Before delving into my a list of supplements, nothing can take the place of a good healthy diet. Hence supplements only “supplement” a diet.
Vitamin D is at the top of the list because it helps so many physiological processes in the body and according to the Journal of Nutrition, more than 40% of men are vitamin D deficient.
It has been shown to lower cardiovascular disease and cancer, and according to one study, men with high levels of vitamin D have lower body fat. Vitamin D also helps with reducing cortisol and parathyroid hormone, which means less body fat storage for you.
Vitamin D helps rebuild the lining of the gut wall. Enterocytes, which are the stem cells that differentiate into these gut cells, are stimulated by vitamin D.
Krill Oil/Fish Oil
Supplementing with fish or krill oil helps up your omega 3 to omega 6 fat ratio. This helps fight inflammation.
