As I have told you a few weeks ago, I have completely changed my diet and started to eat healthy and become healthier. I’m proud to say that I am still on track, and that I still feel great! I feel my body being stronger and my immune system working better.
The past few weeks everyone around me has been hit by a nasty flu virus that is currently on the loose in the area where I live. I am the only one that didn’t get it, and I strongly believe that this is because of my healthy lifestyle.
Of course, adopting such a dramatic diet meant that my body didn’t receive all the nutrients and vitamins that it needed every day, so I started to take supplements.
And when SBR Nutrition has asked me if I wanted to try their liquid vitamins, I said yes, as I have never tried this type of supplements before.
About liquid supplements
My number one reason for advocating for liquid supplements over capsules is that they are very gentle on the stomach. We all (should) know how bad any types of pills are for your stomach! In order for your body to take all the nutrients and vitamins from a capsule supplement, your stomach needs to break it down and dissolve it. This raises the acidity levels and on long term, can harm you. I’ve been there, done that, it wasn’t nice! Even the so-called stomach protectors are bad for you because whilst they do lower the acid level and bring it to a neutral PH, they make your stomach unable to process whatever you eat, which leads to bad chemicals being released into your blood stream. Again, been there, done that, wasn’t nice.
Another advantage of liquid vitamins is that they are absorbed faster and have a slightly higher absorption rate than normal capsules. They are also easier to consume, because they come in liquid form and you only need a few drops a day.
Ever since I remember my parents forced calcium supplements on me because my body can’t seem to assimilate any of the Vitamin D from natural sources. I still remember how grossed I was by the taste of those supplements, as calcium + vitamin D comes wither in large chewable pills or in the form of powder which you need to dissolve in water and then drink. None of them tasted nice and when I turned 18 and left for uni, I stopped taking them. This led to very weak bones and nails, lot of headaches and back pain.
If you would have told me then that Vitamin D can taste nice, I wouldn’t have believed you. But now I know that Vitamin D can taste minty and leave a fresh sensation in my mouth.
A bottle of Vitamin D3+K2 can pretty much last you forever, as you only need one drop for you body’s daily need. There are over 1000 drops in one bottle.
Vitamin D3 and K2 work together to maintain your bones strong and healthy. Whilst vitamin D3 helps your body absorb calcium, the vitamin K2 maintains the bone mineral density. Not to mention that vitamin K2 is also a great cardiovascular protector by regulating the coagulation system in your blood. It does sound like a biology class, but it’s all about benefiting your body.
This was my first time hearing about the L-Theanine, so I did a bit of research to find out what exactly is it and what benefits does it have. I found out that L-Theanine is an amino acid extract from the green tea leaves that helps you relax and improve focus.
Being a freelancer means that I do a lot of things during the day and my close friends know that I am not the most organised person in the world. I start things only to abandon them if an email comes through and then start something else, leaving me with very few things finished at the end of the day.
It’s been a week since I have been taking the L-Theanine liquid supplement and I have noticed that my concentration has slightly improved. I take 2ml of product daily, which is 2 droppers (the numbered dropper is included in the pack), after my evening dinner. I have noticed that it also helps me sleep better.
I am not that keen on the taste – lemony, but it can also be dissolved in a bit of water. The product is all natural, vegan friendly and has non-GMOs in it.
Because I am taking the L-Theanine, I haven’t tried the Ashwagandha yet, as they have similar purposes of reducing stress. However, I did my research and I am looking forward to try it out when I finish the L-Theanine.
Ashwagandha has been used for centuries in the Ayurveda healing and studied for many years in modern medicine. It is a great aid for people who feel tired and fatigued all day. It also improves concentration and enhances your daily energy levels.
