I think in life you are categorized into two buckets: supportive or against. When it comes to vitamins and supplements, there are the nay-sayers who think it’s a bunch of pixie dust, or there are the curious supporters who are willing to try whatever wellness supplement is on the market to achieve their desired results. I would say I’m a curious supporter who regularly takes a multivitamin and has recently been ramping up my supplement usage. If they say beauty starts on the inside, then we should definitely give it all the extra boost we can when there are a huge range of great products on the market to easily adapt to your lifestyle.

From their educational social media posts to their friendly customer service, it’s a subscription vitamin service I am wholly on board with.

BCAA vitamins are essential amino acids that aren’t made by the body and must be obtained from your diet. They help with protein synthesis (or muscle recovery) and therefore aid in hair growth. Keratine, a BCAA vitamin, is one of the main component’s that makes up the hair shaft. It is thought that increasing your BCAA intake may speed up hair growth and possibly repair damaged follicles.

I would like to thank Jamie Lee Curtis for really setting the probiotics industry on fire after she partnered with Activia. If you’re going to take one supplement out of this list, let it be a probiotic. Having good gut health is linked to avoiding sickness, good digestion, and fight harmful bacteria. (source)
