By Danielle Fontana , Associate Editor |
Supplements are a tricky topic. Their benefits are obvious, so carving out one or two minutes every day to take them should be a no-brainer. But with every multivitamin purchase or collagen supplement we add to our carts, it's one more bottle that will soon begin to collect dust. If this sounds all too familiar, consider these 10 options that are so pretty and hugely effective, you’ll never “forget” to take your supplements again.

These organic dark cacao chocolates (they’re made with low-glycemic coconut sugar) taste like a daily indulgence, but each bite-size piece contains 70 mg of plant-based, collagen-boosting phytoceramides, clinically proven to improve skin’s elasticity, hydration and texture in just two weeks.
Boasting a high dose of vitamin B12, this delicious caffeine-free, sweet-meets-sour treat (it’s best when diluted with a little bit of water) easily replaces my daily cup of coffee and gets my mornings off to the right start. Plus, the added benefit of hyaluronic acid for youthful-looking skin never hurts, either.
Care/of (prices vary based on the vitamins, but start at $5 a month)
These vitamins have your name on them—literally. After completing a thorough questionnaire that touches on everything from your age, lifestyle and primary health concerns, a personalized daily vitamin pack will be customized based on your answers. You’ll then be walked through each selection and explained why each vitamin was chosen before deciding which you’d like to keep or remove from your pack. Your remaining monthly selection will finally be sent straight to your door, complete with your name on each pouch (so you won't want to stow them away!).
OLLY Flawless Complexion ($14)
Designed to beat the negative effects stress, pollution and poor diets can often display on our faces, these delicious berry-flavored gummies are packed with vitamins A and E (to ward off free-radical damage), zinc and selenium (to support new cell production and detoxification), and essential botanicals like spearmint and dandelion root to constantly purify skin of toxins in the yummiest way possible.
There’s nothing worse than a bloated stomach that just won’t budge. Organic ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, maqui, brown rice protein and Inulin (a prebiotic) work in tandem to save the day in this anti-inflammatory powder booster designed to soothe bloated stomachs and stabilize blood sugar levels. Simply add a spoonful to your favorite smoothie to keep bloating at bay.
Each of these gummies is packed with good-for-your-hair nutrients like biotin, zinc, PABA (to help maintain vibrant hair color), folic acid (to support hair growth) and fo-ti (a root used in Chinese medicine for healthy strands), though you wouldn’t know it from the addictively sweet taste you’d think to check the candy aisle for (but don’t worry, they’re fully vegan-, gluten-, soy- and dairy-free).
Available in individual pouches for on-the-go convenience or 9-ounce canisters to keep at home, these delicious offerings (available in Cucumber Aloe, Melon Mint and Lavender Lemon flavors) deliver a refreshing, spa-inspired twist to your usual routine. Even better, each sip is bursting with flavor and marine collagen, natural hyaluronic acid and probiotics to deliver bright, dewy skin, stronger hair and nails and a healthier gut and digestive system.
Brimming with essential vitamins and minerals, this gluten-free protein formula not only promotes muscle growth, strength and recovery post- and pre-exercise, but also works to speed up your metabolism and burn fat with help from green tea. Replace your usual protein powder with a scoop of this delicious powder and you'll never look back.

These nutrients are the ones women lack most, so when taken twice a day, you'll notice more energy, less stress and a more youthful-looking appearance.
