Whilst I like to eats a lot of food for nutrients, I do enjoy me a supplement or two and TOMORROW Whole
Paycheck Foods is hosting a 25% off supplement sale. Which makes it almost like any normal supplement you would buy.
Here are a few of my favorite things (which are indeed affiliate links to amazon just FYI if you are not going to make it into Whole Foods). I highly suggest you check out the sale as you continue to stock your ingredients to throw in your caldron.
Sale is Friday August 15th my friend
Cod Liver Oil / Butter Blend (my favorite is NOT available at Whole Foods)
If you take one supplement and only one supplement the rest of your life, pay for this. Everyday. In Wubbas bottle and in my mouth goes Cod Liver Oil. Not for the faint of heart but not terrible. This is my favorite brand as I believe it is the most highly bioavailable and fermented to increase and preserve the natural vitamin content. Great source of Omegas and fat soluble vitamins.
This brand of cod liver oil is harvested naturally with no heat/bleaching/deodorizing/filtering providing a natural vitamin A and D powerhouse, and butter oil taken specifically from cows during the spring when the grass is most nutritious for the most ‘activator x’ which I believe is now known as vitamin k2. It provides a whole range of natural vitamins and fats in a food form, which is much more effective than the synthetic supplements made in labs.
Tera’s Grass-fed Whey or Source Organic Whey (I don’t believe they carry the later at Whole Foods).
I love some grass-fed whey protein now and then if I am on the go and need a quick smoothie hit. Or a healthy dessert alternative.
B-12 Vitamins (Carried at Whole Foods, ask them what the source is)
If you do not get these from grass-fed beef, lamb, salmon or sardines (blegh) a good vitamin may help. Cough. Cough. That time of month, these babies help take the edge off and give me some good energy. Great overall mood and energy booster.
NRG Matrix (carried at a few Whole Foods stores)
Yes I used to work for them. When I need a boost of energy, this is still my go to cold beverage. NRG Matrix is a powerful blend of 8 medicinal mushrooms with antioxidant and organic botanicals that give you energy, helps you focus, gives you an immune boost ANNDD helps you recover. HOLLER. Super Food Energy Drink.
Critical Care Matrix (not carried at Whole Foods)
Dude. This is a radical blend of mushrooms. I can say it now that I do not work for the company, if you know anyone who needs support with their immune system, dose them up on this mix. Whenever I feel like I may be getting sick, I load up on these shrooms. Read more.
Gelatin (Not sold at Whole Foods)
This form gels and needs to be hydrated, this form you can just add to anything but will not gel.
Life changer. Amazing for bone, joint and gut health. ::READ HERE::
Home slice say what? Yes garlic. This is a handy option to not ruin your breath but give your immune system and metabolism and handy boost. Great when you are sick and handy if you are looking to char a few extra calories now and again. Rumor has it garlic has amazing heart health benefits to it as well. Do your research nugget!
Minerals! Flake form or drink form. (Not sure if Whole Foods has it!)
So amazing for your bath tub or for foot soaks. Most of us are low in magnesium and these lovelies help restore it. I add 1/4 of a cup to all of Wubba’s baths as well.
I also like to drink my magnesium as it seems to put me in a much better mood. Some say lack of magnesium can actually lead to depression. Lame. Drink up buttercup.
Last but not least. Probiotics.
This is one of the best brands I have personally tried and I am not sure if they carry this brand at Whole Foods. Probiotics are great for gut health and your immune system in general. Hubs and I and Wubbas take these everyday.
Bio-Kult is a unique probiotic with a high concentration of 14 strains of beneficial bacteria. Bio-Kult is the recommended probiotic for those following the Gut and Psychology Syndrome Diet and was formulated by a team of doctors including Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride. The human gut contains trillions of bacteria, comprising over 400 species. The majority are beneficial but some can adversely effect the body’s own defenses. You are exposed every day to hostile bacteria through food and drink. To counterbalance these invaders, you need to ensure a healthy level of “beneficial” bacteria. The healthy level of good bacteria in the gut can be reduced by factors such as poor diet, antibiotics, foreign travel, stress, aging, and infection. A convenient way of maintaining the healthy balance in the gut is to use a probiotic. Probiotics were first scientifically identified as being helpful by Dr. Metchnikoff, a Nobel Prize winner working at the Pasteur Institute in Paris in 1907. Bio-Kult, an advanced broad spectrum probiotic, was developed by a team of doctors, nutritionists, and scientists. Bio-Kult contains 14 strains of beneficial bacteria including Bacillus subtilis, a catalase-positive bacterium commonly found in soil. This bacteria is able to tolerate extreme environmental conditions. Bio-Kult also contains L. Acidophilus, L. Casei, L. Delbruekii.bulgaricus, L. Delbruekii.lactis, L. Helveticus, L. Plantarum, L. Rhamnosus, L. Salivarius, B. Breve, B. Bifidum, B. Infantis, B. Longum, and S. Thermophilus in cellulose base.
