Vitamins & Vixens… Eat Like A Super Hero

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” ~Dr. Seuss

I’ve always wanted to dress up like Wonder Woman for Halloween. I should definitely put that on my “Bucket List”.

It takes effort to look hot, be fit and rock a costume. People can say whatever they want to say about Female Superheroes, but I believe those girls eat a healthy diet, work out and aren’t vitamin deficient!

So let’s separate fiction from fact about Vitamins. Vitamins are substances that your body needs to grow and make leaps & bounds. I remember taking my purple Flintstone Vitamins back in the day. I read in a Fashion magazine that Christina Aguilera requested Flintstone Vitamins be delivered to her dressing room. Creature of habit! Today, I’d request the new Gummy Vitamins.

Enough about me what about you? 

  • Are you taking your vitamins every day?
  • Do you ever forget to take your vitamins?
  • Do you even know why we have to take vitamins? 

Vitamins come from Mother Nature; she’s the Power Source for  ALL Female (and male) Superheroes!

There are 13 vitamins your body needs to keep you strong, sexy & healthy. They are vitamins A, C, D, E, K and the B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12 and folate).

You can usually get all your vitamins from the foods you eat. Your body can also make vitamins D and K. If you’re lifting weights and wish to flaunt your Feminine Power, you may need extra iron, omegas & calcium.

The Vegan Vixens may need to take a vitamin B12 supplement. The best way to get enough vitamins is to eat a balanced diet with a variety of foods. In some cases, you may need to take a daily multivitamin for optimal health. However, high doses of some vitamins can make you sick.

There are many articles disputing vitamins. I’m not a nutritionist, I was just schooled about antioxidants by a well known scientist who “jet sets” around the world doing double blind studies. 

Hands down, unequivocally, no one is disputing the health benefits of fruits and vegetables, which are super-rich in antioxidants, as well as other nutrients you just can’t find in pill form.

I see high ORAC scores thrown around (like clothes on a clearance rack) in vitamins, chocolate & other edible goods, but buyer beware, you may not be getting what you paid for. If there’s  no clinical data supporting how those ORACs perform on a cellular level, you could very well be hoodwinked.

Please repeat after me: A vitamin a day does not replace the nutrients that are naturally found in fruits or vegetables every day.

It’s like a fake Hermes Birken Handbag–and let’s face it, if you can afford it, nothing beats the authenticity of the original.

What Female Superhero are you going to be for Halloween?

Beauty, Health & Wealth,
