When it comes to supplements, it can be very overwhelming. So at times, it’s just best to focus on the areas of most need. America’s top nutrient deficiencies are Vitamin D and the B Vitamin family.
Vitamin D is one of the best supplements to keep sickness at bay and cancer as well. Vitamin D helps with brain function, immune support, hormone balance, bone structure and much more. Most Americans spend their time indoors and when they go outside they lather themselves with toxic sunscreen that blocks your body from receiving the most Vitamin D possible. Your daily intake of Vitamin D should be 2000-5000 IU a day. It can be increased even more when you are beginning to feel sick.
The next top nutrient deficiency are the B Vitamins. There are 8 different types of B Vitamins:
- Thiamin (B1)
- Riboflavin (B2)
- Niacin (B3)
- Pantothenic acid (B5)
- Pyridoxine (B6)
- Biotin (B7)
- Folic acid (folate or B9)
- Cyanocobalamin (B12)
These groups help support the brain, nervous system, hair, skin, nails, blood cells, metabolism, the use of energy and so much more. The reason why we can become so depleted in B Vitamins is because we don’t store it very well due to over stress, alcohol, unhealthy eating practices, and being sick. Taking a plant-based supplement to help add to your already existing diet is best.
Remember that take a plant-based supplement is best absorbed and assimilated by the body. Some great brands are: Food research, Biotics, Standard Process, MediHerb, Mannatech and Usana.
