Which vitamins should I take?
Taking a nutritional supplement is a really simple way to give your body the vitamins and minerals that you don’t produce naturally. With 13 different vitamins, each doing something amazing but different for your body, how do you know which vitamins you should take?
The answer to this question really depends on you. Looking at your diet, lifestyle, and overall health goals can help understand what your body already has and what it needs more of to be working and in tip-top condition.
What vitamins are missing from my diet?
We get vitamins and minerals from our diet but often we need a little top-up. If you follow a special diet or avoid certain foods, there might be important vitamins missing from your diet.
For example following a vegan diet can mean that you don’t get enough vitamin B12 from the food you eat. Lacking B12 can leave you feeling super tired and lacking energy. If left untreated it can even lead to problems with your nervous system and heart conditions.
If you follow a gluten-free diet, you might be missing out on other important B vitamins as well as vitamin D. When B vitamins are missing from your diet you might find you experience light-headedness, shortness of breath, and get tired really easily.
If you know your diet means you are regularly going to miss out on these essential vitamins, then supplements will help to make sure you get all the goodness you need.
Is it all about diet?
Nope! Lifestyle factors like how active you are and whether or not you spend a lot of time outdoors could also mean you need a little vitamin boost too. Living in the UK’s mild climate means that you can’t rely on the sun for your vitamin D. In fact official NHS advice recommends taking a vitamin D supplement during the autumn and winter months. So unless you want to emigrate to the Caribbean, you should probably top up your vitamin D stash!
You also want to choose your vitamins based on your own health goals and make sure you are keeping yourself in top condition for the long haul. E.g. vitamins A and D help to keep your bones and teeth healthy, while vitamin B6 maintains brain function. Ultimately, making sure your body gets the right balance of vitamins based on your needs is what’s important.
Our pioneering oral strips come in a whole range of supplements to support your nutrition with rapidly dissolving goodness. We’ve combined our vitamins into power-packed supplements with natural flavours to target areas you might need support with such as:
I don’t sleep well
Sleeping badly can have a big impact on your mental health but long-term sleep problems can also put you at greater risk of health problems including heart disease, heart failure and high blood pressure.
Our Sleepy supplement has been designed to help you consistently enjoy a smooth night’s sleep. Vitamin B6 helps you to produce sleep neurotransmitters, melatonin and serotonin, alongside passion flower to lower brain activity and get you relaxing. Our cherry-flavoured concoction will keep you chilled as you head off to dreamland.
I need more energy
