(OrganicJar) Just like their parents, kids are taking herbal supplements from fish oil to ginseng, a sign of just how mainstream alternative medicine has become. More than one in nine children and teens try those remedies and other nontraditional options. Their parents’ practices played a big role. Kids were five times more likely to use alternative therapies if a parent or other relative did.
Women are the most likely to use alternative medicine, as are those with advanced college degrees and people who live in the West. Among non-elderly adults, it is used about equally by those with private insurance and those with no health insurance at all.
Here is a list of the supplements (in my opinion) everyone should take. I am not being paid by these company’s. These are the supplements that after hours and in some cases months of research I support. I take more supplements than this, but at a bare minimum I think everyone should supplement there diet with:
1. Multivitamin (I use Alive by Nature’s Way with no iron (for men). These are by far the best multivitamins on the market as they’re made with whole food and not synthetic. Because they’re made from whole food, you take 3 tablets daily. I highly recommend these.)
2. Fish Oil (I use Arctic Cod Liver Oil by Nordic Naturals. This is hands down the most pure fish oil I have come across and it tastes great. I take 2-3 teaspoons a day. I can’t stress how important omega-3 is for your body.)
3. Vitamin D3 (I’m in the middle of testing several brands, but right now I’m using a brand called Solgar Vitamin D3 1000 IU. The best vitamin D3 is made from fish liver oil, they also make a plant based for vegans. You want to make sure you take at least 2000 IU per day to get the benefits.)
4. Vitamin B Complex (I use Complete B-Complex by Rainbow Light. Most of it’s made from whole foods.)
I would love to hear your opinions, other brands people use, or other vitamins you think are extremely essential to take.
