I haven’t always been a huge supplement taker as I often forget to take them but recently i’ve been on it and along with increasing my fat and calorie intake while limiting my dairy and grains… touch wood… i’m feeling fab! So I thought i’d share with you guys what i’m taking supplement wise….
These are to keep my gut happy. If you’ve been with me for a while then it’s not secret that my gut is so unpredictable so to keep things happy and full of good bacteria I pop a probiotic every day – i’m currently using Biokult -buy yours here.
Digestive Enzymes /
I take this to literally assist my digestion… every little helps!
Vitamin D /
I’ve started taking this in the Winter as it is really thought to not only help with mood but also help support my immune system – I use this one.
Vitamin C /
Ahhhh this little delight I believe saves me when working in a gym full of germs. Being around clients who are often ill or around others that are ill this time of year taking vitamin C I believe has really helped my immune system and to fight off any nasties. – I pop a vitamin c and magnesium in a drink in the mornings
Evening Primrose /
After a visit to my naturopath because i’m on the pill, evening primrose was recommended to help with PMS symptoms but also skin problems – I’ve changed a lot of things recently in my diet so I can’t say if this stuff is exactly making big changes but hey! I’m feeling bloody good, so that’s a start right?
Lactase enzymes /
If i’m going to be put in a situation where my food choices and flexibility is limited I pop a lactase enzyme in case I have too much lactose. These babies are incredible if you have an intolerance to lactose as they assist your gut in the digestion of it! It gives me peace of mind that my gut isn’t going to go on a crazy flare up if I eat too much dairy that will irritate it! – I use these ones.
*I buy all my supplements from Holland & Barrett.
