I take a few different supplements but I think, at least for me, that these are my three main must have supplements to take on a daily basis.
Probiotics are essential to gut health. Your body contains about 100 trillion bacteria — more than 10 times the number of cells you have in your entire body. Probiotics are also essential for optimal digestion of food and absorption of nutrients, and they help your body produce vitamins, absorb minerals and aid in the elimination of toxins. Your gut, brain and primary immune defense are all connected. (Read more on the Mercola website)
Orange Naturals Probiotics for adults is a shelf stable, high potency, multi-species and multi-strain probiotic supplement. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria or live microorganism that work by colonizing the small and large intestines. They inhibit the growth and activity of harmful organisms. Research shows that certain strains of probiotics can be helpful in restoring a healthy gut flora after the use of antibiotics and in diarrhea cases.
- Helps maintain a healthy balance of intestinal flora
- Supports digestive health
- Reduces the risk of antibiotic-associated diarrhea
The sunshine vitamin (vitamin D) gets an extra boost from vitamin K in this formula. Each drop contains 250IU of D3 and 30mcg of Vitamin K2. Both these vitamins will support bone health and will help the body to absorb and hold onto calcium – a mineral so critical for bone strength. This liquid formula is flavoured with a splash of aromatic orange making it a pleasure to take this bone-strengthening supplement.
Let’s face it, if you live in Canada or any of the northern States, you are likely low in vitamin D during the winter months. Did you know that you can get your vitamin D levels tested to be sure? I believe there is a small fee of around $30 for this test but it is worth knowing your vitamin D levels.
Magnesium is used by every cell in the body, from crafting new proteins to rebuilding bones, relaxing muscles and relaxing the mind, and powering every cell action and 350 enzymatic reactions.
Magnesium glycinate is the best kind of magnesium.
The magnesium is bound to the amino acid l-glycine for the best bioavailability for your body. Because it can be absorbed directly through the intestinal walls, magnesium glycinate is absorbed faster and at a higher rate than other forms like magnesium oxide and magnesium citrate. It’s also easy on the bowels, so you can take a break from bathroom breaks. I enjoy the Orange Naturals MagPop. I love that you can just mix this in water and it’s a fizzy refreshing drink.
