Our pursuit of good health starts with you. Our team of experts are bringing only the latest, evidenced-based information right to your inbox.  You’ll find all the good stuff about nutrition, fitness and mindfulness practices that support your whole body health in the V+M wellness journal. We break down the science into bit size pieces, so that you can take advantage of the evidence that matters most to you. We avoid flashy headlines and focus only on the real data that makes a difference to you.

We write a lot about women’s health, because we’re women, we’re moms and we’re experiencing the same things that you are. We just happen to have the training to bring you answers. Like most women, we want to feel good, have the energy to live our best lives and make sure that everyone we care about is taken care of. But, we also know that putting on your oxygen mask before you put it on for others is the most important first step. Because if you aren’t on the top of your game, then you can’t take care of your crew. So let’s dive into your health together, so that your whole family can be well.

If you want to learn more about a topic, just ask. We are always writing about health in our wellness journal and are more than happy to serve up the answers to your questions. Drop us a line at hello@vitaminandme.com and follow on socials @vitaminandme
