The Best Supplements in Your 30s

For both men and women, turning 30 marks a transitional phase in the natural aging process. Some of this can be attributed to lifestyle changes like pregnancy and increased stress from career moves. Changes to the chemical makeup in certain areas of the body also leads to increased needs for specific nutrients. Transformations in muscle mass, bone density and metabolic function are just a few examples of changes in the body that lead to shifts in the urgency of obtaining certain supportive nutrients as people age. Unfortunately, these changing nutritional requirements also increase the likelihood of certain nutritional deficiencies in aging adults.

This risk only intensifies in adults that do not adhere to a well-balanced diet. In fact, even vegetarians and vegans can find themselves deficient in certain nutrients despite the fact that they often avoid unhealthy foods. Fortunately, the nutraceutical industry provides a full range of products that can deliver these nutrients to men and women in their 30s, especially if they are not getting them from dietary sources.

Vitamin D

The human body can actually produce vitamin D on its own but only after it has been exposed to sunlight. This dependency on direct sunlight exposure has even earned vitamin D the popular nickname of “sunshine vitamin”. Unfortunately, being a conditionally essential vitamin also makes vitamin D deficiency fairly common. In fact, roughly 35 percent of adults in the US alone suffer from vitamin D deficiency.

Vitamin D plays a crucial role in supporting cardiovascular health by regulating the accumulation of calcium in the bloodstream. Yet, the most well-known trait of vitamin D is its ability to support healthy bone density by helping the body absorb calcium properly. Without adequate levels of vitamin D, both men and women are often faced with an increased risk of osteoporosis as well as fractures and other severe bone injuries. Calcium is also a very important vitamin for people to take in their 30s, and a calcium deficiency can also lead to a reduction in bone health. However, even adequate intakes of calcium can fail to support healthy bone density in the presence of a vitamin D deficiency.

Supplementing With Vitamin D

ADK from EVEXIAS Health Solutions is a professional grade nutraceutical that has been designed to help the body support optimal bone health by helping to promote enhanced bioavailability (absorbability) of calcium. This product combines vitamins A, D and K: three nutrients that work closely together to help the body absorb calcium and utilize it properly.

Vitamin B Complex

The Vitamin B Complex describes eight nutrients that have been classified as B vitamins: B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folic acid) and B12 (cobalamin). This full complement of vitamins supports a wide range of functions and processes that influence whole body health, including:

  • Converting food into energy
  • Proper cellular function and metabolism
  • Healthy nervous system function
  • Optimal cognitive function and mood
  • DNA production and repair
  • Healthy skin and hair
  • Breaking down fatty acids
  • Healthy cardiovascular function
  • Optimal immune function
  • Healthy metabolic function
  • Healthy fetal brain and spinal development
  • Optimal red blood cell production

Vitamins B9 and B12 are especially beneficial to pregnant women. Both of these B vitamins are known to support the health of both the mother and the fetus during pregnancy. Vitamin B12 is also a vital nutrient for vegetarians and vegans, both of whom face an increased risk of vitamin B12 deficiency.

Supplementing With B Vitamins

The experts at EVEXIAS Health Solutions also offer B Complex: a professional grade nutraceutical that combines all eight B vitamins in a single capsule for full support of optimal whole-body health.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats that have shown a potential to support healthy cardiovascular function. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are the two most common types of omega-3 fatty acids found in nutraceutical products, and they occur naturally in a wide variety of fish that include salmon, mackerel, herring and anchovy. These long-chain fatty acids have long been recognized for their anti-inflammatory properties and their ability to support healthy cognitive, cellular and cardiovascular function.

Another type of omega-3 known as docosapentaenoic acid (DPA) has become increasingly recognized for its anti-inflammatory benefits. This omega-3 is structurally a longer version of EPA. DPA has also gained a reputation for supporting cardiovascular health by improving lipid metabolism.

Supplementing with Omega-3 Fatty Acids

SPM Complex from EVEXIAS Health Solutions contains a proprietary extract of Alaskan cod liver oil known as Bering Select NutraSolve3. This extract not only contains EPA, DHA and DPA, but it also contains pro- resolving mediators as well as vitamins A and D for extra support of optimal cardiovascular function, skin, cognitive function, bone density, mood, immune function, eye development and neurological function.

Iron

Iron is a mineral that the body requires for optimal blood health and function. More specifically, iron is needed to transport oxygen from the lungs to all other parts of the body. It is also classified as an essential mineral because the body cannot produce it.

Iron deficiency anemia is the condition caused by insufficient amounts of iron, and it affects between four and five million Americans every year. Iron deficiency anemia is actually the most prevalent nutritional deficiency worldwide. While Western diets make this condition less common in the US, there are still Americans who find themselves at an increased risk. The first at-risk adult demographic is women who are either pregnant or menstruating. Menstruating can lead to iron deficiency anemia through blood loss, while pregnancy increases a woman’s need for iron.

Another at-risk group is women and men who do not obtain enough dietary iron, despite the fact that many foods in a typical Western diet either contain iron naturally or have been fortified with this critical mineral. The other issue with obtaining iron from dietary sources is that this mineral is lacking in bioavailability. There are two types of iron: heme and non-heme. Heme iron can only be found in animal flesh such as poultry, meat and seafood, which means that vegetarians and vegans cannot obtain it from dietary sources. Non-heme iron can be found in a variety of plant foods, including leafy greens, nuts, seeds, whole grains and legumes. While vegans and vegetarians can obtain non-heme iron, this form is even less bioavailable than heme iron.

Iron deficiency anemia can then lead to a wide range of symptoms and conditions that include:

  • Fatigue
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Irritability
  • Pale skin
  • Shortness of breath
  • Enlarged spleen
  • Sensitivity to cold
  • Lightheadedness
  • Confusion and issues with concentrating
  • Sore or swollen tongue

Supplementing With Iron

Iron Bis-Glycinate from EVEXIAS Health Solutions has been expertly developed to provide the body with a chelated form of iron that has been recognized for enhanced bioavailability. This professional grade nutraceutical product also contains other nutrients for the support of comprehensive wellness, including vitamin C. One of the many benefits that vitamin C provides to the body is assisting in the absorption of iron into the bloodstream.
