When my plump neighbor suddenly started appearing appealing and dashing, a vague sense of jealousy prevailed in me. I already knew that he has started his exercise and diet regimen quite seriously but I was not expecting results within a month for sure. But within a month, he started appearing as young as ever. Also, I found out that he has turned very scrupulous about his office work too and these days he just doesn’t seem to fatigue! What was the secret? My jealousy made me approach him and ask him the secret behind his handsome gait and untiring spirits.
The answer was quite unexpected to me. Firstly obviously he gave apt credit to his changed lifestyle regimen that now included good diet and exercise. But he seemed really enthusiastic to talk about his health supplement. From various sites I had gathered information about how harmful health supplements can be and how we should try to avoid using them. But looking at his demeanor, I felt like reviewing my views. Upon closer interrogation, he revealed that he is not taking any unnatural and synthetic supplement but is on the most natural and healthy diet supplement. This made me study further and I found out certain points about the best health supplements. Here they are:
1) Your health supplements must be 100% natural and prepared with herbs, fruits, roots, seeds, and all natural things.
2) The vitamins and minerals that are there in these health supplements should be in appropriate dosages and they must act favorably upon the body.
3) Your daily health maintenance is an art. Try seeking help from professionals to derive what your dietary requirements are depending upon weight and built, so that there are little chances of going haywire in selecting the right nutritional supplement for you.
4) The supplements you choose must be high in powerful anti-oxidants derived from natural sources like fruits, roots, berries etc. Fruit extracts from power-fruits like amalaki, pomegranate, goji, mangosteen, acai, etc have amazing anti-oxidant properties to keep you healthy and fit. Basically these anti-oxidants help you steer clear of harmful free radicals that damage your system and help rejuvenating the body while protecting it by detoxifying effect.
5) One important point to note here is that having a nutritional supplement in liquid form is better over tablet or pill form. The liquids are absorbed better, put less stress on your gastric system, are assimilated better, and are definitely affordable options. It is said that about 98% liquid is absorbed and only 20-30% of pills contents are absorbed. So, go for liquids!
6) Look for good age-defying formula in your health supplement. Opt for powerful ingredients like MSM, Hesperidin complex, Lutein, Lycopene, Turmeric, CoQ10, and Alpha Lepoic Acid. These ingredients act favorably to keep your skin too health and supple.
7) Your supplement must contain all vitamins (A to H), minerals, trace minerals, including vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin). Remember that for better absorption of vitamin B-complex, you need to have another nutrient like choline bitartrate.
The above mentioned things make it clear that a health supplement should be a powerhouse of essential nutrients. They should help one fight diseases from common cold to cancer and help conquer the effects of stress on the body. Only such supplements can be called as the best health supplements! No need to tell that I followed the footsteps of my neighbor!
