Persona Nutrition Review

 *This blog post was created in collaboration with Moms Meet and Persona. All opinions are 100% my own and as always I appreciate your support of Prim and Propah.

I've been teaming up with MomsMeet for quite awhile now and they're consitently introducing me to new brands that are in my realm of interest and this blog post is no different. I have always wanted to try a vitamin regimine that is catered to my needs and with Persona, I was able to try just that!  Persona is a personalized, high-quality supplement subscription service that delivers your packs to your doorstep every 28 days.

So first of all, you take an assessment so you can see what the right suppliments are for you and your needs! You answer a variety of questions about your general health, your concerns, medications you may be taking, what your goals are and other issues you may have had in the past. I felt that they were taking a lot into consideration when creating my "plan" and so I felt good about the regimine that they sent over to meet my needs. The daily vitamins are split into a cute box that makes it easy to pull out one at a time, unless you have kids who pull them all out at once, in which case, good luck getting them back in the way from which they came! But in all seriousness, the kit is really neat.

Here's what Persona put together for me:

Cordyceps • Supports Energy Production • Promotes Liver Health • May Enhance Libido Cordyceps contains numerous constituents responsible for its health-promotion actions including polysaccharides, cordycepin, and cordypyridones. 

DHA w/ Vitamin D • Promotes Brain Function • Supports Healthy Inflammatory Response & Eye Health Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is an important brain boosting Omega-3 fatty acid. Since the body can’t produce it, getting enough in the diet or by supplementation is crucial. When the brain receives adequate amounts of DHA, it is able to produce hormones as needed which makes cell communication easier. 

Daily Probiotic • Supports Healthy Digestion • Replenishes Gut Flora • Supports Immune System Our Daily Probiotic contains Lactobacillus rhamnosus, one of the most popular probiotic strains to help restore good bacteria in the gut. By encouraging a balanced biohm, our Daily Probiotic can support gastro-intestinal complications, diarrhea, and the immune system. 

Foundational Multivitamin Heart Health • Optimal form of Folate • Fills nutrient gaps, supports overall health Food preferences, allergies, prescription medications, digestion issues, and age can impact your nutritional status. Our vegan, non-GMO multivitamin is highly bioavailable to help you fill in diet gaps and achieve a healthy nutrition profile while supporting your immune system. 

Green Tea Extract• Supports Healthy Energy • Fights Oxidative Stress • Supports Brain Function Green tea extract has been used for centuries to provide a variety of health benefits including energy productin, athletic performance support, healthy weight, and overall immunity.

Spirulina • Immune Support • Super Powerful Antioxidant • Anti-Inflammatory Spirulina is an algae that can help fill nutritional gaps from diets lacking fruits and vegetables. 

Vitamin D-3 1000 • Bone Support • Cell Growth Support • Neuromuscular and Immune Function Support Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin that can be produced when the skin is exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet rays. For this reason, geographical location, use of sunscreen, and lack of outdoor activities impact vitamin D status in the body and may lead to a deficiency. 

I will say that in taking these supplements, some of them were larger than I am used to taking so it was a bit of a struggle at first to get them all down each morning but I challenged myself to drink more water and taking my Persona supplements certainly helped with that goal! Another thing I might mention, and this is not a very attractive thing to admit, but one of these supplements was 100% giving me gas and the thing is, it's hard to narrow down which one it might be. The great thing about Persona is that they do have nutritionists that you can email, call or chat with so if I really did want to get to the bottom of it, I could have a talk with a member of their team. So just something to consider when you are taking a new vitamin or supplement, that you may have some side effects like gas, doh! So make sure to pay attention to your body and what is happening with it!

So would I recomment Persona? Yes! Actually, even though I got this first supply for free, I am on my way to get another month filled (that I'm paying for!)... so that should give you an idea of what I thought! I have been really trying to take care of my body. I am nursing a back injury in PT. I am having regular appointments at the chiropractor and I am taking my nurtition more seriously.

You can find Persona online, on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter... oh and have $25 on me to place your first order, shop here!
