Supplement recommendations

I’m very picky about what supplements I recommend. I don’t follow trends or fads. I also don’t get paid to promote any certain brands*. When I recommend a product, you can trust that it’s because I believe in the product – it’s quality, necessity, and efficacy. Please reach out if you have any questions about these supplements or if you have a particular brand/supplement that you would like me to review. 

*In an attempt to make these supplements affordable for you, I’ve included my affiliate link when possible. When you order any of the following from iHerb, you’ll receive a discount and I may receive a small credit in return. Again, this does not affect what supplements I suggest or recommend.
