Supplements I Take
I get asked a lot about which supplements I take and which ones I recommend. This is currently my list. I know it can be confusing to know which supplements are high quality, which brand and which formula are the right ones to take. Standing in the supplement aisle can be overwhelming. It was for me. I've since found supplement websites that I trust and have certain doctors that I trust as well and know that they recommend only the highest quality supplements.
I will list the supplements and as well list the main reason I'm taking it. However, these supplements help support so much more in your body than the few things I will list. They're all amazing. Each supplement is linked to where I buy the product.
Please keep in mind that I do not take full doses of all of these supplements. Some of them I only take a drop, 1/8 of a capsule, or half a pill. My body cannot tolerate full doses but I am building up and slowly detoxing which will help me handle more.
As always, please consult your own healthcare provider when deciding what is best for you. I am not a doctor.

Lipid based formula to improve bioavailability. Is absorbed orally and is immediately absorbed into the lymphatic system. DIM helps metabolize estrogen and send it out the healthy C-2 detoxification pathway. This helps lower estrogen dominance and helps promote better detoxification and balanced hormones.
