Let’s face it, we all (or almost all of us) have areas where we struggle in the nutrition department. And have you noticed how much your body’s needs have changed since becoming a mom? I know I have.
Even with a well balanced diet we likely aren’t getting all of the supplements we need. So, taking time to figure out what additional vitamin and supplement support you need to be your best, can be well worth it. I promise, your body will feel much better when you take care of it inside as well as out.
I have a wonderful friend who is a nutritionist. I’ve spent time working with her to create a supplement plan that fits my needs. I do understand not everyone can afford an appointment with a nutritionist, but if you can I do recommend it. Best part is, you don’t even have to leave your house, because you can meet over video conferencing, and/or fill out surveys online. These virtual tools can help a specialist come up with a plan that is right for you.
Did you know not all supplements are created equally? I had heard of this when I was younger, but I didn’t understand how that was true. After taking some time to learn I now understand it. And after taking better quality supplements for over almost a year now, I can really feel the difference. I am not a nutritionist, so I cannot explain it in depth, but as a nurse I can say that efficacy of medications, vitamins, and supplements is important. We need to have something that is formulated well to feed our bodies better.
When you are consistently taking vitamins and supplements your body needs, you give it an added healthy boost. You will begin to feel better, and after more time you will feel even better yet. By taking the time to treat your body well through adequate nutritional support you will find yourself taking on your days with more zest and less Mombie status. Believe me when I say, if I forget my morning vitamins, I cannot come out of my sleepy Mombie slump all day.
You can start simple, if you just need a start. Everyone can use a little Vitamin D, even when living in a sunny place. And Vitamin B6, or folic acid, is very important for any woman, pre and post-menopause. Both of these will help boost your mood and help you to function and feel more alert. Vitamin C is great for promoting health and avoiding getting sick. Then there are so many variations to add onto this as you can learn more and hopefully consult a nutritionist.
You may not even realize how much of a slump you are in. Or how much you need vitamin support, until you get started. You will feel so much better, I promise!
