Dr. Sinatra’s Supplements
Dietary supplements are products that people incorporate into their diets to get more nutrients and compounds. Often, dietary supplements contain vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, enzymes, probiotics, or antioxidants.
There are several reasons someone may choose to take a supplement. They can be an excellent way to boost your overall mental or physical health. Supplements can also target specific health interests such as heart health, digestive health, joint health, and cognitive health.
Common Supplement Ingredients
Several ingredients are commonly found in supplements, and three of the most common are Omega-3, Chromium, and CoQ10. This section will take a closer look at these three ingredients you might find in your supplements.
This selection will take a closer look at menthol and oxygenated oil, another product used to soothe your aches and pains.
Omega-3 is the name of a family of fatty acids that your body needs but cannot naturally produce. For this reason, it can be beneficial to eat a diet rich in Omega-3s or take supplements with Omega-3.
Chromium is a mineral that forms a compound in the body. It is considered an “essential trace element” because you need a tiny amount of chromium to stay healthy.
Studies suggest that the compound chromium forms can increase the effects of insulin and lower glucose levels. Chromium is also used as a weight-loss aid.
Unlike Omega-3s and chromium, your body can naturally produce CoQ10, a nutrient that acts as an antioxidant. However, evidence suggests that adding more CoQ10 to your diet can be beneficial because it can protect cells from damage and aid your digestive system.
CoQ10 has been used to ease the symptoms of stress, soothe tension, and support relief for muscle discomfort.
