what's supp? 🥤 my daily supplements & vitamins

"what kind of vitamins and supplements do you take?"

you might have seen me before on instagram sippin from a solo cup in the mornings before i workout and maybe you've wondered what i'm drinking? that is my tasty cocktail of vitamins and supplements! i struggle to swallow pills, so i take a vitamin-supplement combo in a liquid form. (the vitamins/supplements come in powder and i mix with water) it has taken me years to find the combo that works for me but i have been taking this for nearly 2 years now and i'm loving it. 

every morning, after a cup of water and a cup of coffee, i change into workout clothes and mix up this powerful concoction. it tastes like fruit punch and has everything i need for overall optimal health!

here are the exact supplements and vitamins that i take daily:

1. Sulfurzyme supports overall wellness by bolstering your joints, aiding your immune system, and supporting normal metabolic function, circulation, and bone, hair, and skin health. it's a powder form- just mix with water- but also comes in capsules.

2. Root'd Her Multi has 25 essential vitamins & minerals a woman's body needs every day with digestive probiotics, energizing organic superfoods & greens, PLUS hydrating electrolytes. gluten free, dairy free, caffiene free, soy free, vegetarian. powder form, mix with water, fizzes a little bit :)

3. Energize is a pre-workout drink formulated with key ingredients that are scientifically shown to increase energy and endurance, improve intense exercise performance, sharpen focus and reaction time, increase muscle power output, and delay exercise-induced muscle fatigue.

No artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives. powder form, mix with water, tastes like gaterade only less chemically.

5. Collagen (i like to take a collagen to keep my hair, skin, nails, and bones healthy. i definitely notice a difference when i take it consistently. these are the various kinds of collagen peptides i have taken and would recommend!)

the most important thing to keep in mind is even when i take all the best supplements and vitamins, i can’t out-supplement a bad diet and lifestyle. consistency in our diets and lifestyles have the biggest impact on our physical, mental, and emotional health. 

other things i do to take care of myself that work with my daily supplements and vitamins: 
-exercise every day
-get plenty of fresh air and sunshine 
-sleep 7-9 hours every night
-drink 50-60 ounces of filtered water 
-limit/avoid added sugar, processed foods 
-keep an attitude of gratitude and joy :) 

🥤 here's to optimal health and abundant life!
