But with personal care remaining a big 2020 trend, your global health and wellness leader – NBCo. – has a number of must-have vitamins and nutritional product recommendations for everyone on your shopping list this year.

As an added bonus, we’ve also snuck in a couple of ways shoppers can treat themselves (and manage holiday stress) in the process. Click here to see the full guide and continue reading to learn more about favorite items from Meghan Sowa, one of our health and wellness experts.
“As a working Mom always on the move, I have a passion for health and wellness both personally and professionally. Check out some of my go-to products below!”
I, like many, have immune health top of mind right now, so that’s why I turn to our Ester-C® Vitamin C. Vitamin C is known for its importance in supporting healthy immune function and this product is clinically shown to last longer than regular Vitamin C, and stays in your immune system for 24 hours*+. That’s a win, win for me.
Sleep & Stress
Adding the holiday shuffle to everyday life can sometimes be stressful. And if you’re like me, stress impacts your sleeping pattern. To address sleep and stress simultaneously, I always keep this staple in my house: Nature’s Bounty® Sleep3 + Stress. The innovative time-release technology helps you relax and get long-lasting sleep, while Ashwagandha helps support a healthy response to occasional stress and anxiety.
Beauty from Within
A self-proclaimed beauty enthusiast, I am obsessed with the new Nature’s Bounty® Collagen Beauty Blends. This line of powders (available in vanilla or unflavored) dissolves in cold or hot liquid and helps improve skin elasticity and hydration, while helping to decrease skin roughness.* It’s super easy to add to your daily routine too – all you have to do is add 2 scoops of powder to your morning coffee, favorite oatmeal or yogurt, or any beverage.
My workouts and active lifestyle have definitely changed given the global pandemic, but NBCo. has some recent innovations in the Sports & Active Nutrition category that I’m living for. Cue the new Body Fortress® High Protein Shakes– with 40 grams of protein in 11 fluid ounces, these are the perfect addition to help fuel me up. I’m also always on the lookout for delicious protein bars that I can stash in my bag or at-home desk. MET-Rx® Big 100 Fruity Cereal bar and Pure Protein® Cookies & Cream bar are two new options that are great for anyone who wants a convenient protein source.
Bone & Joint
My family is all about those brisk morning walks or hikes, so taking care of my bones and joints is just as important as anything else. Did you know Osteo Bi-Flex® Triple Strength includes Vitamin D to help support bone density and a healthy immune system, and glucosamine for joint support?* Definitely don’t want to miss out on this one!
My son is 7 years-old and getting him to eat his veggies can be a struggle sometimes. To help fill those nutrient gaps, I give him the Sundown® Kids Multivitamin Toy Story 4 Gummies. Parents, caregivers and character-obsessed kids will equally love this stocking stuffer because it’s made with naturally sourced colors and flavors, contains key nutrients like A, C, D, E and select B vitamins, and the line is all clean, all the time (aka dairy free, gluten free, peanut free, artificial flavor free). Plus, they come in your little ones’ favorite Disney Pixar characters.
