Whether you actually wrote down a list of New Year’s resolutions or simply reflected on some intentions for the months ahead, chances are you have at least one or two goals for 2022 related to health and wellness. Maybe you want to put more focus on your nutrition or on staying physically active. Whatever your aims, a supplement regimen can support you in meeting them.* Here are three tips for building a wellness routine that works for you and that you’ll want to stick with all year long.
#1. Start with a Solid Foundation: Cover Your Bases with a MultivitaminA healthy, balanced diet is key to overall well-being. Eating an array of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, legumes, and lean proteins is the best way to help your body get the essential nutrients it needs to function correctly. Essential nutrients are the vitamins and minerals your body can’t make on its own or in sufficient quantities and that must come from foods or supplements.
Of course, not everyone eats an optimal diet—and not all the time. Not to mention, no eating plan is “perfect.” In other words, sometimes it’s difficult to get all the essential nutrients you need from your diet alone. A multivitamin can help fill in nutritional gaps and set the foundation for maintaining overall good health.* Your doctor or healthcare practitioner can advise if a multi is right for you and your family members.
As mentioned above, vitamins help your body work as it should. There are 13 essential vitamins your body requires for normal cell function, growth, and development. They all have specific jobs to do. For example, vitamins B6, A, and E all help the body maintain its natural immune defenses, while B6 and other B vitamins are also involved in energy production.1,2
For adults, Floradix® offers Epresat®, a plant-based liquid multivitamin with seven essential vitamins—A, B1, B2, B3, B6, D, and E—blended with traditional herbs, including milk thistle and echinacea, to promote optimal health.* It is specially formulated to support energy, muscle function, and the immune system so you can stay feeling your best.* What’s more, it’s easily absorbed and gentle to digest; is sweetened only with fruit juice concentrates; and is vegetarian, non-GMO, gluten-free, lactose-free, and alcohol-free, with no artificial additives or preservatives.*
Children may not always get the nutrients they need through diet, especially if they’re picky eaters. Our Kinder Love® children’s multi contains the vitamins little ones need for immune health and healthy growth and development—A, B6, B12, D, and E—along with important minerals, in a great-tasting, fruit-forward, vegan liquid they’ll love.* Like our adult formula, it is easily absorbed, gentle to digest, non-GMO, and gluten-, lactose-, and alcohol-free, with no artificial additives or preservatives.*
#2. Make It Uniquely Yours: Add in Mineral Supplements That Meet Your NeedsIn addition to vitamins, the body requires minerals to stay healthy. It needs larger amounts of some minerals, known as macrominerals—such as calcium and magnesium—and smaller amounts of others, called trace minerals, which include iron. As is the case with vitamins, each mineral has a specific role or roles to play in the body.3
For instance, iron is essential for delivering oxygen to all of our tissues and cells so they can produce energy, while magnesium, found in our bones, helps the body form proteins and helps control muscle and nerve function, though that's not all these minerals do (click the links here for more details).4
Based on your individual needs, continue to build out your routine with minerals to ensure your body is supported.* Talk with your doctor or healthcare practitioner to determine which mineral supplements are right for you.
IronMenstruating women, pregnant women, vegetarians and vegans, those over the age of 50, and athletes are most at risk for iron deficiency. If you fall into one of these categories, you may want to have your doctor check your levels and discuss adding an iron supplement to your routine.
Floradix is proud to be America’s #1 liquid iron brand, with three trusted, high-quality iron products designed to help you stay energized and feeling your best so you can maintain your healthy, active life.*†
• Floradix® Iron + Herbs is the best-selling natural liquid iron supplement in the US Natural Channel today and contains 10 mg of nutritional iron—along with vitamin C, essential B vitamins, and herbal extracts—in a gentle-to-digest and easily absorbed vegetarian formula. *†
•Floravital® Iron + Herbs is a yeast-free, gluten-free, and vegan alternative to our best-selling formula. It provides the same trusted iron support in a format that meets your needs.*
•Floradix® Iron Tablets are great when you need an iron supplement you can take on the go; they’re convenient, easy to swallow, and vegetarian.*
Your body counts on calcium to build and maintain strong bones and teeth. Dairy is one source of calcium, so if you follow a vegan diet, are lactose intolerant, or otherwise limit your consumption of dairy products, you may want to consider a calcium supplement. Some medications or conditions may also increase your risk for calcium deficiency.5
Each serving of our Floradix® Calcium liquid contains 200 mg of calcium, along with vitamin D to support calcium absorption, in a gentle-to-digest, plant-based formula that tastes great thanks to mango and orange juice concentrates.*
We also offer Floradix® Calcium & Magnesium, which provides 150 mg of calcium plus 180 mg of magnesium, with vitamin D and zinc.
Both our Calcium and Calcium & Magnesium formulas are non-GMO, vegetarian, and gluten- and alcohol-free—with no artificial additives or preservatives.
MagnesiumResearch suggests magnesium deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in the United States, with older adults and those with certain health conditions most at risk.
Floradix® Magnesium liquid contains 250 mg of easily absorbable magnesium per serving and is formulated to help release muscle tension and stress as well as support healthy nerve function and energy levels.* Like calcium, magnesium also plays a role in supporting the health of bones and teeth.* This great-tasting formula is non-GMO, vegan, kosher, lactose-free, and alcohol-free, with no artificial additives or preservatives.
While not a mineral-based formula, our Gallexier® Herbal Bitters are a good add-in to your routine if and when you need digestive support.* Gallexier is alcohol-free and designed to be taken before or after a meal to support healthy digestion, relieve occasional upset stomach or indigestion, and soothe the stomach during times of occasional stress.* This plant-based liquid extract contains a blend of more than 10 bitter herbs, including artichoke leaf, dandelion leaf, gentian root, turmeric root, and bitter fennel seed—plus fruit juices. You can take it straight from the provided serving cup or mix it into drinks, like these tasty mocktails.
#3: Sprinkle in Some Fun: Boost Your Routine with BeetsYou want to create a supplement routine that you want to follow. Great-tasting liquid formulas, like those mentioned above, help make a wellness routine enjoyable and one you’re likely to stick with for the long haul. So do powder-type supplements, which can be added to all manner of recipes for fun in the kitchen.
To round-out your routine, try adding in a superfood supplement like our Red Beet Crystals, which are crafted from the juice of freshly harvested organic beets to provide an easy way to add all the benefits of this superfood (one of the world’s most nutritious vegetables!) to any dish or drink. They’re naturally sweet-tasting and instantly soluble, making them great additions to baked goods, soups, salad dressings, you name it. They’re vegan, non-GMO, and Certified Organic, so you can feel good about using them in your meals. Check out some of our favorite Red Beet Crystals recipes, from a scrumptious salad to a bold smoothie bowl.
