Dads, like most things in life, come in different shapes and sizes (and age ranges). That being said, they also have their own sets of health-related needs. But regardless of your dad's age, lifestyle or health background, at the end of the day we all just want our dads to be healthy.
So, we sorted through our supplements selection and rated our top four capsules and our top four gummies for the dad, father-figure, or main fella in your life.
For the dad who refuses to eat more fish even though omega-3 fatty acids have been proven to improve heart health. Fish oil is also helpful when it comes to mental clarity, cognition, and memory.
For the dad with poor digestion and whose blood pressure or cholesterol is a little higher than you’d like it to be. Black seed oil has also been shown to help reduce symptoms of asthma and rheumatoid arthritis.
For the active dad looking for a little help maintaining his muscle mass and youthful glow. Collagen levels naturally deplete as a person ages, but collagen supplements have been shown to help for a range of things such as improving exercise performance and muscle mass to helping with skin elasticity and hair strength.
For the dad who’s worried about his heart health (or you’re the worried one) and decreased cellular energy. Coenzyme Q10 is another nutrient that decreases with age, but is necessary for cellular energy and to reverse the damage of oxidative stress (i.e. factors that make you age). So, taking a supplement will help restore those levels in the body and our formula also includes olive oil for maximum absorption.
This is for the dad that works with his hands and might have some arthritis pain in his joints. Turmeric works wonders for inflammation and our customers report that these gummies are easier on the stomach than other turmeric supplements. Our recipe also includes black pepper, which has been shown to increase absorption of turmeric (and other nutrients or antioxidants) within the body.
For the dad who needs a chill pill or chill gummy. Ashwagandha is derived from a root and has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety as well as improving sleep. It is an adaptogen, which means it helps our bodies adapt to new circumstances and make sure our nervous systems remain balanced for lower overall stress levels.
For the dad who needs an attitude adjustment—maybe he’s in a crappy mood, or maybe he just doesn’t have enough vitamin D3 in his diet. Vitamin D3 is essential for many key functions in the body including mood levels, our immune systems, and our metabolisms.
For the dad who is trying to manage his physique, wants a healthier metabolism, and improved digestion/gut health. Apple cider vinegar has transformed in recent years and become much more than a staple used in salad dressings. It has been shown to improve our gut health and digestion by killing harmful bacteria as well as helping regulate blood sugar levels.
The most common causes of fatigue can be traced back to our routines. (This is outside of any larger physical or mental health issues at play, because those vary drastically from person to person.) So, taking a closer look at your daily or weekly habits might shed some light on why you’re feeling so “blah”, especially if you’ve been experiencing low energy for an extended period of time.Read More
