I am a self-proclaimed vitamin queen! I have been taking supplements for as long as I can remember and love learning and implementing new ones to my ever-growing routine. I opt for high quality ingredients, vegan-capsules (because why do we need any kind of animal by-product in our vitamins), and ones that are infused with liposomes.
Liposomal supplements offer a nutritional delivery system with rapid uptake and effective delivery into cells. Liposomes are highly efficient in terms of facilitating antioxidant delivery, and because they are prepared from natural phospholipids, they are biocompatible and nontoxic.
Over the years I have learned which supplements work best for my body. It’s all about research, and trial and error, but to limit that, feel free to consult with a physician prior to taking. I have divided the supplements I take into three categories: ones I take on a daily basis, ones I cycle in and out, and ones I use on a as-need basis.
