5 Supplements to support your nervous system
We get it, it can get very overwhelming when you are trying to figure out what the best supplements are to take for optimal wellbeing. Luckily for you, we’ve put together a list of our top 5 supplements that are highly recommended to help support your nervous system. But, before we share our top suggestions, here are a few things to look out for and keep in mind when shopping for supplements.
Whilst shopping for supplements, it is imperative that you do research on the brand ahead of purchase. Even though it is helpful to get the advice from the shop assistants, nothing beats doing some research that cannot be swayed by an assistant’s personal opinion.
Once you’ve found a brand or supplement blend that interests you, be sure to visit the brand’s website and read up about their history and how the supplements are formulated. Often, larger pharmaceutical brands and online shopping stores will offer the bare minimum product information which is something to be aware of.
It’s very important that a brand offers ingredient transparency and the quantity of each ingredient. This will not only help you make an informed choice about the supplement, but you could also take that information to your healthcare provider if you’re unsure about dosage.
If the ingredients aren’t listed in quantitative order, we’re giving it a hard pass.
Less = more
Just like the food we eat; it makes sense to use supplements that have as little extra products as possible. Using supplements and natural remedies that contain just what is needed without any bulking agents or other nasties means that you will be getting the best and cleanest product for you.
When shopping around for supplements, be sure to check if there are any fillers or inactive ingredients. Most herbal and vitamin supplements require a couple of inactive ingredients to ensure we can take them in easy dosage forms like capsules, tablets and effervescents. If you start counting more than 3 or 4 inactive ingredients, it may be time to reconsider. If you’re vegan or halaal, then make sure that the capsules are coated in a vegan gel – most often listed as vegicaps, hypromellose or hpmc capsules.
Now that you know what to look out for, here are some of our top-rated supplements to support your nervous system.
