Meet Care/of, a new company, founded by Craig Elbert and Akash Shah, that specializes in bespoke supplements catered to the individual. New users are led through an online questionnaire that covers their history, diet, lifestyle and health goals. The answers are then run through an algorithm that measures them against years of peer-reviewed research, resulting in a unique cocktail of vitamins, minerals, herbals, and probiotics, shipped right to your door, all about $1 to $2 a day.
Here you can see my own personal recommended pill pack. I elected to only have 5 vitamins a day, not including my multi, which I get from Vitamin Shoppe and you compare to your multivitamin selection. The majority of the vitamins are for brain and heart function. Which I think are more important than the rest, but that’s my bodies needs. Between CoQ10 and Astaxanthin, I feel stronger in my memory retention, but Bacopa might be the main vitamin that’s helping create better brain functions. You can read more on the vitamin and it’s research tested, it’s also been said to help relieve occasional stress.
Rhodiola is a powerful herb with many clinical studies touting its effects on concentration and cognitive function. Astaxanthin is an antioxidant, helping athletes fight oxidative stress. Vitamin C has long been studied for its effect on the immune system. Most research for CoQ10 supplementation has been related to the cardiovascular system along with muscle function.
The quality of vitamins is going to make a huge difference in your diet. You want to go for the cheaper option and buy in bulk, you can and by all means. I know from my own history that when I buy in bulk, many times I forget to take my vitamins & minerals and over time they expire and are wasted. This sounds silly, but knowing I have a set amount that I have to take daily so that I finish the box before the next shipment comes out really helps. Keeps me going and knowing I have to take the next set.
