Curious to know which supplements we mean? Keep reading to find out. 

Collagen

Collagen is essential—it is the most abundant protein in the human body and is found in our bones, skin, muscles, tissue, cartilage, and tendons. Collagen is a necessary building block, as it is responsible for your skin’s structure and elasticity, among other vital human features and processes.[4] 

So, why take a supplement at all?  

Hey Nutrition Collagen Complex comes into play because, as you age, your natural collagen production begins to deplete. Not to mention, everyday things like excessive sun exposure, smoking, alcohol, and a lack of sleep or exercise can also cause your collagen production to drop.[4

Your body will thank you when you start taking our Collagen Complex. We crafted a formula with a potent super blend of nutrients like Hyaluronic Acid and Sea Kelp so you get the most out of what you’re taking. It’s made right here in the UK without GMOs, pesticides, artificial flavours, or dairy.

Multivitamins

According to the UK government, a balanced diet full of leafy greens and fruits should provide ample amounts of the recommended daily vitamin and mineral intake. However, experts also mention that this is with the exception of vitamin D and certain people suffering from nutritional gaps or deficiencies. Nutrient requirements vary according to age, sex, and physiological state (such as during pregnancy and lactation), so it’s always important to consult your healthcare provider for the proper guidance.[1,2]

Because vitamins and minerals are essential micronutrients our bodies need to function, but they can’t be synthesized by our bodies alone, supplementation becomes super important to our everyday dietary needs. [3] 

Where can you find the best multivitamin with sufficient doses in today’s supplement market? 

Queue our very own Hey Nutrition Multivitamins & Minerals. Our Multivitamin consists of 13 key vitamins, plus additional minerals to establish optimal health. Our formula contains ingredients that are shown to help boost energy, promote cardiovascular health, support immune function, improve metabolism, support better vision, maintain teeth and gum health, protect joints and cartilage, and more. 

Ashwagandha

In 2018, a nationwide survey found that 74% of UK adults had felt so stressed throughout the year they were overwhelmed or unable to cope as a result.[12] That’s roughly 3 in 4 Brits! 

Stress and anxiety are normal human conditions we all struggle with from time to time. If you ever feel a bit blue or stressed during your day-to-day bustle, you need to try our Hey Nutrition Ashwagandha Complex

Ashwagandha is a clinically proven ancient herb, used for centuries in a traditional medicine practice called Ayurveda. Research shows that Ashwagandha is a powerful adaptogen capable of enhancing the body’s resilience to stress, so you can find peace and relaxation amidst a chaotic schedule. [5,6,7]

Fish Oil

Hey Nutrition Omega-3 Fish Oil is another supplement staple you need in your cabinet. 

Omega-3 fatty acids are important for optimal heart, eye, and brain health. Research shows that fish oil can fight inflammation and may help prevent heart disease and a decline in brain function.[11] If you don’t eat a lot of fish, you should be including fish oil in your daily diet regimen.

Probiotic

Did you know that your gut connects to nearly every facet of your overall health? It’s true when they say that good health begins in your gut. That’s because your gut is home to over 39 to 300 trillion microscopic bacteria, some of which are promoters of things like [9,10]

  • Supports gut health
  • Immune health support
  • Support a healthy energy-yielding metabolism
  • Help contribute to the normal function of digestive enzymes

Probiotics are the “friendly” bacteria in your GI tract that help maintain healthy and balanced bodily processes—even support a normal Gut-To-Brain Axis. Probiotics are also helpful in protecting against harmful GI microorganisms that can throw your wellness off balance.[9,10] No one wants that! That’s where our Hey Nutrition Probiotic Complex come in. They’re formulated with broad-spectrum probiotic strains for maximum efficacy, so you reap all the benefits. 

Our unique formula helps to establish optimal health where it matters the most: in the gut. It effectively works on supporting your immune health and promoting better digestion (with over 20 billion CFU per serving), so you can establish body harmony and feel great every day! Plus, we included nutrient essentials like calcium, zinc, and inulin for even more benefits.
