Good morning, good afternoon or good evening people of the internet!
I’ve been taking vitamins for quite some time now, and I thought maybe you’d find some useful information with the ones I am taking. I always like seeing what other people take to see if it would be something that is helpful for what I lack. I try to stick to a healthy diet, but I also know I can’t always get all of my vitamins from one day of eating, so this way it ensures that I get what I really need.
*Disclaimer: I am not a health care professional and these are vitamins that work for me currently, but please speak with your doctor for your needs.
The following are only vitamins I am taking in the moment, not necessary my all time favorite brands, but I will give you an update when I switch things around. These are still really good options, in my opinion, and have been working for me quite well.
Alright here we go….
Collagen has been increasingly becoming more popular lately and I totally understand why. This one by youtheory is great, you do notice the results of taking them, but the only issue I have with it is that you have to take 6 decent sized pills each time. It says you could take it through out the day, but I know I would forget to take it if I did that, so I try to take it all at once. Collagen is great for hair, skin and nails. This is known to be good for older women/men because as we age, we tend to loose more collagen – a major structural protein in the body. I’m not sure what it is really doing to me as far as the aging process, but I do notice my hair feels thicker when I take this.
Ever since I learned Fish Oil was good for your skin, I haven’t stopped taking it. Well, I haven’t been as consistent as I would like, but I always try to have this on hand. Fish oil is great for heart, brain, skin, eye and joint health. I like this one because there is no weird aftertaste after you take it.
Magnesium is a hidden gem. It is great for calming your anxiety, helps constipation/digestion, helps muscle aches (great for all my gym peeps!), great when taking before sleeping as it aids in calming you, and helps with heart health. If you don’t currently take magnesium supplement, I believe I might’ve just convinced you to do so!
I do not eat a lot of meat, so I try to make sure to take a B-12 supplement. For me, it was hard to remind myself to keep taking it so I decided to get the spray form, so I could take it even when I am running late and need to rush out of the house! The taste is fine to me, pretty good I would say, although, I would rather have a neutral flavor.
These are a fun way of taking Vitamin C. They are chew-able and taste like oranges. I like to take vitamin C whenever I feel like I am getting slightly sick. Not only does it help with your immune system, but it will also help with your stress. Vitamin C is a power house and I try to always take it when I can.
Most of us are deficient in vitamin D (although, you should always check with your doctor), and I like taking D3 to support my immune system, bone health/teeth, regulate insulin levels and reduce risk of flu. I’ve linked an alternative brand as Amazon does not have WholeFoods brands, but with the acquisition perhaps they will soon.
B complex is a group of 8 vitamin B’s. B vitamins allow your body to transform food into glucose, which aids in digestion and production of energy. This will also aid with your anxiety and depression. Just a warning, this one will make your pee orange.
Thanks for reading.
