All you need is love and supplements?Posted: February 14, 2014 Filed under: Health | Tags: be well frank lipman, Gnosis chocolate, goop, supplements, The Chalkboard Mag, vitamins 1 Comment
Happy Valentine’s Day to you all. We aren’t big fans of Valentine’s Day at 800arrows, but it can turn a normal purchase like vitamins into a loving gesture toward spending a long, healthy life together. So that’s what we’ve done, today also happened to coincide beautifully with the Gnosis chocolate delivery, so hey look at us, chocolate on Valentine’s Day!
But the real gems today are the supplements we decided to experiment with. Our reasoning was after the cleanse we’d be feeling pretty darn good, would we notice a difference if we were taking supplements? A couple of my favorite places online did a run down on supplements, the basics that day to day we should consider taking, you can check it out here and here. After a little price comparison, we decided on the “Daily Dose” from Dr. Lipman. They come pre packed, 5 pills in a pack, you get your Vitamin D, fish oil, multivitamin, probiotic, if you’d like you can read all about it here. The verdict is we both feel great! Could it still be the effects of the cleanse, sure, but we have about two weeks with the supplements so hopefully we’ll get a more robust experience as things like pancakes make their way back into our life.
One concern right out of the box is the packaging with this particular brand we’ve chosen. The prepack makes things ridiculously easy, but whoa, it’s a lot of plastic! Also the packs are about 1 year old, I’m not really sure on the shelf life for this kind of thing, but these are things I’ll be looking into further when we decide if we like this addition to our lives.
As for the chocolate, you’ll have to wait a bit longer for the review, it’s for our 3:00 treat today!
Chocolate hugs and vitamins,
The secret to absorption of Vitamin D is to take it with your essential fatty acids.
When I had my last physical, the Doc said she had never seen anyone with enough vitamin D in their system, before my reading.
Vitamin D needs the fat to help the body absorb the D.
Sounds like the beginning of a song to me…..
