OK, so let’s talk vitamins.
Do you take them?
I feel like I should. It’s so hard to sort out what to take.
I take Lorna Vanderhaeghe MULTIsmart daily, mainly because I do not eat 5-10 servings of fruits and veggies a day, like I should, and I like the colour of the bottle. It like them, but you have to take a lot of them. I look like I’m 85 years old with all of my pills! But I like the formula. Some multivitamins make me feel nauseous but this one is a winner.
I’m going to start taking her IRONSmart and ADRENAsmart again since my hemoglobin and ferrutin counts are very low and I’m basically the poster girl for what her adrenal support pill is supposed to help. I’ve had them in the past and they are both winners.
My eye guys have told me to take Vitamin C (1000 mg) and Systane brand Omega-3s to help my eyes with healing post-surgery. Now, I’m not sure that the cure for LASIK-caused decentered ablation, coupled with a less-than-acceptable PRK enhancement can be helped with vitamins, but Omega 3s and Vitamin C are both no harm, no foul supplements, so I take them as instructed.
I take magnesium when I want to have a good night’s sleep. I also take an epsom salts bath for the same reason.
I take Viviscal when I remember because I’ve read that it gives you nice hair.
I take Biotin when I remember because I’ve read that it give you nice skin.
Someone told me to take GABA because it makes you less anxious. And when I hear the name, I think of Yo Gabba Gabba, which is the one children’s show that did not drive me insane when my kids were little. But it gave me an allergic reaction (the pill, not the show.) Besides, the person who told me to take it seems chronically anxious, so, you know, there’s a credibility issue there.
I wish there was something to take to give me my full lips back. They were always my best feature – my one beauty – and age has taken them away. I feel like Jo in Little Women, when she sold her hair.
But alas, for those, I’d have to turn to the doctor in Stepford who will fill them full of plastic…
On the weekend, I road tripped it to The Abnormal Beauty Company’s Distillery District shop (they happen to be located near Cluny, aka the best croissants in town) and in addition to the cheap Deciem products I love, they sell beauty potions to drink. They sell a line of drinkable supplements branded as Fountain. They sell a potion called The Beauty Molecule, which is almost always sold out.
The Beauty Molecule: doesn’t that sounds slightly ominous? Can’t you see that as a plot point on Days of Our Lives?
Marlena, Stefano has broken out of prison again and I think he’s after The Beauty Molecule!
Have any of you tried it? Are you now insanely gorgeous? The Hair Molecule appeals too, but I’m finding it hard to get my head around a liquid supplement. I’d love to hear from anyone who has tried this with success.
What supplements do you take? Have you found any miracle cures? I’d love to know your thoughts!
