As women, we are inundated with messages of self-care, and its importance on our physical and mental well-being. This is such a positive message for us to hear and share, but as with anything, it can be daunting if you don’t know where to start. Before you book a spa day or go all-out with the bath bombs, consider starting with a small daily ritual that can have a big impact on your well-being: taking a daily multivitamin.
Part of our modern, busy and hectic lives is trying to find the time to eat healthy foods and be mindful of what we put in our bodies. Despite trying our best, data shows that it isn’t always enough. In fact, a study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition looked at changes in food composition for 43 garden crops from 1950 to 1999. As a group, the 43 foods that were studied showed declines in 6 areas: protein, calcium, potassium, iron, riboflavin and ascorbic acid.¹ So, even when we prioritize fresh whole foods, we are likely missing the mark. Taking a daily multivitamin is a great way to ensure you’re getting the nutrition you need to feel your best,* when diet alone might be falling short.
Even if you’re sold on a multi, convenience is king in this day and age, so it’s important to select a multivitamin that works for you and your busy schedule - after all, the best multivitamin for you is the one you'll remember to take! This is where some alternative multivitamin forms can be a great choice!

Modeled after our One Daily tablet line, these multi powders make missing nutrition a non-issue with one convenient scoop tossed into your favorite beverage.
