If you have ever looked at the supplement market and tried to figure out what supplements are good for women’s health, and what supplements to avoid, you are not alone. According to Grand View Research, the global supplement market was valued at 151.9 billion dollars in 2021 and is expected to grow almost 9% year over the next decade. Every day, hundreds of new supplements hit the market. Whether you are looking for general health supplements, or high-performance sports supplements, here are some tips to consider.
If you are active in sports or exercise, a good sports supplement may be just what you need to push yourself to the next level. It’s not just for the muscle heads! When you exercise or play sports, your body needs more than just a normal meal, so consider using a pre-workout powder before-hand to give you an energy and stamina boost. After your activity, you should replenish your body with a post-workout supplement that has BCAAs and electrolytes. If your goal is to build some muscle, finish it off with a protein shake.
Look for supplements based on the ingredients. Don’t base your purchase on the flashiest or prettiest packaging. If you feel that a particular pre-workout or protein isn’t working, try a different one.
A good multivitamin supplement is great for overall health. Look for a multivitamin with several key ingredients. Vitamin D, Folic Acid, and Calcium are all important for your health, and often fall short from a regular diet. When picking your multivitamin, consider the following:
Your age: your needs change depending on your age. Manufactures formulate multivitamins for different age groups so pick the one that is targeted at yours.
Your budget: multivitamins can be expensive, so consider the price as part of an informed decision on which multivitamin to get.
Quality: a reputable organization should have tested and certified the multivitamin. Get what is on the label. Extra unwanted chemicals or additives excluded.
Listen to your body
No matter what supplement you go with, remember to listen to your body. If you are in tune with your body, you’ll know what you need and what you don’t need.
Stay healthy and live fully!
