[HEALTH] Supplements I take

Hey yaaa,

Today I just wanted to do a real quick post on some of the supplements I've been incorporating into my diet for some time now.

What types of supplements to take is very subjective. It really depends on your needs and goals. I started taking supplements most probably because I find it hard to incorporate all essential minerals and nutrients into my diet. And also a lot of my supplements have got to do with my skin goals. Because as you know, your gurl here is serious about getting good skin especially now that I'm in my late twenties.

So here goes a brief outline of supplements that I take:

1. Multivitamins

If you're a beginner to taking supplements and don't know where to start, I recommend starting out with multivitamins. Multivitamins is like the base of supplements and they contains most essential vitamins and minerals in small quantities that helps in the maintenance of overall good health.

2. Fish Oil

I mostly take this for my skin because omega-3 has been well known for its benefits to the skin.

3. Evening primrose oil (EPO)

 EPO contains omega-6 fatty acid to maintain overall well-being especially for the ladies out there.

4. Collagen

I've not really explored much about collagen pills. I've only ever tried one brand which is Total Image, because just so happened that day I went to Watsons, and this particular brand was having a purchase-with-purchase promotion and the collagen pills were going for 50% off so I took a bottle to try. Planning to explore more into the world of collage pills. Will do another post for that.

5. Vitamin C

I try not to rely too much on vitamin C supplements as I think that getting in Vitamin C through the diet is even better. One way is through my green smoothies. Recipe over here.

6. Chlorella green algae 

Traditionally used for general health, I usually pop in the recommended dosage daily of about 6 mini pills as a back up for my greens intake. If you want great skin, I firmly believe diet plays an extremely crucial role and the 2 main ingredients to make up a great diet are your greens and fruits.

I'm always on the look out for easy ways to incorporate my diet with essential nutrients. But I know that supplements are just supplements to your diet. You can't pop pills to replace your diet. Still gotta work on that clean diet.

Ok so that's the end of this short post. Do let me know what kind of supplements you guys take in the comments below! :)
