Day 41: Vemma
I started taking Vemma this week. It is a powerful juice that you get all your vitamins in one blast. I have taken multi-vitamins for many years in pill form, and in the pill was Vitamin D. However, I was Vitamin D deficient when my doctor checked for it. So, I went to thinking (causing a headache, I am sure) and wondered if the pill form is difficult for my body to digest. I then was thinking about the nutrients in my food and wondered if I was getting all that I could out of those too...The answer I have found is no, I am not. I do have Microscopic Colitis and my intestines and even my stomach are inflamed. If you think about it, if something is inflamed then it can't absorb as well. So in this research I found that I need to eat foods that decrease inflammation and take supplements and vitamins that are easy to digest so I get the full benefit of them. With all that I found that the enzymes that I will be using (I got for free from Houston Enzymes to test and report on my blog) will help with inflammation and the Vemma will easily deliver me the vitamins I need. I first thought I'd try each one separate to see their effects, however, I am on the road to recovery and if I can get the most out of the Vemma by working on my inflammation by taking the enzymes it would be counter productive for me not to take them together. So, after my delivery of Enzymes arrived today, I am going to start taking them both together. I will let you know how it works out as I go through it! I do encourage you to read more about Vemma by clicking on the links. My friend Cheryl who writes a similar blog is who turned me on to Vemma.
