THREE Supplements We Absolutely Need

Food is the best source of vitamins and minerals. With that said, some vitamins cannot be adequately consumed through food.

Vitamin D3 <> Vitamin B12 <> Resveratrol

More than half of us are deficient in Vitamin D3 and B12.

D3 is formed in the skin when we are exposed to sun. Almost every cell in our body has vitamin D receptors which does two remarkable things: (1) slows cell growth/multiplication which proves useful in especially in cancer cells (2) it scans your DNA for error and fixes them. We require 1000 units in a day.

Vitamin B12 is present in most of the milk products (paneer/ cottage cheese), egg and meat. Rarely is it found in plant based food. Which makes us vegetarians/ vegans likely to be deficient. This vitamin is crucial to keep our body nerves working well, forming red blood cells and keeping our DNA healthy. B12 is water soluble, which means you have to consume 2.4mcg regularly since its not stored in the body.

If you are not living in a cave you must have surely heard of this latest antioxidant called Resveratrol. It’s quite a popular contributor to the ‘French Paradox’ of beauty and wine going hand in hand. Red grapes contain this powerful antioxidant which has polyphenols and helps in reducing inflammation in the body by controlling the free radicals.

Our DNA changes with age. How much it changes depends largely on our lifestyle, food intake, exposure to pollution, and stress levels. As we grow old, some of cells stop performing the task they were originally programmed to do. As a result we see white hair, hair loss, wrinkles. Some studies claim that this process can be delayed or slowed or even reversed to an extent by the right food choices and lifestyle change. Antioxidants help!!
