The older we get, the more important it is to start taking care of our bodies. By older, I don’t mean 60-70 years old. I mean now, while we’re young enough to know exactly how to keep our bodies healthy. Over the past decade or so there have been new dietary restrictions that we would’ve never seen 100 years ago. Why is that you say? For some, it comes down to beliefs and cultural practices. Others simply because their body rejects particular foods. Whatever the case may be, our body needs daily nutrients to be able to function and without them, we can quickly start to notice significant changes.
This is why getting into a daily vitamin and supplement routine can be beneficial for your well-being and overall health. With so many vitamins on the market, it can be challenging to know exactly what your body is asking for. Your daily lifestyle, whether you identify as male and female and dietary preferences all impact the vitamins to take. VTMN Packs is making that some-what overwhelming experience a breeze with their daily vitamin pack subscription service. If you’re looking to make the change and better your health, here’s why VTMN Packs might be your new best friend.

VTMN Packs: How It Works
When you head over to the VTMN Packs website you’re immediately directed to a health assessment. The answers are 100% confidential, and are solely based around your health and fitness. This is assessment is meant for VTMN Packs to create a package that’s tailored to your unique body’s needs. Everyone is different, so its important to stay as accurate as possible with your answers.
The team at VTMN Packs is comprised of some of the best pharmacists, naturopaths, holistic nutritionists and registered dieticians to help achieve your health and wellness goals.
“VTMN Packs is the first of its kind in Canada. We help take the trouble and guesswork out of picking supplements by taking care of the curation process upfront, reducing the confusion and overwhelm that many customers feel when shopping for vitamins and supplements,” Laurie Cook, Founder & CEO said.
You can choose to build your own personalized vitamin pack, or take the health assessment here.
When I first heard about VTMN Packs, I was thrilled. Outside of a daily vitamin gummy and an occasional iron supplement, this was a whole new world to me. VTMN Pack is nice because you aren’t walking into the world of supplements blindly. They do a great job guiding you through the process.
When I started the assessment I inputed information like my gender, age, average physical activity per week and weekly eating habits. They were really thorough and caring with the questions. There’s a section to input your wants and needs. Mine are to have more energy, less stress and anxiety, better digestion, healthier skin, hair and nails and less bloating.
“All too often, we wait until we aren’t feeling our best to start taking action, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Taking proactive measures like focusing your diet on whole food nutrition and incorporating healthy habits, like taking vitamins, into your daily routine will help equip you to handle whatever may come your way. And it’s never too early to start! While the type of vitamins and amount you need will change over time, getting into the habit of taking daily vitamins is important whether you are zero or a hundred,” Laurie said.
Once I was done the assessment, I was given a list of all the vitamins and supplements recommended based on my answers. There was a breakdown to each and why it was beneficial for me to take them. Once again, super thorough! From here, the vitamins and supplements are broken down into a morning and evening pack to ensure you stay on track! Here a list of the vitamins and supplements in my personalized VTMN Pack.

When It Arrived: First Impressions
After finalizing my choices, my package came within 4 days. I was impressed by the simplicity of the packaging and how it embodied their “Vitamins Simplified” campaign. When I opened the box, I was flattered with a personalized note welcoming me on my journey. There was a pamphlet and paper outlining all the vitamins and supplements in my box.
The first thing that compelling me to VTMN Packs were their daily pouches. I love this concept. It made it easy to reach for early in the morning and at the end of a long day. It’s perfect for on-the-go and if you’re planning a short trip, you can place a few pouches in your bag and off you go. It’s really that simple!
The pull out system for the pouches works, but sometime you have to be careful with tearing them because you can accidentally rip the entire package and all your vitamins will spill on the floor!
“We really aim to make it simple, fun and convenient by taking the hassle out of taking vitamins! It’s a beautiful package that you will proudly display on your counter as a friendly reminder to keep up with your routine to feel your best today and support you in the long term,” Laurie said.
The Outcome: Final Thoughts
To be completely transparent, it took me awhile to get into a steady routine with these packs. But after some dedication and a few helpful reminders from my phone, I was able to get into a good routine. The 3 major changes I noticed were how strong my nails grew, how my skin was glowing, an increase in energy and far less bloating.
On one occasion I experienced a terrible vitamin stomach ache. That was because I took my morning pack with a very light breakfast. When taking a large amount of vitamins you need to make sure you’re eating a sufficient meal and if you don’t, you’ll end up like me. Overall, I was extremely impressed by my experience with VTMN Packs. Taking daily vitamins is something that should be taken seriously and why not leave it to the professional at VTMN Packs to guarantee you’re a living strong and healthy life!
