Friday Favourites- Vitamins

Happy Friday! Are you a fan of supplemental vitamins and minerals like I am? Not everyone is, but I really love getting some extra help. I legit feel stronger, healthier and better. I know the very best way to get our vitamins is through food sources but when we can't eat four oranges daily that's not always possible. 

Sidenote, I pay a little extra for better vitamins as I do think it makes a big difference.

Here are five of my very favourites. Please note, I'm not a physician and in no means is this intended to be health advice but these work for me. 

1- A really good multivitamin catering to Active Women. I love the Progressive Brand that a cousin introduced me to many years ago and I've been using it since . I love the little extra stuff that it has catering to women who are on the move.

2- The Wellness Mama podcast and The Found My Fitness People both recommend a fish oil supplement and apparently the best type is algae as it's right from the source and is more shelf stable than actual fish oil. This is the one I use.

3- I read somewhere about the importance of taking magnesium supplements when you are in your thirties and beyond and I've done it ever since. It's great for bone health, calcium absorption, heart health and overall  metabolic well-being. Check, check and check! I love this one!

SISU Magnesium

4- Love a good B 12  for added energy as I don't really eat red meat. The Sisu brand is one of my faves.

5- And of course, all of us in North America should be taking a Vitamin D in the winter time as we don't get enough sunshine exposure. It also helps with energy levels, bone and teeth health, cardiovascular optimisation and protection against a plethora of conditions.  On the advice of a naturopath, I switched to drops, take more than the recommended dosage and really love it. 

Vitamin D3 Liquid Drops with Vitamin K2 MK7 ★ New ★ Full 2000IU Per Drop - Vitamin D 2000 IU Effective, Safe - 4-5 Times Stronger than Other Brands - 900 Doses in 1 Oz Dropper Bottle

This is my morning routine. I know it's best to have different vitamins at different times of the day but I totally forget so I do it all in the am.

Are you a vitamin fan? If so, which ones are your jam.  Sound off in the comments below.
