Supplements Debunking The Myths
We all know that taking supplements of vitamins and minerals can provide us with some real health benefits. However, it is true that we can also eat this ‘goodness’ in the form of leafy green vegetables (spinach, kale), some fruits (berries, pomegranates) and cruciferous offerings from the family Brassicaceae (cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts). It is also fair to point out that we could never eat enough of these foods to manage to gain all the nutrients needed!
Hence the requirement for supplements, the basic broad lines here are to partake of iron (energy and bloodstream), B6 (skin hair and nails), evening primrose oil (good sleep), collagen (youthful elasticity = plumpness in the skin) and hyaluronic acid (skin tone and anti-age), Vitamin D spray (bones) and Ginseng (heart, immune system and concentration)
The real test for me has been not using these for over a week and I have definitely noticed a decline. My moods have been affected even though I have sat in the sun (very carefully I may add), taken exercise, eaten healthily. My radiance and lustre has not been as obvious (I refer of course to my skin’s glow, shiny hair and strong nails! just in case any of you are worrying that I am hankering after fetching a stick!!)
My hydration levels have been at drowning point and that still has not counteracted the lack of supplements. Thus it is so that for me the supplements are not a myth and are of very real benefit.
