Pure Encapsulations

I may not be a vision of health these days. In fact, it’s a joke how far from it I’ve become. 91 needles, 5 doctors appointments, 1 cortisone shot, and countless creams later….and I’m still figuring out what is going on.
While my body is freaking out, I’m trying my best to get to the root of the issue by eating healthy and supporting with supplements to at least avoid any nutrient deficiencies. That’s where Pure Encapsulations comes in.
Pure Encapsulations is a premium brand which prides itself for using only the best, top ingredients. Unlike many vitamins, the line is gluten-free and doesn’t contain eggs, preservatives, hydrogenated oils, added coatings, binders, shellacs, artificial flavors and sweeteners, colors or fragrances. This couldn’t be more important while my body is in this (annoying) hypo-allergic state.
These hypoallergenic supplements have become a part of my daily ritual, along with less caffeine (eeeep), colder showers, hypoallergenic bedding, and (unfortunately still) lots of antihistamines. While this is just my personal routine– and you should consult your health care provider before starting any new regimen!– I wanted to share my current line-up.

Magnesium is great for promoting relaxation and detoxification. I’m taking Magnesium Glycine to help regulate acid-alkaline balance…important for eczema and high blood-histamine levels!
Restless nights have become the norm these days. The Pure Encapsulations Best Rest Forumla helps me out here– it supports healthy sleep cycles by encouraging an easy transition to sleep and a restful night’s sleep. It contains the time-tested support of valerian, passionflower, chamomile, lemon balm and hops, which act to calm and relax the central nervous system, plus the well-known melatonin to facilitate the onset of sleep and sleep efficiency.

Along with traditional supplements, I’ve been adding drops of liquid vitamins into my water and tea. It’s an easy way to “remember” to take them, and arguably gets absorbed better. B12 and Vitamin D3 are my favorites for supporting mental and emotional well–being and boosting the immune system.

So there ya have it! What supplements are you taking to stay balanced this season? Any tips on how you remember to take them?
