Vitamins: What I take and Why
Vitamins don’t necessary give you more energy but they do provide your body with essential compounds to help it grow and function properly. I wanted to share with you the vitamins that I take daily and why.
Remember do your research first and talk with your doctor if you are on any other medications.
This is the vitamin I have been taking the longest and probably my favorite. When you take it you know it’s working because your body starts to heat up a bit, especially your stomach, which why it’s a good idea to take it with some food.
Cayenne pepper is great for your gut and digestive system. If you are a coffee LOVER like me, cayenne pepper can help detoxify your body and reduce acidity. Cayenne is also a natural gas reliever and helps stop stomach cramps. I take 2 capsules every morning 🌶❤️.
Collagen is a great vitamin for both men and women to take. It helps with skin, hair, nails and also joints. I love for all the above and especially the joints part as I am a avid runner.
In the first two weeks of taking of it, my nails have grown a lot fast and appear to be a lot stronger. Like the cayenne pills I take 3 of these in the morning.
Chlorophyll is called the ‘natural scavenger’ because it can bind to potential carcinogens and interfere with how they’re absorbed within the human gastrointestinal track.
I started taking chlorophyll because I was started to get this acidic smell, almost like vinegar. I started taking 1 capsule a day and within the first two days it went away. Chlorophyll needs to be taken with a fat, which is why I take it with my bulletproof coffee in the mornings.
Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a very strong antioxidant. It really helps fight inflammation and foreign invaders.
I take 1 capsule of turmeric every morning. Make sure if you get turmeric, you get one with black pepper in it, that helps absorb into your bloodstream faster. Curcumin is also fat soluble, so it is also a good idea to take with a fat, like avocado toast or like me and have some bullet proof coffee.
