And if you’re like us – you might look towards your astrological forecast for some goal setting inspiration. As both wellness experts and astrology lovers – we had to wonder what zodiac signs could tell us about our health goals and vitamin needs. So, we did some research and had some fun (mostly fun) to bring you supplements that might pair well with your zodiac sign.
*Note: Though you may get inspired by the supplement that we’ve matched to your zodiac sign, we don’t recommend looking to the stars for health advice. You can check out our evidence-based assessment to find a supplement program that’s right for your unique needs. As always- supplements aren’t intended to cure or treat any disease. Check in with your healthcare practitioner before starting a supplement routine.
