Combining Natural Supplements for a Healthier Life
There are only so many supplements that you can take. Ideally, living a perfect life with a perfectly balanced diet, with a great exercise routine, no stress at all, no exposure to toxins and a perfect amount of sleep would eliminate the need for any supplements whatsoever. That being said, the fantasy world where you can add all of those factors together and keep them going indefinitely just doesn’t exist. That’s one reason why supplements exist, and you can combine a number of them to fight against all of those factors like lack of sleep, inflammation, stress, obesity, digestive tract problems, etc.
Some of the Greats
Turmeric is one of the great substances which can help your body in numerous ways. One of the big ones is that it has a compound in it called curcumin, which has great anti-inflammatory properties, and it also dramatically increases the antioxidant capacity of the body. It also boosts brain-derived neurotrophic factor, which helps brain function and lowers the risk of brain diseases. It helps prevent and treat Alzheimer’s, can be useful for the treatment and prevention of certain types of cancers, has fabulous benefits against depression, and can help delay aging and fights against age-related chronic diseases.
Moringa oleiferais a very nutritious tree whose leaves are rich in protein, vitamin B6, vitamin C, riboflavin, andiron. It is also rich in antioxidants, it helps lower inflammation, can reduce and regulate blood sugar levels, and can lower cholesterol. It can also help protect against arsenic toxicity, which is a problem of contamination in water and rice in many parts of the world.
Ginger is a cousin of Turmeric and has been used for centuries in traditional medicine. It treats nausea, has great anti-inflammatory effects, especially with those with osteoarthritis and can reduce muscle pain and soreness. It also can drastically lower blood sugars and improve heart disease risk factors, which are both great for your body. It can help treat indigestion, including chronic indigestion, lowers cholesterol levels, and can significantly reduce menstrual pain. It also has compounds in it which could potentially treat cancer and be a preventative measure, and it improves brain function and helps to protect against Alzheimer’s. The main ingredient in Ginger, Gingerol, inhibits the growth of many types of bacteria, and also many types of viruses which cause respiratory infections.
Probiotics are basically good bacteria. Taking a probiotic supplement greatly increases the numberof good bacteria in your digestive tract, and helps the good bacteria defeat pathogenic bacteria which become lodged there. Digestive tract health is pretty much linked to everything else in the body, including your mood, so there is no more important area to focus on than this. And, as we are talking about combining supplements, you won’t get very far if the bacteria in your guts aren’t digesting and absorbing what they are supposed to for your body!
Digestive enzymes are great little helpers which speed and ease up the digestion process for the body. While you need to be careful not to take them at the same time as the other supplements, these will help you get way more nutrients out of your food than you would otherwise, ensuring that the necessary resources are available for your body’s processes.
Other supplements are available which you can benefit from, too. For example, switching out your normal salt with sea salt will lead to lots of benefits, as will switching to an organic avocado oil rather than regular vegetable oil. There are a lot of them out there, but make sure you get high quality!
Putting it All Together
All of this might seem like a lot to take, but you can get super powerful doses of these supplements if you do it right. All of them are available in soft gel capforms, where you can take just a couple of small pills a day and get great benefits, as many of them have been combined with other supplements which help for bio-absorption, or to keep them as stable compounds until they pass to the area of the digestive tract where they need to go. For example, Turmeric and Ginger can be found together, as they are very compatible. While some people might not like taking a bunch of pills, these supplements, in a concentrated form, can seriously improve your health on a number of different levels, and all of them without any serious side effects. Of course, when starting any supplement, you should consult a healthcare professional, but treating your body right by providing it with the tools to reap so many health benefits is almost a no-brainer. So get on the road to amazing health and quality of life increases today by combining supplements to raise your body’s health!
