My Daily Supplements

Hey Everyone,

I have been taking supplements for the past 2 years and been sticking to the same brand. I believe that all our daily food intake, no matter how much healthy food intake you take in a day, it is not enough. Supplements are the ones that helps feed us with adequate amount of nutrients and maintain good health condition. We don’t necessary have to take all types of vitamins, like me, I only take 3 types of vitamins:

Blackmores-Omega-Cardiwell

1. Fish Oils

Fish oils are rich in Omega-3 and it is good for the heart and for memory. For more info, you can read it here.

The product that I’m taking is Blackmores Cardiwell. Its in a form of gel capsule and it has no fishy-like smell. There are many types of fish oils, and according to the local pharmacist (that I went to the Guardian pharmacy), the difference between normal omega-3 oils and Cardiwell is that Cardiwell is the original, pure fish oil and it is so concentrated that we only can take up to 2 capsules a day. Other normal fish oils have to take at least up to 6 capsules a day depending on the number of mg in the capsule to reach to Cardiwell standard.

Kordels-Bio-Ester-C

2. Vitamin C

The benefits:
1. Anti aging
2. Beat common cold
3. Boost immune system for overall health

For more info, you can also read it all here.

The product that I’m taking is Kordel’s Ester C. Its in a form of tablet and I only take once a day.

Blackmores-Multi-Vitamins-and-Minerals

3. Multi Vitamins

The reason why I take multi vitamins is because I want to ensure that my body has enough / sufficient amount of nutrients. I’m currently taking Blackmores Multivitamins + Minerals which contains essential vitamins and minerals to provide our body and mind with all-round nutritional support and help maintain health.

For more info, you can also read it all here.

Overall in my opinion, these amount of supplements that I’m taking is enough for me. We should not be over health-conscious and start taking a lot of supplements and overdose ourselves. As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat healthily, and exercise, there should not be any worries. You can also arrange an annual check up with your doctors and get professional advice from them.

And remember to drink plenty of water everyday. At least 3 litres of water. You can read my post here.

Do you normally take daily supplements? How many and what kind of supplements are you currently taking? Feel free to leave a comment below!
