I have often wondered if I am doing everything that I can to ensure optimal health for myself and my family. It certainly is hard enough to make sure we are eating the proper foods every day. In fact, I admit that my family’s diet could be better!
To be certain that we are getting the proper vitamins and nutrients into my body, we take vitamins and supplements. But how do I know which supplements I should be taking, and giving to my family?
That made me wonder….what kind of supplements would an actual doctor give to his own family?
In doing a bit of online research, I found out Dr. Ryan Shelton, of Zenith Labs has two small boys who eat a very healthful diet, but they also take three daily supplements, which you will read about below.
Dr. Shelton’s boys were originally raised in Hawaii so they were always eating delicious tropical fruits, vegetables, fish, and other seafood. They also eat fresh produce, nuts, seeds, beans, legumes, and proteins. When it comes to snacks, Dr. Shelton’s boys enjoy all kinds of healthy foods. They love fruit salad, hummus and carrot sticks, apple slices with nut butters, and even nuts, seeds, and edamame. Wow, I wish my son was not so picky!
Even though the doctor’s boys consume a healthy diet, they still take three daily supplements. One is an omega Fatty acid because research has shown that developing brains require essential fatty acids. They also take a multivitamin-mineral because some of the most common deficiencies in growing children are minerals like iron, magnesium, and zinc. The third supplement they take is probiotics because it’s important to influence healthy gut bacteria in children.
I am thankful to know that even though my 14 year-old son is a very picky eater, at least the supplements I am giving him, (thanks to the advice from Dr. Shelton) will help him to grow and thrive. My goal, however, is to get my son to eat more healthful foods, but I will choose my battles. One step at a time. At least he agrees to take his daily supplements, thankfully.
