Vitamin Supplements: Their Role in Health and Beauty

capture_2017-01-14-12-25-55I discussed the importance of a healthy mind and body in a previous post. Heatlhy in general starts on the inside. What we take inside daily is a sure indication on the outside of how healthy our bodies are on the inside. Not many of us eat properly all the time and this is where supplements come in. First let me say that getting proper nutrition should come from our food intake, but that’s if we were living in a perfect world…here’s where supplements come in. A supplement is suppose to supply us with those important vitamins we may not get through out our diets daily. Busy lifestyles don’t always make time for individuals to eat nutritious foods regularly, but that doesn’t mean our bodies have to lack the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and for it to function properly.

When choosing a supplement you may want to stay with food based vitamins. There are many synthetic vitamins that just don’t break down within the body properly and aren’t beneficial at all. If you’re buying the poplular drugstore brands it possible that you’re not getting the vital nutrients from those supplements… or just very small amounts in many cases which isn’t doing the body much good. Whole food based vtamins are made from fruits and vegetables and break down within the body much better than those that’s made of synthetic materials. It’s always wise to research brands before wasting money on the wrong products. There are several brands on the markets and these items can be purchased from your health food stores or online vitamin suppliers.

I prefer to order my supplements online, because to me I know what’s being ordered isn’t a blend of synthetic vitamins and I find great deals too. One of my favorite online vitamin suppliers is PureFormulas. They have very reasonably priced supplements that are natural, food based and they offer a great variety. I also like that they usually keep the vitamins stocked, but if their out of stock you can be notified by email once it’s back in stock…which means you are  not buying old vitamins that’s just been sitting on the shelves for months. Another thing I love is they ship for FREE! I’m more likely to spend money with an online merchant that offers free shipping any day.

Some may not need to take a vitamin supplement and for others it may vital that they do, but I will say a good multi food based vitamin should be sufficient. Not saying to take any and everything under the sun, because if you select the proper food based multivitamin…which is made up of several vitamins and minerals, then there’s not a huge need for additional supplements unless you’re looking to improve a certain area of the body. Listen to your body and pay close attention to what it tells you, so that you’re able to give it what it needs in a supplemental form and more importantly to help keep you healthy. Until next time…

  1. Good suggestion with regard to being pro-active about where and what you by for vitamins and supplements. I am an older woman so I take calcium but I am very aware that calcium may not be absorbed well, depending on exactly what calcium it is ( ie calcium carbonate, calcium citrate etc). And then there is the matter of does it come in a capsule, tablet , liquid gel etc. There are a lot of choices out there.
