Lots of things are naturally a great pair. We are all familiar with peanut butter and jelly, red beans and rice, soup and salad… but what about in the supplement world?
Although it may not be as obvious, there are plenty of nutritional supplements that pair well with others. Today, we are focusing on one that is particularly friendly: omega-3 fatty acids.
Vitamins Who Cozy Up:
Intentionally combining specific vitamins with omega-3 fatty acids can create a synergistic effect, promoting health to the max! For example…
- Vitamin C enhances the absorption of omega-3 and acts as an antioxidant, protecting these fatty acids from oxidative damage.
- B Vitamins, particularly B6 and B12, support the conversion of omega-3 into its active form, aiding in its utilization by the body for various needs like brain function.
- Vitamin D complements omega-3 by supporting bone health and immune function.
- Vitamin K contributes to cardiovascular health by working in tandem with omega-3 to maintain proper function of the blood vessels.
- Take Zinc alongside omega-3 to boost immune function, heart health, and healthy skin.
- Magnesium is crucial for the activation of enzymes involved in fatty acid metabolism.
The antioxidant COQ10 is a heart health superhero when combined with omega-3 given their collaborative cardiovascular support properties. Currently, we are still learning about all the health possibilities associated with COQ10, but current research suggests numerous benefits.
To Sum it Up…
Combining other nutrients with your omega-3 is a great way to get the most bang for your buck. However keep in mind, not every supplement works well with omegas. It is vital to your health to research combining your supplements of choice before starting a new regimen. We recommend always speaking to a physician prior to making any dietary changes.
