3 must-have supplements for summer

You probably stock up on supplements during the autumn and winter months, as we head into coughs, colds and immunity season. But what about supplements for summer?

Here are our top three supplements to help you support your health and wellbeing, and feel your best all summer long!

Probiotics

Back garden BBQs, ice cream, a cold cocktail or two…mmmm! There are a lot of naughty-but-nice food and drink options over the summer months – and who are we to tell you not to enjoy them?!

Fight the jet lag and support your body’s natural sleep patterns by taking a magnesium supplement.12https://www.nutriadvanced.ie/news/3-reasons-why-magnesium-helps-you-sleep/ As well as aiding sleep, magnesium heals the stomach’s lining, easing any bloating or discomfort, and has a calming effect, to help you breeze through all the extra summer fun!
