Figuring out the very best daily vitamins to take isn’t exactly an easy task.
To be frank, it’s taken several days of debate at the Nutravita HQ to narrow down the selection!
Still, we’re confident that — if you had to choose three vitamins over any others — these should be at the top of your list.
We’re kicking off our supplement priority list with vitamin B12.
The largest (and most complex) vitamin there is, B12 is stored in the muscles and liver. It’s mostly found in animal products, so it can be difficult for people on meat-free diets to get enough.
Here’s a quick quiz question for you:
Is B12 involved in the metabolism of hundreds or thousands of cells in the human body?
Neither! Your body has over 37 trillion cells, and B12 is needed to metabolise every. single. one.
Let’s waste no time here. Benefits of vitamin B12 that have featured in studies include:
Did you know?
Each serving of the Vitamin B12 Vegan Tablets contains:
Vitamin C (otherwise known as L-ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble nutrient.
Unlike many mammals, the human body can’t synthesise vitamin C.
Therefore, it goes without saying that we need a little outside help — either from food or supplementation — to keep our levels healthy.
Some of the most widely-backed benefits of vitamin C are as follows:
Each serving of the Vitamin C 1000mg with Bioflavonoids & Rosehip Tablets contains:
Vitamin D proudly takes its place on our list as the “sunshine vitamin.”
D2 and D3 are the two most vital vitamin D compounds in humans.
D3 (cholecalciferol) is the type of vitamin D that can only be found in animal products, whereas D2 is mostly seen in plants.
At least 1 billion people are thought to be deficient in vitamin D, worldwide.
Though topping up your vitamin D levels all-year-round may well be the best approach, it’s most essential in the winter months, from October to March.
Keen to know what the key benefits of vitamin D are?
You might want to get your notepad out for this!
Each serving of the Vitamin D3 4000IU (100ug) Softgel Capsules contains:
Right then. At this point, we’ve ticked off some of the best vitamins to take daily for health and wellbeing. But what about other nutrients, such as minerals and plant matter?
Three of the most beneficial are comin’ right up!
Magnesium is a chemical element and mineral, rather than a vitamin, as such.
It has a crucial part to play in the synthesis of DNA and RNA.
Furthermore, it helps us produce glutathione — the most powerful antioxidant in the body.
The observed benefits of magnesium include:
Did you know?
Each serving of the Magnesium Citrate Vegan Capsules contains:
As you may know, omega 3 is a type of fatty acid that the body can’t produce on its own.
Like magnesium, omega 3 isn’t a vitamin. However, we can’t argue with the fact that it’s critical for optimal functioning.
Fish is the most well-known source of this fatty acid. Unsurprisingly, fish with higher levels of fat — such as mackerel and salmon — tend to be the most nutritious fish from an omega 3 standpoint.
What are the health benefits of omega 3, then?
Let’s see which areas of wellbeing that scientists have recorded:
Each serving of the Omega 3 2000mg Pure Fish Oil 240 Soft Gels contains:
Native to Southeast Asia, turmeric is uniquely placed, as it’s supported in both alternative and traditional medicine.
It’s categorised as a flowering plant, though many know (and love) it as a spice to mix in curries or stews.
Mind you, the pot and pan staining isn’t so welcome…
Turmeric can leave a bright yellowy-orange trail in its wake that you’ll be trying to scrub away for days!
Finishing up our top six list, let’s run through the benefits of turmeric.
Curcumin is the vital active compound in turmeric. To help the body absorb curcumin better, high-quality turmeric supplements ought to include black pepper. The reason being?
Black pepper is known to boost curcumin absorption by as much as — wait for it — 2000%.
Pretty mind-blowing, that one!
But before we get carried away, why should you consider adding this fragrant spice to your supplement arsenal?
Here’s how it can support the body to stay well:
