The scene is set. It is a Saturday morning and you walk into the pharmacy. You walk down the aisles and eventually land where you were headed all along – the vitamins and supplements aisle. Armed with reinforcement – ‘Google’ – you know that you will be able to find exactly what you are looking for, except you don’t quite know what your body needs. There are so many different supplements and so many varieties it may seem overwhelming. You start “Googling” – ‘what supplement does every adult need?’ and you are hit with thousands of answers. The only problem is, you don’t know where to begin.
I began this “supplements” journey years ago, testing different supplements and seeing which ones helped me the most. In my journey of discovery I found that Omega-3 supplements were absolutely fantastic. They calmed my nerves, helped with concentration and memory and lifted my mood. That was about 15 years ago. I don’t let a day slip without my wonderful Omega-3. But did you know that out there, lies a plethora of supplements you don’t know about that have amazing benefits. The best “hidden” supplements I found were:
Turmeric supplements go hidden because people think they can get all their turmeric benefits just from the spice. Although the spice is powerful, the supplements are much stronger and have more powerful benefits for you. Not only does it prove to be a great inflammatory, but it also improves brain function and lifts your mood should you suffer from the blues. It has also been noted to help with ailments such as arthritis as well as Alzheimer’s Disease. For more on these kind of supplements check out this Research Verified review.
Most people don’t know about Biotin. Biotin belongs to the “B complex vitamins” group. Some people also call it vitamin H. It helps your body to convert food into energy. The more Biotin you ingest, the more beautiful hair, glowing skin and strong nails you will have. It is also very good for the liver. It is found in most hair growth products. It is also said to be good for pregnancy (although you should always consult with a doctor before taking any supplements). Biotin is found in food such as eggs, almonds, cauliflower, cheese, mushrooms, sweet potato, spinach. A word of caution though, biotin can interfere with certain medications, especially if you take medication for seizures, so always consult with your medical expert first.
3. Nitric Oxide
Nitric Oxide is basically responsible for contributing towards building muscle mass and improving your sex life. How? You may ask. Well, when you exercise, your muscles need more oxygen. This oxygen is supplied by the blood. As you exercise hard, the heart pumps harder to keep up in order to supply the muscles with blood. As it does this, the lining in your arteries naturally release nitric oxide into your blood. This then relaxes and widens the vessel wall, which in essence allows more blood to go through. Through this, sexual stimulation is heightened, erections stay for longer and women feel more naturally stimulated. A word of caution though, check with your doctor before starting these supplements, especially if you suffer with any heart problems and never overdose!
So, there you go. Now you know 3 top “hidden” supplements that could really add value to your health. Try them, see if they work for you and enjoy a life of more vigour and better health!
