A few days ago, I polled my instagram following about content they would like to see. “The Supplements I Take Every Day” was a clear winner! I have been working on a more natural, holistic approach to my health for several years now, which is why I was interested in figuring out which supplements would help me live my best life. It’s important to note that everyone is different. What works for me, may not work for you. However, I have spent hours and hours researching and working with my doctor to figure out what my body needs. It took me such a long time and I hope my suggestions below can help you save some time and start feeling your best.
So, to start, I want to go over a few of my health challenges.
1. Psoriasis/Autoimmune dysfunction
2. Low energy
3. Anxiety, depression, hormonal issues
Also, I can’t swallow pills. So all of these supplements are in gummy form. You’re welcome! ;)
With that said, I am not a doctor nor psychologist. I am only speaking from my personal experience and am not presenting this as medical advice. Please see my full disclaimer at the bottom of this post.

My personal favorites! I started taking these to improve the health of my microbiota (gut health) and have seen nothing but positive results from it. My immune system has improved, my digestive system is working properly, and these taste really good!
Vitamin D3 is helpful for mood, memory, and bone health and most people do not consume enough of it through the foods they eat. I began taking this for my psoriasis issues, but it is also very helpful in the winter months when I typically experience seasonal depression.
These are SO important. I originally took these to help with low energy, but later learned how amazing they are for depression while reading Dr. Kelly Brogan’s book, A Mind of Your Own (highly recommend by the way!). They are also beneficial for brain health, prenatal health, and sleep.
Happy Healthy Hippie Joy-Filled Supplement
I don’t take these every day, but when I do I empty the contents into my morning smoothie. These amazing supplements have St. John’s Wort, Ashwaganda, Gingko Biloba, and much more to help support mental health.
For a long time, I would take melatonin to help me fall asleep. I would experience horrible, very realistic nightmares that would have me shaken up all day and it was SO HARD for me to wake up in the mornings. These have helped me so much with insomnia (with no bad dreams!) and with anxiety in general. Just check out the reviews on Amazon, they have helped so many.
THESE. These have been my saving grace for my hormones right around my menstrual cycle. I have PMDD, which is like PMS x 1000 emotionally. Two weeks out of every month I was experiencing such intense emotions that ranged from pure rage, to tearful depression, and even suicide ideation. My doctor gave me a prescription for antidepressants to help, but I wasn’t comfortable taking them. I did a ton of research on natural supplements to find something that could help me get better and took a chance on these FLO gummies and they have been working wonders in my life. To the point that during my last cycle, I pointed out to my husband that I didn’t even cry once! If you have a tough time during PMS, I cannot recommend these enough.
