MY DAILY VITAMINS & SUPPLEMENTS
LIFESTYLE· Laura Leth
If you follow my vlog channel you’ve seen me mention these when my package with them first arrived back in december but after taking them for about a month and a half now I thought it was time to do a more ‘in depth’ post about what I take and why and whether or not I feel a difference yet.
All the following vitamins are from a brand called ‘Nu U Nutrition‘ that I found on Amazon while browsing through hundreds of vitamins to figure out what brand to get and after reading all the good reviews I decided for these ones. The prices are very good and they all have between 3-12 months supplies of pills depending on how many you take ♡
Omega 3 Fish oil – 365 capsules – £15.97
These are the ones I was recommended to take for the longest time from both doctors and family since I have bad joints in most of my body so they were the first to be added to my cart. These say to take 1-3 per day so ideally I would love to do 3 a day but these are pretty large pills so sometimes I only manage 1 or 2. The outside of the capsule is super smooth though so they slip right down with no problems and there’s no taste when taking them. I do however tend to get a gross aftertaste sometimes where I get fish taste that I’ve heard quite a few talk about, it only lasts for a few second though.
These I got to help with my joints (as they’re anti-inflammatory) and improve my heart health.

I’ve noticed less pains at night after taking these however I can’t say 100% that it’s thanks to the pills but I’m hoping it is so it’ll continue to get better the next months (:
I’ve also noticed my skin is less dry after taking these!
Daily Multi vitamins – 365 tablets – £16.97
These multivitamins have tons of different minerals and vitamins in them and they seem to have pretty much everything I need in here and the reviews were great so these were the next I added to my cart. I’ve always lacked vitamins I think since I don’t always eat the healthiest so it was important for me to find some good multivitamins to supplement my food intake with.
These I take 1-2 of per day and I’ve been feeling better since I’ve been taking them! More energy during the day (unless I work out) and I just love knowing that I’m giving my body some good stuff every morning when I take them.
I might start supplementing these with extra magnesium and Vitamin D I think.
Organic Turmeric and Curcumin – 365 capsules – £19.97
These were the ones I was most excited about as Turmeric and curcumin has so many amazing benefits for the body and brain! I have an article right here explaining 10 proven health benefits for you to read if you’re interested as it’s just too much for me to write myself.
I had to get these ones I saw they also helped with inflammation pains but once I started researching and found out they could help increase the antioxidant capacity in the body, lower risk of heart disease and possible help prevent cancer and brain diseases I was SOLD!
I currently take 1 of these per day but I might ask my doctor if it’ll be okay to take 2 as it says to consult a professional before taking more.
Maca is a rich source of minerals, vitamins, enzymes, amino acids (20 different kinds) and antioxidants and that alone as enough for me to be like, I need those in my body! After more research I found that Maca is good for physical and mental energy and could help with fatigue so I immediately added them to my cart since that’s my number one issue in my daily life. I’m always tired and never have any energy!
You can find more benefits here.
I take 2 of these everyday but I would highly recommend starting with 1 as I had so much trouble sleeping the first 3 weeks of taking them since they gave my body such an energy boots that lasted until I had to sleep so definitely start with one and allow you body to get used to it before adding another pill so you won’t have sleep trouble like I did!
I do feel these give me a good boost and I’ve been feeling less tired since taking them. On the days I forget to take them I tend to crash around 3-4 and be nap ready however when I take them I tend to have more energy and crash less (:
And those are the ones I’m currently taking guys!
I’m also thinking of buying the following ones and adding them to my routine:
(Hair & nail supplement)
(Can help sleep disorders/insominia, anxiety & depression and headaches)
Do you guys take supplements? If yes, which ones? ♡
