The best $2 I spent on supplements
This holds true for medications, as well. A pill, for whatever need, is only helpful if it actually comes out of the bottle, and gets into me.
Remembering to take those needed supps, daily (sometimes, a couple of times daily), and on schedule, has always been a problem for me. My consistency can be quite poor. And when I was feeling rotten this summer, I got even more off-schedule. I tried a variety of "systems". Not one kept me consistently on track with taking what I needed.
Enter the daily pill minder. I bought this 6 weeks ago, and I haven't missed a pill or supplement, since. In fact, it worked so well for me, that I bought a couple more for other members of the household who need prompting to take their vitamin D.
I actually have 2 of these for myself, now. One is for morning supplements. The other is for afternoon ones. Some minerals compete for absorption, with others, so I take those at a different time of day. And some supps require a couple of doses per day. Those, too, can go in the afternoon pill minder.
I am so on top of this, now, with the help of my pill minders.
