I’ve never reviewed supplements on the blog before simply because I’m really bad at remembering to take them regularly, so there was no way I could see, let alone describe their benefits. I used pumpkin oil, spirulina, and other supplements in the past, but it was only recently that I learned to be consistent with it.
Viridian Nutrition isn’t the first natural supplement company that I’ve tried. However, this cruelty-free company with over 180 products, including herbs, vitamins, oils, tinctures, and balms impresses me a lot. Most of Viridian Nutrition supplements are vegetarian or vegan, and a significant part is certified organic by Soil Association.
Viridian Ultimate 100% Organic Beauty Oil* (200ml for $15/£9.85)
A vegan, gluten-free blend of certified organic oils of golden flax seed oil, hemp seed oil, avocado oil, pumpkin seed oil, and evening primrose oil. This oil blend is balanced source of fatty acids, useful for both your health and beauty. It’s recommended taking two to three teaspoons of this Beauty Oil daily. It can also be used in smoothies, salads, and other food (just do not heat the oil or cook with it). I took one to two teaspoons daily for about four weeks. To be honest, I didn’t see any difference in my skin or hair/nails, but I noticed that my energy levels have increased significantly.
Viridian L-Theanine & Lemon Balm* (30 caps for $22.70/£14.95)
Comes in the form of gluten-free, vegetarian capsules that contain only two ingredients: L-theanine and lemon balm (melissa officinalis). This supplement is for reducing stress reactivity and inducing a more relaxed mental state as well as for easing anxiety symptoms. I’m really skeptical and careful when it comes to supplements that promise to make your anxiety go away, it’s just not that simple, so I delayed this review until I finish up the whole bottle to see if I can honestly say it’s worth the money. This supplement did not manage to reduce the worry, but I noticed that it helped my mind concentrate.
You can buy Viridian Nutrition supplements at the official website.
