Supplements and More Nutritional Stuff

Vitamins and Nutrients

There are many theories about vitamins. Some studies say they do nothing. Some say that a good vitamin will improve your health. You can buy vitamins for very little, or you can spend as much as a car payment on your monthly packs. So, what do you do? I’m not a doctor… for all I know, vitamins do nothing for you… and yet I take them. Maybe I’m crazy, but I do feel like I’m doing something or my health when I supplement, and that’s what they are, supplements. I don’t use them to replace nutrition and at some point my goal is to ease out of them, but for now…. Here’s what I do know…. I won’t waste my money on the cheap stuff. I lean towards liquid capsules, because they absorb better, or powdered capsules, because of the same reason.  I know that I’ve read too many articles talking about undigested vitamins being in water treatment facilities… so I like to believe that a liquid concentrate or a powder will have an easier time absorbing. Vitamins from trusted sources are the only option for me. I don’t need big fancy labels, I need the flash to be in research, labs etc, not in labels and branding. Like I said… I am no doctor, and I honestly don’t know if vitamins work or not… but I’d rather go for quality and supplement the nutrients I may need, than rely wholly on food. That being said, my goal is to ease out some of the supplements I am taking. While I work on my health, I am supplementing where I see the need. Some of the ‘needs’ are because I am working on gut health and trying to get my thyroid and liver on track, so the vitamins I take…

Probiotic Oral Health Care

March 20, 2021

I have a terrible fear of Dentists. I just hate that scary permanence of drilling into the only teeth you get, damaging the only bones in your body that don’t just heal. I had a dentist that I loved and trusted. Him and his loving family left the states and moved to another country to…

The Last Vaccine I’ll Ever Have

March 14, 2021

Anyone who knows me knows that I had shingles.  I’m an open book… I don’t keep anything to myself.  *Shock* Although… for the record, Shingles is a stupid and ugly name and as someone who has installed roofing… I hate the term.  So, I have renamed MY shingles to “sparkles”… mostly because I like things…
