As a holistic health counselor and a relatively healthy eater (yes, I eat ice cream and can be seen eating french fries), I take supplements every day. The reason for this is because despite eating a healthy American diet, it is virtually impossible to get all the vitamins and nutrients our bodies need.
In a new weekly series that will launch on Saturday, November 28th, Iâ€™m going to feature specific vitamins and provide an overview as to why you need it, what it does for your body and where you can get it.
More and more people are deficient and with busy schedules you can start to feel even more run down especially heading into the holiday season.
Here aÂ couple of tips to get you started:
1) Eat whole foods like grains, fruits, vegetables and nuts.
2)Â Take a multi-vitamin, but consult with your doctor or nutritionist first.
3) Drink plenty of water throughout the day.
4) Start your day with a wholesome breakfast.
Tune in every Saturday through January 2, with the series kicking off November 28th!
