The nutrition supplement industry is a multi-billion dollar institution worldwide. It is poorly regulated and full of snake-oil salesmen peddling miracle pills and powders.

Research results are paid for and doctored to make conclusions that show just how magical these tablets are.

The sad truth is, like diets, if there was one that actually did work with little or no effort, everyone would use that one and there wouldn’t be a million different options. But like diets, none of them actually works the way the sellers claim.

So are there any supplements one can rely on to aid in weight loss?

Yes, but they aren’t magical or effort free. Supplements support your body, giving it the nutrients, minerals and enzymes it needs to do what it does best. Supplements also help to repair some of the damage you may have done to yourself over time.

Here are my five top supplement recommendations to help in weight loss:

1.     Pre and Probiotics

These are the little bacteria that need to thrive inside your stomach in order to create the ideal environment for digestion.

We need to digest food well because if we don’t, then we are wasting the nutrients from the foods we eat, and we must eat more to get the same nutrition we could get from less.

There’s a hype around getting pre and probiotics from foods like yoghurt. However, due to the processing these foods are subjected to, this is largely a waste of time and money.

Fermented foods like sauerkraut are good, but who eats that every day? A tablet taken first thing in the morning a while before breakfast is all it takes.

2.     Digestive enzymes

You take these for the same reason as the pre and probiotics, but they are taken with food. Many of the foods we eat have been stripped of the enzymes which partner with our stomach environment to digest food.

Taking digestive enzymes adds those enzymes back into the mix.

3.     Omega 3 fatty acid

This one has been in vogue for a while now, and for good reason.

Our modern diet is way out of balance when it comes to fatty acids. We get a huge amount of Omega 6 but not even close to enough Omega 3.

The best way to get it is from oily fish but that’s expensive and not always readily available. Taking it in capsule form is cheap, easy and highly beneficial. I recommend getting 5 – 10 grams per day.

4.     Multivitamin and Multi-mineral

Taking a multivitamin and multi-mineral supplement is helpful because a good one should fill all of the holes left in your daily diet.

It’s a way of being sure you’ve covered all the bases. Again, cheap and easy.

5.     Greens supplement

The best thing one could possibly eat for health and vitality (if it were possible) is pure sunlight.

The closest we can get is to eat live foods that have soaked up sunlight and generated energy from it – plants. Green plants are the best of the best.

A greens supplement is a highly concentrated and diverse mix of green plants. These will increase energy, vitality and general health. Anything with wheatgrass, barley grass, spirulina etc will do.
