Without a doubt, the right dietary supplements can make a huge difference to your health and wellbeing. However, the good ones may come with a surprisingly hefty price tag. It's understandable that you may want to give them a miss for the sake of your wallet. But it doesn't necessarily mean that you have to put off investing in your health - it's just a case of finding the best deals. Amazon Prime Days may be long gone, but there are still plenty of big discounts available. Act fast though, they may be gone soon!
You can currently save 32% off Sports Research Triple Strength Omega 3 Fish Oil Supplement, now just $23.95. Or, if you live a plant-based lifestyle, the Nature Made Vitamin B12 (often deficient in those following a vegetarian or vegan diet) is down from $16.69 to $8.69 and promises to offer "energy metabolism support".
If you follow a certain diet or have an underlying health condition, it can be difficult to achieve your recommended daily intakes of certain vitamins and minerals from diet alone - this is where supplements come in. They allow you to top-up your intake of certain nutrients, as well as targeting specific areas of concern such as immune, gut or joint health. We've listed some of these recommendations below, as well as our favorite straight vitamins and minerals that you can take if you have a deficit.
We all know vitamins and minerals are important, but what exactly do they do for us? When thinking about which vitamins boost the immune system, a Zinc and vitamin C supplement can give you a helping hand. Vitamin D supplements should be taken in colder climates where there is less sun to support mood and other bodily functions. If you're want to support your gut health, a good probiotic supplement can provide some additional support.
It's always worth speaking to your doctor before you take any new supplement, to make sure it’s safe for you.
