Hello, dear readers of ecocosas, today I will tell you which dietary supplements I take myself and why. Food supplements, such as vitamins or some more specific ones, are increasingly important and in demand.
Whether it is because we do not always have an adequate diet or because we naturally have a deficiency or to treat a disease caused by an imbalance or lack of a hormone or similar in our body, there are many supplements foods that can help solve these problems.
The so-called orthomolecular medicine is based on this, which tries to fill in the gaps and reach our particular physiology, it must be remembered that all human beings have slight differences at the physiological level, well-executed orthomolecular medicine should look for these particularities and outline a treatment with supplements for your solution.
How did I choose my supplements?
The first thing to keep in mind is that not all supplements are the same and we should always buy them from a trusted site and good brand presentations that ensure standardization, supplement content and manufacturing process correct to ensure we get the best results.
I usually buy online from Diet Central because they have a great variety and very good qualities, especially they have the whole line of Solgar products, which is very good value for money.
In my case I complete myself in several areas, first what I call the generals and for my bases they are the Omega 3 and the vitamin C both from the Solgar brand, vitamin C is an excellent antioxidant and by itself is scarce in the diet unless we eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, so it is a good idea to take supplements.
And the Omega 3 Unless we eat fatty fish a few times a week, which isn’t always possible, we should also supplement these, as this will help keep cholesterol and inflammation in our bodies at bay, unfortunately our diet is very unbalanced, because it contains large amounts of Omega 6 and very little Omega 3, but we need a certain balance between these fatty acids, which we obtain with supplementation.
After covering the basics with antioxidants and omega, I move on to the specifics. As of this writing I am a 46 year old male and like all middle aged men I have a mildly enlarged prostate and incipient androgenic alopecia but thanks to the saw palmetto I managed to solve the first one and at least stop the hair loss.
Finally, I use two more that have to do with the cognitive part and physical performance, in this case after trying different supplements what worked best for me is the Mucuna Pruriens which is an extract of a legume that contains levodopa, also known as L-dopa, which is a precursor to dopamine, a fundamental hormone in learning, motivation and general cognitive functions.
And the Creatinewhich is normally found mainly in meat, but the one we buy as a supplement is obtained by chemical synthesis which has the ability to increase the stores of ATP at the muscle level and in our brain, ATP is the energy unit of our cells, and the effects of creatine are increasing muscle performance, reducing muscle fatigue and accelerating recovery processes after intense workouts, but it can also reduce structural damage to brain cells affected and improve mitochondrial health
Creatine is even recommended in cases of Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s and of course in athletes, being a widely studied supplement and with scientific consensus on its effectiveness.
I hope this will serve as a guide and you already know that a good combination of supplements can really change many areas of our life, in my case it solves several problems, I am physically better, my cognitive ability has increased and I I have better prostate values and my hair seems It will still go with me a little, but each case is different and you should seek advice and research the supplements that can help you in your particular case.
A giant hug to all and I read them in the comments
