Four Vitamins I Take Daily (Especially During The Holidays)
Back in October, I told you about 3 things I added to my wellness routine. They have made a huge difference in how I feel. Today I’d like to tell you about the four vitamins I take daily. These four core vitamins are so important to me and my health that I seldom miss a dose. They are especially important during the busyness of holidays because they help support my immune system. Let’s face it, we all need help in that department especially with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
Since it is the holiday season, let’s get right to it. Here are the four vitamins I take daily:
Vitamin B-12 is essential for cellular energy production in the body. I don’t know about you guys but I need all the energy production I can get! Vitamin B-12 is also essential for red blood cell formation, proper nervous system function and for maintaining a healthy homocysteine level (important for cardiovascular health).
My parents were huge advocates of vitamins way back in the 1970’s so I’ve been taking vitamin C since I was a kid. Vitamin C helps protect your body against those nasty free radicals (free radicals are cells that can damage healthy tissue). Vitamin C is also essential for collagen production and the absorption and retention of iron in your cells. Because Vitamin C plays such a critical role in fighting free radicals, I always stock up whenever I’m at Walmart. Their everyday low prices on Nature Made® vitamins and supplements is just plain awesome. It makes me want to pull an Oprah, ” here’s a bottle for you, and you, and you too!”
Vitamin D3 is a hard-working supplement. Not only does it help support the immune system but it also helps support bone, teeth, and muscle health. Basically, it’s like the Superman of the vitamin world. There are other forms of Vitamin D on the market but my doctor told me a long time ago that the body prefers the D3 version so that’s the one I buy and use. I also stick with the Nature Made® brand because it’s the #1 Pharmacist Recommended brand for many key dietary supplement categories.*
In order to get my daily dose of Biotin, I take Nature Made® VitaMelts Fast Dissolve Hair-Skin-Nails formula in Strawberry Lemonade formula. There’s no chalky aftertaste and it dissolves quickly. If you’re not familiar with Biotin, it’s actually a vitamin from the B family. I remember when it was called vitamin H (during college in the 90’s). Anyway, I take Biotin because it helps promote the health of my skin, hair and nails by nourishing cells throughout the body. I call this my “please make me look younger” vitamin. LOL
So there you have it, the four core vitamins that I take every day. If you’d like to keep yourself healthy during the holiday season and beyond, consider Nature Made® vitamins and supplements. They are an easy, convenient way to help your body get the nutritional support it needs every day, whether it be to support bone health, immune health or energy metabolism (helping convert food into energy).†
