Black-Owned Supplement Brands To Add To Your Wellness Routine

Black-owned wellness supplements have entered the chat.

Wellness

Ah, I miss the good old days when I would just pop in a Flintstones vitamin and call it a day. Those times are now long behind me, and my body has gone through many changes since my Flinstone days. I'm learning how important it is to take extra steps to keep my health in check. Drinking water, working out, and feeding my body only good things have helped me keep going. Something else offering an assist to my overall health are supplements.


Wellness supplements can make our bodies feel incredible, but finding a supplement that is right for our needs can be quite challenging. For generations, people of color have had a harder time finding proper medical care, health advice, and trusted supplements that speak to our bodies. I think it's fair to say it is the area where we feel the least heard on top of everything else.

Luckily for us, Black-owned wellness businesses are on the rise and are going the extra mile to make sure we're taken care of. Here is your list of black-owned wellness supplements.

MOVITA Organics

MOVITA Organics is a popular Black-owned vegan supplement created by Tonya Lewis Lee. Her mission is to support women of color and their powerful choices to amplify their life. MOVITA Organics is a multi-purpose vitamin brand made with organic fruits, vegetables, herbs, and minerals. The vitamin is also gluten-free, allergen-free for shellfish and nuts and free of GMOs.

The vitamin-based brand offers a few different vitamins for any woman's needs. A few of the options are prenatal vitamins, which support the immune system and baby's development; beauty supplements support the healthy growth of hair, skin, and nails; and the multivitamin supports breast and reproductive health, heart health, immunity, and stress relief. The best part? The vitamins can be taken on an empty stomach. Perfect for taking your vitamin at the start of your day with no repercussions.

My Happy Flo

For some women, that time of the month is associated with negative feelings. Their cycles and cramps are painful, diagnoses like PCOS and fibroids fill the body with trauma, and something that should symbolize new life is affiliated with the inability to conceive. Coming in clutch and making #periodgoals a thing is My Happy Flo.

My Happy Flo is an up-and-coming supplement brand focused on empowering women to have a happy period, period. The brainchild of xoNecole founder Necole Kane, My Happy Flo is an all-natural plant-based supplement that helps to holistically balance your reproductive health system. The end result is a happier, drama-free period and elevating your menstrual wellness.

Sacred Vibes Apothecary

Sacred Vibes Apothecary was founded by Black herbalist Karen Rose. Her shop is based in Brooklyn, NY, and is a learning community center and a herbalist boutique. Karen makes an abundance of different cleansers for the body but is praised for her all-natural tonics. Her best seller being the Anti-Inflammatory Tonic.

The herbal tonic is made with devil's claw, turmeric, ginger and dandelion roots, garlic, and cayenne pepper. The product promotes weight loss, stops yeast and fungus growth, prevents infection, and balances blood sugar. Seriously, is there anything this tonic can't do? Not to mention it also prevents and removes inflammation. Simply include this in your water twice a day for maximum results. If you're looking for a rebirth, then this product is for you.

The Honey Pot

As women, that time of the month can be very hard on us. Our bodies are going through a beautiful process that can sometimes throw us and our pH out of whack. Now, there is a supplement to help get back in alignment with our pH. Bea Dixon founded the Honey Pot. Her now plant-derived feminine brand manifested through her struggles with bacterial vaginosis. She developed a series of feminine products as well as a vaginal supplement to help us all.

Her supplement Boric Acid & Herb Suppositories is a vaginal insert. The suppositories are made to help with pH balance but can support ongoing symptoms of bacterial vaginosis. The supplement is all-natural made with boric acid and tea tree oil for balance, plus coconut butter for an added boost of hydration and moisture. The supplement comes with an insert, similar to a tampon. It is advised to take the supplement for seven days twice a day.

Peak and Valley

Stress in our life can have hard effects on the body. Lack of sleep, weight loss, mood swings, the rise of blood pressure, and heart disease can all stem from stress on the body. Having a supplement to keep your stress levels low can save you a lifetime of health challenges. Good thing we have Nadine Joseph, the founder of Peak and Valley--an herbal company backed by science.

Peak and Valley promotes medicinal mushrooms and herbal supplements for holistic wellness. Nadine, a scientist, became passionate about providing products to help us deal with everyday stressful situations. Her powdered supplement, Balance My Stress Blend--is a chocolate blend of herbs and mushrooms to support calm and wellbeing without the need for prescriptions. The powerful ingredients are clinically proven to balance cortisol levels, support and enhance immunity, increase energy, and decrease stress. You may apply one tablespoon of the supplement to any tea, coffee, or milk.

VeganSmart

People of color, we have to do better about our eating habits. Now don't get me wrong, I love a saucy rack of ribs, but if I had it every day, I'd be dead. People of color are at a higher risk of having diabetes and other diet-related illnesses. In fact, Kareem Cook and Claude Tellis, owners of VeganSmart, saw this within their own families. The two college friends developed a protein powder and recipes to support nutritional health.

The VeganSmart All-In-One Nutritional Shake is a plant-based vegan blend of prebiotics, omega-3, digestive enzymes, and vitamins and minerals. Each ingredient contributes to the body's overall health, supporting cell function, brain and heart health, and the digestive system to absorb nutrients. You may also find a series of healthy recipes on their website to stay in alignment with your fitness goals.

Dr. Sebi's Cell Food

Giving our bodies a good cleanse can help us see the world just that much clearer, and Dr. Sebi's is helping us do just that. His cell food is proven to bring immense healing from the inside out. Most of his products are from botanical extracts and herbs, which help cleanse the body of toxins and every cell to promote profound self-healing and physical rejuvenation.

A few of his products include powders, tonics, and vitamins, but my favorite is Banju. This product is my personal favorite because it promotes brain health and reduces anxiety. The tonic is rich in antioxidants reducing neurological inflammation, elderberry, which protects and nourishes the brain, blue vervain delivers emotional and nervous restoration, and more. These ingredients make for the perfect anxiety-reducing potion.
