My Daily "Must Have" Supplements
Recently, I’ve been asked what my favourite supplements are. Now I do want to be clear, you do NOT need to include supplementations into your diet to be healthy. There are food sources of everything and so, if supplements are not in your budget, that’s ok! Just try to eat as many veggies and natural foods (including fermented foods and oily fish) as often as you can within your budget.
However, if supplements are something that is affordable to you, they can compliment your diet and fill the gaps if you’re a ‘person on the go’ like me. That being said, I don’t take a lot of supplements but there are 3 main ones that are part of my daily routine.
GOOD GREEN STUFF:
The big daddy of multis the ‘cat’s ass’ of green powders. I just love Good Green Stuff and for me it’s a non-negotiable. I’ve been having it every day for over 5 years now and really notice a difference when I go without. Knowing one of the formulators personally and getting to know the team over the past few years I trust this company 100% from their quality ingredients to their company values.
Good Green Stuff has over 75 ingredients to provide daily nutritional support with every vitamin, mineral, antioxidant and essential nutrients that you need. Not only that but it contains prebiotics, probiotics and digestive enzymes to help with digestion and CoQ10 and B-Vitamins along with herbs to help boost your metabolism and handle stress more effectively.
I challenge you to find me a green powder or multi as good as this one. Go on.
While it’s price tag is higher than most multis the cost of all the ingredients combined would cost you a whole lot more and if you use my code MYANDLE you get a whopping 20% off!
Also available through Vital Health NZ is my new favourite probiotic. I have been taking it for almost a year now and have noticed a big improvement in my erm, digestive habits. Vita Biosa provides you with your daily supply of fermented active probiotic lactic acid bacteria.
It is a ready-to-drink herbal mix, based on lactic bacteria and herbs. It contains up to 8 different probiotic bacterial cultures and is based on an extract of no less than 19 different herbs.
A shot a day is all you need and if you get the 3000ml box it’s a great price over 3 months.
MELROSE FISH OIL
I can’t recommend taking fish oil enough. This fish oil is a good source of essential omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), which cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained through the diet. Fish oil supports eye and heart health, it helps to maintain healthy blood fats and supports nervous system function and healthy foetal development. For children up to 12 years of age, it supports the development of the brain, eyes, and nerves. – Winning! Best part is, it doesn’t taste like fish.
HOW DO I TAKE IT?
Every morning I fill a shaker cup with water and add 2 scoops of Nuzest Smooth Vanilla Clean Lean Protein. I then add my fish oil, and whatever extras I feel like having (hemp oil, MCT, mushroom elixirs). I shake it up and drink it first thing in the morning before I even have my coffee! I’ve been doing this for over a month now and I it’s become a solid part of my daily routine – just like brushing my teeth.
And that’s it! That’s all I take each day and it works for me. Sure there are lots of ‘boosters’ and ‘bonuses’ out there but really, all we need to start with is the above.
