Happy Tuesday loves! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I wanted to share a guide to vitamins because I think they are so so so important to your health and especially important now with cold and flu season in full swing. I don’t want to jinx myself, but I rarely get sick (& not only because I get a flu shot every year…thanks for the reminders Dad). I am one who truly believes that exercise, supplements and eating an abundance of healthy foods is why my immune system can fight off anything that comes my way.
Pure Encapsulations is a supplement company which I recently came across because the company reached out to me review the product. The more I read, the more I liked what I saw. I have been taking each of the below supplements for about a month now and love that these in particular do not contain any wheat, nuts, artificial sweeteners, egg or hydrogenated oil.
So here’s the round up:
Multivitamin– this one is a must for me. Includes vitamins A, B, C, D and E. Supports optimal health in one dose.
Magnesium-Supports metabolism and utilization of nutrients, energy production, and also essential for bone health and cardiovascular support. Magnesium is #2 on my list of must haves for me. Here is an interesting article if you want to read more- 10 signs you need more magnesium.
Omega– 1000 mg of EPA & DHA from fish oil (2x potency of other fish oil supplements) and omega 3 fatty acid support. What does this mean? Encourages cardiovascular health, important for joint function and helps promote hydration and elasticity for smoother looking skin. LOVE! Omega 3 fatty acids are also found in a lot of fish (salmon and tuna) which is great to incorporate into your diet as well.
B12 5000 liquid– for nervous system health, neurological function, energy and immune system health. “The energy vitamin.” Lord knows that I can use a little mood, memory and energy boost every once in awhile. 😉 This doesn’t taste too bad either!
D3 liquid– good for bone, breast, prostate, cardiovascular, colon and immune health. Living in San Francisco, I don’t see much sun so I always like to supplement. Also, vitamin D levels decline with age naturally so a vitamin supplement or vitamin D enriched foods will do the trick.
Best-Rest Formula– This works great to promote relaxation and a good nights sleep. I don’t take these every night, but I have taken them the past few nights and have fallen right asleep and sleep through the night. I like these especially because they don’t make you feel groggy in the morning. They don’t smell great but they do work for me without being habit forming.
I also like to take a lot of Biotin and Zinc which is not captured above. Biotin is great for hair and nail strength and Zinc is good for your immune system and helps fight colds.
I do want to mention that you can get a lot of these vitamins naturally in your diet, but I have found it extremely beneficial to incorporate these supplements into my routine. I don’t usually take all at once, and I do sometimes skip days, but like to make sure I take at least a multivitamin each day.
So that’s the roundup! Hope you find this helpful!
