Going through your consultation I can see that you could do with a few different vitamins to top up on the number of fruits and vegetables you eat. For this, I would recommend vitamins A, C and E and turmeric extract. Turmeric extract contains lots of plant micronutrients, such as polyphenols, and is a powerful anti-inflammatory, which makes it extremely healthful in many areas across the body.
Black pepper extract greatly improves the absorption of turmeric extract, so I would include this as well.
You indicated that you are Vegan, which can be healthful for many reasons, but can lead to some micronutrient gaps in the diet. To help ensure your body gets everything it needs, I would propose zinc, vitamin B12, and iron are added to your Vitbox Bespoke formula.
Additionally, as you don't eat dairy, I would recommend calcium and iodine to ensure a healthy thyroid and bones.
As you don’t eat fish, an omega 3 supplement could benefit you. Our vegan omega 3 comes from the same source that fish get it from, algae! DHA, an omega 3 fatty acid, is the main structural component in the brain, eyes and skin cells, and it is very important to include it in the diet, to help with these areas.
Vitamin D can be obtained through foods such as fish, but it is mostly acquired through synthesis when sunlight contacts the skin. The UK government recommends 15 minutes of sun exposure daily to get the right amount of vitamin D, but this can be quite hard due to the weather. As you can't manage to get much sun exposure, I would suggest adding vitamin D to your formula.
In your consultation, you mention that you sometimes suffer from low mood/anxiety. This may be due to low serotonin levels in your brain. 5-HTP, a naturally occurring amino acid, can help to increase the levels of serotonin, as your body uses 5-HTP to make it. Magnesium is very important for brain health and can help with mood. Therefore, I would recommend including both of these in your formula.
Every time you go on a course of antibiotics, it harms your gut health. Gut health is incredibly important to your overall health, from your immune system to your brain. To help increase your gut health, I'd suggest adding a probiotic to your Vitbox Bespoke formula.
Magnesium and the omega 3 fatty acid, DHA, are vital for overall brain health, since you struggle with your focus and memory, I'll make sure there's enough of these in your formula to help with this.
