These beneficial bacteria can help to play an important role in digestion, supporting the immune system and intestinal health. You’ll find them in tablet, powder and liquid form.
Trend-setting supplements like MCT oils may steal the Instagram spotlight, but multis are a long-standing go-to for good reason. They contain well-documented nutrients — like vitamins E, A, C and magnesium — that can be hard to get from food alone. Look for multivitamins formulated specifically for women, men, kids and certain age ranges.
Herbal adaptogens have been used for centuries to help support energy levels and normal reaction to stress. Some popular adaptogens include ashwagandha and ginseng, plus functional mushrooms like chaga and reishi. There are a lot of ways to add them into your lifestyle, from liquid elixirs and protein powders and more.
4. Plant-Based Protein Powders
Plant-based protein powders are a convenient way to support performance and overall wellness. They come in a variety of flavors (hello, mocha) and can mix up quickly for a creamy, delicious smoothie.
5. Keto-Friendly Protein Powders
These protein powders support a keto-friendly lifestyle. Looking for somewhere to start? Try Ancient Nutrition Keto Protein.
6. Omega-3 EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids)
EFAs are known to support your heart health, brain, mood, joints and skin, hair and nails. They are not naturally occurring in our bodies and must be obtained from food, or in this case, supplements such as fish oil or vegetarian sources such as algal oil. We’re fans of Nature’s Way Ultra-Pure Omega3 Fish Oil Supplement.
7. Collagen Peptides
You’ve likely heard about collagen peptides lately — they’re super trendy. Many people look to collagen peptides to help support their skin, hair, nails, joints and more. Powder varieties are soluble in hot or cold liquids, including coffee, smoothies and even baked goods. Try Vital Proteins to get started.
8. Wellness Shots
These potent shots, like Vive Organic’s, deliver concentrated amounts of beneficial ingredients, making them a quick and easy solution when you’re on the go.
Even though the cannabis industry is booming, CBD oil is still prohibited in food, body care and dietary supplements under federal law. Non-cannabis derived sources from the endocannabinoid system (which are named after the cannabis plant that inspired their discovery), like phytocannabinoids that exist in nature, are also becoming more visible and prevalent due to the growing trend. These plant-based supplements encourage the optimal functioning of your endocannabinoid system to keep your body, mind and spirit in balance. Looking for something in our aisles?

10. MCT Oils
Flavorless, coconut-derived MCT oil is an easy way to add fats to your diet. Mix into hot beverages like coffee or matcha and cold beverages like smoothies. Try Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil.
