Feeling like your falling short on your New Year’s Resolutions? Not getting to the gym every day as you had planned? Not shedding those pounds that accumulated over the holidays as quickly as you hoped? Fear, not! It is not too late to take a step toward better health. In fact, you can make a huge different in your overall health by taking one simple step– take the right vitamins. If you get the vitamins that you need for your diet, lifestyle and health concerns, you will not only feel better, but you will be taking a big step toward weight loss, fitness, immune health and general well being.
It may be hard to rise in the dark and cold of winter to work out, but it’s easy to take a single pill each morning. If you get the right vitamins you may actually feel more energetic. With that energy comes the inspiration to work out, even if it’s a minimal program at first. You can slowly work your way up to a regular routine. If you replenish your bodies deficiencies with the right nutrients you are likely to be better poised to eat healthfully. Your body may not crave the bad foods as much and you may find it easier to have the discipline and focus to eat what you know is best for your health.
So what are the right nutrients for you? This is the challenge. Knowing what vitamins to take can be a challenge. We do not all need the same things– we have different diets, lifestyle and health concerns. We live in different places and get different amounts of sun light which determines our need for vitamin D or we may or may not eat red meat, helping to determine our iron needs. One person may have fatigue, low energy and muscles aches while another may not. A migraine sufferer may benefit from specific things as may someone with concerns about thinning hair.
Why can’t we all just take vitamins and if we don’t need them, just pee them out? In truth, this is not the case. Taking the wrong vitamins can cause you harm if you do not need them. Doses and exact vitamins are important. It is hard to figure out on your own what to take. There are so many conflicting messages online, in the media and from friends and other sources. What to do?
