What supplements I take, why I take them and when I take them just a disclaimer before I get started, I do think that we can get all the nutrients that our body needs from the food that we are eating and that you do not necessarily have to Supplement especially not on a hike of vegan Whole Foods diet, but I just take a few things to support my body and also I’ve been suffering from hypothyroidism from Agni from like liver problems.
Because of the pill. I talked about that in other articles, and I chose to take a few supplements to help my body heal itself and balance, especially to balance out my hormones and help heal my acne. So the first thing that I wanted to mention is lecture. Melissa’s not talked about this already so many times. Bexar, molasses is high in calcium, magnesium and iron, and efforts would be good for your skin, for your hair, for your nails and since I checked it, it’s like almost six months, I would say – and I think it really really helps with my nails.
I have super brutal nights before and now they are growing, much stronger and faster, and I take a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses every morning right when I get up. I have this with a warm lemon water, because the vitamin C from the lemon helps to absorb the nutrients in the back, strap molasses and just a little tip, because I find that the taste is different from brand to brand. So if you don’t like it, I would just like try different brands and see if you find a brand that you like.
I actually think it’s pretty tasty, but if you can’t handle the taste at all, maybe try to put it in your smoothies or on your oatmeal or like smoothie Bowl or you know, ice cream or something like that. But I really like the taste on its own and I had with my lemon water first thing in the morning. Another thing that I take daily is zinc and I just started recently like yeah a couple of weeks ago with taking this.
The has many many benefits for your health and it’s also supposed to help with your sleep with depression like your heart, health, your fertility so many things, but I especially check it for the health of my skin because, as you probably know, I was suffering from acne. Really badly – and I think this definitely helps with like helping heal the acne scars that I still have and yes, so zinc is also our recommendation and, of course, I’m going to link all the products that I mentioned in this article down little description box.
So you can check them out right away, then. The next thing I wanted to talk about is maca. Maca is really high. In B vitamins and vitamin C, and vitamin B Marc I supposed to help balance out your hormones. It’s also known for increasing your libido. It’s also really good just for the female body and general. It helps with like premenstrual symptoms like cramps and stuff, like that. It’s also supposed to help with anxiety and mood swings.
It’s also really good for energy levels in general and also for a good, healthy skin, and I take this almost daily in my smoothies or even on my like oatmeal or in my oatmeal, and I actually do like the taste. I think it tastes a bit like like a bisque with cookie or something like that. I’ve been taking maca on and off for a year now. I think, and I would especially to suggest maca if you have problems with getting your period back problems with your skin or administration like pain or something like that.
Mica is really really good. Then another thing that I put into my smoothies is wheatgrass powder. I get this from the cool goody, which is a German company, but they also ship in other countries. So I would recommend you check out their website. They also have chlorella powder, spirulina powder and barley grass powder, and I really like the taste of regrets powder. I especially like this in my green smoothies, and this has so many vitamins and minerals and trace minerals.
It’s just really really healthy and I like clementa yet, and I like the taste of it. This tastes like just really really healthy, and I like the taste in my green smoothies, then the next thing is this superfood powder. This contains so many things. I cannot really like list them all because it would take like forever, but it contains, for example, spirulina powder chlorella powder, then also bolivars powder and wheatgrass powder, goji, berry, mica powder, Maqui, berry acai powder like like so so so so so so many thing, and I Just got this recently from this brand roll life.
I really like the taste actually, and I thought I wouldn’t because it contains so many things, but it tastes with like fresh and healthy. Of course, this is just basically everything in one and especially if you like, green smoothies and stuff, like that, you can add the studios movies and get so many good things things from it. So yes, I think this is definitely something worth checking out and this is really high in vitamin C and vitamin K and even contains vitamin b12 so yeah I was checking out, I would say, and speaking of vitamin b12 I was having a vitamin b12 deficiency before I came to this lifestyle and then I started injecting myself.
I already said that in another article, but basically I bought the vitamin b12 online and then injected myself. I did an internship at a hospital once so that is not a problem. I took it every day for a week, then I took it once a week for a month and now I take it just like yeah now it then maybe every 3-4 months or something and my levels are up to the roof. And yes, so I do not really take vitamin b12 anymore because my levels are so so high.
I would definitely recommend to get your blood tested and check your vitamin b12 levels and also your vitamin D levels, because I personally am super super deficient in vitamin D. I think that is really common, especially for the area where I live, because we don’t. We do not have that much sunshine. I was supplementing vitamin D last summer through this brand, but then I got my blood checked and my Devils actually decreased a bit.
So I do not really in these pills, but if you want to try something out, this is one I recommend, because this is vegan and some brands for vitamin D are not vegan. That is kind of the only thing that I do not really have a solution for, but yeah. If you want to try it out, you can try out this brand. Then. The next thing that I wanted to mention is this superfood powder mix from your superfood, and this is called energy bomb.
They have different kinds on their website, just check it out, and this contains sae, Khurana, purple, corn, banana maca and lucuma and yeah. This is just also really nice to add into your smoothies, and I use this quite often as well. Then. The next thing that I wanted to mention is acai powder. This is such a superfood. It is supposed to have to have so many benefits for your body. It’s also supposed to help with weight loss.
It’s also supposed to have anti-aging effects on your body and to boost your energy and even to improve your mental function. So, yes, this is just so no, I do not really like using the powder. I would love to use the berry itself, but that’s not really possible. Some stores sell it frozen so, for example, the vegan supermarket in Germany, the vegans they sell it in their frozen section. But at the moment I just use the powder in my smoothie bowls and it tastes really really nice with berries and bananas, for example, and the last thing that I want to talk about our chia seeds.
This is not a supplement, I would say, but we like a superfood, you know – and I chia seeds daily I’d say for like yeah really long time. These are so healthy. They contain a lot of fiber and also omega-3 fatty acids. They are supposed to stabilize your blood sugar. I think they’re really good to add into your smoothies, so your blood sugar is not rising super fast, but it’s like actually a bit more stabilized and more balanced and because of its blood sugar stabilizing effect.
It’s really good to find insulin resistance and therefore it’s really good for our diabetes. Actually, it’s also really good for your teeth and for your bones and, as I said, I take this daily and I put it either in my smoothies on my smoothie bowls or in my oatmeal, and also you can make this really cool chia pudding that you probably Know with this just add a few tablespoons of this to a plant milk or to some water, and you get pudding that consistency within like yea a few hours, so chia seeds also a high recommendation to get in as well.
