My Supplement Routine

Here’s something you may not know about me: I have an obsession with supplements. I take a lot- and I mean a LOT- of different supplements in the morning. I do so after I’ve consumed plenty of lemon water, my morning coffee, and my breakfast. Some I have to take due to doctor’s orders, but most of them are taken by my own choice (so to speak).

Because of this, I thought it’d be interesting to share my supplement routine for all of you. I’m not suggesting that you adapt it- I’m just shining a light on a small part of my morning routine.

So, without further ado, here’s my supplement routine:

Biotin:

This B vitamin is water-soluble and boosts energy metabolism. However, I only take it to improve the health of my hair, nails, and skin. I do notice that all of these things have improved significantly since taking biotin, and I’m loving it.

Maca (not pictured):

I only recently began taking maca, so I can’t speak to its effects showing right now. I also don’t take a lot of it- just one capsule per day. I treat it more like another antioxidant because it’s so new. But so far, it’s been treating well, and that matters that most.

Magnesium:

I take magnesium for a number of different reasons. It’s said to improve bone health, boost mood, and reduce the risk of contracting several diseases. I feel healthier when I take it because of how beneficial it is to my overall health.

Omega-3 Fish Oil:

I took omega-3 fish oil pills many years ago, but stopped suddenly- and I honestly don’t remember why. I’m glad that I started taking it again several months ago. It’s said to help prevent diseases such as cancer and diabetes, as well as improve the brain in numerous ways.  It’s just one of the best supplements you can take regularly.

Vitamin B12:

This is one of the two supplements my doctor ordered me to take after seeing that I deficit in that vitamin. It may help prevent dementia, and helps me perform better in a number of ways. This includes movement, tiredness, and weight loss, just to name a few.

Vitamin D:

The other supplement that I have to take is vitamin D. Considering that I don’t live in a super sunny area that’s cold most of the year, it’s important that I get enough vitamin D in my life. It maintains good health, boosts the immune system, supports cardiovascular health, and so much more!

Zinc:

Zinc lowers your blood sugar, boosts your immune system, and can improve many aspects of your body such as eyes and skin. I take it more so to benefit my eyes and skin than anything else. I do find that both are stronger than before, so I’ll consider that a win.

***

Please don’t try to adapt my supplement routine as it is. Consult your doctor before you begin taking any vitamins- especially if you’re pregnant or have any kind of medical condition. The point in this blog post is just to show you what I do for my health- that’s it.
