Working hard at your wellness goals? If you’re hitting the gym or eating more plant-based meals, adding supplements to your day is an easy way to celebrate that well-tuned machine in a whole new way. Below, we’ve broken down four supplements that can fit into most self-care routines: multivitamins, essential fatty acids (EFAs), probiotics and protein powder.
When you’re ready to stock up, visit our Wellness & Beauty department. We prohibit over 100 ingredients in our supplements, including hydrogenated oils, high-fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners — so you’re sure to find a choice that’s good for your body.
Multivitamins are a long-standing go-to for good reason — and they can help fill in for nutrients that might be missing from your food intake. We offer multivitamins formulated specifically for women and men.
Our pick: Ancient Nutrition Multivitamins Immune Boost
Formulated using traditional Chinese methods, these daily capsules contain 21 vitamins and minerals that support energy levels, cognitive health and immune system health.
2. Essential Fatty Acids
Essential fatty acids (EFAs) are believed to support your heart health, brain, mood, joints and skin, and hair and nails. But here’s the catch — they aren’t naturally occurring in our bodies. They’re only found in food (like salmon and chia seeds) and supplements like fish oil or vegetarian sources such as algal oil.
Our pick: Nature’s Way Mint Ultra Pure Omega3 Supplements
These softgels contain a balanced formula of EPA and DHA (two types of omega-3 fatty acids) and are certified by Marine Stewardship Council and Friend of the Sea.
Probiotics (aka good-for-you bacteria) can help to play an important role in digestion, supporting the immune system and intestinal health. Call it self-care for your gut. Look for probiotics in tablet, powder and liquid form.
Our pick: Renew Life Ultimate Flora Probiotics
Each capsule contains 50 billion live probiotic cultures from 12 different probiotic strains and is designed to help with digestion health.
4. Protein powders
Plant-based protein powders offer a convenient way to support muscles, joints and overall wellness. They come in a variety of flavors from vanilla to mocha, so it’s easy to add them into your favorite recipes. We like to mix them into breakfast smoothies or pancake batter.
Our pick: Amazing Grass Organic Protein Superfood Pure Vanilla
This organic protein powder is made without dairy, gluten, grains or soy. Each scoop packs a combination of 20 grams of plant-based protein with seven alkaline greens, plus the equivalent of two daily servings of fruits and vegetables.
