Although there are several health benefits that comes from omega-3, I’d like to discuss a few.

Omega 3 appears to prevent abnormal heartbeats, helps in preventing clogged artery walls, decrease blood clotting, triglycerides (blood fat), and inflammation but helps increase HDL (good cholesterol)

When it comes to exercise, Omega-3 has lots of other benefits for athletic performance. Omega-3 supplements can improve muscle strength and function.

It also reduces muscle damage and soreness, and improve the function of the heart and lungs as well

Whey Protein

What is Whey? Well, Whey is the watery part of milk when separated in the process of making cheese. Whey is a form of a protein and protein has an enormous range of essential amino acids, which are absorbed quickly.

Vitamin D & K

To seek the full potential benefits of vitamin D supplements, it is best to be taken with vitamin k.

  1. I believe I need more protein and lesser carbs as I’m getting into my late 30s. I’ll try to increase protein intake as you suggested and hopefully, manage to shed off some excess weight.

  2. Hey Sonja, just got done reading your article and I thought it was a very good read!

    I’ve taken most of these supplements at one point or another, in fact I’m downing a Protein Shake right now. They’re great for replenishing your body with vital nutrients after a hard workout. Did you know protein also helps quench hunger and keeps you full for longer?

    I’ve also recently learned that Magnesium and Vitamins B, C, and D are all good for people that suffer from Anxiety issues like myself. Oh, and don’t forget the Omega 3!

    Just a few tips from a friendly passerby, all the best!

  3. Good information here. It wasn’t until I decided to drastically cut down on the carbs that I realized just how much of it is in almost everything. Now I try to keep my carbs limited to one or two per day. More doable now that I’m aware of which foods to choose. I use Whey Protein powder in shakes and add it to my Kodiak cakes (pancakes). I can only eat up to 2 pancakes when I do because they are so filling! I also take up to 5-6 supplements daily including CQ10, Flaxseed Oil, Tumeric and Bee Propolis to name a few.

  4. Informative post there. One is not getting young anymore and when we reach the age fifty and beyond we start losing bone mass and density, it’s essential to boost our bodies with the right amount of protein and those minerals that play a role in strengthening our bones and muscles health. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you! I always try and help my mom stay motivated in moving around because she too is of age and I would like for her to be with me as long as she can
