What are the main nutritional supplements

But if you take a closer look at the properties and effects of magnesium, it will fall like dandruff from your eyes. You will realize that you need magnesium, and you need it urgently. Magnesium has an anti-inflammatory, blood sugar regulating, bone density, antispasmodic, weight regulating and relaxing effect.

Algae as a food supplement

Algae grow in the sea and in freshwater lakes. Seaweed is a fabulous spice and gives dishes their typical flavor. They go well with rice and vegetable dishes from the wok, but also in salads or avocado cream. However, they are not a dietary supplement in the classic sense - such as the freshwater algae Spirulina, Chlorella and the Afa algae.

All three are among the greatest suppliers of chlorophyll of all time and therefore give you the advantages of the green plant pigment already mentioned under 6. In addition, they provide valuable cell components (unsaturated fatty acids, vitamins and proteins) as well as highly effective secondary plant and algae substances.

All of them strengthen the immune system, block cancer, protect against infections, ensure faster regeneration after exercise, make stress levels more bearable and ultimately help with physical detoxification.

Of course, the interesting question is which of the three algae serves which purpose? It is often said that the Afa alga particularly support mental performance, the brain and the nervous system, while chlorella is used for detoxification and spirulina for general vitalization of the entire body.

Basically, however, none of the algae is better or worse than the other, so that you can simply alternate on a quarterly basis.

The individual dietary supplement

Now of course you know that every person has a different constitution, a different diet, a different way of life and thus also different needs than his neighbor or any other person. As a result, not all dietary supplements are equally suitable for everyone. And consequently every person - depending on their current situation - has to decide which food supplements they need right now and which they don't.

While the above nine dietary supplements can be useful for almost everyone in our regions, you can choose the following eight dietary supplements according to your personal needs or simply use them as a cure more often a year:


Would you like to detoxify, take care of your intestines, promote your intestinal flora or even get rid of the hangover as quickly as possible after a long night of partying? Then bentonite, the mineral earth that absorbs toxins and harmonizes the intestinal environment, is very suitable. Drink one or two large glasses of water with every bentonite dose and choose a bentonite brand that is certified as a medical product and therefore meets the highest quality standards.

You can find more information about bentonite here: Bentonite: Effects and side effects

Flea seeds

Your digestion leaves a lot to be desired? Then take a small spoon of psyllium or 1/2 teaspoon of psyllium husks with one or two large glasses of water every morning.

Colon cleansing

Do you prefer the complete preventive care package for your intestines, your intestinal flora and your immune system? Then do a colon cleanse once or twice a year.

You can find out how to do this here: Colon cleansing - The instructions


A deacidification program is carried out over a period of 4 to 12 weeks. The aim is to free the tissue from metabolic end products (waste products). These slags block the supply and disposal of the cells and thus our life force. Deacidification puts the body back in a position to optimally supply each of its cells with all the necessary nutrients and vital substances and to be able to completely drain the cell waste from each individual cell. The cell functions are strengthened and the person regains energy that was long believed to be lost.

Curcumin as a dietary supplement

Curcumin - the active ingredient from turmeric - has anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory effects and strengthens the liver. Curcumin has long been available in capsule form as a dietary supplement. Read more about the exciting properties of curcumin here.

Sulforaphane as a dietary supplement

Sulforaphane is a secondary plant substance that is found in particularly large quantities in broccoli and other cabbage vegetables. The substance has anti-cancer and anti-arthritis properties. Read more about it here: Sulforaphane from broccoli - a natural remedy for cancer

Vitamin B complex as a dietary supplement

In the case of noticeable problems with the skin or nerves, a high-quality vitamin B complex is part of the basic program of every holistic catalog of measures. In particular, if you have gastrointestinal complaints or a strictly vegan diet, we also recommend checking the vitamin B12 level.

Protein powder as a dietary supplement

Do you love high quality proteins? Are you in a stressful phase of life? Would you like to build up muscles? Are you recovering from illness? Is your diet currently particularly low in protein? Then use a vegetable protein powder, such as lupine protein, rice protein, hemp protein, pea protein or a protein mixture.
