Liz Loves: Supplements to support your wellbeing

It’s so important to look after our health and make sure we’re doing all we can to keep our immune system in good shape. Here, Liz shares some of the supplements she takes to help keep her fit, healthy and strong.

If taking a prescribed medication, you can ensure there is no interaction of supplements by checking online on the NHS website or with your GP. Body identical HRT is simply hormones and does not interact with supplements.

Liz takes Amino Slim by Strong Nutrients first thing in the morning on a completely empty stomach. This is usually before high intensity exercise (even if only five minutes of squats and push-ups). Strong Nutrients’ founder, Zana Morris, also recommends taking Amino Slim before bed on an empty stomach (instead of the morning). You need to allow at least two hours after eating or drinking anything (water is fine). Liz also takes a separate small scoopful of Youth & Earth NMN.

After getting ready for the day, Liz takes 3-4 Ingenious Beauty Collagen capsules on an empty stomach. She may also add some  Neutrient Butterfat Keto to a cup of tea or coffee.
Before breakfast, Liz will sometimes take a small amount of Microbz Bio-Live Gold, alongside a glass of kefir. Mid-morning, Liz takes her main supplements for the day with a high-fat brunch or snack to help improve absorption. This might be Greek yoghurt with nuts and berries, avocado on buttered sourdough toast, a couple of scrambled eggs on some green veg, a protein-based smoothie or a handful of nuts. Liz likes the Casein Unsweetened Vanilla protein powder from Strong Nutrients – you can blend this in water, whole milk or a plant-based milk alternative such as almond or oat. Liz also makes drinks and shakes using the Mind supplement powder from Indi Supplements for both herself and her children.

Liz tends to cycle her supplements. For instance, she might be taking a month of Super Me by Life Armour or Saffrosun by Naked Pharmacy. However, her basic supplements will always include Omega-3 fish oils by Bare Biology, Optibac For Women, Better You Vitamin D3 spray with K2 and their multi B vitamin spray plus Liposomal Vitamin C from Youth & Earth, and iodine in the form of a seaweed capsule from Weed & Wonderful. Liz usually adds a teaspoonful of Strong Nutrients Creatine to her tea or coffee then too, which is fine to take with cold or warm (not hot) drinks, and often a sachet of Bimuno prebiotic too. And to protect her eye health Liz takes the MTHK eye supplements and spray.

During the winter months, Liz increases the focus on immune system support, with additional Olive Leaf extract from Naked Pharmacy, plus Quercetin and Zinc Ascorbate from Bio-Care. She will also cycle a month on/month off with Lactoferrin by Leapfrog. Quercetin is also especially useful during the summer months and Liz will take more of this for help with hay fever when the pollen count is high.

In the evenings, Liz takes Bio Care Magnesium at bedtime to help with sleep. She also takes Glutathione from Youth & Earth – especially after a glass or two of wine! Her last supplement of the day is Drops of Slumber from Life Armour, which she keeps on her bedside table for lights out…

Supplements that Liz loves to use

Vitamin C

Recently, Liz has been taking Altrient’s Liposomal Vitamin C. This has been proven to provide higher rates of absorption than other forms. Enjoy 10% off your first order at Abundance and Health with the code LIZLOVES.

Garlic Extract

A firm favourite of Liz’s during the winter months is garlic capsules. Several studies show that garlic has antibacterial activity. Liz particularly likes the ‘aged’ garlic extracts.

Magnesium

Magnesium helps to turn the food we eat into energy. It also helps to support the parathyroid glands, which produce the hormones important for bone health.

Herb extracts

Thyme extract is also a helpful herb for supporting the upper respiratory tract. Liz’s whole family enjoys a couple of spoonfuls of both elderberry syrup and thyme extract every morning as a bug-busting regime.

Another botanical worth adding into your daily regime is olive leaf extract. As well as supporting the immune system, studies suggest that olive leaf extract may be helpful for heart health. It also helps to regulate blood sugars.

Liz loves The Naked Pharmacy olive leaf extract, use code LIZLOVES for 20% off.

Zinc lozenges

Lab research shows that zinc can stop some viruses from multiplying. It may also help shorten the duration of a common cold. Given the immune-supporting properties of zinc, it seems sensible to ensure we have plenty in our daily diet. These are the chewable tablets or lozenges Liz has with her at the moment.

Fish oils + Vitamin D3

Liz particularly likes the fish oil supplements. These contain high-quality omega-3 oils that are sustainably sourced. Additionally, each supplement also contains the NHS recommended daily amount of vitamin D3 added to each capsule.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D plays an important role in modulating our innate and adaptive immune responses. Not getting enough increases our susceptibility to infection. Another of Liz’s favourite Vitamin D brands is BetterYou where you can purchase with a 15% discount using code LIZLOVES at checkout.

Vitamin K2

This vitamin is another super useful antioxidant nutrient. It works to support and enhance the efficiency of vitamin D and also helps support the immune system by protecting macrophages (white blood cells). Liz takes a Vitamin D formula that also includes K2 from BetterYou and we’ve manage to secure a generous 15% discount using code LIZLOVES at checkout.

Iron

Iron is an essential dietary mineral that contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin, and supplements can be especially important for those who don’t eat many eggs or red meat.
