I heard about Vitl through a friend who was always into trying alternative health crazes. She had tried the personalised vitamin subscription for 3 months and absolutely raved about it and how great she felt in herself, so, on a whim, I decided to give it a go.
I’m into health myself, and am somewhere between vegetarian and vegan, so I am always interested in learning more about diet and supplementation. I’m prescribed vitamin D by my GP because I’m deficient, but I also have about 15 other little bottles of vitamins on my dressing table which I’ve bought to try (and largely gave up on).The issue I’ve always had is that it’s such a minefield out there with vitamins – the media feed you so much contradictory information about what you should and shouldn’t be taking, and with so many options out there it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with choice. I had absolutely no idea what to take and was simply guessing about what might be good for me.
This is why I found Vitl so great – it takes all of the guessing out of the equation through its quick and easy health questionnaire. The questionnaire takes less than 5 minutes to complete and is made up of simple, multiple choice questions about health, lifestyle and habits such as sleep, energy levels, diet and mood. It even allows you to choose specific goals of what you hope to achieve through your personalised vitamin packs. Personally, my goals were to improve my sleep, feel more energised throughout the day and reduce stress/anxiety. The latter was particularly important to me because I know that stress can have adverse effects on other areas of your life such as immunity and productivity.
Upon completing the health questionnaire, Vitl recommended a personalised pack, consisting of four unique pills. What was really useful was that Vitl explains to you what each pill is designed to do and offers detailed information about the ingredients and benefits of each vitamin. This information is broken down into clear language that is easy to understand, so you aren’t expected to be a scientist!
The first pill Vitl recommended to me was an active probiotic. I’d heard lots about these before but had never committed to taking them regularly. This pill targeted my gut health as well as my skin health, as I’d reported that I often have bad skin and digestive issues. Similarly, the second pill was an energy complex made up of 14 different nutrients. I have genuinely been really impressed with the results of these. I don’t know if it’s a combination of the whole pack or just these two pills, but after taking my personalised vitamins for 21 days now, I barely ever get that tired, sluggish feeling that used to creep in after lunch every day and my skin is glowing (less acne / eczema too).
The third personalised pill in my pack is a tranquillity blend, containing 8 nutrients including Magnesium and Lemon Balm to target stress and sleep. These ingredients are known to support psychological function in order to help regulate mood and sleep patterns. As someone who struggles with falling asleep every night, and waking frequently throughout the night, I have found this recommendation a huge help in setting a balanced sleep routine. The final pill in my pack was a magnesium – calcium complex. This pill is aimed at supporting healthy functioning of the nervous system and muscular function. In the questionnaire I had mentioned that, as I’ve recently started going to the gym, I’d like some support with muscle gain – something this blend is perfect for.
One of the best things that I’ve found about Vitl is that, unlike highstreet brands, Vitl vitamins are completely natural and are free of any fillers or nasty ingredients (they are non GMO!). Another great thing is that all the ingredients are in the most pure and absorbable form, so you have the highest chance of really benefiting from them. This really gives you peace of mind that what you’re putting into your body is doing nothing but benefitting you. Similarly, I love that Vitl creates blends for you in line with your dietary requirements. Being vegetarian, I’d struggled in the past with vitamins containing gelatine and other meat-containing extracts that I wasn’t comfortable taking. With Vitl, your blend incorporates any allergies, intolerances, or dietary requirements you have, so you can take your pack with total peace of mind.
Your personalised pack of vitamins is delivered to your door every 28 days, so you never have to worry about running out or going to buy more, and the parcel fits through your letterbox so you don’t even need to be home to receive it! I cannot recommend Vitl enough if you’re looking to streamline your vitamin intake – and now is the best time to try it, as Vitl is running a two week free trial on their personalised vitamin pack!
If you’ve read this far, thank you for listening to me waffle on – now go and reward yourself by trying Vitl vitamins!
