Get To Know Ideal Protein Vitamins and Supplements

We’ve all walked through grocery store aisles packed with vitamins that cover the entire alphabet and more. Instead of being overwhelmed by options and wondering how certain vitamins and supplements affect you, Ideal Protein outlines the what, when, and why for you while you’re on your weight loss journey.

Vitamins and supplements substitute for minerals and vitamins you aren’t consuming while on an Ideal Protein diet. Especially during Phase 1 of Ideal Protein to balance diet, nutrition, and energy, taking your vitamins and supplements is very important. 

Each recommended and required vitamin/supplement is meant to be taken at a certain time and address specific needs. Missing vitamins and supplements while on the Ideal Protein diet can affect your experience in different ways. 

To optimize results, take time to understand the benefits of vitamins and supplements. Log daily and make sure you’re having active conversations with your Ideal Protein coach.
