It’s a sad fact that Western doctors are trained in treating illness, rather than preventing it. They would rather listen to symptoms and prescribe pills than consider a patient’s lifestyle and help design a way of life that could keep a person healthier overall. They firmly believe that pharmaceutical drugs are the best cure for what ails you, and along with that prevailing  mentality comes the notion that vitamins and food supplements could be potentially ‘unsafe’ as they are ‘unregulated’.

In reality, these two concepts are completely false: first of all, in America, the FDA does indeed regulate supplements, and there has never been a recorded death of someone who has overdosed on food supplements. However, as Dr Mercola reports, even when taken as prescribed, pharmaceutical drugs kill an estimated 106,000 Americans each year,  and that’s using decades-old data. Today more people use more drugs, so the death toll is likely to be far higher.

The reality of modern living often means people are too rushed to cook for themselves. This, combined with the fact that industrial farming depletes many of the nutrients that used to be found in soil and results in food with fewer vitamins, enzymes and minerals, means  that most of us are deficient in some kinds of nutrients and need to take supplements to correct this.

For example, vegans are often low in vitamins B12 and iron (see more info below), and most people in the northern hemisphere lack vitamin D because we’re not out in the sun enough to allow its rays to trigger the vitamin in our system naturally. As we get older, we may lose the ability to absorb vitamins in the gut, and once again, supplements can help.

Of course,  the best idea is always to eat your vitamins and minerals in the most natural, organic food available, but if this isn’t possible or practical, there are certainly alternatives available that can keep you healthy, energetic and can even slow down the signs of ageing.

Here, we’ve selected our Top 20 Health & Beauty Supplements to keep you looking and feeling your best.

1.  B Vitamins

Use  for: Vegan diets, hair, nail skin, nerve and overall health.

A lot of people think that by going vegan you automatically become deficient in B12, but it’s not exactly true. Anyone can be deficient in B12 whether they eat meat or follow a vegan lifestyle. B12 is a vitamin typically found in very specific foods – meat is the main source of B12 – but this vitamin used to be abundant in vegetables before industrial farming, when soil was richer, and today it  can be still found in some organic vegetables that have grown in rich soils. Oddly enough, B12 can also be produced in the colon; you either produce it naturally or you don’t. Whilst it can take years for signs of a B12 deficiency to show, the side effects are pretty horrible and can  include nerve damage, heart disease and  complications with pregnancies.

Luckily, it’s easy to get B12 into your diet. Some cereals and plant based ‘milks’ are fortified with it, but vegans often choose to cook with  nutritional yeast, a cheesy tasting replacement for dairy, which comes with added B12.  Of course then, there are supplements, and it’s always a good idea to take a multiple B vitamin that includes B6, too.

2. MultiVitality Daily Vitamins  

Use  for: Overall  health for those who shun meat and other animal products in their diets.

It’s a fact that the exclusion of any food group from the diet can increase the risk of nutritional deficiencies, but vegans, never fear: MultiVitality for Vegetarians is a unique multivitamin formulation that has been developed by expert nutritionists to provide vegetarians and vegans with the ideal nutritional ‘safety net’. It contains  100% NRV of iron and vitamin B12, which is normally attained in the diet through the consumption of red meat, and this is included alongside 22  other important vitamins and minerals that help support overall health.

3.  Chlorella & Spirulina  Powders

Use  for: Protein, minerals, overall health

You probably already know about the HUGE benefits of both chlorella and spirulina: they’re both forms of algae and are both such great sources of protein as well as providing the body with a wide range of minerals and enzymes. Spirulina is a microscopic freshwater plant that stores a lot of valuable nutrients with its weight for weight basis being known as the most nutritious food to humankind. Chlorella is also a microscopic freshwater plant that contains more chlorophyll than any other plant, which helps to both cleanse and detoxify the body. They don’t taste amazing, so a lot of people choose to either add powdered forms of these superfoods into their morning juices and smoothies – all you need each day is a teaspoon full for a whole lot of goodness.

4. Clean and Lean Body Brilliance  

Use  for: Overall health

It’s official: smoothies are now a huge ‘thing’. Most of us know how to make a killer one by now: a handful of spinach, some coconut water or almond milk, and an all-natural vegan protein and fibre powder like this one,  made up from super greens, minerals, energising herbs, fruit and veggies. Who wouldn’t want to try something that has been dubbed the ‘supermodels secret weapon’?  The antioxidant ingredients protect the skin and organs while the protein builds muscle, and the fibre ‘cleans you out.’ High doses of green tea extracts boost metabolism. All good, and tasty too!

5.  Lumity Anti-Ageing Capsules

Use  for: Cell renewal, hormonal balance

Sara Palmer Hussy, a Cambridge University scientist and ageing expert, is the genius behind this product. Sarah worked hard to create a holistic scientific breakthrough by creating the first supplement on the market that  works to  target the nine processes of ageing simultaneously, all whilst boosting the health of our cells to give us a boost of energy but leave us also with radiant, glowing skin and a notably improved sleep. Working in perfect synch with our body’s natural cycles, Lumity supports your cells 24/7 through a two-step process which includes taking three soft-gel supplements in the morning and then three again in the evening. The morning Lumity capsule works to fire up the energy centres of our cells, giving us a whole new lease of vitality and energy. These morning vitamins, minerals and other ingredients  work to boost the collagen and elastic formation in our skin, while the night capsule boosts  all the good work the morning capsule has done. Unique amino acids naturally help to stimulate the release of the human growth hormone, which is important for building muscle, keeping tissue and bone density healthy.

6.  Pure Mangosteen

Use for: Skin conditions, reducing inflammation

Some of you may have never heard of mangosteen and that’s probably because it’s mainly available to those living in countries such as China, Indonesia and Thailand. I was lucky enough to try it when I visited Hong Kong last year and it’s such a beautiful fruit. But not only does it taste great, it’s been hailed as one of the planet’s most powerful superfoods, and carries antioxidant benefits, helps arthritis, acid dyspepsia, moderate asthma and even eczema. And if you’re prone to breakouts mangosteen can also help improve the symptoms of acne. So if you’re living in one of those countries that sadly doesn’t have access to this wonderful fruit but still want to benefit from the goodness you can take it daily in a supplement form.

7. Odorless Garlic Pills

Use for: Heart protection, immunity boosting

Garlic is a traditional food and a staple component of the Mediterranean diet that’s known to have many health benefits, including detoxing the blood, boosting immunity and protecting the heart. Unfortunately, if you eat plenty of this healthful bulb, you may not have many friends left thanks to its pungent smell. Fortunately, there are plenty of capsules on the market that use a cold extraction process which allows for the preservation of the active constituents and nutritional values of the garlic, whilst  reducing odours.

8.  MSM

Use for: Anti-inflammation, overall joint and cellular health

MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is an organic sulfur compound that’s naturally derived during the earth’s rain cycle.   Sulfur is present in many natural unprocessed foods, but it’s quickly lost during the cooking process, but it’s a good thing to replace in your diet. There are plenty of health benefits, including improving your skin’s health, joint and muscle flexibility, overall detoxification, strengthening hair and nails, increasing energy and above all, it’s a  powerful anti-inflammatory. This is important for many reasons: for example, excess weight on the body is actually inflammation.   The cells of the body are chronically inflamed and retaining the byproducts of metabolic processes.   Sulfur needs to be present In order for these toxins and wastes to be removed from the body, so MSM can help with weight loss, too. In short, it’s the perfect supplement for everyone!

9.  Beauty & The Green Coffee Bean

Use for: Fat burning, cellular health

Most of us know the health deal when it comes to drinking green tea. It’s a natural energy stimulant, it promotes fat burning and weight loss and it’s even been proven to lower the risks of developing  Alzheimer’s and  Parkinson’s. That being said, green tea isn’t a flavour everyone loves. I’ve never been a massive tea drinker, and drink green tea purely for the health benefits as opposed to my enjoyment of the taste. I do, however, like matcha green tea, but it’s pretty expensive and impractical to make. Luckily,  Inner Me’s Beauty & the Green Coffee bean combines both matcha and the green coffee bean with garcinia cambogia, a tropical fruit, to create a supplement  that will protect your cellular health, leave you feeling energised and may even help burn off flab.  Just take one of these daily with a glass of water with a meal and let the green tea work its magic!

10.  Vitamin D3 Supplements  

Use for: Preventing cancer, lifting mood, bone health

Known as the ‘sunshine vitamin’, Vitamin D3 is normally synthesised in our bodies when the sun hits our skin, but in the winter months, we often lack it, and need a D3 supplement. Low levels of Vitamin D are associated with depression, lower calcium and even cancer, so if you take just one supplement in winter, this should seriously be it!  Vitamin K should be added to your supp, as it helps you to absorb the D and works with your body to better to synthesise it (oh, and by the way – you can’t overdose on this, so even if the sun comes out on a day you’ve popped your pill, you’re good!)

11. Amrita Easy Detox

Use for:  Detoxing the body

Detoxing is often associated with fasting. Or, starving, as I like to call it. But not so with this Easy Detox from Thailand’s famous Amrita resort. On the contrary! You can eat plenty of fresh fruit, seeds, oatmeal, nuts, wild rice, and veggies, and sip on rich, creamy smoothies while you do this detox – just add the powders to your shakes or smoothies twice a day. The results will be higher energy levels, clearer skin, a more agile mind, and of course, you’ll be toxin-free, thanks to the ingredients of the Amrita Easy Detox, which include plant-derived cholesterol controlling spices, micronutrients, anti-oxidants and circulation boosters. Not sure you need a detox? Take their test to find out!

12.  Apple Cider Vinegar Supplements

Use  for: Digestive health

Apple cider vinegar is one of those kitchen staples than can be used for a multitude of different things. From adding it to salad dressings, using it as a facial toner to using it as a digestive cleanser, its benefits are just as great. When looking to buy apple cider vinegar it’s important to get it with the ‘mother’ still in it; these are the murky strands you’ll find floating through the liquid which are full of proteins, enzymes and friendly bacteria that is beneficial to our body. As well as containing a small amount of potassium, ACV also carries some amino acids and antioxidants.

It’s pretty easy to introduce ACV into your diet. Consume it in the morning with some warm water and lemon, or mix it up with lemon and olive oil for a quick and easy salad dressing. But if you’re not too keen on eating ACV, you can just take it in supplement form.

13.  Super Green Combo  

Use  for: Detoxing, liver and overall health

Synergy have combined nature’s most nutrient dense green superfoods into this affordable supplement tablet, which contains spirulina, chlorella, barley grass and wheatgrass. These four foods are great for the body, but not to everyone’s palette. So if you find the powdered forms too much, these supplements are a super great way of introducing them to your diet, and really affordable with them all being combined into one handy tablet. Barley grass and wheatgrass are both green plants, also high in chlorophyll as well as fibre, and a range of important nutrients, and the same can be said for spirulina and chlorella. They’re all high alkalising green vegetables that can help our body to counter out overly acidic diets, which are so common in today’s world of processed foods.

14.  Acai  Berry Supplement

Use for: Heart protection, antioxidant, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol

Named by Oprah as the new ‘wonder supplement’, acai  has gained a lot of attention over the past few years, and rightly so! Acai berry holds a ton of health benefits and this superfood has been claimed to be able to prolong life, improve both vision and quality of sleep, help in weight loss, diabetes prevention, the effects of ageing and it can even cure warts (who knew?).

Whilst fresh acai berries are hard to come by outside of their native Brazil, you can choose the powdered form and add it to smoothie bowls and juices, or you can just take a supplement. Whilst most berries contain antioxidants, acai are thought to have more than your average strawberries, raspberries and even blueberries! Acai also has the  fatty acids omegas 3 and 6, and so experts have claimed acai to be an essential  part of good health and a prevention against conditions such as high blood pressure and cholesterol.

20.  Cranberry Supplement

Use for: Bladder and urinary tract health

Hands up if at one point you’ve had a bladder infection? If you  have, you’ll know they’re the most ghastly, unbearable things to go through. But some of us are unfortunately prone to cystitis or urinary infections, meaning we have to battle these continuously. If you’re one of the many women who need to keep bladder infections at bay, try  taking this cranberry supplement created by Terra Nova to specifically help us to maintain a healthy urinary tract. Studies have shown that taking cranberry in tablet form can help reduce the risk of cystitis as it works to stop the bacteria from sticking to the walls of the urethra, which is what gives us that niggling nastiness of cystitis. It’s always good to increase your intake of water to help  to both  flush out the infection and  dilute your urine (seriously, when it’s not diluted it’s like peeing out glass!). Cranberries are also high in vitamin C, and research has shown that cranberries hold a high concentration of antioxidant phenols, which help to fight nasty bacteria. Be gone, cystitus!

For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

    The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

    We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.
