After having my baby I continued taking my pregnancy supplements until I stopped breast feeding. The intention to go it alone with a range of nutritious and freshly cooked meals but due to my exhaustion (let’s face it bringing up 3 children isn’t easy) I had forgotten an important fact. The foods that we eat nowadays are not as rich in nutrients as they used to be so rather than eating a ridiculously large amount of salad, vegetables and fruit each day and feeling like a grazing cow with the constant chewing a far simpler option was to take a multi vitamin and mineral supplement. A little while back I came across a company called Royal Green a company that has an interesting product that is a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement.
Royal Green has been established since 2008 and they provide a number of supplements, coconut products, superfoods and also whey protein for gym enthusiasts. I loved the fact that their Multi Woman and Man had both received the NOP Organic certification which is only awarded for products that are truly organic. With vitamins tailored to suit the nutritional needs of each sex all the company need do now is create a formulation for children and then that’s the whole family covered.
The vitamins and minerals come from berries, fruits and herbs (Acerola berries, guava, holy basil, lemon, mustard seeds and more), also included are 17-18 superfoods (blackberries, blueberries, spirulina, pomegranate, turmeric, green tea and others).
We need specific vitamins and minerals for our bodies to function at their optimum. For example we need zinc to help our immune system as well as support the body in breaking down fat, protein and carbohydrate. Vitamin B12 is used in the body to make red blood cells and also in the formation of nerves. Superfoods are nutrient rich foods that can help give the body a boost in various areas for example blueberries contain high quantities of soluble fibre (great for bulking up stool and trapping and increasing excretion of fats), vitamins and phytochemicals (also known as flavonoids these are antioxidant and anti-inflammatory and help protect red blood cells and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease). Pomegranates contain ellagic acid which is known to have anti-cancer properties. All the ingredients in the tablets are organic and nothing synthetic is added.
I found that after adding these tablets into my diet there was an improvement in the appearance of my nails, skin and hair and have since made sure that I regularly include supplements in my diet. For those looking to take great quality multivitamins and minerals Royal Green is definitely worth looking up.
