Summer is here—and with it the opportunity for outdoor adventures, travel, events, and time with friends and family. You have big plans, and you don’t want to miss any of them. So, we’ve rounded up our must-have supplements for your summer wellness routine. No matter what’s on your calendar through September, they’ll help keep you feeling your best so you can make the most of the season.
Don’t Go Without Digestive Support
Whether you’re traveling to another country or attending every neighborhood picnic and potluck this summer, there’s a good chance you’ll enjoy foods you may not typically eat—and that may not fully agree with you.
If you don’t already take a probiotic, now’s a good time to add one to your regimen. After all, for a healthy gut, you need a diverse mix of these beneficial bacteria. Before you head out on a trip or at the start of the season, consider working in a daily probiotic supplement, like our Men’s Mycrobiome or Women’s Mycrobiome, to support your overall digestive function.* To promote a healthy gut response when you need an additional helping hand, turn to our Urgent Care formula.*
For more fast-acting support with your meals, count on digestive enzymes such as pancreatin, pepsin, and papain. They help your body break down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. Our award-winning Super Digestaway contains a powerful blend of these and other potent enzymes to help comfort and support your digestive system when you need it most.* We also offer a vegan Digestaway formula.

Be Ready for Occasional Stress
Summer travel can be nerve-racking. So too can keeping up with your family’s new seasonal schedule, playing host to visitors, and the list goes on.
A variety of herbs can help provide support during times of occasional stress, especially herbs known as adaptogens.* As their name suggests, adaptogens help the body adapt to and better cope during trying times.*
One of the most well-known adaptogens? Ashwagandha, which anchors our SharpMind Stress formula, designed to promote relaxation and support a healthy response to circumstantial stress.*
Rhodiola is another popular adaptogen, long prized in Ayurvedic and traditional Chinese medicine for its ability to help the body copy with stress in a healthy way, as well as support overall mood and mental energy.*
Have Help On Hand for Sleep
If you’re taking a vacation, you may find yourself in a different time zone and dealing with jet lag, or just having trouble sleeping away from home. Even if you’re staying put, you’re likely on a different routine, especially if you have kids out of school, and your sleep schedule may be out of whack.
Melatonin is one of the most used sleep aids out there—for good reason. This hormone plays an important role in the sleep–wake cycle, helping us yawn and drift off. It’s naturally produced by the body, but as we age, we make less of it. Even the use of electronic devices can throw off melatonin production.
Our Extended Release Melatonin is expertly formulated to support healthy sleep throughout the night.* You’ll also find melatonin, along with clinically backed ashwagandha, in SharpMind Sleep, crafted to help promote a calm mood and relaxed mind for a good night’s rest all night long.*
Consider Your Muscles, Bones & Joints
Before you kick up the physical activity this summer, make sure you have the support you need to keep your body feeling and functioning at its peak.
Magnesium Glycinate is a triple threat: Formulated for superior bioavailability, it can fuel your adventures by helping maintain healthy bones and muscles.* It can also help you find rest and relaxation to recover in your downtime.*
For joint health and comfort, turmeric is a standout thanks to its concentration of powerful curcuminoid compounds, including curcumin—our Vital Extracts turmeric formulas are guaranteed to contain 95% curcumin. Glucosamine, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid are also great choices for joint support; all three make up this powerful formula.*

Remember Your Immune System
You may only think about immune support during the colder months. But summer isn’t a time to drop the ball, especially if you’re getting on an airplane or headed to a crowded festival.
Keep vitamin C and the other immune-supporting vitamins, minerals, and herbs you rely on all winter in your summer routine so you won’t have to skip out on any of the season’s excitement.* And if you need additional support, consider one of our targeted ImmuFight formulas.
Soak Up the Season
With just a few tweaks and additions to your summer wellness routine, you’ll have the support you need to enjoy all the fun the season affords.
