Ever get overwhelmed with all the supplements out there? We do too!
We honestly try to keep it as simple as we can because we don’t like our bodies to be too dependent on supplements. We eat a pretty clean, well balanced diet – & we’d like to think we get a lot of nutrients from that!
So here it is – our 4 (yes only 4) staple Supplements that are consistently in our day to day lives…
IRON: We both have been severely low on iron before! Iron is an essential mineral which plays a key role in the making of healthy red blood cells. Without healthy red blood cells, your body doesn’t get enough oxygen. When you don’t get sufficient oxygen throughout your body, you’re going to be exhausted, which can affect everything from your brain function to your immune system’s ability to fight off infections. If we don’t take Iron we can also get super ‘fainty’ during our workouts.
Our Brunette takes “BOB’S” iron & Blondie takes “Palafer”.
MAGNESIUM CITRATE: Magnesium is a naturally occurring mineral that is important for many systems in the body, especially the muscles and nerves. It helps us relax before bed. Magnesium citrate also increases water in the intestine & helps keep you regular. We love ‘Natural Calm’ Magnesium Citrate Powder. It tastes delicious & works like a charm!
DIGESTIVE ENZYMES: Digestive enzymes help the body break down fats, carbohydrates, and proteins. Using Digestive enzymes will help promote healthy digestion & elliminate bloating. These days almost everyone has food sensitivities & we find these really help!
Blondie uses ‘Organic Digest +’ chewable’s by Garden Of Life & our Brunette used ‘Digest Gold’ by Enzymedica.
VITAMIN B COMPLEX: Vitamin B Complex to increases energy, enhances mood, boosts skin and hair health and stimulates the immune system. Its a great staple to have in almost anyone’s day to day routine. We switch between ‘Basic B Complex’ by Thorne Research & ‘B 50 Complex’ by Body Energy Club brand.
Hope you guys learned a thing or two from this! Or maybe even added a new supplement to your daily routine ;)…
Ps. Body Energy Club has the best prices in terms of supplementation – you can find all these supplements there!
