As the pandemic prolongs, we’ve seen supplement users turn to dietary supplements for various reasons. Majority of users are looking to boost their overall immune system and mental health. The Council for Responsible Nutrition conducted a survey in 2020 which took a deeper look into specific ingredients consumers are taking to support their mental health, sleep, and immunity. CRN’s 2020 survey revealed the top selling ingredients in these categories are: Magnesium, Vitamin C, and Melatonin among others.
Magnesium is a mineral found in the human body, and plays an important role in overall health. Although it’s the 4th most abundant mineral in the body, many people don’t get enough Magnesium in a daily diet. Being deficient in Magnesium can greatly impact cellular processes which help to regulate the body.
Magnesium has a significant impact on stress levels. It’s essential for healthy brain function, and when one doesn’t get enough of it, it can lead to increased levels of stress and strain on the body.
For years Vitamin C has been known to boost the immune system. It is a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections. Vitamin C is also aids in the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the proper functioning of the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. Vitamin C deficiencies can result in impaired immunity and greater susceptibility to infections.
Although widely known as a natural sleep aid, Melatonin also has powerful effects on other areas of your health. Melatonin is a hormone which is naturally produced by the human body and can also help to calm and settle feelings of stress. Your brain produces Melatonin in response to darkness. Therefore, being exposed to light at night can block melatonin production. In addition to improving sleep, melatonin is also involved in managing immune function, blood pressure, eye health, and even reduces symptoms of seasonal depression.
