Some of these nutrients include:

Omega 3

Primarily found in fish oil, omega 3 is a nutrient that can be easily overlooked. Not many of us eat fish regularly. Some may not even know what Omega 3 is. Moreover, for those who are vegetarians, omega 3 may be the one nutrient that you are not getting properly. This is because the vegetable oils such as flaxseed oil do not convert quite efficiently.

Calcium

Many people believe that drinking milk is enough to fulfill the requirement of calcium that their body needs. This is not true. Firstly, very rarely do most of us consider drinking milk regularly once we grow. It is therefore important to get some extra supplements and include some green vegetables such as spinach in your diet.

CoQ10

This is a nutrient that you may not get so easily with your daily diet. It is usually found in beef and other fatty fish. Due to our lack of eating such foods every day, taking supplements might be a good idea. CoQ10 helps in producing energy and in neutralizing free radicals.

Glucosamine

Glucosamine is a very important nutrient as it fights against osteoarthritis. There are only a few, if any, food source that have glucosamine and therefore taking in supplements for this can be beneficial.
