We all take supplements! They are great for getting in the nutrients we lack in our diet. There are a few supplements that I believe every woman should be taking… I have made a list of 5 Supplements You Should Take (regardless of age or goals!)

…But Before We Get To The List!

I wanna note that supplements have their place in our diet (and are totally necessary!)  but they are still SUPPLEMENTS! They are meant to compliment a good diet, not replace one. Nothing is quite the same as getting nutrients from the real source! 

As a holistic nutritionist, I’ve learnt to use whole foods to get the nutrients that I need and use supplements to compliment my diet. As I like to say, real food over supplements any day! 

Check out my Overview of Dietary Supplements blog to gain a better understanding of why it is important to use caution when purchasing and consuming supplements!

3 Supplements You May Want to Take

  1. Omega 3 fatty acid: Simply put eat more fish, raw nuts, organic eggs and superfoods like chia! They are all a great source of omega 3s! Omega 3 helps our cardiovascular health, acts as an anti-inflammatory, and can even aid in weight loss! The benefits of omega 3s is ENDLESS! Supplement with krill oil and algae. Make sure to rotate your Omega 3 supplement! I personally like changing to a 3-6-9 every few weeks!

  2. Probiotics & Probiotic foods: Fermented foods like kimchi, sauerkraut, kombucha tea are a great and tasty way to get good bacteria in our tummy! Probiotics are essential to gut health and our digestive systems. I think both supplementation and food are both equally important!
