There is a lot of research that has been done about supplements. Let’s find out what vitamin supplements to take, and what to avoid.
Intramuscular injections of Vitamin D have been shown to be a better, longer lasting way to increase your Vitamin D levels. By administering intramuscularly, your body is able to better maintain a healthy level of Vitamin D compared to taking supplements. Once your Vitamin D levels are where they should be, then a supplement can help maintain that level.
Vitamin C has been shown to be absorbed by your body better as an intramuscular injection, not in tablet form. Everyone knows that Vitamin C can help you kick the common cold faster, but it also helps your skin maintain its elasticity as we age. At Aura Body, we offer Vitamin C injections and can incorporate them into other “boost” options for you based off of your body’s needs.
Calcium in tablet form has been shown to do very little for bone health. If you are wanting to improve bone health, use D3+K2. Studies have shown that the combination of a D3 supplement and K2 helps to build healthy bones and support cardiovascular health. There may be a simple explanation for this. While vitamin D helps support your cardiovascular system by ensuring, in part, that you have appropriate calcium levels in your blood, vitamin K helps direct calcium to the right place. So, while vitamin D alone may help with your calcium absorption, vitamin K is the nutrient that helps your bones use that calcium effectively and helps prevent cardiovascular disease.
Omega 3 has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, high cholesterol, and rheumatoid arthritis. That being said, why wouldn’t you want to take this super supplement. You should, however, be wary of low-quality omega supplements. Omega should always be refrigerated and should not be sold in a clear bottle because it is sensitive to light. So, when you are shopping for supplements, stay away from Omegas that are sitting on the shelf. At Aura Body, we have high-quality Omega supplements just for you.
Stay away from low-quality probiotics. Just like omega supplements, probiotics need to be refrigerated. Make sure you check the bacterial count too. You want a high bacterial count, that is kept refrigerated. Aura body has 50 billion CFU bacterial count in our probiotics and you better believe it is top shelf! There was a study done recently, where they introduced flora from an obese person into a healthy weight person who ate a healthy diet. The study showed that with the introduction of that bad flora, the healthy weight person gained weight. When losing weight, or maintaining your weight, it is important to have a healthy gut full of good bacteria. Probiotics kick out the bad and encourage the good bacteria to thrive.
