The best supplements: Lifelong Vitality Supplement Review
Did you know that DoTERRA’s top-selling product is not an essential oil? It’s actually their Life Long Vitality supplement pack. I will tell you that I was 100% skeptical of supplements when I ordered these. I didn’t think I needed them and didn’t think they really had any effect on my body. I think I’d only taken supplements one other time in my life and didn’t notice any real difference.
Why we all actually need supplements
So I put off ordering the Life Long Vitality supplement pack for nearly nine months because I’m over here like, I’m only (ONLY) thirty…do I really need a supplement?
and the answer is yes, I did…and you likely do too. Here’s why:
the Standard American Diet (SAD–literally and figuratively), does not deliver the nutrients we need. 92% of people in the US are lacking in one or more nutrients.
even when we’re eating well our food is lacking nutrients due to commercial farming practices, GMOs, etc. Dr. Mark Hyman basically sums it up by saying, “The foods you eat no longer contain the nutrient levels you require for optimal health for many reasons. Crops are raised in soil where nutrients have been depleted. Plants are treated with pesticides and other chemicals so they no longer have to fight to live, which further diminishes their nutrient levels and their phytonutrient content (not to mention the toxic exposure you receive from such chemicals).”
deficiency in vitamins and minerals leads to disease
there are a ton of toxins in our home and body products
these supplements actually help your body
I’ve been taking the LLV supplements for about three months now; I noticed a huge increase in energy when I took the full dose (so much energy that I actually couldn’t sleep at night, so I started taking half the recommended daily dose, and was then able to sleep without issues). Before I go any further I just have to say that these products are GMO free–and if you’re looking for info on GMOs my friend Kaetlyn has some awesome resources on her blog.
Even with the obvious boost in energy I still wasn’t convinced that the supplements were doing anything for me. So after only a week of using them I stopped taking them for a week, just to see if I could notice a difference.
I noticed a difference. Even after a week.
Everything seemed to function better when I was taking the Lifelong Vitality Supplements. I would often have digestive upset before taking the supplements, but when taking the supplements, I didn’t notice any. When I stopped taking them for a week, I noticed those issues would flare up. So I started taking them again and haven’t stopped.
My skin is better than it has been in the past (I still get some hormonal breakout during my period, but I mean, it is what it is). My hair and scalp appear healthier and my nails feel stronger. Plus, I still have that optimal level of energy.
The Lifelong Vitality Supplement pack comes with three supplements with super weird names that are hard for me to remember:
This is referred to as the “cellular vitality complex” and basically helps to support healthy cell function. It is a combination of polyphenols from actual foods, (like frankincense, milk thistle, green tea, pomegranate, turmeric, and pine bark, to name a few) not synthetically made garbage. You can learn more about polyphenols here, but basically, they’re awesome and support your cells.
This is the essential oil and omega oil complex (omegas that are plant and fish based–they totally have a vegan option though! You can learn more about the three types of omegas here). Basically, it supports healthy brain function, as well as supporting your immune, joint, and cardiovascular systems. Omegas include EPA (fish-based), DHA (fish-based), ALA (plant-based), SDA (plant-based), and GLA (plant-based). It even has stuff from green algae in it! So I mean, it basically makes you a mermaid.
It also includes clove, frankincense, thyme, cumin, wild orange, peppermint, ginger root, caraway, and German chamomile essential oils.
This is also called the “food nutrient complex” and is a food supplement made with actual whole foods, again, not some synthetic garbage. It’s a blend of kale (which means you don’t actually need to eat it ), dandelion, parsley, kelp (again, you’re a mermaid now), broccoli, Brussel sprouts, and spinach. So basically, all the things you hated to eat as a kid, now in a cute little pill. (NOT for kids though, just FYI–DoTERRA does have child-friendly supplements but that’s another post for another day.)
I also take a Digestzen soft gel and 2 Terrazyme (digestive enzymes) a day. I will also occasionally take the Deep Blue polyphenol complex (helps fight soreness etc. and I’m always surprised when it actually works). I’m also using the gastrointestinal cleansing formula for the first time this month! I’ll update you on that later.
You could buy each supplement listed in the capsules, but then you’d be spending $250 plus each month. These supplements are valued at $153, but are made available to us for $75 because we believe that they help so much. These supplements also have a 30-day guarantee that most companies don’t offer–so basically, if you don’t feel better after using these supplements every day for an entire month, you’ll get your money back.
Since my body seems to only need half the dose my $75 goes even further, so that’s a win for me! What supplements do you commonly use, and have you noticed a difference?
