30 days ago, I started taking Karen For Good Health phytoplankton in hopes it would improve my scalp psoriasis. SO, here I am giving you my 30-day update and the…
Im putting Karen for Good Health to the test so you don’t have to! “What is phytoplankton?” you ask and who the heck is Karen?! I’ll give you the low…
My psoriasis has cleared up and continues to be in remission
As I mentioned in my last post (30-day update) my biggest hope what for this supplement to help with my scalp psoriasis and it definitely has! Some of the amazing benefits Ive experienced taking Karen for Good Health daily and Karen for Good Health Ageless include:
- My flakey scalp has been in remission ever since starting to take Karen for Good Health Phytoplankton.
- Scalp has been less irritated and itchy
- The scabs have improved greatly
- I’m much more confident wearing my hair down
In addition to this miracle I didn’t think was possible for myself, Ive had a lot more energy to do the things I love. One of those things was completing my very first Medio fondo
I completed and crushed my first Medio fondo
For those who are not aware, a Medio fondo is a cycling race of 85km. I completed my first race ever in 3 hours and 7 minutes. Originally I had expected myself to score a time of 4 + hours so I was very impressed with myself! Training for this long of a race (at least it was long for me) was intense so I wanted to make sure I took care of my body to the best of my ability. This meant getting my nutrition, recovery, and supplementation on point!
Eating enough of the right foods
It’s very common, especially for us women to underestimate the amount of calories we need to function properly and optimally. I know from personal experience the combination of over exercise and undereating lead to a host of hormonal issues including:
- Loss of menstruation
- Hair loss
- Mood issues
- Skin issues
- Autoimmune issues (hello psoriasis)
Therefore, going into a regimen of intense training and a lot of cardio, I wanted my nutrition to be as on point as it could be.
I focused on whole nutrient dense foods, getting ample amounts of protein (at least 1 gram per lb of body weight), hitting a goal calorie intake to be sure I wasn’t undereating, and a lot of carbs. Carbs are your friend when it comes to endurance training.
Recovery is just as important as training whether or not you are training for a race, marathon, or just training for lifestyle purposes. This includes rest days, stretching before and after sessions, and some self-care activities. Maybe a massage or two
The final piece of the puzzle is proper supplementation, this included:
- Karen for Good Health daily and ageless
- Protein powder/collagen
- A multivitamin
- And electrolytes
All served a purpose.
Karen for Good Health phytoplankton is loaded with antioxidants and omega 3s to help with muscle recovery and inflammation. Antioxidants play a crucial role in muscle recovery by protecting your muscles from oxidative stress, reducing inflammation, and promoting tissue repair. When you engage in intense physical activity or exercise, your body undergoes various metabolic processes that can lead to the production of free radicals. Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), have been recognized for their potential anti-inflammatory effects
Protein and collagen power is a great way to up your protein if you are like me and struggle a bit to hit your minimum requirements (which are more than you think). For active women a good rule of thumb for protein intake is at least 1 gram per lb of body weight. Timing of protein intake become more important the more physical demand you put on your body but for the general population of active women, total protein intake for the day is most important.
Creatine is another supplement I swear by and would recommend to everyone. When you consume creatine, it is absorbed into your bloodstream and then taken up by muscle cells. Once inside the muscle cells, creatine is converted into phosphocreatine, a high-energy molecule that helps replenish ATP during intense physical activity. This means that creatine supplementation can increase the availability of phosphocreatine in the muscles, allowing for more rapid ATP regeneration and prolonged high-intensity exercise performance.
Do I plan on continuing to take Karen for Good Health Phytoplankton?
All in all, my experience with Karen for Good Health was amazing and I do plan on continuing with the supplement as it has benefited my health and wellbeing over the past couple months.
Ive had an increase in energy and recovery. Additionally, the fact that my scalp psoriasis has drastically improved is worth a lot to me and I’m not ready to give up a healthy scalp!
If you struggled with skin issue you know how much of a self-esteem hit you take wanting to cover up. Lastly, would I recommend Karen for Good Health to friends and family? Absolutely! Do I consider you guys my friends? Also, Absolutely!
