I've always liked taking supplements. I eat fairly healthy, and I exercise a lot, but I also push myself to the limit on a daily basis with trying to juggle jobs and family.
I have some supplements I've been taking for a while, and thought I'd share them. This is not a sponsored post. I just have a few products I really like and would recommend.
I love the Vitamin Shoppe's Energy Formula multivitamin. I've been taking it for about 15 years! I have tried switching a few times, but always feel like I'm dragging when I do. The Energy Formula has goodies like royal jelly and ginsing in it that really seem to help me function better through the day.
I like taking probiotics, which help my stomach issues. Not all probiotics are created equal. You want to make sure you get one that needs to be refrigerated after opening, and that has millions of
active cultures. The one I have been using lately has 1 billion active cultures. I've been hearing a lot lately about probiotics assisting in weight loss - which might be an added bonus if you are looking for that.
I like to take Omega 3s. I have been using these Coromega 3 packs - they are easy because they are individual servings, and they taste good with no fishy taste. I like Barlean's too though.
I also take calcium, extra B-12 (I have a history of deficiency, which was very difficult to get rid of, so I always take extra), and Vitamin D in the winter months. When I have joint pain, I supplement with glucosamine chondroitin, but I try not to stay on that for longer than 6-8 weeks, as it tends to raise my blood pressure.
These are the things that help keep me going, day after day, run after run, rush after rush. How about you, readers? Have you found any supplements that you really love?
