My Supplement Routine

Eva Amurri Martino shares her daily vitamin and supplements routine!

It’s been really important to me the past year or so to get in to a consistent routine with my vitamins and supplements.  I’ve found that when I’m consistent with supporting my health, my mood follows suit and I’m just generally a happier, healthier, better version of myself.  It’s really hard for me to stay consistent with it, and I actually made it an intention for the new year last year to be better! I ended up working on a system where I put my vitamins in weekly pill case and then leaving it on the kitchen counter so it will catch my eye and remind me.  

I’ve also managed to find the supplements that seem to really work for me! It’s not easy to develop your own routine, and everybody is different, but today I wanted to share what works for me.  As you know, I’m not a medical professional, so make sure you talk to your own doctor first before changing your supplements.

Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides

I’ve been using these for the past couple of years and I love them! They’re great for boosting your skin, hair, nail, and joint health, and they are flavorless so it’s easy to consume them.  I do a scoop in my coffee or tea in the morning, and one scoop in the afternoon.  It makes my coffee really creamy and I love that I’m getting 18 extra grams of protein just by drinking coffee!

Multivitamin

To be honest, I haven’t found a daily multivitamin that I totally LOVE, and I’ve tried quite a few.  This one is my favorite so far because it’s really easy on my stomach.  I found the brand because I used it for my prenatal vitamin and had a great experience with that.

Vitamin D 

Any time I’ve had my blood tested during pregnancy or after, I’ve had a minor Vitamin D deficiency.  I got in to the habit of supplementing my vitamin d while pregnant, and then I noticed when I stopped taking it I would feel kind of crummy.  So I’ve kept it up! Vitamin D is great for boosting immunity, too. I take 5,000 IU daily.

Biotin

I started taking Biotin six months ago to help my hair and nails, and I’ve been happy with the results– I think it’s been particularly helping my hair grow. I take one capsule a day in the morning.

Probiotic

Probiotics are so important for gut health, immunity, and digestion.  If you take one thing every day, take a probiotic! I always go for high-quality probiotics because you really get what you pay for, and the refrigerated probiotics are where it’s at! Make sure to take your probiotics at least 20 minutes before eating, or in between meals at least an hour after eating.

Zinc

Zinc can be great for stabilizing mood, as well as an immunity booster.  I double up on this supplement if I’m feeling under the weather.

Oil Of Oregano Capsules

This is my wellness secret weapon! Whenever I start to feel under the weather, I take one capsule of this twice a day and I totally swear by it.  It’s such a great natural cold remedy.

Nordic Naturals Omega 3’s (Fish Oil)

The fish oil capsules aren’t pictured here because I ran out and was waiting for them to be delivered (LOL), but taking fish oil every day for skin and organ health is super important to me.  Its also great for brain function! Just call it the anti Mom Brain. Ha! It’s really important to make sure that whatever Fish Oil you take is third party tested, though, to make sure the mercury levels are safe.

    I just started taking the vital proteins collagen peptides and I think it tastes like straight up beef broth. Lol. I’ve just been drinking it in water because I’m scared to ruin my beloved morning cup of tea. Am I crazy? Or does “Unflavored” mean “no added flavors”

    • Omg don’t drink it in water! LOL. I’m sure that tastes disgusting. Put it in milky tea or coffee for added creaminess

      I personally can’t stomach collagen peptides, even in a smoothie! Maybe it’s in my head, but something about the taste overpowers everything else for me. oh well!

      Hey! Some of them definitely do! I like the marine collagen (from Vital Proteins), thought it’s pricey. (Stock up when Whole Foods has their 25% off supplements sale!). I haven’t tried it in coffee recently, but it is tasteless in smoothies.

    This was SO helpful and validates so many of my own choices, thank you for sharing!! I just revamped my supplement routine last month and added the collagen peptides based in an insta story you posted a while back!

    Have you tried this women’s multi?
    https://www.amazon.com/Methylfolate-Methylcobalamin-Multivitamins-Best-Nest/dp/B075SNYXXL/ref=sr_1_3_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1546894629&sr=1-3&keywords=superhero+multivitamin
    In case the link does work, it’s Best Nest Wellness: SUPERHERO

    I recently switched after telling my doctor my tummy was ALWAYS aching after taking my multi so she recommended one with methylated vitamin Bs for easier digestion and utilization by my body – I love it!

    Does the zinc make you nauseated? I have tried so many brands but anything with zinc makes me feel like I’m going to hurl about 10 min after taking it (Multivitamins included). Taking it with a meal helps but that means I forget to take it often. Just wondering if anyone has other solutions?

  5. Take a look at this for your daily vitamin! I use this customized nutrition program from IDLife and it’s tailored to your individual needs. What I like best is that I get comes in daily AM/PM packs and takes the guessing game out of when to take them. Mine comes with vitamin D, probiotics, and biotin..the coolest part is that it automatically ships to my doorstep each month!

    What a perfect post for the New Year! I’ve been wanting to start a supplement regimen for a while, but it’s overwhelming to know where to start, and what brands are best. Thanks for these suggestions!

    The omega-3 is such an important supplement for all. I use the same brand that you do, it is one of the best.

    I like vitamins from Garden of Life because they’re whole food based, organic without fillers and synthetic ingredients. They’ve helped me throughout pregnancy and they don’t upset stomach. They have also omega 3 fish oil, probiotics etc. For vitamin D I like Better You vitamin D spray. I also have one for my newborn. It’s also very natural, extracted from lanolin. It’s supposed to have better absorption than tablets.
