Trying out healthy food supplements at 40+

If you have reached 40+ and are still craving for Junk-food, you can safely assume that your health and fitness are in trouble. This is the age where the possibility of diabetes, lung-disorders (if you are a smoker, the possibilities are higher), digestive-system disorders etc are higher than ever before. If you have already started exercising by now, it is the wisest decision you have taken. Now it is time to concentrate on food supplements, which can keep our stamina-levels always on the high. Let us look at some of the supplements that can keep your path to health & vigor clear.

1.     Iron and calcium-supplements. Broccoli and other green-leaf based salads are highly recommended as the best supplements to curb your craving for junk-food at odd times.  You may nicely top it up with onion-slices and mint leaves.

2.     Vitamin-B-12 supplements. An average adult requires 2.4McGms of B-12 everyday. It is highly required for generation of fresh-blood.  Eggs, cheese, milk and sea-food are the ideal-sources of B-12 for you.

3.     Magnesium-Supplements. One of the major causes of heart-illnesses in the American continent today is lack of Magnesium-based supplements. Deficiency of this vital mineral also results in kidney-problems, diabetes and so on. You can either go for Magnesium-based natural pills to make up the deficiency or opt for natural-food supplements. If you are consuming about 100mgms of magnesium everyday, your heart-illnesses probabilities have already dropped by 10%. If you exceed the prescribed-level also, it naturally leads to stomach-disorders, nausea etc.

4.      Creatine-Monohydrate is one of the supplements, which gives immediate energy to your body. Natural grape-juice contains this compound. Take care that the juice is not left for more than one day, lest it should start fermenting.

If you follow this simple path, your experience after 40+ will certainly be encouraging to your own self.
