This incredibly informative episode sees Victoria Health’s brilliant pharmacist Shabir Daya return to Outspoken Beauty to talk through which supplements we should be taking during each decade of our lives.
From the supplements that we should all take whatever our age to those that help with acne, mood, PMS, pregnancy, menopause, bone health and everything in between, Shabir has it covered.
What I love about Shabir is that he is well informed, balanced and always looks at the whole picture. He is a man that I trust and have sought advice from a number of times in the past.
Below is a list of every supplement covered in the episode. They are all available on VictoriaHealth.com (where Shabir is also available to givce you advice). I believe you can also get a lot of them in Whole Foods and certain health food stores. I personally don’t buy supplements on Amazon as I like to know that they have been sourced and stored correctly but I’m quite neurotic ;0)
