women's health, orange tuesdays,

Back in the days I am not really that much of a fan of medicine + pills, the less I do about them, the better. I am not really that sickly + I would only have the proverbial cough + colds once or twice in a year + that is it,  otherwise I have a clean bill of health all-year round.

It was an entirely different ballgame when I got pregnant. It became a daily part of my system to pop those supplements + vitamins to ensure that I + the little peanut inside me will be in the pink of healthy in the duration of my pregnancy + beyond.

There were more pills + prescription drugs when I gave birth as I was a C-section. Antibiotics need to be taken a few times everyday to be sure the wounds would heal faster + I won’t have any infections or other complications.

Nowadays, I take Vitamin C daily just to be sure I will be less susceptible to diseases + to give my immune system a much needed boost. + about 4 days ago, I have also started taking Vitamin E. Apart from being good for the heart, Vitamin E is also good for the skin. With all the stress full-time parenting entails, with having less time to care for myself, I needed that extra help to keep my skin healthy-looking + well-hydrated. This particular vitamin I am taking even promises younger-looking skin in 10 days, so I guess we’ll see in a few days if it is effective for me :)

It was also a good thing that this particular brand of Vitamin E is currently having a promo. I got 4 pieces for free when I purchased 16 pieces, that’s a lot of savings already :)

What vitamins + supplements are you taking?

Linking this with Orange Tuesdays :)

I was not compensated for this post but was merely sharing a product I have tried lately.
