Supplements-

Do we really need them?

With thousands of supplements lining store shelves, it’s no wonder people are confused. Where do you start? Should you start? Do we even need supplements? Which of these pills and potions are legit, if any? Are the people that buy them just investing in really expensive pee? How does one know what to take??

The short answer is that yes, we do need supplements for a variety for many reasons:

  • soil and water has been depleted of nutrients
  • non-organic food contains fewer nutrients
  • your body needs nutrients to deal with the toxins that are present in our environment
  • nutrient absorption declines with age
  • exercise increases our need for certain nutrients

So why Young Living supplements?

Research has shown that before putting essential oils in MultiGreens, there was 42 percent blood absorption in 24 hours. After adding essential oils to MultiGreens, blood absorption increased to 64 percent in 30 minutes, and 86 percent in an hour. The conclusion was that the cells were now receiving nutrients that they had previously not been able to assimilate. So many of these supplements that we love are infused with essential oils, which help so much with absorption, plus we also get all the added benefits from the oils themselves! It’s truly amazing that we have such awesome supplements that we can use to support our bodies!

Where do we start?

There are so many supplements out there how do we even know where to start? Do you take them all? Or which one do you start with?

Pick a system! Where do you feel your weaknesses are? Where does your body need support? Digestive system? Circulatory system? Brain health? Bones and muscles? You know your body better than anyone else, so pick a system that needs support and start there.

Some people will notice a change right away and others may not. Supplements work in our bodies in subtle ways over time. Sometimes our bodies need to build up whatever we are lacking so consistency is key.

Not only is consistency a key but also having the right base as a start. There are a few supplements that can help the whole body function optimally and these are like the legs of your table- crucial to have a balanced life.

Oh, our Omega’s and all the healthy fats that we need for our brain!

Omegagize is a source of healthy fats, vitamin D, and CoQ10. It targets the heart, brain, eye, and joint health. This is a supplement rich in the nutrients needed to feed a healthy heart and brain. A starving brain and heart malfunction while proper nourishment can promote wellness at all stages of life. This is something that we all need. The biggest thing that to remember is the quality of this amazing fatty oil is also of the utmost importance.

Hair, skin, and nails!

Sulphurzyme is the ultimate hair, skin, and nails superpower! It is a unique combination of MSM, which is the protein-building compound found in breast milk, fresh fruits and vegetables, and Ningxia wolfberries. Together, they create a new concept balancing the immune system and supports every major function of the body. MSM has the ability to equalize water inside the cells, which is amazing for those who are in need of joint support.

If you have hair, skin or nails, this is a supplement that you should be taking because you are likely not getting enough of this compound. Weak and brittle nails, hair loss or hair that doesn’t grow or that isn’t healthy, joint that are painful and skin issues that really are a walking billboard telling us that we need more nutrition in this area. When you have skin that is super sensitive with the topical application of essential oil, this is another tall tell sign that your body is in need of this supplement. The main thing that sets this supplement apart from other MSM out there is not only that fact that it is combined with the Ningxia wolfberries but the quality and exceptional purity of the MSM. It is a pharmaceutical grade MSM that is light years ahead of the materials imported from Asia that you find on most store shelves. This is a supplement that is suitable for not only us but also our kids and pets.

All the good bacteria!

Fun fact- 80% of our immune system is in our gut. This is why supporting our body with a probiotic such as Life 9 or MightyPro is so important to our good bacteria and gut flora. It targets guts, our digestion, skin, brain and immune system. Life 9 is a high-potency probiotic that combines 17 billion live cultures from 9 beneficial bacteria strains that promotes healthy digestion, supports gut health, and helps maintain normal intestinal function for overall support of a healthy immune system. MightyPro is slightly different because it is a not only a probiotic but it is also prebiotic, meaning it feeds the bacteria that are being delivered to the digestive track- amazing! Remember that a healthy gut is a key to a healthy brain, immune, and skin health.

All the Antioxidants!

Who love’s their Ningxia?!?!? This is an amazing source of vitamins, antioxidants, nutrients and it targets our overall health, immune system, healthy blood sugar levels, energy, and so much more! Why is Ningxia Red so huge? We get worn out, our digestive systems get tired, our cells get dirty, and we need something we can assimilate quickly and easily to go to work. Thank you Ningxia Red! This is a powerful antioxidant supplement drink made from wolfberry puree, blueberry, plum, cherry, aronia, and pomegranate juices, grape seed extract and it contains Yuzu, Tangerine, Lemon, and Orange essential oils, stevia and vanilla extract. It supports immune function, liver function, and eye health and is reported to increase energy without harmful stimulants. Plus it has the highest antioxidant level on the S-ORAC scale, meaning that it protects our body from the dangers of free radicals and is a whole-food source of nutrients- filling in all of those little gaps and helping us to feel amazing!
