What is the single most important nutritional supplement?
Vitamin B Complex as this group of vitamins are vital to so many systems in our body and work together in synergy.
Sadly it is one of the vitamins which is destroyed in processed foods and we need to digest every day as it is water soluble and cannot be manufactured by the body.
Vital for sooo many of our systems
You can't say which nutritional supplement is the most important. You only need to eat the supplement when you are short of the related element.
Vitamin D is very important to human health. Having Vitamin D deficiency can lead to a wide range of health conditions and impede's the body's immune system from functioning property.
For me personally, it's B complex. I take many vitamins, but this one makes a difference I can feel.
I can't say which one is better. I do believe that supplements are just that -- they provide much needed vitamins, minerals, etc. that your body lacks or needs. It is great to have a Dr. checkup to see what your body's supplements should include. I do take a super green food every day that keeps me balanced in nutrition, probitic aid, mineral supplements and vitamins and it does make a great difference. Eating a variety of healthy, natural, organic foods (and lean meats & fish are better) when possible, proper rest and exercise keeps a person in good overall health.
In this nature, the almighty had created human beings with great care and intelligence and to this most advanced human body made by the god, we cant say which single nutritional supplement is important as in one way or another every vitamins, proteins, calcium, minerals, carbohydrates etc play their important role to keep body healthy. So, the important thing is to keep all these nutritional supplements in the correct blend in our body. Reduction and overproduction of this may result in abnormality.
It's very hard to say which is the most one important supplement we should take. I take a one-a-day vitamin that I hope will suffice.
I do think people might be taking too many vitamins, though. I wrote a Hub about taking too many.
There is no general answer, as, if a person is urgently in need of a particular supplement due to insufficiency or disease, that one is critical.
That said, if a person is in general good health, but not attentive to diet, then a daily vitamin and mineral supplement takes care of the B complex, C, D, and A, as well as key minerals (calcium and iron in particular) is the best choice. These are slightly different products for men and women as women need more iron.
In normal cases, this should be sufficient. In rare cases (including mine, in the past) it was not. I could not absorb the supplement without adding a trace mineral supplement. So, if you are not feeling better, then further research into your own unique situation is necessary.
That would depend on what nutrient your body is lacking at the point you are asking the question. Your body needs multiple nutrients, and if your diet is lacking in a particular one, that is the most important supplement for your needs at that moment. So you could say the most important nutritional supplement changes from person to person, and from day to day. What is YOUR diet lacking? THAT is the most important supplement for you!
And you must consider the fact that the nutrient that none of us can live without for more than a few days is......water.
