It’s the New Year. You had too much "fun" and now you need to be healthier. You started by making some "New You"Y resolutions. You may have already broken them. But one thing is for sure: most of us want to look and feel better this year and supplements play a big part in that.
According to an article in Highya, the retail sales of dietary supplements have more than doubled in the last 7 years. In fact, sales are at an all-time high at $36.1 billion and that number is expected to rise. In some cases, dietary supplements or vitamins are prescribed by doctors to assist those who lack specific nutrients or need to heal from a recent illness. In the past few years, however, internal supplements have been introduced not only to enhance the body’s nutrients but also for the purpose of anti-aging.
Vitamins come in all shapes and sizes. Herbal drinks and capsules, multi-vitamin tablets and powders, energy drinks and gels. Some will help specific ailments or improve energy. Some help with weight loss, mood, sleeplessness or muscle mass. But before you decide to take a supplement, it’s wise to research it on a non-commercial website or speak with your doctor. According to the FDA, ingesting too much of a supplement or the mixing of them can have a negative impact on the body. It’s best to take the time to learn about possible interactions before buying.
Fish oils, marine collagen, seawater and algae are powerful and natural ingredients often found in supplements. Designed commonly for joint paint and weight loss, they are highly effective. In the beauty industry they are touted for their anti-aging properties.
For years, Thalgo USA has invested in the careful research of dietary supplements for well-being and anti-aging. Marine Collagen 5000 is a great example. It’s a delicious daily drinkable “shot-size” serving that seems to provide comprehensive wrinkle correction. After using it, the skin seems smoother, more supple, and truly hydrated. With 5,000 mg of easily assimilated marine collagen peptides, this powerful supplement seems to help the body neutralize free radicals which are the main cause of environmental aging and wrinkling.
Food supplements and diet pills are widely popular in the weight loss industry. But before investing, take a look at Healthline.com for a look at the study results, benefits and potential side effects of the most popular options. It’s important to note that natural is always better. Be sure to look at the ingredients. If you can’t pronounce it, don’t buy it. Chemicals used in weight loss pills are never healthy and not worth the few pounds of success you may have. Stick with what nature has provided; plants are the best example. They have countless healing properties and offer a natural metabolism boost if weight loss is what you are after.
Thalgo Activ Detox is a natural and organic way to begin the weight loss process. It’s a detox drink that encourages the elimination of toxins and waste products, seems to regulate the function of the gallbladder, and contains a diuretic that aids in digestion. With stimulating plants like Fennel, Black Radish and Artichoke it’s ideal for those who wish to start a slimming diet or cleanse their body because of dietary excesses or a change of season.
Whether you want to feel better, improve energy, look younger, or lose weight, the natural way is always the best way but the process isn’t always easy. Take the time to read labels, scour the internet and talk to your doctor. Most importantly, be patient. Results don’t happen overnight, but with good habits, and lots of persistence, the new, real you, is around just the corner.
