Naturelo Premium Supplements - From Nature With Love

 Product review

I firmly believe that there is no substitute for a balanced and healthy diet. But having said that, in today’s fast-paced demanding world, a busy lifestyle and/or a limited food budget doesn’t allow everyone to enjoy nutrient-dense foods on an every meal basis. 

Take my family for example - as full-time working professionals and parents of two young children, me and my husband make it a priority to cook fresh home-cooked meals, 85-90% of the time for the family. But there are sometimes 2-3 meals per week that translates into us ordering take-out, going out to dinner or else the lack of time or energy results in us rustling up quick-fix meals that sometimes relies on processed ingredients. Also, being a couple of complete foodies, we do not restrict ourselves when it comes to the food we love, so indulgent meals, deep-fried food and desserts are made in our household without any guilt! Eating balanced and healthy doesn’t figure in the scheme of things during such instances 😆

Even though we do embrace a variety of foods and cuisines, incorporate whole grains, low-fat dairy products, fresh vegetables and fruits in our meals and make it a point to include healthy dishes in our weekly menu, it always seems like we could do just a little bit better. I do check nutritional labels before buying ingredients to minimize the nasties but honestly speaking, everything I buy from the grocery store is not certified organic. Our children are small eaters by nature and although I feel like they get enough carbs, enjoy several servings of fresh fruit per day and love dairy, they do not get enough protein and they have to be coaxed (make that begged) to up their daily intake of vegetables and greens.  

To top it, my family as a whole, is pretty active and we get plenty of exercise so our energy demands increase as a consequence of that. So, in our case, there is a high chance that we do not get the recommended amount of all the essential nutrients from food alone. As a person ages, the body’s ability to absorbs nutrients decreases so I am well aware of how mine and my husband’s food habits needs to evolve as we grow older. Not to mention, pesticides and herbicides used to farm our food, chemicals found in our water supply, food processing and external environmental issues like pollution drastically increase our need for extra vitamins and minerals.  

Nutritional supplements can be useful for filling in gaps in an individual’s diet. 

When I was approached by NATURELO to review their products, I took the time to check out their philosophy, products and overwhelmingly positive customer reviews and thought – why not? 

The only time I had ever taken supplements in my life before this was while I was trying to conceive and during the entire length of my pregnancy and breastfeeding duration. 

I started thinking more about it and in addition to our (sometimes) bad dietary choices, I am aware that I have (and have always had) a low haemoglobin count so an iron and folate-rich diet could be beneficial for me. Unlike me & the kids, my husband prefers to stay indoors most of the time (owing to Singapore’s hot and humid weather!) so he could do with more Vitamin D. 

NATURELO Premium Supplements Inc is a small privately-funded company established in 2013. The company believes that the best vitamins and minerals come from nature and not a lab. They take what nature has to offer – organically-grown fruits and vegetables and package them into powerful high quality supplements that work in sync with the human body. As of today, they offer a line of 40+ natural vitamin products. 

NATURELO products do not contain genetically-modified plants. All the nutrients in their supplements are said to be derived solely from nature. There are no artificial colors, stabilizers or preservatives. The supplements are vegan-friendly which is good news for vegetarians and vegans. Also, the supplements are free of common allergens including soy, gluten, dairy, corn and peanuts.  

The supplements are made in the United States in an FDA-approved facility. The company meets and exceeds the cGMP standards and each ingredient is tested for purity and potency. 

I was sent three of their products - One Daily Multivitamin for Men, One Daily Multivitamin for Women and Whole Food Vitamin Gummies for Kids. This review is coming to you after two months of consuming the supplements. 

One Daily Multivitamin for Men

This supplement contains, 
  • Natural Vitamins A, B Complex, C, D3, E, K2 
  • Minerals - Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Chromium 
  • Antioxidants from Organic Fruit and Vegetable Extracts

This multivitamin is said to boost energy and metabolism, enhance heart, brain & eye health, aid digestion, boost the immune system, reduce inflammation and increase wellness. 

This supplement contains, 
Contains Natural Vitamins A, B Complex, C, D3, E, K2 
Minerals - Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium 
Antioxidants from Organic Fruit and Vegetable Extracts

This multivitamin is said to boost energy and metabolism, enhance heart, brain & eye health, aid digestion, boost the immune system, support bone health and increase wellness. 

I couldn't tell if I had more energy (I have a fair bit of energy anyway!) but I did notice that I was sleeping better and in general, felt quite good. 

This supplement contains, 
Essential vitamins (including A, B6, B12, biotin, C, D, and E) and minerals (such as calcium, iodine, and zinc) in their most bioavailable forms.  

My kids loved the taste of these chewable gummies and said they taste like raspberries. 

Most gummy vitamin brands are packed with artificial sweeteners such as sucrose which is associated with weight gain, diabetes, and attention deficit disorder. These gummies obtain their sweetness from Organic Stevia Leaf extract, which is natural and has no side effects.

Plus, they’re made without iron, so you don’t have to worry about constipation.

I would definitely consider giving my kids these gummies on a daily basis. 

So, if you are looking for a good multivitamin, you can consider NATURELO to fulfill any lacking nutritional requirements. The products are made from natural ingredients, are GMO-free, allergen-free, vegan-friendly, comes in attractive packaging and can be considered value for money. 

But always consult your healthcare provider before you start taking supplements because for certain high-risk groups, they may be more detrimental than beneficial. 

Knowledge is power folks!
