6 Health Supplements You Should Take Daily

6 Health Supplements You Should Take Daily

Although most of us try to maintain a healthy diet and eat nutrient-rich foods every day, sometimes life can make meal-planning difficult. It’s therefore important to have a solid back-up plan for those busy days. 

Read on to find out why we recommend taking the following supplements every day.

Vitamin D3 + K2

Short, cold winter days are a serious obstacle for vitamin D absorption, the sunshine supplement. When considering a daily vitamin, look for one that’s combined with K2 - research shows promising outcomes for this stellar combination. [1]

Both of these vitamins help your body store and use calcium effectively. Vitamin D3 improves your calcium absorption, and vitamin K2 influences where that calcium will be used. [2]

These two vitamins are essential for a number of processes in your body, such as preventing the calcification of soft tissues (like blood vessels or tissue surrounding your organs), and maintaining strong, healthy bones. [3]

Magnesium Bisglycinate

Evidence has shown that nearly two-thirds of the western world is not consuming the recommended daily allowance of magnesium. 

As magnesium can help prevent a number of health problems, including migraines, diabetes, asthma, PMS, and various cardiac arrhythmias, it’s important to ensure you’re consuming enough as part of a balanced diet or taking a daily supplement. [4]

This super supplement also helps maintain optimal muscle, bone, and nerve function in the body. [5] Magnesium bisglycinate is the most effective and bioavailable type of supplement, as it absorbs easily and is the least likely to induce undesirable side effects (such as an upset stomach) compared to other forms of magnesium.

Organic Greens Drinks

A sure fire way to get a wide variety of essential nutrients in the form of a delicious drink is to make your smoothies or juices with organic greens powder.

Our organic greens drink contains kale, spirulina, spinach, wheatgrass, seagreens, chlorella, inulin, and Lactospore probiotic. These were selected carefully for their nutrient density and with cost efficiency in mind, so that you can consume vital nutrients easily.

You may experience an energy boost after consuming organic greens, as the combination provides the body with essential nutrients such as iron and vitamins A, C, E, K, and B2. 

A study also found that drinking greens supplements can help people with hypertension or cardiovascular issues lower their blood pressure. [6]


Lactospore is an advanced type of probiotic, namely a spore-forming probiotic. This may sound unappetising, but spore-forming probiotics are much more effective than regular probiotics.

A study has found that Bacillus coagulans (the good bacteria in Lactospore) can help people with gut-related problems reduce their bloating and abdominal pain if taken regularly. [7]

And when you have more ‘good’ bacteria in your gut, this may help combat the toxins from alcohol, smoking, and all the processed food and pollution we come into contact with and ingest on a daily basis. With IBS, leaky gut, and other health conditions running rampant, Lactospore helps maintain good gut health. [8]

Marine Collagen

Choosing a wild-caught marine collagen supplement will help support sustainable practices as well as maintain a healthy amount of amino acids in your body. 

The collagen in this supplement increases elasticity and strength in your connective tissues, such as cartilage, tendons, and ligaments, which is beneficial for everyone, but especially people who like to stay active and are subject to a lot of wear and tear.

In addition, the amino acids in collagen are essential for keratin production, which makes up healthy hair and nails. Furthermore, a study in 2013 showed how collagen supplements can tighten skin and improve its elasticity as you age. [9] 

Krill Oil

There has been a rise in public concern about the negative health effects of fish farming and consuming fish with high levels of toxins in their systems - because these toxins eventually make their way to us!

A krill oil supplement is a great way to get your daily intake of Omega 3 and antioxidants, and is linked to a wealth of health benefits, including:

  • Improved cognitive function
  • Reduced cholesterol
  • Cellular repair
  • Anti-inflammation
  • Reduced PMS symptoms
