Happy Thursday you guys,

if the last year has taught us anything it´s that your health is most important overall. With a world wide pandemic still going strong many people got sick and still aren´t recovered fully.
Even if you are a mindful and healthy eater you probably won´t get enough of the vitamins you should have for a healthy metabolism and strong immune system cause most of the processed foods or vegetables/fruit don´t have what it takes to help you out in this department.
Don´t get me wrong we try to eat as healthy as possible but sometimes you need support in certain areas of your live.
Supplements I am taking
First and foremost I am not a doctor and I have no medical knowledge therefore I am not recommending to take anything without talking to one. This is just an example what I take and what helps me stay as healthy as possible in these unsure times.
Vitamin C // Vitamin C is the classic, the mother of the vitamins. A few hundred years back and in some areas still Vitamin C was used to treat and prevent scurvy cause if you have a high shortage you teeth could fall out for example. Nowaday Vitamin C is used to protect cells and keeping them healthy, maintaining healthy skin and bones.
Vitamin D // Almost every adult has a shortage on Vitamin D which is definitely alarming for a country like Germany where we have access to everything. The body is able to absorb Vitamin D from certain foods like spinach, kale, soy beans and okras as well as from direct sunlight but still not as much as the human body would need to be satisfied. Vitamin D is important for your brain. It helps to lighten your mood but it will also support fertility plus taken together with calcium it helps to maintain strong bones and prevent diseases like osteoporosis.
Vitamin B6 // This also has been one of the vitamins I have taken since I found out I was pregnant. It is supposed to help with your energy level, boost your immune system and help with blood formation.
Zinc // Another great supplement. Zinc helps the immune system fight off bacteria and viruses. The body also needs zinc to make proteins and DNA, the genetic material in all cells. During pregnancy, infancy, and childhood, the body needs zinc to grow and develop properly.
Magnesium // I have been taking this since early in my pregnancy cause it had very bad ligament pain and taking magnesium three times a day helped a lot so I got very used to it and take it as well. Probably what helped to prevent sore muscles after starting to work out again but Magnesium itself has other great benefits too. It´s regulating blood pressure, supporting the immune system and helps with muscle and nerve function.
Selen // This is a new to me supplement I recently incorporated into my daily rations. It is known to help with thyroid function and protects your body from damage by oxidative stress. Selenium can also give you a great boost for your immune system and helps to prevent heart disease.
Omega 3 // Omega 3 or the fatty acid is known as the heart supplement. It can help prevent cardivasculare diseases and helps very well with inflammation. I have been using this for a while now but to be honest I hate how big the capsules are.
Pill Box is from amazon and it helps me stay on top of my daily doses.
