Supplements That Make a Difference

As I am getting older, I have been intrigued to take vitamins and supplements to improve my overall health.  I have noticed that my body is requiring extra nutrients that I may not be consuming on the daily with my hectic schedule. I was recommended Hum Vitamins and a couple of others that have great feedback. I decided to give them a try. I took supplements for 2 months straight and let me tell you I feel great!

Hum Nutrition

After reading the rave reviews online and eye-catching bottles, I decided to give them a try.  For starters, you are assigned a nutritionist and take a quiz to figure out what are the best supplements for you. I was suggested 4 different supplements and was offered a 15% discount for buying 3.  Their prices are comparable to others supplements in the market. I like the convenience of changing out my supplements to fit my current needs and having them delivered. They are offering a $10 discount if you use 23CB0A.

Big Chill- Rhodiola rosea root extract

Claims to help you cope with and remove the signs of stress. I was skeptical about this one, how can a little pill help with stress?  I took it for a month and during stressful events I felt levelheaded and not frazzled or irked.  I decided to not use it for a month thinking the other supplements were giving me the benefits and I was WRONG!   During the month of not using it I reverted to feeling anxious during stressful events.  I have this one on auto ship and highly recommend it.

Moody Bird- Dong quai & chaste berry

Claims to help maintain healthy hormonal balance and alleviate symptoms of PMS.  I have suffered from a hormonal imbalance and during a menstrual cycle my cramps have been intense. I noticed that this helps minimize my cramps to one day vs three, with minor discomfort.  The color of my flow was very bright and overall improved.  It did not lessen the length of time of my flow. 

Daily Cleanse- Green algae & detox herbs

Claims to help clear your skin and body from toxins.  I have had acne from my teens to adult hood.  I feel that this supplement in conjunction with juicing three times a week to aid in the detox of my liver has minimized my breakouts.

Turn back Time- Polypodium Leucotomos, Vitamin C, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Green Tea extract, Turmeric Extract & Lutein

Claims to provide UV damage control and age defying skin cell protection.  I have noticed that my small wrinkles are at bay and have decided to skip Botox for now. I do wear sunscreen and a hat to protect myself from the sun.

Organic Ashwagandha- referred to as Indian ginseng

Fortifies the adrenal function, energy and stress levels.  This is my new favorite!  I have had issues trying to quiet my mind and have restful sleep.  My mind races with things I need to accomplish for the week, which results to tossing and turning for hours.  I take this supplement one hour prior to bed and my mind has finally quiet down and given me restful sleep. 

Krill Oil- source of omega 3

Claims to reduce high triglyceride levels, relieving rheumatoid arthritis, relieving dry eye symptoms, and support brain function.  Studies have claimed that krill oil may be superior to fish oil.  I love that this does not have a fishy after taste and the pill is a small soft gel.  I have not noticed any changes while taking this but will continue to take it for now.
