Should I Take Supplements?

Boost Your Nutrients

When you reach for that bottle of Multivitamins or Vitamin C pills at the supermarket you may wonder, do they work and do I actually need them for good health?

Unfortunately, the answer is not a simple yes or no. It all depends on you, your individual and unique biological needs, stressors, and lifestyles. There is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to supplementation. If only it was that easy! Having said that, there are a plethora of home testing kits that you can buy online which can support you in figuring out your make-up, what your body is craving and your perfect supplement cocktail.

Home Testing

Omnos have blood (and other) tests that will give you the results you need to understand, in depth, which supplements you should take for improved health and wellness. Now, we understand this kind of medical inquiry can cost money, but we’re of the mind that sacrificing a shopping trip for the benefit of your mind, body and soul is totally worth the expense. 

If you’re not ready to take the home testing plunge, you can always talk to your doctor.  It would be a great idea to diarise your symptoms, track how they fluctuate throughout the month and note down how you feel after eating certain foods.  This will allow you to communicate in a really succinct way and hopefully improve your chances of getting the right medical advice.

Don’t Discount what you Eat!

Supplements are there to support a healthy diet and lifestyle, and not to replace all the yummy good stuff. Remember, you can’t "out-exercise" a bad diet, and you can't "out-supplement" one either.  At Willpowders our mantra is For Fat’s Sake and Fat is Fuel.  We understand the gifts that good fats give our body - you may find some useful nutritional advice in our ‘MCT/ Fat blogs’.  In addition, whilst it may seem obvious, the antioxidants, phytochemicals and fibre that fresh fruit and veggies provide cannot be underestimated - just make sure you give them a rinse to cleanse them of unwanted toxins that may still be lurking.  You can’t beat a balanced diet, but we know that sometimes life takes over, you can find yourself simply surviving the trials and tribulations that the world throws at you, and you just need a little bit of supplement saving.

Who Needs Supplements?

Factors like age, gender, genetics, fitness, medications, diet, habits, and even geographic location can have an impact on your nutritional needs. For example, people who eat a vegan diet may benefit from supplementing with B12 because this vitamin is found primarily in animal products. However, if you eat nutrient-dense bioavailable foods like grass-fed beef, organic eggs, and oily fish you probably won’t need additional B12.

Rise & Shine

Sometimes our bodies are inefficient in the process of detoxification which means our livers need an extra boost.  Willpowder’s Rise & Shine includes Vitamin C, B Vitamins, Calcium D-Glucorate, B6, Milk Thistle Extract and NAC, which all give your liver the helping hand it needs.  

It's Personal

As you can see, your vitamin intake will entirely depend on your specific short-term and long-term health goals. We all have different needs, and one vitamin can work amazingly for one person but be detrimental to another. Therefore, we strongly suggest taking advantage of testing to understand your body’s needs.  In the long run, you’ll save money because you won’t be spending it on supermarket supplements that you don’t need, or worse, ones that could be doing more harm than good.

Swiss Bovine Collagen Peptides Powder Pouch

Swiss Bovine Collagen

Women on birth control may benefit from taking additional Vitamin C, E, B Complex and the minerals Magnesium, Selenium, and Zinc as the pill has been found to deplete the body of these key nutrients. On the other hand, women entering their 50s may be in need of bone-strengthening vitamins to protect their joints against Osteoporosis.  Women who are pregnant, or breastfeeding would benefit from vitamins like Folate, Iron and Collagen. Our Swiss Bovine Collagen is the perfect supplement for everyone to weave into their diets, regardless of deficiencies, because it is rich in amino acids, something we all need to survive life.

Pay Attention to Quality

Unfortunately, the supplement industry is largely unregulated, which means the market is full to busting with ineffective products full of fillers and undisclosed ingredients. It’s easy to spend a fortune on vitamins, so if you’re going to take them, opt for quality over quantity. Always check the labels of the supplements that you buy and avoid toxic ingredients such as: Titanium Dioxide;  e-numbers, artificial colours and flavours, and hydrogenated oils.
