4 Supplements That Are Bad For Your Body & 4 That Are Good

Hey there, viewers! I am a nutrition expert and I am here to spread
awareness. There are many different types of supplements
that are found on the market. Most nutritionists suggest you try them. But not all of those supplements are as useful
as you think they are. Let’s explore it further. In this video, I will explain all the different
types of supplements found in the market and more. Let’s start with the ones that you don’t actually
need. #1 Calcium Supplements For the last few years it has become a trend
to pitch calcium supplements in advertisements. The audience in particular are people ages
40 and above. While the ads may sound very promising, the
products usually don’t justify the hype. Why? Because the calcium supplements don’t get
into the bones as they are supposed to. Instead, you are more likely to get calcium
through natural means. For example, salmon and sardines are some
of the most well-known sources of calcium. Apart from that, you can try green vegetables
like cabbage and broccoli. Dairy products are usually good sources too. If you happen to be lactose intolerant and
can’t handle milk, then opt for almond milk. It is a good alternative, just make sure you
have a source for protein. I am mentioning this mainly because almond
milk doesn’t contain enough protein. You can watch the video, “Is Almond Milk a
Good Alternative to Cow’s Milk?” for more information. Now let’s continue with this video. #2 Iodine Supplements You shouldn’t take Iodine supplements unless
your doctor prescribes it. Mind you, doctors rarely will. Why? Because having too much iodine is often linked
to thyroid problems. This is why I wouldn’t recommend that you
take iodine supplements. There are numerous other alternatives that
you can consume to get iodine. When you are consuming food that has iodine,
always check the content. Different types of seaweed are often decent
sources of iodine. They also have antioxidants and antimicrobial
properties. Apart from that, dairy products also contain
a healthy amount of iodine. If you don’t want dairy products you can try
shrimp. The best part about shrimp is that it is low-calorie,
but at the same time very high protein. Iodized salt is also a good alternative when
it comes to having iodine. #3 Vitamin E Supplements There was a time when taking Vitamin E supplements
wasn’t considered a problem. Then some studies suggested it wasn’t a good
idea. One study in particular made it very clear
that people who took Vitamin E supplements had a higher risk of dying than those who
didn’t. Don’t worry though, there isn’t enough Vitamin
E in multivitamins to cause problems. I would still suggest that you use natural
methods of getting Vitamin E into your body. This is safer and has less complications. Additionally, you need Vitamin E for your
body. Specifically if you are looking for flawless
skin, Vitamin E is your go to nutrient. Try having almonds. Once again, almond milk is a very good option. Spinach is another great example. #4 Vitamin C Supplements There have been debates on this topic. Are Vitamin C supplements really necessary? Well, one study was conducted to see if we
really needed this supplement. It turns out we don’t. Instead, we would recommend that you take
it naturally. These sources include citric fruits like oranges,
lemons, and grapefruits. So next time you feel like having Vitamin
C, try these first. Keep in mind that your body needs Vitamin
C. It increases the production of collagen in your skin, making sure that you don’t easily
get black heads, acne scars or wrinkles. More importantly, it keeps your nerves, muscles
and bones strong. Additionally, Vitamin C boosts the healing
factor of your skin. This doesn’t mean that you will heal very
quickly, but at least you will. In the absence of Vitamin C, healing might
be a very big problem. You can also check out our video, “Vitamin
C Deficiency Symptoms That Should Never Be Ignored.” It will help you understand the problem better. Now that we have spoken about the supplements
we don’t need, time to talk about the ones that we do. #1 Protein Supplements In a study, it was found that protein powder
has a positive effect on resistance and endurance training. Considering this, it wouldn’t be wrong to
say that you can actually opt for this supplement. It is still better than a lot of supplements
we mentioned earlier. This doesn’t mean that there are no food alternatives. There are many natural alternatives to protein
supplements. Some of the most common being diary products,
green vegetables and meat. Specifically, any type of red meat is a good
alternative. Don’t let that steal thunder from protein
supplements though. It is useful, and easier to digest protein
supplements than red meat. You can always weigh your options carefully. #2 Omega 3 Supplements Yes, you can always consume sardines or tuna
to get Omega 3 Fatty acids. Keep in mind, not everyone enjoys the salty
smell of fish. Some people hate the smell so much that they
refuse to go near it. Others find it hard to eat or digest. Omega 3 supplements are a good alternative
for such people. Researchers also agree that omega 3 supplements
help to control the blood pressure. By doing so, it decreases the risks of major
cardiovascular problems in humans. Therefore, this is a good alternative to natural
Omega 3 acids. Omega 3 supplements are also known to boost
calcium in the bones and joints. There you go, if you weren’t convinced already
then this should seal the deal. This doesn’t mean that you should stop eating
tuna or sardines though. If you like them, stick to eating them. Before I continue, I suggest that you try
out our video on the benefits of fish oil. It will help you form a decision on whether
or not you should actually opt for fish supplements. #3 Zinc Supplements You don’t have to be a marathon runner or
swimmer to fall in love with zinc. This mineral is special because it has the
ability to boost your immunity. Many nutrition experts would suggest that
you go for a zinc supplement. There are many different types of food that
are high in zinc. This includes red meat, shellfish and even
dark chocolate. Surprised about the inclusion of dark chocolate? Well don’t be, because 100 grams contains
about 3.3 grams of zinc. Yet none of these foods may be for you. People with different problems may not be
able to eat foods that are high in zinc. This is for several reasons. They would find it rather easy to ingest zinc
supplements. Another interesting thing about zinc is its
ability to fight depression. So the next time you think that you are down
and out, know that zinc has your back. Hmm, come to think of it, this explains why
we feel light after having dark chocolate. It’s the zinc that helps the process. #4 Vitamin D Supplements Think of the things that can give you Vitamin
D. You will get egg yolk, dairy products, fish and cereals. These foods are known as some of the most
common sources. Yet there is another common source, the sun. You get a lot of Vitamin D from that flaming
ball in the sky. So why do we need supplements if we have these
options? Well here are some reasons. Some of us might live in Easter European,
Central Asian and Scandinavain countries where sunlight isn’t as common. Places like Norway go for 6 months without
seeing the sun! This is where supplements come into play. They make sure that your body is getting enough
of this nutrient. Keep in mind that absence of Vitamin D can
cause some problems like pain in your bones, glucose intolerance and even hypertension. So make sure that you have had proper consumption
of this particular nutrient. So are you going to drop any of these supplements? Do you know anyone who takes one of the supplements
we have mentioned? Let us know in the comments below. We would love to hear from you!

  6. I really don't believe that vitamin c supplements. I take them all of the time. And I would rather take them. As well as drinking orange juice. Than eating the actual orange. And I don't believe that at all about zinc. I been a depression sufferer for over 10 years. Not once has zinc ever helped me with my depression. And I had taken it all of the time. So that was nothing more than a complete lie to me.

  7. Lucky I stopped taking vitamin E. Doctors orders on the vitamin D as I have to limit my sun exposure. What about B vitamins and joint collagen? I also take Megafol as prescribed by my doctor. I take vitamin C everyday to help absorb the collagen as I don't believe vitamin c can be stored in the body. Thanks, Bestie!

  8. Whats good !?I used to use that formula body building athletics drink hell it felt like i wanted to beat up someone and actully use to try to pick up fights to beat up ijust wanted troubles thankfully i didnt ,i turned back to my natural eating habits , you never know what in their!!!? 🙄🤨🤔
    Its makes oneself like : what? do you say hello to me ?why you hi me do you know me ? Dont know me idont know you ?! And move away you are taking from my oxygen . EXACTLY .

  9. With respect, I am given to understand from professional nutritionists that dairy products push calcium out of the body and compromises our bones. the best source of calcium are vegetables. of course some people wont want to hear this. fat soluble vitamins get stored in the body. A D E and K. Water soluble vitaimisn B and C have to be consumed daily as they are excreted.

  10. I increased my weight from 70 kg to 100 kg due to protein supplements…yeah, so it is good for those who want to gain mass and increase weight !!

  11. Milk is not a good source of calcium. In fact milk leeches calcium out of the bones.
    Nobody needs protein suplements. Most are consuming far more protein than there body can use.
    You definitely need to do some studies then do another vidio to correct your mistakes.
