Best Vitamins and Supplements You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

It can be hard to know which vitamins and minerals are best suited for you. So many people are health conscious and have very different opinions on what supplements are most effective. Have you ever wondered what vitamins and supplements, aside from basic multi-vitamins, are good but haven’t had the time to do the research? Here is a list of some unusual, yet effective vitamins and supplements you may have never heard of:

Vitamin K2 (MK-7)1: This vitamin binds calcium proteins in the body, thus assisting your body in more effectively using calcium. This is a must for vegans and vegetarians because it is found in high-fat animal proteins. It is most commonly used for:

  • Stimulating Bone health
  • Stimulating Heart health
  • Prevention of calcium deposits in arteries
  • Prevention of liver and prostate cancers

Boswellia Serrata Extract2:  this supplement is not well known but its sister supplement, turmeric is. Boswellia is a tree found in the Middle East and North Africa. This healing property can help with the following:

  • Lowering inflammation and free radical damage
  • Reduces joint and arthritis pain
  • Improves hormone balance
  • Strengthens immune system
  • Prevents autoimmune disorders
  • Speeds up wound healing

Collagen Powder3: Human bodies are made up of 30% collagen, most of which make up connect tissue. Collagen is an amino acid structure found to quickly generate cell growth. Researchers are finding out that collagen is the ‘holy grail’ supplement for anti-aging. As we age, we lose our collagen but this supplement can possibly help slow down the process. Just a couple of scoops a day can greatly assist the body in the following:

  • Builds strong teeth, hair, and nails
  • Improves skin elasticity
  • Improves adrenal function and hormone balance
