Can I share a secret with you?
Vitamins are more than popping a capsule.
Chances are you’ve bought a bottle of vitamins lately. Have you taken them?
Vitamins are easy to buy and hard to take. At least this has been my experience and
that of most of the clients that I work with.
Taking vitamins is a fabulous way to promote your health, help your digestion to
improve, increase your energy, and jack-up your overall vitality. So why do they sit
in our cupboards for months on end and never make it into our mouths? I’ve
identified a major block (for most people) to taking vitamins.
We don’t understand them.
Once you know what an actual vitamin or mineral is doing for your body, it makes it
a lot easier to take it in.
Understanding not only what a vitamin is doing for your body but also what foods
are naturally giving your body a vitamin boost generates ease with vitamin-intake as
well. I now know what vitamins and minerals are coming from my food, and which I
am missing. This information makes it much easier to take the liquid supplement I
now use as part of my morning routine. It’s important to have a balance. You really
are not doing your body a favor by eating non-nutrient food and then taking a
multi-vitamin everyday. It doesn’t make sense.
You should consider knowing the Top 5 vitamins. You can then make food choices
based on what type of vitamins and energy you are getting from your meal, a.k.a.,
what’s your fuel?

foods are going to give them to you:
