Vitamins for the New Year

Good Morning Everyone,

It's time for the new year, new me slogan. I always found that funny but oh well. I don't think you need the new year to make resolutions. You can make them anytime. Life is about always making changes that are the best for you. I have never believed in waiting until the new year to make changes. 

Make your changes now. Anyway, since we are on the topic of the new year I did want to share the vitamins that I would be taking in 2020. 

Now I believe that I have shared my woman's multivitamin before. I take the VitaFusion Women's Multivitamin and you can find these anywhere. I found mine at the grocery store. I believe Walmart sells them as well. 

Here is the backside if you are interested. These taste so good and are about $10 a bottle. These last me about 4 to 5 months and I have been taking them for about 2 years. I do love the taste!

Now when I was grabbing these I noticed the Vitafusion Magnesium. I picked up the bottle and begin to read. I did read that magnesium is good for muscle and nerve function as well as blood sugar levels and blood pressure.

Here is the backside if you are interested. I recently have had a few high blood pressure scares. I don't know what was going on but it was high. 

I am not a fan of blood pressure pills. I have family members who have been on them for years and had to get other medication because of the side effects from the blood pressure pills! It's nuts!

I would rather eat healthy, exercise, and take care of myself than be on blood pressure pills. So we will see how these work. 

I hope that you all enjoyed this post and found this information helpful. Each year I try to make a goal of going to see more specialists. Now that I have had a podiatrist visit I will be visiting a vein doctor. 

I have been struggling with circulation in my left leg for over a decade now and I think it's time to get it looked at. I still have not had a facial and I need to get that appointment booked this year as well. I have also been thinking about seeing a dietitian. I have not meet with one since Lauren was born. 

I will let you guys know what I find out. Enjoy your Monday!

  1. Hi Mrs. Shockley,
    It's good that you are caring for yourself and being proactive with your health. This is a reminder for me to do the same.
    Have a wonderful day,

    1. Hey Mya,
      I am trying to be proactive. My mother has a lot of health issues and I am trying to prevent those. You have a wonderful day too!

  2. Hello Mrs.Shockley.
    Thanks for the info. I routinely drink herbs like nettles and oatstraw infusions. I also take a women's multivitamin. 😄

    1. Hey Aliyah,
      I love the fact that you drink herbs. Those do wonders! If you are young keep it up!
