Staying Sassy Sunday – Stellar Supplements
Happy Sunday, babes! I hope this finds you ready to conquer the upcoming week! No Sunday Scaries here!
On this installment of Staying Sassy Sunday, I wanted to talk about health supplements. In my mind the goal of a supplement is to maximize health and quality of life. I know with modern advertising it can make it hard to choose a product because there are just SO MANY! We ask questions like: Which one really works? What is the most cost effective, yet still does what it is supposed to? What does that Supplement even do?
These are my top 5 supplements to maximize fitness recovery, overall health, and life longevity.
1. Tumeric and Curcumin
This spice packs a potent punch as far as health benefits go! Used by many, as a natural anti inflammatory, this supplement does some pretty awesome other things too. According to an article from Healthline, Tumeric and Curcumin can improve brain function, and possibly even prevent/treat cancer, just to name a few. The list continues and if you’re interested in reading more, check the article out here at Heathline.
As one of the most abundant proteins present in your body, simply put, collagen is known for being the glue that holds you together. Collagen is part of connective tissues making up certain parts of your body like, tendons, ligaments, skin and muscles. There are many benefits to taking a collagen supplement. In my mind these are the most important: 1. Collagen can improve your overall gut health and 2. Collagen can improve skin health. Here is the full list of benefits at Healthline.
AKA Branched-Chain Amino Acids, these are present in protein – rich foods like eggs, meat, and dairy products. This supplement is great for my fitness gurus out there, because it can decrease muscle soreness, and fatigue from working out. Interested in the entire article, catch it here at Healthline.
A naturally occurring property in your body, and a widely used supplement for joint health, glucosamine has a handful of healthy benefits. Glucosamine is known for reducing inflammation, and being a treatment for Glaucoma. Read the article in it’s entirety at Healthline.
5. Super Greens
This is a supplement to help you reach your daily green vegetable intake, because who eats enough broccoli, for real?! The supplement is meant to boast body immunity, energy levels and body detoxification. Biggest benefit: Prevention of Chronic Disease. Read the full article at Healthline.
