At the start of fall, I always try to take better care of myself by taking extra vitamins and supplements. With my full-time job as a pharmacist and the changing temperatures, I’m usually prone to getting sick. I also tend to exercise less because the cold temps make it extremely hard to get up and get out. Not to mention, the incoming holiday celebrations bring on a little more stress. So at the end of the day, the one thing I can control is what I put into my body. Though I don’t go get too picky about what I eat and how much I eat, I do try to add wholesome meals and supplements to boost my overall health since what we eat affects our skin, hair, and every part of our body and lifestyle. However, I don’t think it necessarily means we need to be super restrictive although it’s totally fine if you are. For me personally, it’s incredibly difficult to resist carbs, especially pasta – and I need my wine every now and then. And sure, “moderation is key” but sometimes we’re faulty and give in (I’m guilty).This is where beauty supplements come into play.
Today, I wanted to share my favourite supplements for autumn and winter!
Swiss Energy Hair, Nail & Skin sustained release capsules is my supplement of choice when it comes to skin, hair, and nail support! In the past, I’ve only focused on biotin supplements, but I’ve learned that there are other key ingredients I was missing. This product comprises of Niacin, Biotin, B1, B6, Zinc, Iron, L-Cysteine, L-Methionine and Pantothenic acid all in one. The combination of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and medical yeast stimulates hair growth, restores hair structure, strengthens nails and maintains skin health. The amino acids (L-Cysteine and L-Methionine) help to build the keratin structure of hair and nails, the minerals (Zinc, Iron) help cell regeneration, Vitamin B complex - for healthy skin, hair and nails.
Other supplements I'm taking during this time of year:
For a Healthier gut - Bio-Kult Advanced Multi-Strain Formulation Probiotic.
Did you know that nearly 70 percents of our immune system is housed in the gut?
Although people often think of bacteria and other microorganisms as harmful “germs,” many are actually helpful. Some bacteria help digest food, destroy disease-causing cells, or produce vitamins. Many of the microorganisms in probiotic products are the same as or similar to microorganisms that naturally live in our bodies.
Probiotics are essential for a healthy digestive tract (They maintain a healthy community of microorganisms or help our body’s community of microorganisms return to a healthy condition after being disturbed), they influence our body’s immune response and are controlling inflammation.
Also for the immune system - Aboca ImmunoMix Plus capsules.
Immunomix Plus capsules is a 100% natural product, result of Aboca's Research, useful to support the body's natural defences thanks to the multi-fraction freeze-dried extract of Echinacea (Echina2-LMF), the freeze-dried juice of Elderberry and the total concentrate of Cat's claw.
