Top 16 Personalized Supplement Brands

Supplements

Aggressive agriculture of the past century has made the soil devoid of the nutrients it once had. Eating the same foods our grandmas ate won’t nourish our bodies the same way, and that is why supplements have become an essential part of a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

It’s not a question of whether we should be taking supplements, but which ones. This can prove a confusing task for the consumer as we are all unique creatures. A one-fits-all multivitamin approach simply doesn’t cover our unique needs.

The companies described in this post are at the front end of innovation in personalizing supplement formulas, using different approaches to target individuals’ exact deficiencies. Personalized supplementation can lead to achieving health goals faster and more accurately.
