Warning – this could get boring.
Let me start by saying I am not a doctor, dietician or a nutritionist. Im just a Regular-Joe with a healthy mentality and an interest in nutrition. I’m only talking about this because I personally think that it is important for me.
As I’ve talked about before, I see a nutritionist weekly (sometimes bi-weekly) and I take vitamins three times a day. I do not take a multi-vitamin because I feel they are too generic, meaning: not everyone needs that exact amount of those pre-determined vitamins on a daily basis. In case you didn’t already know – we are all different!
I count out my vitamins at night for the following day, and keep them in a pretty little bag in my purse. It makes life easier – my purse is already full of unnecessaries, I don’t need to add tons of chunky bottles to the mix!
I just wanted to give you guys an idea of what I take everyday and the foods that you could eat to get some of these vitamins & minerals. (This is a program designed by a Nutritionist for my body only, not yours.)
After this you may either think “Wow she’s a wing-nut” or “Wow, maybe I should see a nutritionist and get a regimen.” Either way, it’s fun to read about what others do to boost their health.
Vitamin C – is essential for me. It supports adrenal function (one of my past issues), skin, bones and immunity.
Vitamin C food:
Total Liver D-tox – is a natural liver detox. This supp helps boost your liver to get rid of excess toxins.
Liver detox food:
Chlorella – helps detox heavy metals (which we all are full of from antiperspirants and certain fish!)
Chlorella is an algae form… so I don’t have a food form to show you… go drink some pond scum…kidding!
Vitamin B12 – for immune support, and mood support.
Vitamin B12 food:
Calcium – supports bones, blood, cells & muscles
Calcium (non-dairy) food:
Vitamin D – to help absorb the calcium!
Vitamin D food:
Magnesium – supports nervous system, digestion, and heart. I also take it to alleviate pms and cramping every month. It has helped immensely!
My supplements may change on a weekly basis due to my levels or deficiencies, but these are all vitamins that I have been on, and will stay on as a maintenance schedule.
I hope this made you think a little about supplementing and possibly finding a nutritionist to maximize your health!
Do any of you take any vitamins or supplements? How do you feel about supplementing?
