Fit Point: Supplements
The Fit Point of the Week is similar to Wordless Wednesday, New Friend Friday, etc. We supply a topic, and you write about it! Pretty easy eh? And it’s a free topic you didn’t have to think up! Of course, come back every week for a new topic too!
This week’s topic:
This week’s FitPoint explores the various supplement options for the fit and active lifestyle: with so many vitamins, proteins, fat burners and more on the market, there is often a lot of uncertainty over what the best combination is for your personal activity levels. So fill us in! What supplements do you use, and what are the benefits of each? Do you think supplements are necessary? If you have used various brands or types, what has worked best for you, and why? Where did you find the best supplement advice?
The main supplement that I take are Fish Oils/Omega 3's. I have found that they help reduce my joint and fibromyalgia pain. I'm terrible at taking pills and will often skip them but I come back to them promptly when I'm in pain. During the school year, I have been known to take some Vitamin D as well because I volunteer a lot and kids are just germy. Vitamin D helps fight off all kinds of disease (including cancer) and doesn't get enough credit. I'm not a milk drinker or a fish cooker (I eat it when we go out, but don't like the smell in the house).
Please check out the side bar for advice on Omega 3/fish oils as they had a recent article. I don't remember where I originally learned about them - possibly when my hubby started taking them for heart health. I read an article about Vitamin D within the last year touting its importance and the lack of it contributing to breast cancer. The best way to get it is spend time in the sun, of course, but being a fair skinned/freckled fat lady, I cna't do a ton of that.
