How do you choose the right supplements for your body?
Like many things in life, sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between a trend and the real deal.
This is especially true when it comes to one of the hottest topics: supplements.
We often hear questions like, ‘What supplements should I take?’ or ‘Do supplements really work?’ or ‘Supplements are just another popular gimmick promoted by influencers, aren’t they?’…You name it.
There have been many discussions around whether some ingredients are truly effective when ingested in supplements. So, we used exactly that as our guiding principle when we put this guide together: why we need these ingredients and how to choose supplements that will benefit every body.
No BS, just bona fide wellness info on everything from supplements to green powders and more.
Find your ‘why’
We believe that when we are healthy on the inside, our body radiates a natural glow that nothing else in this world can replicate. So, it’s important that our skin, body and microbiome are nourished well with all kinds of nutrients. Since vegetables and fruit are not nearly as nutrient-dense as they once were – it’s time to find a little extra help.
Lay the foundation of solid nutrition
Multivitamins generally help reduce inflammation, boost energy and improve the immune function of adults and children. Most come in a unique proprietary blend of minerals, but very few are formulated with antioxidants, superfoods, omegas and probiotics.
Bonus tip: If you’re a vegan, try to look for one formulated with nutrients from whole food sources too!
Love your gut with plant-based nutrients
Research continues to uncover the close link between our gut health and our skin. At a core level, what we see in the mirror is a straight reflection of the condition of our gut. Did you know that prebiotics derived from Sauerkraut can help support the gut microbiome, which in turn could improve the health of your hair, skin and nails?
Glow up with superfood green
Reduce inflammation, boost energy and improve immune function with our mother nature. Tip: always find a powder blend packed with phytonutrients and antioxidants. Even better – a plant-based alkalizing green supplement created with organic premium whole food ingredients for healthier hair, skin and nails. Just add a couple of teaspoons to your morning smoothie!

Relieve restlessness with beauty sleep
Be your most well-rested self with the help of thoroughly-researched ingredients taken from Western herbal medicine. A balanced blend of valerian root powder, lemon balm powder and chamomile powder is known to have a calming effect, while helping to reduce anxiety* and other signs of stress for a lovely night’s sleep.
Finally, remember that supplements alone won’t get you to your ‘why’, but also what you choose to eliminate. To nourish the soul, try reducing your consumption of refined sugars and processed foods, paired with consistent healthy lifestyle habits and good quality sleep.
