Pop These Pills Mamas
I’m pumped to be back with a full breakdown of the supplements all of you should take on a daily basis. Getting this right will help further enhance your superpowers as well as your general health. Let’s go!
1. Your Digestive System
There is no use taking vitamins and minerals if they’re not being properly absorbed. Digestive enzymes are highly important to make sure that your gut is on the right track.
2. Magnesium- Makes You Lean and Happy
Magnesium controls over 300 (!) important body functions such as:
1- Helps you cope with stress and get a better night’s sleep (Hallelujah!)
2- Slows down ageing (Bye botox!) AND helps you burn fat
3- Magnesium also improves detoxification and supports healthy brain function
3. A High Quality Multi-Vitamin
Unfortunately, most of us are deficient in a multitude of vitamins and minerals, which is why a high quality, multi-vitamin is essential for your everyday health. Here’s what should be included in that daily pill:
- Minerals like Magnesium, Zinc, Manganese, Copper, Calcium and Chromium.
- A vitamin K -complex (not K1 without K2)
- A ‘Folate (‘l-5-methyltetrahydrofolate’ or ‘5-MTHF’ is what is usually says)
- A ‘Curcumin Phytosome’ and ‘Green Tea Phytosome’ (Yes, it sounds like something from ‘Lord of the Rings’.)
- If you can, check for ‘Relora’. It’s a new supplement that balances important hormones to reduce late night cravings and decrease stress.
- Last but not least (!) the best way to “quality-check” a multivitamin is by looking at the type of B -vitamin included:
|Vitamin||What to Hit||What to Miss|
|B6||Pyridoxal 5’-Phosphate||Pyridoxine HCl|
|B2||Riboflavin 5’-Phosophate||Riboflavin HCl|
4. Fish Oil: The Queen of Supplements
Besides improving heart, eye and cellular health, relieving the symptoms of diabetes, arthritis, ADHD as well as lowering your risk for Alzheimer’s, cancer and heart attack (Need I go on?) fish oil is a wonder supplement for weight loss. What’s not to love here?
