People often ask me if I take multivitamins and what brand or type to I use?
Short answer: Yes! dōTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality Pack. I’ve been using dōTERRA’s multivitamins daily for the last couple years and I feel incredible! I truly believe the combination of eating a well balanced diet, regular exercise & supplementing daily with these multivitamins has made me a Superstar in sport, at work and at home.
Long Answer: I honestly feel I’ve benefited tremendously from dōTERRA’s multivitamins and want to share with you this great product. When I started my adventures in marathon & ultra-running running a little over 5 years ago I didn’t think I needed any type of vitamin supplement. Why would I? I thought I was a Superstar and I was sure I’d get everything I needed from a wholesome, balanced diet. Well, those days were tough and things didn’t go as planned. I thought my body would tell me if it needed specific vitamins through cravings for specific foods it needed. During hard training periods I tended to eat everything in sight and still be losing weight, running out of energy and slowly deteriorating. It was obvious I was falling short of the minimum recommended dietary intake (RDI) of many vitamins & minerals. I learned that getting the RDIs of all 26 essential vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients from foods alone is difficult for everyone. Especially if you’re living a lifestyle of working hard and playing hard.
This was when dōTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality Pack entered my life. After a health scare and working with a functional medicine doctor at Dr. Mark Hyman’s UltraWellness Center (see blog post here), I began using these multis on a daily basis and soon after I began to feel my energy return. The combination of a restructured, and well rounded diet and dōTERRA’s multivitamins instantly revitalized me both mentally and physically. I was back and feeling better then ever! Now, a couple of years later, with continued use of these multis, eating a balanced diet and regular exercise, I feel like a 20 year old version of myself. I am that Superstar I thought I was 5 years ago.
Here’s an quick overview of MicroPlex, AlphaCRS & xEO (the 3 components of the LifeLong Vitality pack). If you have any questions message me here or on my social media pages and I’ll answer any questions you have. I’ve included pics and links to the product for more info.
This is a vitamin & mineral supplement that has its nutrients in whole food form. Very cool! Research suggests nutrients in whole food form are the best method for the body to absorb. The complex provides 22 essential vitamins & minerals to support normal growth, function & maintenance of cells. Compared to regular multis, it has higher levels of Vitamin D3, Vitamin C and B Vitamins. It even includes whole food powders from Broccoli, Kale & Brussel Spouts.
This supplement’s goal is to support healthy cell function by reducing oxidative stress (hadn’t seen this before). As you’ll see its high in antioxidants and phytonutrients from superfoods and plant based compounds that support celluar function & natural cleansing. It’s made of Milk Thistle (detoxification & liver support), Boswellia Serrata (inflammation), Green Tea extract (antioxidants), Turmeric & Curcumin (inflammation), Grape Seed extract, Quercetin and CoEnzyme Q10. I could go on and on about the benefits of this supplement and how an athlete should use this for recovery…but I’ll save that for another post.
We’ve all heard the benefits of supplementing with some type of fish or plant based oil that is high in Omega 3’s. dōTERRA’s xEO Mega has a balanced level of Omega 3’s from both a marine and plant based source. They use sustainabily caught old water fish (Sardines, Anchovy & Mackerel), Flax seed oil & Astaxanthin (Green Algae). They’re also added a combo of antioxidants to the oils to keep them from going rancid.
Feel free to message me with any questions about dōTERRA’s Lifelong Vitality Pack or see this video by Dr. Josh Axe for more specifics on the supplements. I’ve been taking them daily for the past couple years and I feel incredible! I truly stand by this product and suggest you give them a try!!
