My Best Supplements for Women Trying to Clean Up Their Lifestyles

by | Aug 11, 2021 | Dieting Tricks | 0 comments

This post is going to be my list of some of the best supplements for women that I’ve tried and that I think can be helpful for easing into a cleaner lifestyle.

Please don’t take this as a doctor’s advice. I’m a doctor and a home baker, but I am not in any way a medical expert and can’t afford your lawsuits, so please talk to a medical expert before trying any of these!

How I Chose my Best Supplements for Women

When I say that I think something is one of the best supplements for women, it’s because it’s a product that is available, affordable, and makes claims based on science. I only like products that have research behind their ingredients and that don’t make claims that some kind of miracle will happen by using the product. My focus is on overall nutrition and nourishing the body for better overall function.

These best supplements for women are the types of products that will help to support healthy lifestyle changes, not claim to replace those good habits altogether.  So, as I lead a less sedentary lifestyle eat better overall, these products help to fill in some of the gaps where I know my body could do even better.

My Best Supplements for Women Focused on Self-Care

The following are my top choices so far. I’m sure I’ll be adding to this list, so if you follow me on Facebook, you’ll stay up to date with any of those changes. I won’t be including the diet pills I’m taking on this list.  I’ve talked about that in my post about slow weight loss, so it doesn’t need to be covered here.

1 – Immune System Support

I think it’s obvious why I would be drawn to an immune system support supplement right now.  Currently, my top option is a capsule called IMMUNZ by Intechra Health Inc. I’ve tried a couple of their products before and like that they are an American company that develops its products here and manufactures them in a US facility. Their website clearly spells out all the research behind all their ingredients, which is also very helpful.

2 – Omega Fatty Acids

I had stopped taking omega supplements for a while because I hated the fishy burps the salmon oil was always giving me. It was gross having a fish taste in my mouth all day.  But the Omega Complete supplements from Jamieson are made with krill oil and they don’t do that.  So, these are back on my list for the best supplements for women.

3 – Vitamin D3

Every single time I go to my doctor’s office, she always asks if I’m taking vitamin D3.  She recommends the liquid drops the most, but I find those very messy, and I don’t feel like I’m getting the same precise amount with each dose.  So, I prefer the Webber Naturals Extra Strength Vitamin D softgels instead.

4 – Eye Health Pills

There are eye issues all over my family. We all wear glasses. My mother has age related macular degeneration. My grandfather had glaucoma.  You name it and it’s in my gene pool. So, I’m doing my best to keep up my eye health by giving my eyes the right nutrition to be at their best. I’ve chosen VISIPRO 20-20 for my daily vision support. Every one of the ingredients has been clinically studied, and I feel good telling my optometrist that I nearly never forget to take them.

Overeating Doesn’t Cause Obesity, but Your Food Choices Do

Overeating Doesn’t Cause Obesity, but Your Food Choices Do

So, it turns out that overeating doesn’t cause obesity. There’s been a lot of new research out there recently that has absolutely blown my mind. Holly recently blogged about how some pesticides can hold back weight loss so eating organic foods might actually give you an advantage. I recently read (and tweeted about) how aging doesn’t slow your metabolism as previously believed. Now, research is showing that it’s definitely not the amount we eat that causes us to gain weight!

What is Metabolism? It’s Not an Organ, It’s a Process

What is Metabolism? It’s Not an Organ, It’s a Process

What is metabolism? If you are even remotely like me, then you thought it was a part of your body. I didn’t think it was a specific organ or anything, but I thought it was a system. Like the circulatory system. I thought there was something like a metabolic system.  Turns out, nope.  It’s not a thing at all.  That’s why the question was worded that way in the title without a “the”.  It’s a process.  It’s something your whole body does, right down to each individual cell

The Connection Between Estrogen and Exercise

The Connection Between Estrogen and Exercise

It’s not even slightly shocking to me to hear that hormones play a role in physical activity and that estrogen and exercise are linked.  As a woman, the link between various hormones and our lifestyles can often be more than obvious.  They influence every part of the way our bodies function.
