Top 5 Custom Vitamin Pack Brands For A More Personal Solution

Custom Vitamin Packs - Top 5 Brands Offering Personalization

Even if you always do your best to eat a well-rounded diet filled with lots of fruits and vegetables, you likely still have some gaps in your nutrition. Certain vitamins and minerals, like vitamin D and vitamin B2, can be very difficult to get from food alone. This is where taking supplements can come in handy.

Vitamins are especially important if you spend any length of time working out or competing in sports. When you exercise, your body loses important nutrients like vitamin C, zinc, magnesium, and iron. So it’s crucial that you get the daily recommendation of vitamins and minerals in order to maximize both your performance and your results.

And when you imagine buying vitamins and supplements, you probably think of multivitamins, similar to what you might find at Target or Walmart. Unfortunately, the formula for developing a good multivitamin is an imperfect science. How do you narrow down the types of nutrients everyone needs?

The Problem With Multivitamins

When it comes to vitamins, you can definitely have too much of a good thing. Specifically, excessive levels of iron can be toxic and the absorption of too much vitamin A can cause nausea, blurred vision, dizziness, and even liver damage.

So when you go to the store and buy a multivitamin, you may be ingesting vitamins your body doesn’t really need.  And most synthetic multivitamins are full of dyes and fillers.

Of course, the best option would be to work one-on-one with a nutritionist who could assess your nutrition, lifestyle, and health history and make recommendations based off of your specific needs. But that’s simply not feasible for most people.

However, there is another solution; there are a number of companies that offer a custom vitamin pack that actually offer more health benefits than what you’re going to find at the store. For one thing, custom vitamins tend to be of a much higher quality than multivitamins.

And a personalized vitamin regimen allows you to specify what kinds of nutrients you need based on age, lifestyle, and medical history. So the result is an individualized plan just for you. So instead of purchasing a generic, one-size-fits-all vitamin you only you get the nutrients your body actually needs.

The 5 Best Custom Vitamin Companies

But now there are a number of companies trying to sell custom vitamin packs so how do you know what the best option is? After all, if you take a quick look at any popular exercise website you’ll probably find hundreds of nutrition brands. And most of these will offer multivitamins in a variety of pill, capsule, powdered, gummy, or chewable forms.

But the majority of these companies will likely go out of business, like Vitamin World, which filed for bankruptcy in September 2017, closing over 50 locations. And there are many other personalized vitamin companies that no longer exist for one reason or another.

So to help you get started, we’ve narrowed down our list of the five best vitamin companies for you to choose from. It’s time to stop being ‘generic’ and time to go for a personalized vitamin solution.

Here is our list of the top 5 personalized vitamin packs:

Why Do You Need Personalized Vitamins?

Many people who consider themselves to be health-conscious are pretty rigid about reading the list of ingredients. After all, the best way to know whether a portion of food or drink is healthy for you or not is by reading the list of ingredients.

Ironically, most people never look at the ingredient list on their daily multivitamin. Most people simply buy what’s on sale and assume that it’s good enough. Which means you could be buying vitamins that are either giving you too many nutrients or you could be buying low-quality synthetic vitamins.

Either way, there is a better option when it comes to supplementing your diet. By choosing a custom vitamin pack you can ensure that the vitamins you take every day are giving you the personalized nutrition you need. Many people are amazed at the difference in both their energy level and mood after just a few weeks on custom vitamin packs.

    Great write-up! I was comparing Vitamin Packs & Care/of, decided to give Vitamin Packs a try. SO excited to try it out.

    There’s definitely something to say about taking custom vitamins versus multi-vitamins. We’ve been with Vitamin Packs for a few months now and my recent blood work looks better than ever before.

    Other websites comparing the top vitamin packs had some questionable companies listed. Kudos to you for the research. All these companies are definitely legit.

    I love that custom vitamins are a thing now! I used to travel with this giant carrying case of pills, now, can’t even contain my excitement. Simple things, am I right?

    When I took multivitamin it contains low nutritional ingredients.
    As far as I know, to take multi one with optimal dose… will be as big as an egg.
    That’s why one reason for custom pack needs.

    I’m on month 2 of Persona Nutrition. They rock and the vitamin packs are super easy to travel with.

    The Rootine concept is really cool! I’ve seen a bunch of the lifestyle quiz companies but nothing quite like their DNA + blood + lifestyle approach.

    Great vitamin recommendations! It’s important to remember that proper nutrition is most important, then supplementation from the vitamins can assist in living awesome.

    While the idea of personalization sounds amazing, how can it be justified that a truly personal solution can be offered at these price points?

      Hi Phyllis,

      I totally understand your point of view and agree wholeheartedly. Many of these custom vitamin solutions allow you (might require you) to submit blood work, so you’re not ingesting more nutrients than required, which has the potential to be harmful.

      The two companies that come to mind are Baze & Rootine, that work directly with your blood work.

    Has anyone tried Rightamin, I just signed up for their Beta, was wondering if anyone knew what to expect?

    It’s crazy how personalized nutrition has been growing tremendously over the last year or so. Everywhere I turn, there’s some sort of DNA test or pop quiz for testing. On that note, I’ll give Persona a try!
