We’re all on the pursuit of agelessness and longevity.
Getting older– especially towards the 40-year-old mark– can feel like a massive milestone. And it comes with changes in our state of health and well-being. For some, it means amplified symptoms of pre-existing health conditions.
You may feel like you’ve tried it all and are following the best diet, exercise, or self-care regimens– but you just don’t see any changes.
So– I’m here to support you and remind you that you’re not alone! And there are some simple things you can incorporate into your daily routine that can help you defy aging and pursue longevity.
If you’re just looking for some easy wins, implementing subtle changes by adding my favorite supplements, minerals, and herbs can help you feel youthful and more in tune with the YOU that you love.
Let’s dive into my favorite, non-negotiable items to include in your day-to-day to enhance your longevity!
Top 7 Non-negotiable Herbs, Minerals, and Supplements
Throughout extensive research and personal experimentation, these are 7 of the very best– and my “non-negotiable” – supplements, minerals, and herbs to add to your day for longevity. And don’t worry– implementing all 7 of them isn’t nearly as difficult as you may think!
Supplement: B Vitamins
B Vitamins plan an essential role in metabolism, converting food to energy, and balancing your blood sugar– especially as you age.
Adding activated or methylated B vitamins to your daily regimen allows your body to take the food you eat and use it for energy instead of storing it as fat.
You’ll want to choose a supplement containing all the B vitamins in proper proportions, and one that’s activated or methylated.
Many women struggle with the methylation process– which means the supplement not only is worthless to your body, but it actually can create more problems.
All of my supplements with B vitamins (including my Activated B Complete) use the effective and activated form of the vitamin that your body needs.
Plus, My Essentially You Adrenal Love supplement includes Activated B vitamins as well as:
- Vitamin C
- American Ginseng
This supplement is a great solution for longevity– as it increases energy levels and improves cognitive function.
Adaptogenic Herb: Chasteberry (Vitex Agnus-Castus)
Chasteberry– also known as Vitex– is a small red berry that typically grows in the Mediterranean. It’s known as a progesterone booster, and lowers imbalanced levels of prolactin, influencing neurotransmitters in the body.
Chastberry supports symptoms of PMS, perimenopause, and postmenopause. Plus it balances emotional issues. Many women find success in combining it with Black Cohosh.
My Essentially Whole Hormone Balance blend perfectly pairs these two already for your convenience to give you optimal results.
Probiotics are an excellent way to support your gut health.
The digestive tract’s main function is to absorb nutrients from food while aiding in the secretion of bodily waste. It also functions as “our second brain” where messages are relayed to the brain daily.
That being said, many people have gut issues from chronic stress which shuts down the digestive system in favor of survival.
You can gain probiotic balance from fermented foods and drinks, but another good solution is taking a probiotic supplement.
It’s not the total number of bacteria in a probiotic that’s most important, it’s the number of various strains of bacteria the supplement contains. Different strains of probiotic bacteria have different jobs and are concentrated in various places along the digestive tract.
4 strains I recommend in your probiotic supplement are:
- L. acidophilus
- B. longum
- B. bifidum
- L. fermentum
Magnesium is a super-mineral ESSENTIAL for hundreds of cellular functions. It protects our body from aging– enhancing longevity! But so many women are magnesium deficient.
Magnesium deficiency can lead to:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Type-II Diabetes
- Mood and libido changes
- Fertility issues
Magnesium helps maintain healthy cortisol levels to protect our bodies from the onslaught of toxins and free radicals.
Proper insulin levels and glucose balance rely on magnesium, as well as our body’s energy levels and use of cholesterol. Additionally, magnesium helps alleviate symptoms from reproductive imbalances like PMS.
It’s no doubt magnesium has an essential role in the health of our bodies. It’s a mineral that can be found in a variety of foods but almost everyone can benefit from a supplement– which is why this one’s non-negotiable for me.
My Essentially Whole Magnesium Restore supplement is a perfect blend that gives you optimal bioavailability without causing diarrhea that many magnesium supplements are known for.
Adaptogenic Herb: Black Cohosh (Cimicifuga Racemosa)
This powerhouse herb has been used in Native American natural healing to support a variety of health issues, especially those related to female reproductive health and childbirth.
It’s amazingly popular as a women’s supplement for perimenopause and menopause.
It can be a supportive supplement that influences serotonin receptors to ease hot flashes and regulate hormones for women dealing with PMS or menopause.
You can find 100mg of high-potency black cohosh in my Essentially Whole Hormone Balance supplement, among other super-beneficial ingredients for longevity.
Supplement: Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3s are crucial for brain health and should be a regular part of your diet. However, most women don’t even get the bare minimum of two servings of fatty fish each week.
Supplements are required in this case so your body has enough healthy fat to sustain neural function and reduce inflammation. This prevents more rapid cognitive decline or brain issues down the road.
Omega 3 fatty acids can strengthen the brain and support healthy functioning, as well as reduce problematic inflammation in the brain. This is even helpful in people recovering from traumatic brain injury.
Adaptogenic Herb: Rhodiola Rosea
Rhodiola Rosea helps keep the body balanced during difficult times of change and stress, which often negatively affects the delicate balance of a woman’s hormones.
It balances the endocrine system while increasing the function of the thyroid leading to:
- Reduced fatigue
- Enhanced strength
- Lifted mood
- Improvement in the function of the brain
Rhodiola’s ability to reduce the amount of cortisol produced means your body doesn’t burn out as quickly, even when under typically stressful conditions.
High levels of cortisol are linked to:
- Premature aging
- Weight gain
- Thyroid issues
- Hormonal imbalance
So, the reduction of cortisol is a critical aspect of getting your hormones fully balanced and restoring your health to its optimal stage.
Plus, less cortisol means there’s less likelihood of binge eating, which ultimately leads to helpful loss of stubborn belly fat and other excess weight.
If you’re eager to easily add Rhodiola Rosea to your daily regimen after hearing about all its benefits, you’ll have to try My Essentially Whole Adrenal Love supplement.
This super supplement combines the power of Rhodiola with other adaptogenic herbs and vitamins to aid a healthy stress response.
With all the positive effects Rhodiola has on the body, it’s a non-negotiable, and a must have in your supplement regimen.
