Over 30? These are some Vitamins you should be taking

I’m not one of those that had a mini mid-life crisis at 30 years old. I was so ready for 30 and all that it encompasses. However, I didn’t realize how much my body would change during my 30’s. I had never needed a primary doctor and couldn’t remember the last time I had a physical but around 31ish…I decided to become an official adult and get a physical.

During that physical, my doctor gave me a few suggestions on vitamins I can start incorporating into my daily routine to help keep my body in great physical condition. Note: I would suggest seeing a doctor before committing to anything other than a daily multivitamin. They would be able to run tests and determine what you may be lacking and suggest vitamins as needed.

Multivitamin

If you aren’t already taking one, a good multivitamin is a great place to start

Vitamin b12

Vitamins B6 and B12 reduce a woman’s risk of heart disease by helping to keep homocysteine levels low. High levels of the naturally occurring amino acid raise the risk of heart attacks, stroke and blood clots.

Melatonin

If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep at night despite being diligent about keeping screens out of the bedroom and embracing soothing bedtime rituals to help you sleep better, a decline in melatonin may be the culprit. I don’t take this every day, only when I’m having trouble silencing my brain.
