 There are a few nutrients your body absolutely requires on a daily basis in order for it to function optimally. These supplements provide your body with necessary nutrients to keep you strong and immune. In order for your immune system to function properly the body requires certain nutrients and these must be sufficient at all times. The body also needs to maintain its metabolism rate at all times and to do this, it requires sufficient nutrients.


 Types of simple supplements include the following:

  • Vitamin B12: It boosts the immune system and relieves physical and mental stress. B12 can be found in some foods but for the most part, people don’t consume enough to reach their daily requirement. You will therefore need to take Vitamin B12 supplements in order to reach the minimum daily requirements.
  • Vitamin D: It is produced by the sun and for those living in sunny areas, you will have no shortage of this. However, there are those who don’t see a lot of sunlight and that is why these supplements are completely necessary. People living in cold areas are highly recommended to take this supplement.
  •  Calcium: It is necessary to build healthy bones and teeth but many people around the world do not get the amount of Calcium they require on a daily basis. Even though it is readily available in some foods, supplements are very necessary. You can buy these over the counter but make sure to ask the pharmacist or even a medical person about the right one.
  •  Vitamin C: This is needed to stave off infections like colds and flu. Dosing on lots of Vitamin C on a daily basis will ensure that your body has all the protection it needs. In addition to that, do not forget to eat lots of fruits like citrus fruits and vegetables. You can not entirely depend on supplements alone.
  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids: Omegas are absolutely vital as part of any person’s daily nutrient intake. You can get omega 3 from oils that occur naturally in fish. However, as with any nutrients, it is often that people don’t ingest the necessary amount that occurs naturally in food. This is why supplements are necessary.


 There are many different brands on the market today that offer all of the nutrients that we require on a daily basis in affordable supplements. These can take either pill or capsule form and can be used safely no matter what your diet includes. A well balanced lifestyle is possible by using different types of simple supplements.

Tips and comments
