Smarter Ways to Take Your Supplements

The best gummies, powders and sprays for your needs

Best men's daily supplements in 2021

Do you take vitamins? Even if you don't, you know you probably should. While it's always a good idea to get the bulk of your nutrients and vitamins from whole foods in your diet, supplements are an easy and effective way to boost your intake. After all, most of us aren't exactly eating clean, balanced diets every day—so the likelihood we're getting all the nutrition we need from our food is pretty low. Quality supplements can fill in the gaps.

While most supplements come in the form of pills to pop, standard capsules or tablets, these are a bit boring, right? Now innovative brands are offering options that are as inventive as they are effective. So if you'd prefer to spice things up, try a gourmet gummy or smooth powder or even an instantly absorbing spray for a pleasant way to get your daily dose.

Best Men’s Daily
Supplements in 2021

Powders

Collagen Candy

These might be our favorite of the whole bunch. They live up to the name candy because they're like Pixie Stix mixed with sour gummy worms. Just empty the packet onto the tongue for a post-lunch sour apple pick-me-up. The bonus is that it's free of sugar and comes packed with collagen, hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C that will boost the health of your skin and hair while reducing fine lines—especially around the eyes.

Raw Beauty
Superfood Powder

You want to boost your health fast? This blend boasts more than two dozen superfoods—from wheat grass and spirulina to ginseng and ashwagandha—bursting with antioxidants, adaptogens, probiotics and fiber. All in a versatile powder. The vanilla and sweet berry flavor has a nice taste, especially when mixed into your milk or protein shakes.

Chill Chai Latte

We'll see your standard tea or coffee and raise you this comforting blend of spices and botanicals. Reishi mushrooms—a staple in Eastern medicine—is a heart-healthy supplement that fights fatigue and balances blood sugar. Another mushroom, known as turkey tail, supports immunity, gut health and general wellbeing. Add those to a warming tea that's delicious on its own or combined with any type of milk for a smooth chai latte.

Sprays & Tonics

Muscle Recovery Tincture

When you've overdone it on a workout, this little dropper offers quick relief. Each dose of this citrus-tinged tincture delivers an industry-high 333mg of activated cannabidiol oil and 25mg of Echinacea. CBD has been the subject of dozens of clinical trials for profound anti-inflammatory properties and Echinacea is known as a powerful herb renowned for its therapeutic qualities. The naturally derived coconut oil is just sweet enough that this stuff is great straight from the bottle.

Anxiety Ally

If you find that you're constantly battling work stress or just generally overly anxious, this is your new secret weapon. This brand, founded in an Appalachian mountain farmers' market stall, is known for quality and potent ingredients. Here, a blend of holy basil, ashwagandha, milky oat, lavender and skullcap will “take you through a portal to peace in distress, disaster or daily disruptions.”

Vitamin D Spray

According to recent statistics, nearly 42% of adults in the United States are vitamin D deficient (and the number goes up for Latinos and African Americans). So most of us could use more of this essential vitamin—known for supporting calcium and phosphorus absorption, boosting brain function and maintaining healthy bones and teeth. This high-potency spray provides nearly four times the recommended daily value with just three spritzes under the tongue.

$25 by The Nue Co.

Gummies

Complete Calm
De-Stress Gummies

These tasty gummies make use of a blend of time-trusted roots, mushrooms and a key saffron extract to fight back against the build-up of daily stress and anxiety. What's more, studies found that with regular use, the majority of people taking these gummies were more optimistic and less anxious. Effects build over time, so the more you take it the better it works. The only question is, do you prefer Sicilian lemon with ginger or blood orange with cayenne?

Apple Cider
Vinegar Gummies

If the idea of downing a gulp of apple cider vinegar—shown to aid in digestion and gut health—isn't that appealing, this is your solution. Boasting a daily dose of apple cider vinegar and vitamin B12, each apple-flavored chew helps to support your microbiome and immune health, while naturally boosting your energy.
