How to support your food nutrient intake with supplementation

Friends today I thought I’d run you through some key nutrients to boost your health and where you’ll find them in food and supplements when you’re out and about.

+ Kicking off with IMMUNE supportive nutrients which we find abundantly in citrus fruits, kiwi, tomato, pineapple, berries, garlic, ginger and leek and if we really want to boost this intake then grabbing a supplement such as @healthycareau Immune Defence combining echinacea, androgaphis, olive leaf and Vitamin C is a wonderful option.

+ Next is MAGNESIUM an important mineral in the body playing a role in hundreds of biochemical pathways, supporting both energy, sleep, exercise, nervous system. You’ll find magnesium richest in food sources such as dark leafy green vegetables, nuts and seeds in particular pepitas, and legumes, especially black beans (Mexican anyone?). It can be tricky to top up our body’s needs for magnesium all through food so a magnesium supplement such as @healthycareau Super Bio Magnesium is a great option to consider.

+ Finally OMEGAS, our family of fatty acids. Our omegas in particular omega 3 is richest in food sources such as fatty fish (salmon, trout, mackerel, herring) and plant foods such as walnuts, flax and chia, but I understand it’s not easy for everyone to get the balance or intake right so if that’s you and you recognise your diet is a tad deficient in these foods then consider supplementation with @healthycareau Omega 3-6-9, which can  make the process a little simpler and easier, yet still charged with high quality ingredients whilst you work on your diet.

Disclaimer:Always read the label. Follow the directions for use. If symptoms persist, talk to your health professional. Vitamin and mineral supplements may only be of assistance if dietary intake is inadequate.
