What Are Supplements?

Supplements are just that — supplements, not replacements. Paired with a balanced diet, they can help keep the body strong and well by supporting the functions of your muscles, brain, digestion and more. Supplements come in tablet, capsule, chewable, powder and liquid form, so it’s easy to find what works best for you.

Supplements A to Z

From adaptogens to zinc, brush up on your supplement knowledge here to help you navigate our aisles with ease.

Adaptogens

Adaptogens are associated with herbs and roots that have been used for centuries in ayurvedic practices as they are believed to help the body with stressors. Today, popular varieties include holy basil and ashwagandha. Adaptogens are more commonly found in capsules but can also be available in liquid and powder forms.

Our pick: Himalaya Herbal Healthcare Organic Ashwagandha Tablets

Collagen Protein

Many people look to collagen proteins to help support their skin, hair, nails, joints and more. Powder varieties are soluble in hot or cold liquids, including coffee, smoothies and even baked goods.

Essential Fatty Acids

Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are believed to support your heart health, brain, joints and skin, and hair and nails. They’re only found in food (like salmon and chia seeds), supplements like fish oil and omega-3 capsules or vegetarian sources such as algal oil.

Our pick: Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega-D3 Capsules

Fiber helps maintain digestive regularity and supports healthy intestine functions. It’s naturally occurring in plant-based foods like leafy greens, beans and legumes. You can also find it in capsule, powder and gummy form.
