First, through my journey to a healthier me, I started to recognize the importance of fiber in one's diet. From apples to steel cut oats, to Fiber One cereal, I've become somewhat of a fiber junkie. To ensure that I always had enough to keep me goin, I started to take Psyllium Husk Capsules. I would take about four per day and noticed a difference right away. I ran out of these and waited a while to re-order, and let me tell you, I noticed a difference almost immediately.
Next, I was (am) eating a very low fat diet and was told that I needed to supplement with oils, specifically Essential Fatty Acids. I also take four gelcaps a day and noticed a difference after about two weeks. My hair and nails were shiny, thicker and grew like crazy! My manicurist also noticed. She even asked me what I was taking because she couldn't believe the difference. I also think these make a big difference in my complexion.
B introduced me to Vitamin B-Complex. I'm still not exactly clear what the exact benefit is, he claims it gives him energy and boosts immunity. I also read it may speed up metabolism and promote health in general. So I signed on.
I am finishing off my Costco-brand multi vitamin and then I will try another. Quite a few have been recommended. I buy all of my vitamins online at Vitacost.com. The prices are pretty amazing, and with an online coupon code I've gotten free shipping almost every time. Pretty sweet deal!
Anyone else have vitamin/supplements they've found helpful?
