I have been on the hunt for the perfect multivitamin for quite some time now. In the past I’ve written about Care/of, which I do like — but to be honest after a while it was just too many pills to be taking on a daily basis. My biggest concern is maintaining energy levels, I’m not a coffee drinker and I’m not that person who is snacking on fruits and veggies all day. So for me, vitamins are the answer. I was pleased to have stumbled across Movita Organics on Instagram a little while ago, where their bio reads “the all-natural multivitamin made to motivate you.” I took a look at the website and was immediately intrigued by the way that they formulate their vitamins.
There have been numerous debates regarding the importance of multivitamins, given that a lot of the nutrients we need are simply found in the different foods we eat. Therefore, what makes Movita stand out is that they utilize pure and organic whole foods to create each vitamin. Unlike a number of other vitamin brands that instead create a refined and synthetic version, which depletes the full nutritional value.
What’s crazy is I began taking the Movita One-a-Day Multivitamin ($37.95) and within days I felt a shift in my energy levels. First off, they don’t make you feel nauseous if taken on an empty stomach, which is a big plus for me. Having to wait until after I’ve eaten can cause me to forget, so they’re perfect for taking while running out the door for work or before the gym in the morning. I’m not a night-owl, nor am I a morning person — and what I noticed is that I was actually more energized in the evenings, even after a long day. In the morning, I actually got up without that usual grogginess I’ve always experienced — outside of me just being cranky in general about having to get up, ha!
I did a bit more digging on the brand and was pleased to see that Movita was created by Tonya Lewis Lee, health and wellness advocate, filmmaker and wife of Director Spike Lee. She hopes to make Movita a safe space for women offering products to increase their health and wellness. In the future they plan to launch prenatal and postnatal vitamins, a beauty specific vitamin to support healthy hair, skin and nails, as well as one for Vitamin D. I’ll definitely be on the look out!
