(ARA) – Supplements are a part of many people’s daily lives. They contribute to our health, but also leave us with a lot of questions. Dr. Luke Bucci, a certified clinical nutritionist and researcher at Schiff Nutrition, recommends you consider the following:
“A multivitamin should be taken on a daily basis and helps ensure the body gets the vitamins and minerals it needs to stay healthy,” says Bucci.
“Probiotics are bacteria that we can ingest in supplement form that help keep the natural balance within our digestive systems,” says Bucci. When looking for a probiotic supplement, try to find one that has Lactobacillus acidophilus and/or Bifidobacterium bifidus human strains.
3. Omega-3 fatty acids
Krill oil has demonstrated itself as a better source of omega-3 than fish oil. Bucci notes that krill oil contains essential omega-3 fatty acids that are chemically linked together in a more soluble structure. While fish oil supports cardiovascular benefits, krill oil lowers C-Reactive Protein (CRP) and triglycerides better than fish oil. Bucci recommends MegaRed Omega-3 Krill Oil because it has been tested in clinical trials, is smaller and easier to swallow, and does have fishy odor or aftertaste.
