Do you take any supplements or do you believe that everything your body needs should come from food? I try to eat as well as possible but there are a few things that I do take in capsules:
1. Fish oil
Why? I’m not sure I eat enough fish/chia seeds/hemp seeds to get a proper daily dose of the good omegas that my body needs (I’m trying to keep my PND from reappearing and fish oil is good for my brain as well)
2. Agnus Castus
Why? This herbal medicine was recommended to me after I complained that I struggle with hormonal pimples and PMS – it’s supposed to balance the hormones and I definitely notice a difference since I started taking it several months ago.
3. Vitamin D
Why? The winter this year has been unbelievably DRAB and everlasting AND I’m trying to keep that PND away (see above).
Why? My digestion is very sensitive and whereas not eating sugar, not much gluten or dairy has taken care of most of my tummy issues, I do still take a probiotic to make sure that there are enough of the good bacteria in my gut.
When everyone around me has a cold, I also take vitamin C with zinc, and am fascinated by liposomal Vitamin C although I’ve never tried it. When I first gave up sugar I took chromium tablets because they’re supposed to help with sugar cravings. Other than that I don’t take anything else anymore, no Citalopram and not even the pill. For some reason when I stopped Citalopram last summer I felt the need to stop taking artificial hormones as well. So far the results of just taking the above supplements and cleaning up my diet have been positive so I’m sticking with what I’m doing for as long as it’s working.
How about you? Do you take any supplements?
