Ever wondered what the wellness-loving H&H team take in terms of supplements? Now you can!
We’ve said it before, the world of supplements can be confusing and daunting with so many to choose from and so many promising miracle results. At H&H, we’re not only very selective about the supplements we take ourselves but also go to great lengths to make sure what we recommend to our lovely readers is tried and tested and given the stamp of approval. One brand we can’t stop raving about is The Nue Co. It’s got to be up there with one of our favourite brands for so many reasons, but mainly because of the potency and high quality of ingredients and overall mission to redefine the relationship we have with our health (they are passionate about gut and skin health which we love). Below the team have shared their favourite supplement out of the range and how they incorporate it into their daily routine.
Director + Founder
Loves: Defence Drops
“I was lucky enough to have been one of the first to try Nue Co’s Defence Drops when they first launched and I have been hooked ever since. As a working mum of two, our household is constantly bombarded with cold and bug germs brought in from school, nursery and the office and these immune boosting drops really do work at keeping me healthy even when I feel at my most tired and depleted. A liquid supplement that I take directly under my tongue, it contains Echinacea (one of the best known herbal immune supports), and a concoction of health boosting adaptogens including Eleuthero, Astragalus and Shisandra Berry. This winning combination helps to balance internal stress levels and regulate immune response. Since COVID hit, my anxiety levels have increased and I know that is having an adverse effect on my immune system – not what you want in the middle of a pandemic, so I am thrilled that the Nue Co Defense Drops give me the boost I need when I find it hard to draw on my own reserves. It’s my little winter sidekick, my flu season handbag essential and I just couldn’t recommend it enough.”
Loves: Probiotic Protein
“One of my goals for January was to have a smoothie every morning to really help get my day off to a better start. I won’t lie, breakfast is not my favourite meal of the day, but I know it’s a great opportunity to get lots of goodness down you in one sitting. I’m adding lots of kale, spinach, frozen berries and superfood powders to my smoothie but one thing I have added recently is The Nue Co Probiotic Protein powder. I think protein is too often overlooked and in reality, it’s so important to make sure you manage your levels whether you’re on a plant-based diet or not. It’s essential for our bodies and is responsible for repairing and rebuilding cells and muscles. The Nue Co offer two diferent versions, one using whey and another using plant-based alternatives like pea and hemp. The amazing benefit of this protein is that it is fortified with a 20 million spore probiotic to keep your gut happy, another important thing for me. I regularly take probiotics as I find they really help my skin health (I have mild rosacea) so I’m loving the fact this protein powder packs a double punch in that regard!”
Loves: Prebiotic + Probiotic
“Improving my gut health has been an area I’ve been trying to get on top of in the last few years as, in my opinion, it’s the root cause of so many health issues. Suffering from ongoing acne and eczema, I have researched to death many alternative ways to solve my skin issues, while topical treatments I had no luck with. On a mission to improve my gut health, I discovered The Nue Co.’s Prebiotic + Probiotic and have never looked back. As well as improving my overall skin health dramatically, I found the product amazing for reducing bloating, something I didn’t even realise was affecting me until I noticed a huge difference in my digestion after the first few weeks of taking it. The Prebiotic + Probiotic has quickly become a staple in my wellness routine and is one of the rare supplements that you can physically feel the effects of in just a few weeks which I love!”

Loves: Vitamin D
“I think most people are probably aware that Vitamin D is an incredibly important supplement to take during the winter months due to lack of sun exposure, but even more so now that COVID-19 is a part of our lives. Many have suggested that boosting your levels of vitamin D can help reduce the severity of your symptoms of COVID-19 so I have been lapping up The Nue Co Vitamin D Spray to keep my levels topped up. This easily absorbable spray delivers 3000iu per dose and it is so incredibly vital for immunity and helping your body fight infection, particularly when it comes to respiratory infections. I am also pregnant and vitamin D supplementation was something my doctor recommended to help support my own health and my pregnancy too. I love this one from The Nu Co as it is so easy to take, no large pills to swallow and it offers over 2.5 x the absorption rate as opposed to the capsule alternative.”
