it’s always a great day to take care of your health by eating wholesome foods and supplementing properly. as a vegan of over seven years, this has been of the utmost importance.
i like to start my day out with a strong breakfast packed with tons of nutrients.
since i no longer do intermittent fasting, i typically take my vitamins/supplements in the morning with food! occasionally, i take them with lunch or dinner, it just depends on the day.
before eating and taking my supplements, i like to make sure that i’m properly hydrated, which is a key component for optimal daily health.
pro tip- add some fruit (i like frozen) to water to make it more fun to drink! dragonfruit, oranges, blueberries, lemons are more are great options!
breakfast in the morning usually includes a hearty bowl of oatmeal, toast or a smoothie. if i’m feeling extra hungry and need more fuel for the day, i typically make oatmeal and a smoothie.
then, next up are my supplements! i take a daily multivitamin, probiotics and iwi’s omega-3. i have a discount code by the way, UPBEET25, which is such a great deal!! an omega-3 supplement has been part of my routine since i can remember.
however, when i went vegan, it was crucial to find one that didn’t come from fish or krill. i hadn’t found a brand that i truly loved since recently coming across iwi, so i would experiment with different brands for years!!
i’m pumped that i found iwi for many reasons, which i’ll go over, but first, why is it important to take an omega-3 supplement?!
an omega-3 supplement is important when it comes to supporting your heart, brain, vision, joints and overall wellness.
they’re a powerful fatty acid that promotes a healthy heart so that you can get the most out of life.
with DHA omega-3s, you can help support your nerve-cell membranes along with supporting healthy bones and joints.
iwi’s omega-3 uses a unique and proprietary form of algae, Almega®PL.
iwi says this is clinically proven to help your body absorb 50% more Omega-3s than fish or krill oil. you can get more support for your heart, brain, vision, joints and overall wellness.
iwi states the omega-3 contains DHA and the world’s only EPA that is naturally bound to glycolipids and phospholipids, which is so cool! it’s also packed with nutrients: chlorophyll, phytosterols, omega-7, carotenoids and other antioxidants.
it’s easy to incorporate an iwi omega-3 supplement as the serving size is just one soft gel per day!
there are so many benefits to taking an omega-3 and finding a quality brand that’s vegan has been game-changing for me.
