Anyone who has been through a rough week (month or year…) has likely experienced the desire to supplement—whether that’s elderberries when you’re under the weather or ashwagandha when you just can’t even. While proper diet, rest, and exercise are the foundation of all-over well-being, reaching for a little natural boost is only, well, natural. While I notice an improvement in the way I feel when I supplement (especially with chlorophyll), I also enjoy the ritual involved in popping my vitamins and creating wellness drinks with my trusty vegan wellness tonics (and sometimes with my favorite vegan protein powders). As it turns out, the act of practicing self-care seems to be just as powerful as the stuff I’m taking.
It’s always a good idea to discuss supplementation with your doctor and research the brands and the ingredients to make sure they’re of the highest possible quality and that they don’t pose any contraindications to any medications you’re taking. The following list includes just a few vegan wellness tonics from reputable brands. From better sleep to clearer skin to a supercharged immune system, there’s nothing these handy supplements can’t help with!
5 Best Vegan Wellness Tonics
1. Sakara Beauty + Detox Water Concentrates
With the aim of assisting your body’s natural detoxification process, balancing electrolytes, boosting the health of your skin, and improving cellular function, these convenient wellness droppers are as helpful as they are chic. Beauty Water Concentrate features rose to help fight inflammation and soothe the endocrine system and silica, also known as the “beauty mineral,” to help plump skin cells and support collagen production. Detox water concentrate combines chlorophyll with magnesium to help your body rid itself of heavy metals, boost your energy, and improve digestion and the body’s stress response.
