Tip: Take Omega 3
Mother of two, Adriana, who is famous for her post-baby body says, “I eat a lot of protein and green vegetables and I always take supplements like Omega-3, and a multivitamin which contains a bunch of things from vitamin B12, to antioxidants and zinc.”
Shona says “Omega 3 fats are needed to absorb important nutrients such as the fat soluble vitamins, A, D E and K. They also provide a wide spectrum of health benefits including balancing hormones, keeping the skin and arteries supple, lowering blood pressure, reducing inflammation and regulating mood.”
Try: Quest Omega 3-6-9 (£5.89 from revital.co.uk), this provides a balanced blend of the omega 6 fatty acids
