Natural Vitamins and Supplements
While diet should be your primary source of nutrition, here are a few boosters to keep yourself in top shape.
B-vitamin deficiencies are common but serious problems. Therefore, supplementing with B-vitamins can be extremely helpful or even necessary.
- If you are able to find a clinic that administers B-complex injections and are willing to get them, this is my top recommendation.
- A high-quality B-vitamin supplement such as this product by Garden of Life will help you to meet your B-vitamin needs.
Zinc is a trace mineral that is essential for building proteins and DNA and is necessary for proper immune functioning. Zinc deficiencies are actually common, particularly in many vegans, so supplementing with zinc can be beneficial. I recommend this product by Garden of Life.
Consuming a balanced amino acid profile is essential for building hormones and tissues. If you are looking to increase your protein consumption or just need a little extra amino acid boost, this amino acid supplement Puradyme is a superior choice.
Vitamin D deficiency is extremely common. Please keep in mind that getting sufficient sunlight is essential to good health, particularly if you are darker-skinned. If you are prone to sun damage, increase your consumption of chlorophyll and alkaline-forming foods, and decrease your acid load. Acidity in the body is a main cause of sensitivity to the sun. Nonetheless, supplementing with Vitamin D is a great idea. This supplement by NatureWise is a great choice for Vitamin D3.
Vitamin E is a naturally occurring antioxidant compound that is found in fatty foods such as avocados, olives, nuts, and seeds. Ensure that you are consuming a sufficient (but not excessive) amount of high-quality fat.
- If you are Vitamin E deficient, my first recommendation is to supplement your diet with a high-quality olive oil such as this oil by San Giuliano. Consuming the oil of a fatty fruit, nut, or seed is akin to juicing a fruit or vegetable: it concentrates and makes the nutrition more available to the body.
- If you need a more concentrated Vitamin E supplement, this product by Garden of Life is an excellent choice.
