Growing up my Grandparents exposed me to the benefits of eating healthy and exercising regularly. It wasn’t just the usual “make sure you eat all your vegetables” speech. No, it was a much more detailed and involved regiment of vitamins and supplements along with various low impact exercises and stretching. Lets put it this way they had a walk-in closet in their apartment that smelled like a vitamin shop. Which is kind of ironic since The Vitamin Shoppe is where I go to get all of my supplements, vitamins, and other holistic items. I usually shop online but like the convenience of being able to shop at the store as well. Getting back to my Grandparents, specifically my Grandmother she is like a walking encyclopedia of vitamins and supplements.
If you were suffering from a cold or sore throat she would recommend taking extra vitamin C and zinc. If your hair was dry or nails kept breaking she would recommend a biotin supplement. If you had a minor burn she would tell you to put aloe vera cream on your skin that also helps restore and rejuvenate your skin.
I am pretty sure she has a vitamin, oil, or supplement that would help your body and mind with just about any issue. She would always remind us to take extra special care of our skin and hair during the winter times. She would use avocado oil on her hands and face to help moisturize and nourish her skin. I remember her saying that the vitamin E in the oil helped protect and revitalize your skin. It must work because her skin still looks fabulous and she is 96 years old!! She also recommended taking a vitamin E supplement to slow down the aging process.
All of the things she advised back then are still being talked about today. In addition to all of the supplements and oils that were around back then there are many more available today. I’m sure you have all heard about the benefits of coconut oil. One can’t turn on the TV or go online without someone mentioning the benefits of this wonderful oil. Not only can coconut oil be used in cooking it also helps with so many other areas as well. You can use coconut oil as a hair treatment, or to nourish your nails and cuticles and it can even be used as an all-natural lip balm. My other favorite use is AMAZING make up remover! No need to use chemical based make-up removers. Coconut oil does wonderful job.
The best thing I am about to share is that all of these products that I mentioned can be found at Vitamin Shoppe. They have thousands of products for you to choose from that are available in store and online. Health and beauty products, vitamins, supplements, shampoos, soaps, nutrition bars and shakes, herbs, honey, deodorant, anti-oxidants, and more. I highly recommend you check them out for yourself. Don’t forget to sign up for their rewards program so you can start building up points for future discounts.
Which products do you usually purchase from Vitamin Shoppe? Do you purchase them online or at Vitamin Shoppe Stores? Or what new Vitamin Shoppe product you would like to try?!
