5 Must Have Supplements To Start Off The New Year

If you want to improve your health, there are many tangible steps you can take to do so. Eating a healthy diet, getting good sleep and regular exercise are at the forefront of things you can do to help support your body toward optimal health. Another great way to naturally support your body is through supplementation with high-quality supplements. What are the 5 must-have supplements to start off the new year?

N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC)

N-Acetyl-Cysteine is a great supplement for people of all ages. It helps support your liver, the body’s detoxification organ. When you take N-acetyl-cysteine, you are taking the amino acid that is the precursor to the master antioxidant, glutathione. Many people struggle with taking glutathione directly and get much better results from taking NAC. MDPA NAC can also help support your body through respiratory illnesses that are so common in the winter. 


If you’ve felt stressed over the past few months, taking L-Theanine is an excellent way to help your body relax. It is an amino acid that works by slowing down your brain waves, leaving you relaxed without feeling groggy. MDPA Alphawave L-Theanine helps support your nervous system function and works to provide a sense of calm in the body and brain. It may also help improve focus and concentration, reduce irritability, and reduce the side effects of caffeine. 


Taking a multivitamin is an easy way for the body to get the variety of nutrients it needs in one or two pills. Multivitamins contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals, and the body requires various forms each day to function well. For instance, B vitamins can help with energy levels and mood health. Multivitamins generally contain multiple forms of B vitamins, so you don’t have to take numerous pills to receive the benefits. Also, because it is more difficult for your body to process folic acid, look for a multivitamin that contains methyl folate instead of folic acid. Food-based multivitamins can be an excellent choice for people of all ages. 

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is one of the best supplements you can take to support your immune system, but it’s also important to take the right kind and quality. Many of the cheaper vitamin C supplements on the market are derived from genetically modified corn. MDPA Buffered Vitamin C 1,000 is unique in the fact that it is not. It also contains additional mineral compounds, including calcium carbonate, magnesium oxide, potassium bicarbonate, and zinc carbonate. This form of vitamin C is quickly and effectively absorbed by the body. Vitamin C also helps the body detoxify, build tissue, enhance the immune system, and kill pathogens. It helps promote bone and wound healing, healthy eyes and skin, mitigate toxic exposures, and rebuild and repair tissues as well. 


Most people are deficient in magnesium because the soil today is depleted of magnesium. Supplementing with magnesium such as MDPA SuperMag can support your overall health, help your muscles relax, and create a positive impact on your mental health. Many forms of magnesium are available, so choosing one that supports your health goals is important. Magnesium is also available in forms for transdermal applications like magnesium spray or soak, making it easy for everyone to find a magnesium supplement that works well for them.
