Most vitamins you’ll encounter in the store won’t actually be absorbed by your body which is why you may see a neon color when you use the potty!
I really do encourage anyone to try to get all vitamins and minerals through food, but its not always feasible. This is where doing some research on brands and deciding what might be best for YOUR body. As with all nutrition one size DOES NOT fit all. There will be some very expensive brands out there and may even be the purest best digestible form, but if it doesn’t fit your budget, does that actually help you? Eating conventional broccoli over organic broccoli is better than no broccoli at all, and getting SOME form of vitamins & minerals is better than none or living with deficiencies.
I encourage you to do your own research if your curious about vitamins and supplements and choose what’s best for you and your budget! I like to focus on simplified processes and ingredients when it comes to food, and naturally I’m the same when it comes to my vitamins & supplements.
Pictured is my current daily Vitamins minus a probiotic I take daily that I’m out of currently.
🍎Multi Vitamin- A great multi vitamin will give you a little bit of everything and if you have a diverse diet of meats, vegetables, fruits, and grains the likely good of needing much more is unlikely.
***Obviously yearly physicals & blood work will be MOST reliable for diagnosing deficiencies***
🍎Collagen Peptides- Collagen is known to support bone health, skin cell health aka reduction of cellulite, hair & nail health (hello better than biotin!), joint mobility, essential amino acid source, and aids in a healthy gut!! ZHOU brand is certified gluten free, dairy free, grass fed, pasture raised, hormone free, zero sugar, preservative free, etc.
🍎Fish Oil- Fish oil is known to support our cardiovascular system, balance omega fatty acids, and joint health. I personally feel I don’t need Fish Oil because of my diet and use of collagen, but I do support the use if your supplementing with it! Make sure to research where it’s sourced from!
🍎Magnesium- Magnesium is essential for sleep and recovery. It’s also known for supporting bone density, muscle healing, heart health, and supports synthesis of fats and carbohydrates. For women Magnesium is also known to support menstrual cycles and side effect that come along with it!
🍎Probiotic- Do your research here. Probiotics are great for keeping the gut in check but can also be a big waste of money if not taking a quality one! I personally use Primal Kitchen it Garden of Earth brands.
🍎 CBD Oil- CBD is known for its calming effects and aid in sleep & recovery. There is a lot of studies supporting it’s benefits, but only you can decide if this is a good option for you. Do your research and if your an athlete make sure you know the rules of your sport.
