As I was packing up our cabinets the other day, looking at all of the vitamins and supplements we use reminded me to write this post. We have transitioned to buying so many things from Amazon that our garage has a never-ending supply of cardboard boxes – it’s just so easy and inexpensive to order everything with Prime! 😉 I thought I’d share my Amazon favorites in the healthy living category – these are tried and true products that are almost always cheaper via Amazon Prime.
Amazon Favorites for Healthy Living
Orgain Organic Protein Powder – This is hands down my favorite protein powder! I love that it’s organic and vegan (since I don’t eat dairy/whey) and the flavor is great. I use it in everything from protein pancakes to edible cookie dough to smoothies and more.
Orgain Collagen Peptides – I actually tried this brand for the first time thanks to the Orgain team sending a canister my way, but I liked them so much that I now regularly use and recommend these to everyone!
Nature’s Way Elderberry Gummies – I used to keep elderberry syrup on hand for when we were starting to feel under the weather, but the syrup didn’t taste great and I couldn’t get my girls to take it daily to keep their immune systems strong. So we switched to gummies and never looked back! They both take these daily and I swear it has helped keep sickness at bay. I haven’t taken them while pregnant, but I did prior to being pregnant and I’ll start back after, too!
Olly Restful Sleep Gummies – I tried a mini pack of these because I’d heard good things about them and I really felt like my sleep was deeper and more restful. I stopped taking them when I found out I was pregnant, but I can’t wait to give these another try!
Olly Kids’ Multivitamin + Probiotic – The girls love these gummy vitamins and I love that they contain probiotics, too. I had been giving them a separate probiotic, but this makes things so easy and again, seems to have kept them from getting sick!
Nature’s Way Activated Charcoal – This is my go-to secret remedy anytime someone catches a stomach bug in our house! Spoiler alert: it’s always the girls that bring it home. Ha. As soon as someone is sick, I start popping activated charcoal immediately and take the max dosage each day. I can’t say for sure it’s a miracle worker for everyone, but so far, I’ve used it twice when we had sickness in our house and the first time, I only felt sick for several hours and the next time, I avoided it altogether! I will always keep this on hand – I swear by it.
Neocell Super Collagen – This was the first brand of collagen I used and also really liked it. The best part about this one is the price – it’s so much less expensive than most brands and it offers the same health benefits. Sometimes it goes on and off of Prime availability, which can be annoying but it’s usually back within a few days!
Vitafusion Prenatal Gummies – These are my go-to prenatal vitamins that I’ve taken with every pregnancy. I actually started out taking a capsule type with my first pregnancy and it made me so nauseous, which is why I switched to gummies. These taste great and have the same nutrients and benefits of other types of prenatals.
Emergen-C Vitamin C Packets – We like to keep these on hand for those times where we start feeling a cold kick in. In addition to elderberry, of course!
