What is Your Essentials?

When shopping for vitamins and supplements, especially as a beginner, the amount of information and products available can seem overwhelming. You may not know what to look for or even where to start. That’s where we come in. Your Essentials at The Vitamin Shoppe® is your resource to find the supplements and vitamins you need to help specific areas of need or focus. We simplified the shopping process by establishing the following need-based categories with specially selected products to support related goals:

  • Foundational Health
  • Sleep and Mood
  • Workout 101
  • Joint Support
  • Heart Health
  • Stress Management
  • Digestive Health
  • Energy and Vitality
  • Brain and Memory
  • Immune Support

Finding Your Focus

Instead of asking what vitamins or supplements you need, decide which wellness areas to focus on by shifting your thought process. Try asking yourself more wellbeing- and result-oriented questions: Which need states have to be addressed for you to thrive and live better? What are your overall health goals?
Consider the three following areas of wellness to narrow down your focus into actionable goals and identify your need states:

Physical Fitness and Performance

If you’re interested in improving your fitness and physical performance at the gym, in athletics, or other physical activities, explore our Workout 101 category for the best selection of products to get started. Then, check out our Energy and Vitality section to give your body and performance a boost.

Internal Health

Our bodies are incredibly complex beings made up of many systems that interact with each other to keep us alive and well. To address overall wellbeing and nail down your basic needs, start with our Foundational Health category. Follow up by identifying more specific areas of need, like Immune Support, Digestive Health, and Heart Health.

Emotional and Mental Wellbeing

Just like the wellness of the physical body, emotional and mental wellbeing are crucial to overall health and feeling good. Find support for your current struggles in our Sleep and Mood, Stress Management, and Brain and Memory collections.

Keep in mind that many need states can play a role in more than one wellness area. Joint Support, for example, can help improve your overall internal health as well as physical fitness and support. In these cases, finding the right solutions to help one need may actually provide additional benefits.
