Why I take supplements?

Why I take supplements?

Common supplements include vitamins, minerals and herbal products. Individuals take these supplements to maintain or improve their health as well as make sure they get enough essential nutrients for a healthy life.

Our diets and lifestyle have changes so much over the years. For that reason, I feel that supplements are vitally important for the body to function optimally. I have always taken a mix of extras to ensure my body reaches optimal health; Vitamin C, Vitamin B complex as well as Collagen was the normal add-ons for me. Now Dear Body offer a Skin + Gut powder which ticks many of those boxes.

It could be tedious to take such a multitude of different items, that if I am being honest, I do sometimes forget. So, when you find that one product that contains all the essentials you need, it’s a win-win. Factors that influence your choice in brand to name a few could be convenience, results see as well as felt, taste, health benefits and price compared to quality.

What I enjoy about Dear Body is that you can take this powder in a variety of different ways to add to your diet. You can take the product with water (my preferred way), juice, in a smoothie, with yoghurt or ice lollies. I prefer to mix 15g (half recommended dose) of strawberry like powder once or twice per day. Purely because I prefer that taste and texture in my ¾ filled glass of ice-cold water (filtered water with 3 or 4 ice cubes). Mix well to dissolve all the little bits of powder (no need for a shaker) and consume. I like to take this as I wake up in the morning, followed by my workout routine. Your big bag of DEAR BODY would be a month supply. Thought I would mention, if you do any kind of calorie tracking, half a dose would be around 50 calories.

Dear Body, treats your gut health well as your skin health. An unhealthy gut can have a large influence on our overall health including the appearance of your skin. This can show up in several different ways such as; congestion, beak outs, redness as in inflammation, eczema and rosacea.

DEAR BODY contains several essential Vitamins such as Vitamin C that is essential for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. Including formation of collagen, the proper functioning of the immune system, wound healing including the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.

Vitamin B complex helps prevent infections and helps support or promote; cell health, growth of red blood cells, energy levels, good digestion, healthy appetite. Improves skin health such as texture and skin radiance.

Peptides and collagen are a major component of your skin - As you age, your body produces less of it. Collagen plays a role in strengthening the skin, as well as in elasticity and hydration. "Several studies have shown that collagen peptides or supplements containing collagen may help slow the aging of your skin by reducing wrinkles and dryness."

When your skin glows, you feel and look great!
