Even though you’re supposed to get all the vitamins and minerals you need by eating a balanced diet, sometimes this isn’t possible without supplements.
Why? Well, nowadays, a lot of food is processed, washed or cleaned before we consume it. This means that we often miss out on multiple nutrients that we used to get from the soil.

In fact, here are 5 supplements to take daily that have various benefits — and can consequently help you on your journey to optimal health.

And if it also contains vitamins B1, B2, B6 and B12, even better!
This is because, collectively, these vitamins can increase your energy levels throughout the day and simultaneously boost your immune system. Win-win.
