Nutritional Supplements: Who Needs Them And For What?

The current state of the world has us all thinking about our health and wellness more than usual. While not a cure, nutritional supplements can be a big help in giving our bodies the boost they need to fight off nasty infections!

Right now, with everyone susceptible to Covid and other illnesses, taking supplements can help us to feel our best. We’ve compiled a list of our recommended nutritional supplements for maximum vitality to kick off the new year!

Vitamin C for a Healthy Immune System 

For those who haven’t contracted Covid or the general flu, supplements that continue to build and maintain a healthy immune system will bode well for everyone in the family – all ages, all lifestyles. Ginseng boosts the immune system and further helps prevent future possibilities of getting flu or the Covid-19 virus. 

If you haven’t caught any illnesses recently, you likely want to keep it that way, so taking supplements that continue to build and maintain a healthy immune system is your best bet. Vitamin C can give your immune system the boost it needs.

Amino Acids for Fighting Off Infections

If you’re currently sick or are recovering from being sick, it’s important to take nutritional supplements that promote healing (besides chocolate, of course) and restore, rebuild and maintain your body’s health and defense.

Amino acids are important in this regard as they not only help the body to fight off infection faster and then recover, but they promote the building of the immune system as well.

Nutritional Supplements For General Health Concerns 

Everyone can benefit from some supplemental assistance, that’s a given. However,  there are a few groups that should strongly consider supplements. 

Pregnant women, young children, the elderly and those suffering from certain medical conditions such as celiac disease, cancer, Crohn’s disease, alcoholism, hypothyroidism and anorexia must, without fail, take nutritional supplements (if approved by your doctor).
