Most people want to take care of their health and wellness, but between work, life, family, and more immediate health issues, it can be especially daunting. How do you know what’s good for you? How do you know what’s not? And who can you trust?
In an effort to support and maintain your health, you likely take a daily vitamin or a multivitamin. Or maybe you don’t but you’re thinking about it. Or maybe you have a whole shelf full of vitamins—but you forget to take them.
It can be hard to develop a daily supplement routine, especially when it requires so much planning ahead. Hand-selecting your supplements, putting them into finicky cases, and remembering how many of each you need can be a challenge. What if you need to take them twice a day? What if you accidentally forget a day? What if you don’t have the time to pre-prep your carrying case?
That’s where customized daily vitamin packs come into play. Customized daily vitamin packs take away all of the work, allowing you to focus on getting—and staying—healthy. Wouldn’t you much rather reach for a convenient, hassle-free, pre-sorted pack every day? Beyond how easy they are, they’re made for YOU. This means you don’t have to worry about taking the wrong supplements or mixing two supplements that shouldn’t be mixed.
BodyLogicMD now offers customized Daily Packs to truly give you fully customized daily supplements. They are prepackaged and sorted into small, discreet packages. To make things easier, they’re labeled with which supplements are included, in addition to what time of day to take the supplement.
When your supplements are customized to your specific needs, you’ll be sure to get exactly what your body needs.
Do You Even Need a Daily Supplement?
The short answer is: it depends. According to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), most adult Americans are deficient in:
- Vitamins A, C, D, and E
If you’re not getting the vitamins you need from your diet (more on that below), then supplementation is probably your best course of action. This might mean you need B vitamins, calcium, or an energy supplement, for example.
Here’s what you should know about eating healthfully for maximum vitamin and nutrient intake.
You’ll want to eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, lentils, fatty acids (often found in fatty fish), beans, and whole grains, all of which provide essential nutrients, according to the National Institutes of Health. In fact, not eating a healthy diet can lead to health problems, including heart disease, cancer, and poor bone health.
And that’s not just a hypothetical. According to the Health and Food Supplements Information Service, as many as 70,000 preventable deaths per year can be attributed to poor diet.
If you want to nosh on delicious food that is rich in vitamins and nutrients, you’ll want to fill your fridge with:
- Sweet potatoes
- Dark chocolate (a minimum of 70% cocoa—and not all the time!)
This list of nutrient-dense foods should help you determine what you should be stocking up on.
Ever hear people say the phrase “empty calories?” Well, it means something. These unhealthy calories come from processed foods, or foods with added sugars, high-fructose corn syrup, and artificial ingredients. When in doubt, eat fresh, whole, organic foods.
If your diet isn’t quite as colorful or as beneficial as your practitioner might recommend, supplements can be quite helpful. They can also be beneficial for those who have absorption issues or chronic diseases, or for those who live in cloudy climates where there is little sunlight (this isn’t just a myth; vitamin D is a big deal!).
How Do You Choose the Best Daily Supplements for Yourself?
First, you can speak with your practitioner about your health and wellness goals, as well as any health conditions or symptoms you may be having. They can help test you for any vitamin and nutrient deficiencies. And this can easily be done with a simple blood test. From that point on, you may want to make note of which foods and supplements you should increase.
BodyLogicMD offers high quality, customized daily solution packs that focus on specific areas and health problems. You can even take a quick survey to find out which supplements may benefit your unique health needs.
Once you fill out the survey, you’ll be shown a list of supplements that may be beneficial to you, in addition to exactly what each supplement does. BodyLogicMD’s pre-built essential daily supplement packs combine supplements that can help tackle all of your needs and maintain your general health.
The best part? BodyLogicMD’s professional-grade supplements are made from only reliable sources and are of the highest-quality ingredients. The products are backed by research and medical expertise, and may help prevent potential health issues as well as support your overall daily health. Each Daily Pack is uniquely packaged with a 28-day supply of your unique daily vitamins.
You’ll also notice that the packs are marked with the time of day you should be taking them—taking all the confusion and mystery out of the process!
Here are three reasons why BodyLogicMD’s customized daily packs may be right for you:
- You can save time. These daily packs contain everything you need and are assembled specifically for you. This takes the legwork out of choosing daily supplements, and it stops you from having to sort, organize, and carry vitamin containers around everywhere you go.
- You can save money. Instead of spending money on potentially harmful or ineffective vitamins, you’ll be getting only professional-grade, potent vitamins from a trusted source. You can also sign up for monthly recurring orders at checkout. The supplements will come right to your door with free shipping.
- You’re getting quality ingredients. In a 2015 piece, The New York Times reported that several popular vitamin brands were selling products containing fillers, additives, and dangerous ingredients. Even worse, some of the products didn’t even contain what they claimed to contain, which defeats the entire point of taking a supplement.
You also want to avoid buying cheap or sale vitamins, which can often be a red-flag for fakes or bad products. Forbes even reported on counterfeit products being sold on Amazon—including supplements! What’s worse is that some sellers will make knock-off supplements look like the ones that you are actually trying to buy!
When it comes down to it, you want to be sure of where your products are coming from.
The high-quality supplements from BodyLogicMD are all pharmaceutical (or professional) grade. In your personalized daily vitamin pack, you’ll only find products from manufacturers that meet the highest standards of safety and quality. Whether you’re looking for mineral supplements or vitamin supplements, BodyLogicMD has everything you need to create your own regimen of customized daily supplements.
BodyLogicMD also offers supplement solution packs aimed at specific health goals. We offer a healthy skin pack, an energy pack, a brain health pack, and a digestive health pack. All BodyLogicMD vitamin packs contain 28 days’ worth of supplements.
In the end, it’s best not to take just any supplement, and it’s even better to consult with a medical professional who has advanced training in nutrition and supplements. Some supplements, if taken inappropriately, can have dangerous side effects or interfere with other medications you may be on. It’s also good to know that some daily supplements may be better as a liquid than a pill. There’s a lot more to it than you may think!
When in doubt, talk to a medical provider or a practitioner within the BodyLogicMD network who can help you find the best vitamins and supplements for your body. You can feel healthy, have energy, and conquer health issues—but it takes a compassionate practitioner, a customized and holistic approach, and the best ingredients on the market. We’re here to provide all of that to you.
