The Supplements I take and WHY

Written by Bridget on . Posted in Food and Health Education, Product Love

SO I promised a little while back that I would write a post about the supplements I take and why….

Here it is 🙂

I’ve never been much of an advocate of supplements, and for most of my life I HAVEN’T taken them.

I’ve always been a massive fan REAL, WHOLE food and the magical properties it boasts….

I LOVE learning about all the wonderful anti-ageing, cancer-fighting, heart-loving, hormone-balancing, energy-enhancing, brain-boosting qualities of natures own bounty….

And my honest, professional opinion is that IF you CAN eat a varied and well-balanced diet, manage your stress well and live an overall balanced healthy lifestyle, you DON’T need to take supplements

Supplements should ONLY do what their name suggests and SUPPLEMENT an overall healthy and well-balanced intake and lifestyle….

Some time back now, it became apparent that I was “reacting” to a number of foods that I was eating everyday- Coconut ANYTHING, tomatoes, cauliflower, and a whole host of other things I couldn’t identify easily….

So I went on quite a simplified intake to be able to better assess and identify what exactly my body was not enjoying….

THIS is when I introduced the supplements that I’m about to introduce you to 🙂

IF you feel you need to SUPPLEMENT your current intake and lifestyle, these are definitely products I’d recommend 🙂

I’m VERY fussy about my nutrition and health and anything related, so I will only EVER choose the BEST 🙂

I know Cyndi and have a great respect for her commitment to bringing the best to the world 🙂

The first product I take daily is this one…. Supreme Green Blend 🙂

I’ve taken a number of different green powders over the years– many of you might already know this and I’ve shared the ones I’ve used in the past.

THIS one though WON my heart! I LOVE it! The taste, the ingredients, the properties…. I ADORE IT!

It contains Spirulina, Chlorella, Barley Grass, Stevia, Kelp and Broccoli Sprouts. It is high in B12, Chlorophyll, plant protein, minerals and OODLES of other vitamins and plant properties.

I LOVE that it is organic and I love the care with which it has been formulated!

Greens cleanse the blood and really make a difference to how “clear and clean” you feel…. They can also make a refreshing difference to your body odour! Trust me, try it 🙂

If you’re after something else, I also used to take Grants Chlorophyll- you can get it from the supermarket. It’s not organic through, it contains other additives and not a range of whole, natural ingredients like the Supreme Green Blend…. You’ll understand why I made the switch! 🙂

The next supplement I take daily is All Natural Probiotics

Again, I LOVE that this is ALL natural and so MINDFULLY and THOUGHTFULLY created and sourced….

This probiotic contains only the best Australian organic ingredients AND also contains PRE-BIOTICS – the food that the probiotics feed off.

Probiotics are a MUST for me these days… I’ve experienced FIRST HAND the difference they make to my hormone balance, my mental state AND of course my gut and digestive ease…. When I’ve run out and been slack about re-ordering I’ve NOTICED a significant difference!

For this reason I’m now always well stocked up! 🙂 It’s just an essential for me now that I cannot live without! 🙂

Made from Organic Brown Rice (an excellent source of insoluble fibre and vitamin E, B vitamins and minerals including iron and potassium), Organic Dried Sweet Potato (high in Vitamin C, folate, soluble fibre & beta-carotene), Organic Quinoa (an amino acid rich seed loaded with minerals including; manganese, magnesium, iron, copper and phosphorus. It contains all 9 essential amino acids with lysine and tryptophan in high amounts), Organic Molasses (it has high concentrations of minerals including iron, manganese, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, copper, zinc, selenium and other trace minerals), Organic Chia Seed (high in omega 3, fibre, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, potassium, iron and other trace minerals. It also B vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants), Organic Pumpkin Seeds (contain omega 3 fats and the minerals zinc, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, iron, copper and a good source of protein), Organic Linseed (high in essential fatty acids), Organic Ginger (a great source of vitamin C, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, iron, zinc, potassium and most of the B vitamins), Organic Spirulina– (very high in protein and B12 as well as the minerals iron, potassium, magnesium, sodium, phosphorus and calcium), Organic Raw Broccoli (contains vitamin B6, C and A, folic acid, calcium, iron, manganese and magnesium. It is also high in both soluble & insoluble fibre), Organic Amaranth (a gluten free Aztec grain high in amino acids, iron, calcium and magnesium), Organic Alfalfa Grass/Seed (a good source of Vitamin B1, B2, niacin, calcium, iron, and an excellent source of protein) and Organic Sunflower Seed Kernel (a good source of insoluble fibre)…..!!

All of these ingredients are naturally fermented by a method trademarked as flora ferm, dried and then made into a powder, creating a probiotic that is essentially a real food.

So you see why I LOVE and HIGHLY RECOMMEND this beautiful product! Give it a try and be sure to let me know what you think!

For now, these are the two products I want to share with you.

They’ve made a significant difference to my wellbeing whilst being on a restricted intake, and I can CONFIDENTLY vouch for their quality and effectiveness….

PLEASE NOTE : That if EVER I endorse a particular PRODUCT, please do NOT assume I endorse ALL products by the same brand…. This goes across the board…. I critique and endorse products INDIVIDUALLY 🙂 If you ever have queries about other products please inbox me! 

As I advise my 1:1 VIP clients, I do NOT recommend blindly just taking what ANYONE recommends…

Really TUNE IN and LISTEN to your body….

It can be harmful to just take what someone advises because it works for them

Even I have fallen victim to the “because Sarah Wilson said so” effect (remember the coconut oil!?!?) (BTW I have NOTHING against Sarah and a whole lotta respect!! I just know how many of us can simply follow what someone who we admire or trust says without really checking in with what’s right for us!)

ALWAYS the best way is to get individualised advice and guidance from a well-trained expert! We are as different as our fingerprints and ALWAYS changing!

If YOU are interested in a FREE Health Appraisal, you can contact me on [email protected] to request one. I make time for 2-3 of these a week.

OR if it speaks to you, right now I’m offering an incredibly LIMITED ONE-TIME offer which you can read about here….

Anyway, that’s all for now 🙂
