The constant stream of chores and errands, incessant stress from work, and now the relentless threat of the pandemic—these concerns that we may have on the daily, fuel our desire to take better care of our well-being. Nowadays, that most likely means eating better, exercising more, and drinking vitamin supplements to support our general health.
To be at its best, the human body needs an ample amount of nourishment on a daily basis. Being conscious of your diet is a good baseline as the right type of food will be able to provide what your body needs to remain healthy. However, there will be days when our bodies won’t be at its best. There will be days when we’d be so busy that we’d need more energy to stay focused. There will be times when we’d have unexpected breakouts due to hormonal changes in our bodies. There will be nights when we’d feel sniffly and our immune systems would need some help.
When these happen, consider giving your body a vitamin boost. Taking the right type of supplement regularly can not only help you maintain but also help support your general well-being. If you find yourself in this situation more and more often, here’s a list of vitamins your body may require.:

Want to improve your immunity? Take some Vitamin C.
Found in: oranges, kiwifruit, strawberries, lemons…and even bell peppers
Vitamin C is popularly associated with a sour taste because of its citrusy source. It is, however, also popularly known to be an antioxidant that can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases, help manage high blood pressure, help prevent gout attacks and help with iron absorption. The role of Vitamin C in preventing and curing the common cold is unclear, but it is known to support the immune system. This is definitely something your body needs when battling off bacteria and viruses.
Get a boost from: a tablet of Voost Vitamin C every day. Aside from aiding your immune system, this effervescent supplement also helps in iron absorption and improves your skin health.
Muscles aches and cramps? You may need Calcium.
Found in: dairy products, broccoli, kale, fish with edible bones, and soy products
Fact: Bones and teeth are not the only parts of the body that need Calcium. In fact, they serve as the body’s “calcium reservoir” because this mineral is needed for your body to function properly. It helps regulate the beating of your heart. It also makes sure that your muscles are moving and contracting right. So if you feel weaker than usual, despite not having changed anything in your routine or diet, you may want to add dairy products or calcium rich foods to your diet.
Get a boost from: Voost Performance, especially if you’re lactose intolerant as it contains no added dairy, lactose, soy or yeast. This effervescent supplement not only supports muscle performance through 100 mg of Calcium, but is also a good source of Magnesium and Vitamin B complex (more about those later).
Low on energy? Amp up on B vitamins.
Found in: beef, eggs, liver and other organ meats, and some seafood
Each of these “building blocks of a healthy body” contributes to your overall well-being, from making sure your brain, heart, and other main organs are functioning well to making sure your skin, hair and nails remain healthy. They also make sure that you have energy released in your body to help you power through the day. They even have a say in your metabolism, mood, and mental state of mind! So not having enough energy can be caused by many things, and one of the factors is not having sufficient of any of these eight B vitamins in your system.
Get a boost from: an apricot- or peach-flavored Voost Mega B Complex tablet to support your energy production, especially when you have an insufficient source in your meal. Need to maintain/support your mental focus? Take a fizzy orange or mango drink from a tablet of Voost Energy.
In need of mental focus? Remember to get some Magnesium.
Found in: avocados, nuts, dark chocolate, tofu, seeds, and whole grains
300 biochemical reactions. This is the number of bodily functions that need Magnesium for it to take place. Perhaps most essential is its role in regulating your neurotransmitters, your brain’s messengers to the rest of your body. Since it also helps regulate your blood pressure, blood sugar, and other nerve functions, having the right amount of Magnesium is vital when you face the stresses of every day.
Get a boost from: the naturally citrusy Voost Magnesium. Not only does it support the health of your nervous system; it also maintains the health of your muscles and bones.
Exhausted all the time? Time for some Iron.
Found in: oysters, beef liver, lamb, brown rice, whole grains, spinach, and tuna
Imagine this: you’re in a hurry to get to a meeting, the elevator is taking forever, so you take a flight of stairs to the third floor…and end up panting. How can that be? Well, you may be physically fit, but you might be a victim of lack of Iron. We all know that this mineral is essential in having healthy blood, but what we often forget is that these blood cells are produced to carry oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body. When we lack oxygen, we also often feel over-fatigued, have problems concentrating, and are more prone to illnesses.
Get a boost from: Voost Multivitamin which contains 10 mg of Iron, among other important vitamins and minerals. Aside from helping you support your blood health, it also helps reduce free radicals in your body.
Dry and tired skin? You may need extra Collagen.

Found in: fish skin and bone broth
Nowadays, we associate collagen with soft and supple skin. And there is truth in this because collagen is skin—75 percent of its support structure, that is. But while it is the most abundant protein in our body, we also get less and less of it as we age. Add to that late nights, the occasional cigarette, all those party cocktails, and even continuous exposure to the sun, and you’re sure to need collagen supplements…and not only for your skin but also for your joints, bones, muscles, gut, and even your brain.
Get a boost from: a tablet of Voost Collagen that also contains 100 mg of Vitamin C, crucial in your body absorbing collagen.
Having a healthy diet and proper exercise are the basics we need to ensure our well-being, but we all need a little extra from time to time. When you feel like you need to support your energy production, immunity, muscle performance, and your mental focus or revitalize your skin health, consider taking vitamin supplements that are sure to fulfill what your body needs.
If you’re on the lookout for supplements that are easier to consume (especially if you hate drinking pills or tablets), consider effervescent vitamins. The all-natural supplement Voost does not only taste great; it can also be very convenient. Just drop a tablet in your tumbler of water, wait for it to fizz out, and enjoy your drink whether with breakfast or on the go. Learn more about them here.
