Three Supplements for Supporting Dieting and Lifestyle Goals

by Melissa Chichester

With better access to educational health information in today’s world, many Americans are beginning to adopt more healthful habits to naturally encourage well-being.

These habits include exercising more, reducing stress, and maintaining nutritional support through the consumption of nourishing foods and supplements. These healthful habits are what contribute to an overall healthy diet and lifestyle which is becoming increasingly more prevalent among the American population. Here we shine the spotlight on the top three bestselling supplements rated by customers in the “Diet and Lifestyle” category of what Puritan’s Pride offers.

#1: Raspberry Ketones

Raspberry ketones are phenols, a naturally occurring class of chemicals. Many cultures highly regard phenols in traditional health practices, and they are typically consumed by eating foods like berries, apricots, plums, and grapes. Raspberry ketones give raspberries their partly sweet, partly tart aroma are sometimes used in perfumery and to flavor foods. The same substance is found in cranberries and kiwis. Raspberry ketones are molecularly similar to capsaicin, the chemical that gives chili peppers heat. Raspberry ketones may also go by the name “frambinone,” which comes from the French word for raspberry: framboise. In recent years, raspberry ketones have become a popular supplement for individuals wanting to support their dietary habits.

#2: Probiotics

It’s not a surprise that probiotics made this list! The World Health Organization defines probiotics as “live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host.” Probiotics are widely used to support digestive and intestinal health, which we need to help our bodies properly absorb vitamins and other beneficial nutrients.* Poor diet, age, and medications may contribute to unbalanced bacteria in the gut. Probiotics can assist with encouraging this balance in addition to maintaining healthy bacteria levels in the gut.* This may help individuals trying to support their dietary habits.

#3: Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar tablets are the third bestselling supplement in our “Diet and Lifestyle” category, and with its long history, it is easy to see why. Apple cider vinegar is made from crushed apples, and vinegar is produced when fermentation occurs. Because vinegar is a source of acetic acid, it gives foods like pickles a little bit of a kick! Apple cider vinegar is a popular ingredient in health “shots” and tonics, including our own Cranberry and Apple Cider Vinegar Tonic Recipe. Touted for its benefits in holistic health practices, Puritan’s Pride has taken the benefits of apple cider vinegar and combined them into an easy-to-take tablet that contains 600 milligrams of apple cider vinegar per serving.
