Vitamins And Supplements To Take On The Clean Diet

Vitamins And Supplements to Take on the Clean Diet

For those of you who are looking at eating clean you should look at taking vitamins and supplements to assist with the cause. We aren’t getting enough nutrients in our food and along with environmental factors and stress we need to counter these by taking the right vitamins. Here are some essentials and the reason why they are good for us.

1. Fish Oil (Omega 3)

Omega 3 essential fatty acids are so important to us, in fact your brain is made up of around 60% fat. DHA fat is what makes up the majority of your brain matter so without it, your brain doesn’t function properly. Not only does Omega 3 help with the brain, but it also assists with burning fat! Studies have shown that fish oil increases your body’s fat-burning ability by improving the blood flow to muscles – making you an efficient fat burning machine!

2. Vitamin D

Vitamin D assists with the absorption of nutrients including calcium and phosphorus. This vitamin also does wonders for your skin, promoting softer, smoother skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines. If you’re stressed out or tense from work this helps alleviate that along with body aches and pains.

3. Magnesium

If you work out, Magnesium is great for muscle repair. This vitamin also plays a part in our cardiovascular health as well as making bones stronger and assists with absorption of other minerals like calcium and potassium. For us ladies it helps with pre-menstrual cramps and relieves symptoms of menopause.

4. Chromium

If you are a sweet tooth like me you might need a little help with the cravings. Chromium aids with the regulation of insulin levels. New research has shown that chromium can help reduce food intake, suppress hunger levels and minimise food cravings. The great thing about this vitamin is that not only does it suppress your appetite, but it reduces your cravings for high-fat foods!

5. B12

Are you feeling tired and lazy? You could be vitamin B12 deficient. This vitamin is needed to convert carbs into glucose which then turns into energy so this will help you feel more energised and helps with depression and stress. This is a good one for keeping skin, nails and hair healthy too!

6. Zinc

I mainly take Zinc for healthy skin. Zinc helps with new cell growth so it’s essential for healthy and brighter looking skin. Because our insides are all made of cells zinc helps keep our intestines and gut healthy and well maintained. Zinc also helps building your immune cells that protect you from disease so make sure you supplement with zinc especially when you get a cold!

There are many other supplements to assist with eating clean to look into for your personal needs, so do some research on your specific concerns. This is a good place to start and gives you some assistance when you’re not getting what you need from our food sources. These supplements will help you feel better and look better. In conjunction with a clean diet and lifestyle you are on your way to long and healthy life!
