Ask Dr. Nadia: 5 Supplements [Nearly] Everyone Should Take

The answer to the above question is #3 on our list below! Just one of the many things I’ve learned from Dr. Nadia Musavvir Instagram page (instagram.com/_drnadia_). Whenever I’m in LA, I’m usually in between trips, exhausted, depleted, and have Dr. Nadia Musavvir on speed dial. She gets me the vitamin shots I need and literally puts me back together. But seriously for my list trip she saw me dead after a 24 hours whirlwind where I went from Paris –> NYC –> LA (3 time zones in 1 day!) and had only a few days in Los Angeles before having to be at a conference in Vegas. I wanted to curl up in a ball and die of exhaustion. Ten minudtes with Dr. Nadia and I’m a new person.  During our last visit it occurred to me I’m always reading trendy stories about must have supplements from people I don’t know and sources I don’t always trust so I asked for her top 5 supplements (nearly) everyone should take, here’s what made her count:

1. Trace minerals

I typically recommend a multi mineral rather than a multivitamin because the soil is so deficient in minerals; we would need 7x the recommended amount of vegetables to get adequate minerals (provided not all mineral content gets destroyed in the cooking process AND that digestion is functioning optimally to absorb).

2. Probiotic

Stress, foods, medications can all change the microbiome; because a balanced and healthy assortment of good bacteria is necessary for digestion, absorption, a healthy immune system, neurotransmitter formation (which affects mood), I always recommend a good probiotic.

Daylight Savings Health and Wellness Tips

The most common question I get from my followers is ‘how do you do it? Followed by some reference on how they feel exhausted just from watching my life on Instagram. Albeit I have an active life, filled with events and tons of travel but the go-go-go lifestyle does take its toll; which is why balance is so important. In fact whenever I’ve interviewed a famous athlete, celebrity or someone whose lifestyle seems crazier than mine by ten fold, I always ask their best tips on how to de-stress and stay centered and consistently the answer is sleep. Having enough quality sleep is the first step to any healthy lifestyle and feeling well rested and ready for the day to come. It’s vital to your mental and physical health, yet sadly enough, one third of Americans (33%) say it’s been 6 months or longer since they last woke up feeling energized. I for one am more likely to be short fused and off center if I’m sleep deprived. It’s like suddenly the glass is half empty instead of full and I’m dragging instead looking forward to the day.


With Daylight Savings (November 6th) just around the corner, I’m so excited to be partnering with my friends at Beautyrest Brand to share my best tips on how you can take steps towards a healthier lifestyle and feel more rested in one hour or less.

Nourish up! There’s a new snack in town by Joy Bauer

Joy Bauer Nourish Snacks

Lately, I’ve been all about the subscription box services. I’ve been getting some really interesting ones from all over the world — mostly beauty and fashion boxes — except for my latest discovery, Nourish Snacks!

I’m a huge snacker. With the amount that I’m on the road and my scattered schedule, I consider myself a bit of an expert in the category. (I’m on a first name basis with my deli guys.) I’m also a health nut and probably one of my biggest struggles is finding good, healthy, quick choices (my current staples are Kind Bars, pita chips and nuts), although I’m always feigning for more options, I feel so limited in having good choices. So, a subscription box service that delivers a variety of healthy snacks has my name written all over it.

Come on get healthy!
