Start a Vitamin Regimen • Chill the Anxiety Challenge Day 11

Calcium, Magnesium, B-vitamins, A-C-E’s all these are good to get. I like to get as much as I can from food, but I do keep a stock of magnesium suppliments. I haven’t had a charlie horse since I have been taking them, even though I forget to take them for 2-4 weeks here and there. Magnesium is responsible for about 300 different processes in the body, especially for muscles and nerves. It is also a bit challenging to get a full share of it in daily food intake due to over processed and preserved foods (https://realfarmacy.com/deficient-magnesium-many-signs-can/)

Vitamin A

My favorite sources are kale, carrots, and eggs. Locally in nature, I would pour hot water over curly dock and enjoy it as tea. Vitamin A is easier for the body to aborb after cooking and combined with a fat like butter, animal fat, coconut oil, or olive oil.

Basically, I shred, grate, or chop anything. I’m trying to get vitamin A from, add fat, and hot water. And with eggs, I crack open a few, add 2 Tbsp Almond flour, 2 Tbsp Peanut butter, a bit of fat, and maybe a couple Tbsp of macerated carrots sieved (filtered) from my carrot juice, and then fry or microwave it into a cake for 2 minutes.

Why is Vitamin A so important? Well, it is used for many things in the eye department. Benefits include clear, moiste eyes, that can see better in the dark. It’s also very important for the immune system and will help your body fight cancer. Are you unhappy with skin issues? Make sure you are getting vitamin A every day, because it can help with this since vitamin A is used in creating new cells, that includes bone cells as well (https://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/vitamins/health-benefits-of-vitamin-a-or-retinol.html). When I started including these nutrient dense foods, like kale, in my diet I could feel a real difference in my mood and thoughts.
