Hey Fit Crew!! Let me let you in on a little secret..put your multi-vitamins down. 👀 now before the vitamin brigade comes and tries to "teach me a new one"🙄 I'll just tell you based off of experience & well..facts. Most people don't need to take vitamin supplements and are able to get all the vitamins and minerals they need by eating a healthy, balanced meal plan. Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients, such as iron, calcium and vitamin C, that your body needs in small amounts to work properly.💪🏾 Okay, sooo if you were like me when I understood that concept, I said..okay wtheck can give me the minerals I need? 🤔 For my #alkalinelifestyle & #alkalinejunkies you understand that there are a few herbs that can do the trick. Obvious is #seamoss & #bladderwrack. 😍 For those who do not like the sea...🙃 you can try a few of the herbs listed in this image. #Chlorella is a type of algae that packs a big nutrient punch, as it's a good source of several vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. 😎 #seabuckthorn #phytonutrients are soooo bomb & can be purchased as an oil as well. These multiuse herbs can be used on skin, for digestion & more. 🙌🏾 Now before you get all "trashh the Vitamins Honey, fit queen zee said so" 🤣🤷🏾♀️ I have to throw on the disclaimer *CONSULT WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN IF YOU HAVE CURRENT MEDICAL CONDITIONS OR DEFICIENCIES BEFORE STOPPING ANY MEDS/VITAMINS* 😓 Okay, now that is out of the way..I will say this, MOST physicians who are not naturopathic physicians may not agree or to be frank understand your holistic choices, but that's okay. My PHYSICIAN didn't, but respected it. 🤘🏾she even compared my blood work from being on a carnivorous meal plan to a plant based & was astonished with my improvements in my iron. **pstt I used herbs for that** 🙏🏿 Listen👂🏾 I say all that to say...research your herbs & where they are sourced and incorporate them into your healthy living journey. It's never too late to be great!
