The Top 10 Supplements That Will Bring You Success In 2021 (Part 1)

2020 has left us just feeling… sluggish, tired and a lot heavier than usual. Yes, we have substantial grounds to blame it on being very inactive throughout the COVID-19 pandemic… But what’s done is done, and we certainly can’t change the past. However, we can definitely have an influence over our future.

That’s where supplements can help. Supplements can give you access to critical nutrients that your current diet may not provide in optimal amounts and will undoubtedly help you feel 100% healthy again.

We know that an issue in the present world is taking multivitamins and generic supplements that don’t actually get the job done. From personal experience, we know that it is hard to understand which supplements will actually get the job done and help you achieve your goals. Therefore, the Keppi team has provided a top 10 list of the supplements that you should be taking with you into 2021. 

 

 

1. Electrolytes

 

Top Benefits: 

Keppi Electrolyte Supplement Benefits

 

The Bottom Line:

It is one of the most important supplements you’ll need in your daily routine. Electrolytes are essential minerals that support many vital functions in the body. They regulate muscle contractions, control; the nervous system functions and keep you hydrated. If your electrolyte levels are too low, you may suffer from fatigue, headaches, nausea, low energy, and simply not feeling well… not ideal, is it? 

You can indeed get electrolytes from a sports drink. Still, they are generically produced and contain low-quality trace minerals (if any at all). Moreover, they are worryingly high in sugar (which isn’t going to help your fitness goals at all). 

Keppi offers an electrolyte powder that supports your choice of diet or any fitness goals! If you choose to go another direction, make sure to get a supplement that contains calcium, magnesium sodium and potassium at the bare minimum.

Similarly, to Keppi, if they contain trace minerals – that is a bonus. Trace minerals are compounds found in the foods you eat. Your body needs them in only minimal amounts, but those small amounts go a long way in helping you to stay healthy and keep your body working optimally.

Forms:

 When:

  • In the morning and/or any time after excessive sweating.

 

2. MCT Oil

 

 

Top Benefits: 

Keppi MCT Oil Health Benefits

 

The Bottom Line: 

Keeping the science mumbo jumbo short – MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides. A Triglyceride is a technical term for fat. As you connect the dots, you will understand that MCT means Medium Chained Fats. The majority of fats come from Long-Chain Triglycerides (Fats), which contain 13 – 21 carbons. On the contrary, Short-Chain Triglycerides (Fats) have fewer than 6 carbon atoms. And you guessed it, MCTs includes 6 – 12 carbon atoms. 

Keppi Tip: Look at the MCT oil label and check what level of carbons they are using. If it’s not 100% pure caprylic 8 or 10 acids (C8 or C10), then put it back on the shelf! You won’t crush any goals without those ingredients (we offer c8 & c10 here). Fats derived from C8 and C10 MCTs are sourced from clean fat burning foods such as coconuts. 

MCT oil is great for keto, and it gives your body the fastest access to ketogenic energy. You can get unflavoured MCT oil and drizzle it over your salad, or tip it into your coffee. 

Forms: 

  • Oil

When:

  • With a meal in mornings. We prefer to take it on an empty with black coffee of a morning!

 

3. Fish / Krill Oil (Omega-3 Fatty Acids)

 

Top Benefits:

Health Benefits

 

The Bottom Line: 

We need this supplement to have optimal brain function. A massive problem is that people don’t nearly get enough of omega-3s through our diet alone. If we eat meat and fish multiple times a week, we will get there!

However, a practical solution is to take omega-3 supplements for less hassle. We recommend Krill oil, as that is a stable source of phosphorylated omega-3s – this simply means that it is easier for your brain to use.

Omega-3s are essential for optimal health, and they fight inflammation. Additionally, they may prevent heart disease and a decline in brain function. They will assist you in making the most out of your everyday life in 2021. 

Forms:

  • Capsule or Oil

When:

  • We take ours in the morning with all our other supplements! But it is recommended you take it with meals.

 

4. Exogenous Ketones

Alright, so you’re following a ketogenic diet. By now you’ve probably heard of exogenous ketones – or ketone supplements that support the body when entering ketosis – with no fuss, stress, or extra effort on your part. If you aren’t on a keto diet, and you are keen to lose a few extra pounds in 2021, then exogenous ketones are still for you. 

Ketones are a type of fuel in your body that uses fat for energy as opposed to glucose. As a consequence, users will feel a decrease in appetite (especially for sweet foods and drinks).

To maximise the use of this supplement, you will need to be on a keto diet. Why? Well, Let’s break it down to the bare basics: cutting carbs forces you to use stored fat for energy in a metabolic state called ketosis. And when complemented with the right Keppi supplements, your humble body will become a powerhouse fat-burning machine.

Forms:

When:

  • We suggest in the morning with food or mix it with your coffee.

 

5. Vitamin B12

 

Top Benefits:

The Bottom Line:

The human body needs vitamin B12 to make red blood cells, nerves, DNA, and carry our other functions. Some people don’t consume enough vitamin B12, and that it is relatively common. Furthermore, this wonder supplement supports your mood and metabolizes serotonin.

As mentioned other blogs, COVID-19 is a traumatic time and has led to overwhelming stressPeople are turning to food for comfort as a reasonable coping strategy. Thus, many of us have put on a few pounds.

Using B12 to stabilize your mood will result in lower levels of mental negativity, and you will be stress eating less.

Forms:

  • Capsule

When:

  • Daily with food
