Vitamin List

The list of vitamins and schedule of their intake is based on the suggestions of the lifestyle blogger I follow. Since I did not develop my own systematic approach to vitamin intake yet, I decided to temporarily adopt the system offered by someone whose opinion I trust. That said, in few months’ time, I plan on doing extensive blood test in order to evaluate relevance of this schedule for my particular case.

This homeopathic supplement helps the body to repair itself. That being said, it works when healthy   lifestyle habits are consistently being followed. It works in addition to the vitamins and minerals base which is listed above
Vitamin D       Vitamin D is incompatible with Vitamin E. As such, it could be ingested when taking a break from Vitamin E

 

Aloe Vera Alternative to vitamins when taking a break / travelling Aloe Vera Juice Dosage and duration of Aloe Vera Juice ingestion depends on the concentration of the juice. Follow the directions provided by the manufacturer

 

 

  • Vitamin brands

I was suggested following brands with solid base product formulations: Solgar; Solaray; Vit’all+; Doctor’s best; Source Naturals’ MRM. Biocyte would be a more premium brand among the ones suggested to me

 

  • Vitamin ingestion

It might be fair to say that most of us think a lot more about eating foods than about digesting them. That being said, unless the body is efficiently breaking down and effectively absorbing the nutrients, we do not get all the benefits of the food we consume even if our diet is full of fruits, vegetables, fresh salmon, organic meat and quinoa. Part of the reason of poorly digested food resides with our poor chewing habits. Taking the time to chew the food (30 – 40 times) activates the enzymes in the mouth and lets the brain recognize the nutrients in order to digest, access and direct them appropriately. How do our chewing habits relate to vitamins ingestion? Well, the efficiency of vitamins consumed in a pill shell is said to be drastically lower than the efficiency of the vitamin pills that are chewed with food / dissolved in your mouth before swallowing since the body can better recognize / direct the vitamins.

 

  • Water balance

The effect of dietary supplements (minerals and vitamins) on kidney health depends on an individual’s underlying issues and on the supplements taken. This is why it is important to consult with the doctor and do your due diligence in understanding the products before embracing the vitamin world. Whatever is the case, it is extremely important to consume a minimum of 1.5 L of water a day in order to ensure proper work of kidneys.
