Which Supplements Should I Be Taking Daily?

Which Supplements Should I Be Taking Daily?


When I meet clients for the first time they will often tell me how many pills they pop each day.

I actually do think we need some form of supplementation for optimal health.

These are the pills I take:

1. A Multivitamin

A multivitamin a day ensures that you have all your essential micronutrients for the day. I like to take one each day to keep everything in check.

2. Omega 3

Omega 3 fatty acids are ESSENTIAL for the body, they are needed for optimal health and are not produced in the body so we need to get these from our food. Of course, you don’t want to eat fish every day so you need to take your omega 3′s in a pill or liquid form. These babies really help you get the glow.

3. Probiotic

Acidophilus and Bifidobacterium are two of the primary probiotic strains in the body. These “friendly” bacteria help maintain a beneficial balance of flora in our intestine supporting immune health and intestinal function. These days we strip our body of good bacteria due to excess sugar, stress, alcohol and the pill. We need to put back in probiotics to balance out our gut bacteria.

Recently, I’ve been taking Inner Me Daily 4 Me which supplies all the above plus some added antioxidants which we all know will get you the glow.

4. Vitamin D

Now summer is here at the minute and, if you have been in the UK, we’ve actually been enjoying a tropical affair. However, we need to supplement our buddies now that autumn is creeping in. Vitamin D regulates the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body. This keeps your beautiful bones burly and your teeth strong and healthy. Without adequate Vitamin D your bones can become thin and weak. Vitamin D supports the immune system, normal muscle function and cell growth.

I love this one

    I can’t advise with supplements, best to consult a nutritionist. I know that maca and seaweed are good for hormones from a food perspective though. Hope this helps x

    Hi Madeleine, I’ve seen a lot on probiotics recently as I’ve been having issues with my immune system and was prescribed antibiotics. However I wondered what you thought of prebiotics and if this is something we should be taking too. I’m not sure whether taking a probiotic contradicts taking an antibiotic. Would love to hear your thoughts on this.

      I take BioKult probiotics. I would always suggest asking your doctor where it’s ok to take whilst taking antibiotics. Also make sure you read the instructions on the packet of both antibiotics and probiotics x

    I take calcium carbonate pills, seven seas and vitmain D pills (once a week) And I eat 3 meals and drink jumbo protein powder once a day as I’m trying to build some muscles because I only have fat :(
