Yoga is one of the most relaxing and health-beneficial practices on this planet; this practice revives and rejuvenates the body, mind, and spirit. It is not some new age fad; yoga has been practiced for centuries by history’s most respected and renowned spiritual leaders ever known. But I learned that in addition to practicing, being healthy and mindful OFF of the mat will significantly influence your time ON the mat.

Mother Nature provides a plethora of natural supplements that can maximize your flexibility and your health.

Here are the top 4 natural supplements that you can use to get the most out of your yoga routine.

This supplement gets the heart in top shape and encourages protein synthesis in the muscles to maintain muscle flexibility and tone.

(Being a vegetarian it is hard to find Omega supplements that do NOT contain any fish oil, but Greeniche Natural Health Omega 3,6,9 are 100% vegetarian! This is what I am currently taking)

This vitamin is great for more than just your common cold. Vitamin C promotes the production of elastin and collagen needed for flexibility while building the strength of the immune system.

(One half of a grapefruit has 39 milligrams of Vitamin C and is only 52 calories! I usually go for the liquid to squeeze all of the vital nutrient Vitamin C that I can get)

This powerful mineral and antioxidant not only gives your immune system a boost, but it synthesizes collagen and cartilage for a sound yoga session.

(Some Manganese rich foods that are easy to add to your meals are nuts (especially hazelnuts, pecans or pine nuts), pomegranates which are FILLED with manganese, blackberries,  flax seed or chilli powder)

Protein is absolutely essential for any workout regimen including yoga. It supports other minerals and vitamins in your diet and repairs connective tissues and muscles.

(A protein shake for me is a MUST every single day, especially if you’re on the go)
