A Dose of Dani
A lot of you have been asking what I use in my daily regimen for vitamins or supplements. I don’t do a multi-vitamin because I get all the good nutrients and vitamins I need from eating nutrient-dense fruits and veggies :)
But here are some items that I like to add into my daily routine.
Maca Powder- This nutrient dense whole food grown in the mountains of Peru is packed with vitamins, essential minerals and amino acids. Studies have identified four alkaloids in maca which are known to nourish the endocrine system. Its adaptogenic properties are commonly used to increase stamina, boost libido and combat fatigue. I like to add the maca powder to my protein shakes and green shakes.
Complete Omega- This Complete Omega offers omega-3s from fish oil, omega-6 GLA from borage oil and omega-9 oleic acids. This balanced blend promotes heart health, brain function, positive mood and offers support for healthy joints and skin. I like this brand Nordic Naturals because it is tested by a third-party certified lab for environmental toxins, including heavy metals.
Organic Acai Powder- This superfood native to South America is a complex blend of antioxidants including vitamins A and C , iron calcium and dietary fiber. The acai berry fights inflammation and is notably rich in minerals and amino acids. This nutrient dense fruit also has omega-3 essential fatty acids which help with maintenance of mental and visual function. I like to add this in to my protein or green shakes.
Raw Probiotics- I use the WOMEN brand that they have that is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of women, supporting vaginal health and overall digestive function. It offers 32 “original” probiotics, minerals, prebiotics as well as dairy-digesting enzymes to help break down lactose and casein.
- It supports colon health, bowel regularity and overall digestive function
- supports gut-related immune system function and overall immune system health.
- supports healthy microbial balance by promoting healthy bacteria in the gut
- Supports healthy nutrient absorption
- Supports vaginal health and thyroid function
Super Daily D3- I have this in liquid form and this vitamin supported healthy immune system function, a healthy cardiovascular system, muscle health, calcium absorption and teeth and bone health.
