Many clients ask me about what supplements I take to maintain my health. I have allergies to so much medication that I need to be careful about my supplements as well. I only use these whole food ones with no or as few additives, binders, or fillers as possible.
Note: I love the Garden, Orchard, and Vineyard blend and take them daily. My energy is through the roof! Juice Plus+ helps you keep your life in balance by helping you keep your diet in balance.

Note: As a Certified Health Coach and a healthy living blogger, it was only natural that essential oils fell onto my radar. On a quest to eliminate toxins from our home, like those found in personal care and cleaning products, I was looking for natural ways to relieve some common complaints we were experiencing from our personal care products, plus seasonal and pet allergies. Now, I’ll admit it…I’m addicted to Essential Oils and they have changed my life for the better. How? I know longer feel like I’m a chemical hot mess! With Essential oils you can make all kinds of Do-It-Yourself products that are chemical free.
Note: The powerhouse of all anti-oxidants, Astaxanthin provides support for healthy joints and tendons, eye and brain health, immune function, healthy cardiovascular, healthy skin, increased energy levels and anti-aging through cellular health. Make sure you only buy natural, not synthetic Astaxanthin. This is natural and is the real deal. It protects the body from oxidation, the same process that eventually turns iron to rust, and causes the human body to deteriorate over time. Unlike most other anti-oxidants, Astaxanthin can NEVER become a pro-oxidant in the body. This product really works great!
Note: Instead of three 4 mg pills, now you have the option of just taking one in this 12 mg dosage, making it so much easier. The powerhouse of all anti-oxidants, Astaxanthin provides support for healthy joints and tendons, eye and brain health, immune function, healthy cardiovascular, healthy skin, increased energy levels and anti-aging through cellular health. Make sure you only buy natural, not synthetic Astaxanthin. This is natural and is the real deal. It protects the body from oxidation, the same process that eventually turns iron to rust, and causes the human body to deteriorate over time.
Note: I chose Garden of Life Vitamin D3 because it’s different from any other vitamin D nutritional supplement available today. In following with the Vitamin Code philosophy, RAW Vitamin D3 is a whole food vitamin D complex that is gluten- and dairy-free with no binders or fillers, and contains live probiotics and enzymes. More importantly, Vitamin Code RAW D3 is a raw source of vitamin D3. All other brands give me a reaction and I just can’t take them. So, for me, I started taking the 2,000 IU dose until I was sure I could take them. Now, I take the 5,000 IU dosage and still have no allergies or reactions. I love this brand just for that reason alone!
Note: I worry about too many chemicals in the body and with this brand, you don’t have to. Great product here! And, there’s no binders, fillers, or anything you need to be leery of. I love this Vitamin D. No stomach aches even on an empty stomach. most people don’t know that they must take Vitamin D supplements in order to maintain an optimal level of Vitamin D. Since the body doesn’t produce it, you can only get it from the sun or vitamins. Because we’re not out in the sun as much as we need, especially during the winter months, most health care practitioners are recommending taking a supplement. This one is a whole food supplement!
Note: I chose Garden of Life Gluten-Free Support as it supports healthy digestion of gluten and dairy containing foods when I splurge, provides essential nutrients that may be deficient in a gluten-free diet, and it supports gut-related immune system function. This product is raw, uncooked, untreated, unadulterated, no binders or fillers, no chemical isolates or synthetic nutrients. It’s a whole food with living nutrients as nature intended with live probiotics and enzymes.
Note: CoQ10 is a fat-soluble, antioxidant and electron-transporting coenzyme that is well known for its role in the respiratory chain, the production of cellular ATP, and as an effective scavenger of oxygen-free radicals. CoQ10 supports cardiovascular system health, cellular energy production and antioxidant protection while providing energy with zero customer upset! I love Garden of Life products and this one is a real winner. It is a vegan source and you feel good taking it and get the results to help your body in its quest to keeping you healthy. I worry about too many chemicals in the body and with this brand, you don’t have to. Great product!

Note: Stress, it’s everywhere! Magnesium is one of the most important basic nutrients that power our bodies and is required for more than 300 biochemical reactions. Due to nutrient-deficient soil and fast-paced lifestyles, few of us (estimated at less than 20 percent) get sufficient magnesium in our diets. Add this powder to warm or cold water, let fizz, stir. Add to hot or cold beverages, or make it like a cup of hot tea. Works like a charm for me when I’m stressed! Try Cherry, Orange, Lemon, or Raspberry Lemon.
Note: Turmeric is an ancient remedy that has been used for thousands of years. Turmeric can be used to ease joint and arthritis pains, decrease inflammation, and other aches and pains. I use Turmeric and Black Pepper in my Going Green Shakes every morning. But, when I travel, I also take this supplement to boost my immunity. This brand is organic, plus it has Black Pepper in it needed for the Turmeric to be absorbed in the body better. The bottom line is turmeric is a versatile plant with medicinal and culinary uses. Turmeric benefits are really extensive and hardly any side effects have been known. Read my article here on the Health Benefits of Turmeric!

Note: I know! I know! You think I’ve really gone off the deep end but wait and hear me out. Grass fed Liver Supplements is the best thing you can do for your body, unless you can eat grass fed liver. I can’t! I really tried. Desiccated liver helps promote overall health, boosts energy, the immune system, metabolism, improves digestion, respiratory strength & helps maintain healthy cholesterol. Just don’t smell it because it really stinks!
Note: ok, let’s put this out there, sometimes we all could use some help in this department. Here’s what I found, if you need gentle, natural relief of constipation, this has a gentle laxative effect of senna with the digestive benefits of papaya leaves and centaury herbs. There’s also anti-spasmodic benefits of calendula and caraway, anti-gas benefits of peppermint leaves, parsley and anise, and the mild diuretic benefit of dandelion leaves with the relaxing benefit of peach tree leaves.
