We’ve always heard of people taking vitamins and supplements that they swear by and have changed their lives. But it’s often very confusing to figure out which supplements you should take, if any at all! And then when we see those classic Sugar Bear Hair ads on Instagram, it makes you question whether you should hop on the bandwagon or not – because they just look so good! Well, we gave up so we turned to you help us figure out which supplements actually work – here’s what you had to say.
So many of you swear by this supplement! Biotin is a vitamin B that helps convert certain nutrients into energy. It also helps improve the health of your hair, skin and nails and is an all around game-changer!

Vitamins C, D, E
All vitamins are essential to your health but these three are super important. Vitamin C is a great antioxidant that can prevent a variety of diseases and improves your immune system. Vitamin D plays a huge role in your bone and teeth health. Vitamin E has great anti-aging benefits and is found in a lot of skincare products!

Cod Liver Oil
Although it sounds a bit fishy (we love our puns!), cod liver oil has so many benefits that it should always be in your diet – either naturally or through supplements. It’s full of vitamins A & D, it improves bone health and eye health and is known to improve symptoms of anxiety and depression!
