Take supplements if you wish to look good and stay healthy! That's the view of all current research! But which supplements?
It has often been said that if we just ate correctly there would be no need for supplements. In an ideal world, that would probably be true. But the soil we grow our food in just isn’t as nutritious as it once was and so our food is not as richly endowed.
Added to this, and despite the multitude of modern-day time saving gadgets, we simply do not have the time that previous generations had and everything seems to be done on the run, including eating.
As an advocate of living right to continue looking and feeling young for as long as possible, I feel very strongly about living life in the fast lane like this. My personal view is that if you are constantly on the go and with no time to do anything properly, with very little or no personal time, something is wrong and this will lead to accelerated ageing and almost certain ill health eventually.
However, in dealing with the immediate situation, if you are going to be living life at a fast pace, at least you can help yourself along nutritionally to give yourself a much needed boost. So do take supplements!

Vitamins and minerals, as well as other supplements play as big a part of my beauty regime as my oils, cosmetics and everything else! They should not be used as insurance against eating and sleeping incorrectly, but as a true supplement to the good you are already doing yourself.
Used right, they can be part of your arsenal against ageing.
On the other hand, a deficiency of vitamins and minerals is a fast track way of depriving your body of its ultimate enzyme function. This will cause your cells to go into a slow decline and deprive you of your chance to shine with youthful allure.
I now strongly recommend you
to read the key facts about vitamins, minerals and supplement benefits. You'll find out which are the most important vitamins and minerals for your health, and which are best for beauty.
Once you're an expert on that, then find out exactly what are the benefits of each vitamin so you can make informed choices.
