ASFA Reviews: 2020 Trending Supplements

Becoming a nutrition coach or consultant opens the door to a meaningful career in the health and wellness industry. Clients will come to you as a resource for nutrition and overall health in addition to hot topics such as trending supplements. Knowing what’s out there and staying on top of trends in the health and wellness industry can help you stay in high-demand as you are completing your studies in becoming a wellness coach or nutrition consultant. 

Turmeric, also known as curcumin, is one of the trending supplements in the health and fitness fields. Nutritional consultants praise turmeric for its holistic and all natural properties. Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and is used by many athletes to alleviate soreness in the muscles after a challenging workout so they can recover faster. Many older individuals will use turmeric as a natural alternative for treating chronic joint pain associated with arthritis. Turmeric comes in capsules or can be drunk as a hot tea. 

Berberine is another trending supplement making its way into the health and nutrition industry. Berberine is a plant based all-natural compound that has anti-inflammatory properties. It has been linked to promoting healthy bacteria in the digestive tract, similar to the way that probiotics work. Berberine is manufactured in soft gels and can be easily found in many health and wellness stores.

Bone marrow is now commonly found throughout health stores due to its rising popularity. Bone marrow has collagen and glucosamine properties that can help promote healthy skin and healthy joint movements. For individuals who take glucosamine daily for joint health, bone marrow may serve as the next generation of supplement to promote similar benefits. 

Benefits from chia seeds can provide individuals an array of health properties. Chia seeds have anti-oxidant properties and provide iron and fiber. Chia seeds also contain omega-3 fatty acids which have been linked to HDL, or the good cholesterol, promoting personal health.  

There are many different supplements to choose from when you go to any health or wellness store. If you have specific dietary needs or want to add supplements to promote or deter a health condition, always speak with your doctor and a certified dietician before starting something new. Sometimes over- the-counter supplements can influence certain prescription drugs. Being knowledgeable of current health trends and nutritional supplements can help promote your clients' personal health and wellness.
