            Most people think about calcium as just the bone-building mineral, but if magnesium is not present, the calcium is not able to do its job. 

            Magnesium is also called a relaxation mineral. It helps to relax muscles. It helps to relieve cramping, especially when you get a lot of cramps when you’re exercising. 

            Magnesium reduces the stress and anxiety in your body. If you’ve had a really bad day, taking an Epsom Salt bath which actually high magnesium is a great way to relax.

            Zinc is probably a special hero nutrient that helps to boost and strengthen it. Zinc is a trace element and nutrient required for a human being to stay healthy. 

            It is present in cells throughout the human body. Zinc does not directly fight soft pathogens instead it helps our natural immune system to win over invading bacteria and viruses. 

            Zinc also plays an important role in wound healing and is essential for proper senses of taste and smell.

           Most people know that fish is high in omega-3s but not all fish. It's very specific to salmon and more specifically even wild-caught salmon.  Omega-3 is also rich in grass-fed beef.

             Eggs are another great source of omega-3 fatty acids. Chia seeds are an excellent source. 

            We know that omega-3s are very important in lowering inflammation. Inflammation is the main cause of almost all of our chronic diseases, like heart disease, diabetes, and even cancer. 

             The omega-3 fatty acid is important that we get it through our food but then also supplement. 

             If you're taking a fish oil supplement or a cod liver oil supplement, you might see on the front of the label where it says a thousand milligrams of fish oil. Not all fish oil is actually omega-3. This one actually says omega-3, 1600 milligrams right. 

            We want to make sure we're getting at least a thousand milligrams of omega-3s a day. 

             I recommend a pill form. You might just have to take more closer to 5 to 6 amount of pills to get the recommended dose a thousand milligrams. 

             If you want to reduce heart disease, even boost brain function and mood, lower your risk for cancers, try adding in omega-3 fatty acids to your diet, and then supplementing it too. 

5. Protein supplement:

            You all know, protein is an amino acid that promotes muscle growth, increases testosterone levels, and increases the body's immunity. And also amino acid is the building of cells. You must take at least 60 to 70grams of protein a day. 

            Because protein consists of many health benefits such as repairing tissue in your body, reduce cravings, reduce appetite, good for your bones and skin, increase muscle mass, lowering your blood pressure, helps to maintain weight loss, increase the strength.

            If you are intaking enough protein in your diet, no need to take any protein supplement. If you don't intake enough protein in a day, compulsory have a protein supplement.
