All about my supplements – recommendation for daily supplements/ immunity booster
The following vitamins and supplements are all useful & beneficial for many different reasons! However, some supplements work for me but don’t necessary work for you as well. Do some research and ask questions if needed. I’ll share with you some basic insights about my supplements and why we (my husband and I) take them. The brands I use are the one I recommend or like to use.
I have to insist on how wholesome eating habits and lifestyle should be on top of your priorities. Supplements are great but they don’t replace anything. They should complement your healthy habits.
Apply these simple rules before shopping for supplements (I buy 90% of mine on amazon)
- Buy natural and avoid chemicals in your supplements. How is it supposed to help you if it’s full of cr**?
- Check the food source. If it doesn’t have one, it’s synthetic!
- Read about it on health websites. Also check the label to make sure it aligns with your dietary restrictions.
Bee pollen is a apparently a very complete supplement along with Royal Jelly. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, lipids and fatty acids, enzymes, carotenoids and bioflavonoids. It has powerful antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral properties that strengthen the capillaries, reduce inflammation, stimulate the immune system and lower cholesterol levels naturally.
When you can’t get 30 minutes of sun everyday (taking a walk, working out outdoor, etc.) you probably have a vitamin D deficiency. It’s very common for people living in big cities and working from of a computer or in an office space to need vitamin D supplement. My husband has an important deficiency whereas I don’t but still take half a dose.
Getting a sufficient amount of vitamin D is important for normal growth and development of bones and teeth, as well as improved resistance against certain diseases.
We take 1 dose everyday (or when we don’t forget at least). B-12 deficiencies are known to cause fatigue and insomnia. We have been using this supplement as an energy booster.
Vegetarian and vegan are more likely to be deficient in b12, so get your levels checked and use this supplement if needed.
- Assists with calcium absorption to promote bone strength, supports the nervous system, and promotes brain health.
I have been taking prenatal for the last year and I have seen amazing results. two years ago, stress really affected my hair and I lost lots of hair mass. Since I have been taking pre-natal I have seen an incredible improvement (probably due to other supplement as well)
Nu skin is my go-to brand, but it’s pretty pricy and also can be very intense on the stomach. You need to eat something with it otherwise you can feel nauseous.
Collagen (use promo code MYORGANICDIARY10 on furtherfood.com)
I strongly believe that collagen helped my hair getting stronger and my skin staying healthy. It’s also very important for me to add protein source to my diet and this one is very convenient.
- Improves and strengthens skin, nails & hair health
- Helps with joint pain inflammation
- Improves leaky gut issues
- Helps boost metabolism, muscle mass & energy output
- Contains amino acids which are important for digestive & central nervous system health
This plant (the pills have a nasty taste btw, so eat something after taking them!) is primarily used for menstrual issues such as irregular menstrual cycles, PMT symptoms and menopausal bleeding irregularities such as frequent or heavy bleeding.
Other supplements I recommend:
- Ashwagandha: helps with stress and sleep
- Aloe fusion from Global Healing: helps with digestion
- Echinacea: excellent remedy for cold
