A while back I was asked to try out Sundose. Sundose provide bespoke supplements which take into account your diet and lifestyle. Getting nutrition right means you are likely to have better energy levels and also your hair, nails and skin condition should improve. It can be difficult with today’s busy schedules to get all the nutrients you need and if you can’t you probably normally reach for an off the shelf multivitamin which may provide too much of some things, less of others than you need and won’t necessarily cover everything you need. This is where Sundose comes in as their supplements are>tailored to your individual needs and their packs provide vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, probiotics and adaptogens.
I started off by answering 62 questions prepared by Sundose’s doctors and dietitians will allow them to get to know your lifestyle better and to estimate the demand for basic ingredients. The questions were easy to follow. The only one that caused me a bit of a problem was the question about avocados. Did I ever eat them? Well I answered yes and then came across the question of whether I had them once a week, or twice, or more often. I didn’t think my more sporadic consumption was sufficient for once a week and I found it difficult to find a way to go back to change the original answer. I think you can just let the dieticians know in a note, but I opted to start the survey again. Interestingly the question so stuck in my mind that I have started eating avocados a lot more often, and I now would answer the question very differently as eating more avocados has become a habit. One of the good things about Sundose is you can tell them when things change and they will adapt your supplements to suit.
After you finish the questionnaire you will receive your supplements a few days later in the post. You get a month’s worth in the box and you need to keep them in the fridge. Each day you take out a sachet and it has two compartments. One contains some capsules. I’m not sure what all the capsules contained, but I think one was an Omega 3 oil and another was a probiotic. In the other compartment you have a white powder that you dissolve in water and this contains the bespoke ingredients put together in the right proportions for you. It’s easy enough to stir up this in water and drink it. I would say that I found I needed quite a lot of water and that if I didn’t drink it quite fast, I needed to restir or add some more water as some of the particles settled at the bottom. This wasn’t a big deal for me and in fact I found that I drank more water whilst I was taking these supplements which is a good thing.
Over all I was very happy taking the supplements. It was easy to do and I felt better for taking them. I felt like I had more energy; I felt healthier and I didn’t get sick even though I was taking them through January which is pretty much peak cold season. Sundose is really easy to use and I love that they provide a bespoke solution to taking supplements.
