10 Supplements You Need to Try in 2022
In today's post we're going to look at 10 Supplements you should try in 2022. Even though I work in the supplement industry and tend to get endless amounts of supplement samples to try, I'm still always surprised when I discover a new supplement that changes my life for the better. One such supplement I discovered last year based on the recommendation from a coworker is Psyllium Husk Fiber, this stuff changed my life and is now one of my favorite supplements. While I'm sure many of you take Creatine, Pre-Workouts and Protein Powders, in this post I wanted to introduce you to some new supplements you may want to consider checking out in 2022. Some of these recommendations are going to be product specific, where as others are just encouraging you to try a new category of supplements, ie something like a Psyllium Husk. So without further adue let's hop on into this...
My first suggestion is going to be Psyllium Husk Fiber. While I do like Yerba Prima, this one isn't really brand specific, Psyllium Husk is Psyllium Husk so whether you get Yerba Prima, Now Foods, or another brand it doesn't really matter. Psyllium Husk is incredibly cost effective, it's been shown to help reduce cholesterol levels, and it supports improved digestion. In lamens terms, if you often feel bloated taking Psyllium Husk should take care of that. And while this probably ventures into the category of TMI ie Too Much Information, let me tell you about ghost poops. Psyllium Husk will have you dropping no wipe poops and will improve your regularity. If there's one supplement that I can say made a noticeable difference in my quality of life and how I feel day to day it's Psyllium Husk, and I'd highly recommend trying it in 2022. Pysllium Husk can be a bit grainy or have somewhat of a saw dust like consistency so I mix mine with my greens in the morning, which brings us to my second supplement you have to try in 2022, Glaxon Supergreens!
My 2nd recommendation for supplements you have to try in 2022 is Glaxon Supergreens. While it's best to get your greens and nutrition from real whole foods, the reality is most of us do not eat enough greens and that's where Glaxon Supergreens comes in. If you've tried greens in the past and found the taste to be "rough", I'd highly recommend giving this one a try. Gaxon Supergreens is one of the tastiest Greens supplements I've ever tried with the Dinosaur Fruit flavor being my personal favorite followed by Burstberry Ice Tea and Orchard Ice Tea. Nobody seems to care for the Lemon Ice Tea so I'd suggest avoiding that one but the rest are delicious. Supergreens contains a Greens Blend of Alfalfa, Wheatgrass and other greens, a Betta Berries Blend of Berries like Goji, Strawberry, Cranberry and others, and my favorite part of this supplement the Supershroom Organic Mushroom Blend. In addition to this Supergreens also contains Ashwagandha and Plant Digestive Enzymes as wel. If you're looking for a tasty supplement that you can add to your morning routine that will dramatically improve your overall health give Glaxon Supergreens a try.
Tongkat Ali, in my opinion, is a supplement every guy out there should be taking daily. We're constantly hearing about falling testosterone levels in men today, and Tongkat Ali is the supplement that aims to fix that. If you follow guys like Joe Rogan or Andrew Huberman, they've been talking a lot about Tongkat Ali lately and it's ability to boost natural testosterone levels by 300-400 points. While many testosterone booster supplements contain ingredients like Tribulus and Fenegreek, Tongkat Ali is the one ingredient which is actually clinically proven to help boost test levels. In addition to boosting testosterone levels Tongkat Ali helps improve body compisition and may help relieve stress. I've been taking Tongkat Ali for the past year or so and can say since I began taking I feel my energy levels have improved and I have more strength in the gym. While I began taking Force Factor Tongkat Ali, I've since switched over to Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Tongkat Ali due to the premium form of Tongkat they use ie TK100, as well as because the brand has their patented Cyclosome Delivery to improve absorption. If you're a guy looking for better energy levels, more strength, higher libido and higher testosterone levels, I'd encourage you to checkout Tongkat Ali here in 2022.
Ashwagandha is a supplement I discovered a couple years back. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen that has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine and has recently seen a big uptick in popularity due to it's ability to help those who take it deal with stres and anxiety, something we all have had a lot of over the past two years. While Ashwagandha is best known for it's ability to help you deal with stress and anxiety it's also been shown to improve athletic performance, improve fertility, and in studies it's been shown to boost testosterone levels by as much as 100 points making it a great option to stack with Tongkat Ali. While there's a lot of great brands of Ashwagandha out there, I personally like the Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Ashwagandha due to the dosage and the fact they use 3 premium patented versions of Ashwagandha including KSM66 Ashwagandha, Sensoril Ashwagandha, and Ashwapure Ashwagandha. Whether you're someone who struggles with stress and anxiety or are just looking for some help winding down and falling asleep at the end of the day I'd highly recommend giving Ashwagandha a try.
Okay, so while I tried to keep this list pretty "Mainstream" ie supplements for everyone including those new to supplements, I couldn't help but to mention Turkesterone. Turkesterone is a supplement which has been around for years in muscle building blends, but has recently gotten the spotlight as a stand alone muscle building supplement. If you're looking to put on lean muscle here in 2022 you absolutely have to try Turkesterone. This ingredient was made popular by Derek of More Plates More Dates, and the use of Turkesterone really exploded in 2021. While I initially was skeptical and thought this was all hype, I've been taking Turkesterone for the past few months, as have a number of other fellas here around the office and the results are noticeable. Not only do I have more energy and more strength in the gym, but many users are reporting they are feeling more confident and self assured and have an improved mental state. This is one muscle building supplement which lives up to the hype.
NAC,also known as N-Acetyl Cysteine is an amino acid with a variety of health benefits. NAC is essential for making the powerful antioxidant glutathione, it helps the respiratory system and supports detoxification within the body. More recently a number of studies have been examining NAC as a means to fight covid due to it's ability to loosen mucus in the lungs, reduce inflammation, strengthen the immune system, and suppress viral replication. NAC is a cost effective supplement and something I've added to my daily supplement regimen.
Over the past year we've noticed a lot more customers looking for pre-workout options which are more natural and those that contain less artificial ingredients and less stimulants. We've also seen an uptick in the number of people looking for supplements containing beetroot powder or beet root powder itself. We heard you and we've brought in a number of Beetroot Powders including Force Factor Total Beets. Beetroot is a natural nitric oxide booster, supports hear health, increased energy and stamina, and blod flow and energy. If you're looking to cut down on the stims you take or are looking for a more natural preworkout option checkout Force Factor Total Beets. In addition to being a great option for replacing your curren preworkout Beetroot powders are a great ingredient to add to your morning smoothie to kickstart your day.
If you're someone who drinks energy drinks but are looking for a healthier alternative then Odyssey Mushroom Elixir's are just what you're looking for. These tasty energy drink alternatives come in coffee varieties, tea varieties, and a more traditional sparkling energy drink style option. These beverages feature mushrooms like Cordyceps, Lions Mane, Reishi, Turkey Tail, and more with each drink having a specific focus such as Energy, Focus, Mood, etc. Odyssey Mushroom Elixir's are quickly becoming a favorite here around the office.
Vitamin D, also known as "The Sunshine Vitamin" has always been an important Vitamin for our bodies. Vitamin D helps fight disease, has been shown to reduce depression, and supports weight loss. More recently however Vitamin D has seen a surge in interest with everything going on the past two years due to it's antiviral effects. Now Foods Vitamin D3 10,000 IU is a great daily vitamin to take to support strong bones and your immune system. This is a great supplement because it's incredibly cost effective and it's one of the more potent Vitamin D supplemnets on the market packing 10,000IU Vitamin D in each softgel, where as most other Vitamin D supplements on the market are only 1,000IU.
And last but not least, one more supplement you need to checkout in 2022 is a Collagen Supplement. While I would encourage you to try collagen from any brand, I'm partial to Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides. Collagen is a supplement that you'll quickly actually notice the effect that it's having on your body. Collagen supports joints and connective tissues so you'll likely notice your body is more comfortable and you experience less pain. The most noticeable thing about collagen however is the effect taking collagen will have on your hair, skin and nails. Personally I notice my complextion is better, my hair is shinier, and most notably, I notice my nails grow quicker to the point I'm having to trim my nails more often. Collagen can be mixed into your morning smoothie, or just taken mixed in with juice or water. One bit of advice, go with a collagen powder as opposed to capsules. Because collagen is a bulky ingredient you'll never get a good dosage or serving size taking capsules.
