Important Note: Every person is different in what they need in regard to nutritional supplements, so I encourage you to speak to your physician or dietician about your specific personal needs. They’re the experts, afterall. Below is my story of my personal supplement intake.
I’ve taken my share of vitamins and supplements over the years, and I really think it helps me to fulfill the daily requirements and to make me feel great in general!
While I’d like to get the majority of my nutrients through food, being the picky eater that I am, there are a lot of things I know that I don’t get enough of. Example: Omega 3s are a little tough to come by when you’re not a fish/seafood fan.
Every day before I go to bed, I take my vitamins, and thought I’d give you a glimpse at my regimen.
Multivitamin – When I started Jenny Craig, this was something that my consultant was adamant about. With Jenny, you can either take a supplement or eat one of their supplement bars. In the beginning I ate the bars, but they didn’t really agree with my stomach. Now, I take a women’s one a day vitamin (I choose the Target brand) to make sure my multivitamin needs are met.
Omega 3′s - I don’t eat seafood, but I know how important Omega 3 can be to a healthy body. Because it’s not going to show up in my diet, I take a supplement for Omega 3. Also, as someone who has had Lasik and suffers from Dry Eye Syndrome, Omega 3s have been prescribed by my opthamalogist to help with my dryness.
Vitamin C – Um… have you heard about this season’s flu epidemic? Being a frequent traveler, I started increasing my vitamin C intake during the winter/cold/flu season, and I’ve continued on with it. I rarely get sick, and I have to believe that my vitamin C regimen is playing its part.
Calcium – While I used to love milk when I was a child, milk spoils in my fridge before I have a chance to drink it. I’m not a fan of yogurt… and sour cream is pretty rare. Cottage cheese is non-existent… and I really only eat SO much spinach. All that being said, I really focus on supplements for daily calcium requirements.
My grandmother had osteoporosis as she aged, so I know it runs in my family. I don’t want that to happen to me, so I’m taking preventative measures! And, I’ve learned a new way to get my calcium on recently…
Adora Calcium reached out to me before the holidays to offer me an opportunity to try their calcium disks, and I took them up on it! If you haven’t heard of Adora before, you’re in for a treat. They offer CHOCOLATE DISKS that can be used to reach your daily requirements for calcium!!!
The chocolate supplements come in two flavors: Milk and Dark. While I am usually a HUGE dark chocolate fan, the milk chocolate is the star amongst these two, if you ask me!
Oh, and they legitimately taste like GOOD chocolate. I’d compare them to a Hershey’s Miniature bar, but creamier. SO GOOD! Each disk clocks in at 30 calories, but is so worth it! Who knew you could satisfy your sweet tooth while taking your daily dose??
Each disk contains up to 50% of the daily value of calcium plus Vitamin D3 and magnesium for optimal absorption. Here’s a few more fun facts about Adora:
- High Quality USP-grade calcium carbonate, vitamin D3, and magnesium
- Antioxidants from all-natural premium chocolate
- Only 30 calories to support weight loss goals
- A smooth, easy to digest consistency
- No Artificial Sweeteners
- Regulated by the FDA
I’m pretty sure my evening vitamin intake is going to look a little more like this in upcoming weeks. What a treat!
