hormone function, healthy brain function, soft and smooth skin, and circulatory health.
3) A healthy digestive system: the core of good health
The core of good digestive health rests on the ability to readily absorb nutrients, while at the same time keeping out unwanted bacteria, yeasts and viruses. This is not possible without a consistent supply of probiotics. What are probiotics? Probiotics are the beneficial bacteria that are part of the normal gut intestinal flora. While most people have heard that probiotics control overgrowth of unhealthy bacteria and yeast in the digestive system and decrease stress on the immune system, recent research shows that Lactobacillus or Bifidobacteria also have the ability to decrease viral infection. This helps decrease the total viral load that the immune system has to control, allowing you to avoid sick days, have more energy and stay healthier.
