Health Splurge: HUM Nutrition
Vitamins and Supplements, prices vary
Fill out a three-minute questionnaire on behalf of your mom and Hum will give her a personalized regimen put together by a Registered Dietitian, along with a rundown of what exactly she is doing right (“While I recommend most people take a multi vitamin and a fish oil, I don’t see a need for that in your case as your diet is already very rich in nutrients”) and what she should watch out for (“Watch out for that daily calcium as it is critical for bone health - if you don't tolerate lactose, green leafy vegetables like Kale and Broccoli also contain Calcium”). Then order the supplements and opt to have them automatically delivered every month.
