Dietary supplements are products designed to augment your daily intake of nutrients, usually the vitamins and minerals. Other substances also fall into this category and are taken as dietary supplements.
Evening primrose oil is the oil from the seed of the evening primrose plant. Evening primrose oil is used for skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne.

I take this as a dietary supplement, I try to take a 1300mg soft gel daily. I heard that you can better enjoy the benefits of this supplement by being super-consistent. That’s something I’m still working on.
Cod liver oil
Cod liver oil can be obtained from eating fresh cod liver or by taking supplements. Cod liver oil is used for high cholesterol, kidney disease in people with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, osteoarthritis, depression, an autoimmune disease called systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), glaucoma, and middle ear infections.
My mum used to give me cod liver oil when I was much younger. I actually got this supplement because of the sentimental value I attach to it, I’m lucky it has so many great benefits. I try to take a 1000mg soft gel daily.
Aloe vera juice
Aloe vera helps the immune system, encourages normal blood sugar, and reduces redness and swelling. Best of all it’s natural and totally safe.
I try to take a cap of this everyday.
