Back in October 2017 I was contacted on Instagram by Doctor’s Best advising me that they would like to bring me on board for their Brand Ambassador Program.
I was delighted to have been selected to be part of their Brand Ambassador Program, as I have had an interest in health and supplementing for a while.
Doctor’s Best has always been one of my top companies that stock vitamins and supplements and I had been buying their products from iHerb.
Doctor’s Best kindly sent out a big parcel to me full of products that could be of help to me.
The parcel contained supplements and vitamins as well as a t-shirt, pens and a weekly tablet organiser.
I received Acai, Vitamin D3, Lutein, NAC Detox Regulators, Beauty Ceramides, Vitamin K2, Hair, Skin and Nails and Vitamin C.

Acai is a berry that contains a high amount of antioxidants. Antioxidants protect your cells against free radicals – which can lead to heart disease and cancer etc.
Acai Berries also contain a high amount of fiber and fats that are healthy for your heart.
Vitamin D is such an important Vitamin for our health and is something most of us in the UK seem to lack in.
Vitamin D3 is the best type of Vitamin D, as this is the natural form of Vitamin D that your body produces from the sunlight.
Optimal levels for Vitamin D would range between 50-70 ng/ml. However the best levels for Vitamin D are within the 60-150 ng/ml range.
Vitamin K is used to help the blood clot. Vitamin K2 is used to activate proteins that regulate where calcium ends up in the body.
Vitamin D & Vitamin K
Vitamin D and Vitamin K are partners and should ideally be taken together. Vitamin D could lead to high calcium and blood vessel calcification, so it is a good idea to take Vitamin K2 together with Vitamin D3, so that the Vitamin K2 helps prevent calcium being deposited in the arteries.
Lutein is very beneficial for eye health and it is used to help prevent eye diseases. Lutein is known as a carotenoid vitamin which is related to beta-carotene and Vitamin A.
