The following supplements have improved my hair, skin, nails and overall lifestyle; however, you should consult your doctor before taking any of these vitamins!
If you’ve never tried taking Omega-3, I recommend that you start! I love this supplement because it helps prevent heart disease and stroke, helps reduce symptoms of depression, helps joint pain, arthritis, aids in controlling anxiety, eye disorders, immune function and helps hair and nails. Here is the one that I take regularly: Natural Omega 3 Supplement.
I take this supplement during the winter time because I am not out in the sun as much. I take 1000 IU every other day during the winter and I find that it boosts my energy levels and I feel happier. Vitamin D has been linked to reducing your risk to multiple sclerosis and heart disease. I use this one: NOW Foods Vitamin D3 1000 IU
Have you ever been told that if you take Vitamin C on a regular basis you are less likely to catch the common cold? So have I and that’s why I started taking this supplement in the first place. I used to get sick every two weeks and my immune system just wasn’t doing a good job at fighting even a simple cold. The benefits of taking Vitamin C include helping skin age gracefully, ease stress, helps prevent upset stomach and diarrhea, builds collagen, strengthens your teeth and is linked with preventing cancer. I take this one: NOW Foods Vitamin C-1000 .
I used to suffer from mild acne until I started taking this supplement. I take it for this purpose only but it certainly has other benefits! Vitamin A helps improve your vision, plays a role in cell division and cell growth, supports the immune system, supports skin health and most importantly, has antioxidant properties that neutralize free radicals that cause tissue and cell damage which helps decrease inflammation. I take this one: Now Foods Vitamin A, 25000 IU .
I’ve been taking B12 for a year and I can’t say enough good about this supplement! I used to feel extremely tired throughout the day and would need a nap after work every single day. I discovered Vitamin B12 and it has drastically changed my energy levels. Vitamin B12 also benefits your mood, memory, heart, skin, hair, and digestion. I use this one: Now Foods B-12 2000 mcg.
I hope you enjoyed this post, please share with me some of the supplements that you take in the comments section!
