I post a lot of photos of nail polish, but I don’t post much about my nail care. While I don’t have a super strict routine, I do try to keep up on their care. They are kind of the “stars of the show” here anyway. While I do go through my filing, oiling, balms, etc to keep my nails looking the best I can, I started incorporating biotin and collagen supplements into my life. Truly Supplements offers a dark chocolate supplement of both, and I’m hooked.
Initially I was asked to review all 4 of the supplements that Truly Supplements offers: Biotin, Collagen, Melatonin and Probiotic. I decided to try Biotin because it’s truly the best fit for this blog. They sent Collagen along with it to try as well.
Make the “little things” you do each day that improve your well-being a delightful experience and something to look forward to.
Truly Supplements are all natural, free of GMOs, gluten free, organic, kosher, and made in the USA. They refer to their supplements as Trubites… but what is that? A trubite is an all-new chewable supplement “bite” that provides the perfect balance of nutrients and melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate for a moment of pure pleasure. Truly’s proprietary formula includes 70% dark chocolate and only the finest organic ingredients: cacao nibs, cane sugar and cocoa butter. Together, they merge to create a delectable balance of deep, dark chocolate flavor with just the right touch of pure sweetness.
Let’s look at each supplement! I started taking them in early December, and finished both bottles already, so I’ve had a full 2 months to try these out.
Truly Supplements – Biotin
Biotin helps you feel beautiful…inside and out. One of the B complex vitamins, it boosts natural energy; supports metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fat; and promotes healthy skin, nails and hair. Looking and feeling gorgeous has truly never tasted this delicious.
Dairy free. No additives. Kosher. Non GMO. Vegan. Gluten free. USDA organic.
I’ve been pretty lucky in the nail department. They grow fairly fast and when when I get a break I don’t freak out much because I know they’ll be back to normal within 2 weeks usually. I did notice they grew even faster taking Truly Biotin and felt even stronger. I also get a nice little boost of energy. Not like a jittery boost, but I feel more awake. Initially I didn’t notice any energy increase, but after a solid 2 weeks of using it I did feel more “awake” when I would usually be scrambling for coffee.
Truly Supplements – Collagen
Look and feel your best…at any age. Collagen plays a significant role in the health of your connective tissue, providing cohesion, strength and elasticity throughout the body. Collagen helps maintain normal skin appearance with aging, promotes skin’s natural elasticity, and supports natural youthful skin radiance. Unveiling truly radiant skin, strong hair and nails, and healthy joints has never tasted this divine.
Dairy free. No additives. Non GMO. Gluten free. USDA organic.
When I said I would be fine with just Biotin, it was suggested I try Collagen as well because it also helps with skin, hair and nails. I basically took the Biotin for a month (until I ran out) and then had Collagen for a month. Aside from my hair and nails growing better, I didn’t notice a huge difference with Collagen, but because of it’s claims, I would assume this is something that is more “in the long term”
I did have fewer breakouts and my skin didn’t feel so dry. I’m not sure if it was Truly Collagen or just weather changes though.
Truly Supplements Biotin & Collagen Dark Chocolate Supplements
Taste wise, I can really get used to this. I mean, I know I’m an adult and can have a full chocolate cake for breakfast if I really wanted to, but it’s nice to have to remember to take your morning chocolate! There is a hint of an aftertaste, but nothing that lingered or was unpleasant. It really tastes like you are just having a piece of dark chocolate.
I do plan on purchasing again, and I think I’m going to stick with just the Biotin since I prefer it for the energy boost and benefits to my nails. I also want to try the Melatonin one because lately during tax season I am having trouble winding down for bed.
