My Daily Supplements

Having a busy lifestyle, we sometimes go for fast food, order pizza online or eat microwavewable food. I know these kind of ready to eat food are not healthy and don't have all the necessary nutrients that our body needs. That is why I make it a habit to take daily supplements as substitutes. I take them every single day after a meal. I even read about a famous Dr. Linus Pauling who encouraged people about his Vitamin C theory. I'm sure his name sounds familiar to you because he was the only one in the world to have won two times unshared Nobel Prizes (Chemistry and Peace). He used to take 10,000 mg of Vitamin C everyday. He died at the age of 93. Some people don't believe in the importance of vitamins but I do, simply for these reasons:
  • Glutathione's role as an antioxidant, detoxifier, and the possible reversal of malignant cells to healthy cells;
  • Vitamin C for a healthy immune system;
  • Vitamin D for healthy bone development;
  • Vitamin E for healthy skin and vital for proper nervous system function;
  • Fish Oil which contains Omega-3 fatty acids (good for the heart);
  • Flaxseed Oil which protects against certain cancers especially the common breast cancer incidence in women and prostate cancer for men;
  • Lecithin which is necessary for the renewal and maintenance of all cell membranes;
  • Calcium for healthy bones and teeth, and of course for osteoporosis prevention
