What Supplements Should I Be Taking?

Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, we have seen a dramatic change in our day-to-day lives, and protecting your health and wellbeing is at the forefront for many of us. 

To accompany the dramatic change in our daily lives, not only has the home fitness industry seen record-high sales, but the nutritional supplement industry has seen its highest growth in over two decades, with a 12.1% increase in 2020, as reported by the Nutrition Business Journal

The growth of this industry also brought many shifts and pivots to accommodate our new reality. From the importance of immune support to receiving the right supplements for a healthy night’s sleep, there are several top nutritional trends we’ll cover that will be most beneficial to your health this year.

Immune Health Supplements

During an ongoing pandemic, immune support and the best supplements for your body are undoubtedly the primary focus for consumers. One of the biggest immune system boosters comes from your daily dose of vitamin C. When you lack the proper amount of vitamin C, you increase the risk of becoming sick. Since your body doesn’t naturally produce vitamin C, it is essential to incorporate it into your everyday routine, either by natural consumption or from a concentrated, natural supplement. 

FitFormula's Vitamin C Liposomal is an excellent immune-boosting supplement to get your daily dose of vitamin C in one easy-to-swallow, pleasant tasting liquid form. Liposomal is the best delivery system available with the fastest absorption of vitamin C.

Vitamin D, one of the most popular supplements since the appearance of Covid-19 and a vitamin that plays multiple roles in your body, is an essential immune system-strengthening vitamin that helps reduce the risk of colds and flu. 

Vitamin D is a natural antioxidant that supports the body’s immune systems and helps neutralize free radicals caused by exposure to pollution, poor diet, and sun damage. Low vitamin D levels have been related to an increased risk of disease, infection, and immune-related disorders. Besides boosting your immune system, vitamin D supplements are great to add to your diet if you’re trying to lose weight or prevent heart disease. 

FitFormula’s Vitamin D3 is the perfect, all-natural supplement to boost your immunity and  keep your body’s health protected. Providing a customizable dose to meet your daily recommended IU (international units) intake, vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) is essential to the brain and body’s proper functioning. It helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus, vital in maintaining healthy bones, nails, and teeth, as well as osteoporosis prevention later in life.

Vitamin C, Vitamin D and...Zinc?

It’s true: along with vitamin C and vitamin D, zinc is an essential nutrient for your body that is not only required for numerous processes in your body like DNA and protein synthesis but is also necessary for things such as healing wounds and proper immune function. Zinc, the second most abundant nutrient found in your body, plays countless vital roles. Low levels of zinc have been linked to certain health conditions ranging from chronic fatigue to diabetes. Having a severe zinc deficiency can also lead to a decrease in your body’s immune functions.

Researcher’s studies from a European coronavirus conference in Spain found that hospitalized Covid-19 patients with low zinc tended to fare worse than those with healthier zinc levels in their blood. Due to these concerns, and since the onset of Covid-19, elderberry, vitamin C, and zinc continue to be the leaders in immunity support.

Sleep Supplements

Even though we knew it then, looking back at 2020, it was stressful. . Life-changing events led to increased anxiety and stress throughout all age groups in our society. With the growth rate expected in mental health and brain supplements over the next six years, sleep supplements are on the steady rise due to the quick, natural remedy they provide us in our constant, on-the-go culture. And when searching for an edge to perform your best, sleep supplements and the benefits you receive are just as crucial to your brainpower as your daytime stimulants and enhancers.

FitFormula’s Blueberry Flavored Sleep Formula is an all-natural, fast-acting sleep supplement designed to help people with occasional insomnia relax and gently drift to sleep.
