While the best way to get your daily recommended intake of vitamins and minerals is through a healthy and balanced diet, multivitamins can help fill the gap when food sources aren’t enough. Multivitamin supplements may help reduce the risk of certain health conditions as they prevent deficiency of many vitamins and minerals. Studies have examined the benefits of multivitamins in cases of malabsorption related to gastrointestinal conditions, as well as the prevention of cardiovascular and cognitive disease.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 fatty acid supplements, particularly those containing EPA and DHA, have gained popularity in recent years and for good reason: their powerful anti-inflammatory effects. As omega-3s contribute to the pliability and elasticity of cell membranes, they are essential to the health of our brain, blood vessels, skin, and hair. Research has shown benefits of omega-3 fatty acids in the treatment of patients with mild to moderate depression, cardiovascular disease, and various autoimmune and inflammatory conditions. Although most commonly derived from fish oils, you may also find omega-3 supplements derived from krill, squid, or flaxseed. Learn more about fish oil supplements here.
Vitamin D is produced in your skin from exposure to sunlight. However, unless you live in a country that is close to the equator or you spend lots of time outside, it’s difficult for most individuals to produce enough of this vitamin. Supplementing your diet with vitamin D, through fortified foods and dietary supplements, can help promote bone health, regulate hormone production and function, support the immune system, and improve cardiovascular disease risk factors. Learn more about vitamin D supplements here.

Did you know that over two-thirds of a human’s immune system lives in the gut? Although most widely known for their beneficial effects in the gastrointestinal system, probiotic supplements can have a wide range of effects. In addition to being used in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea, research has demonstrated the positive effects of probiotics for immune health and several immune-mediated conditions. Recent research has also linked gut health to mental health status, specifically examining the benefits of probiotics for individuals with depression. Learn more about probiotic supplements here.
