Everyone has that one wellness goal that could use a little more attention, but somehow doing so always seems to fall by the wayside—especially during the fall when back-to-busy season is humming along at full speed.

The solution? Working smarter not harder at giving your body the support it needs. Read: If you don't have time for a 10-step wellness routine, try to find one, easy-to-accomplish step that can target your specific wellness goal—like taking daily wellness gummies.

Yes, it can really be that simple with Herbaland wellness gummies, which are formulated to support healthy goals across the spectrum and are newly available at The Vitamin Shoppe. Not only are these gummies vegan and sugar-free, but the pouches they come in are also 100 percent compostable. Plus, with each pouch sold, a tree is planted, so you can check that "be more sustainable" goal off your wellness checklist.

Find your fall wellness goal below, and then read more about how Herbaland can lend a helping hand. Who knows, taking your gummies might just become your favorite item on your to-do list this season.

1. Give your overall well-being a boost

Short of having blood work done, it can be *really* hard to tell if you're getting the recommended amount of vitamins and minerals each day. That's why Brittany Michels, MS, RDN, LDN, a registered dietitian with The Vitamin Shoppe, recommends taking a daily multivitamin to fill in any nutritional gaps you may not even know you're missing.

"Multivitamins provide baseline antioxidant, vitamin, and mineral needs for proper body function," she says. "A multivitamin is the most comprehensive supplement option for those desiring nutrient coverage." The Herbaland women's multivitamin gummy contains vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, folate, zinc, and more, so you know your well-being really is covered from A to Z.

2. Support your immune system

Fall is in full swing, which means it's time to break out the tissues (just in case) and give your immune system all the extra TLC it can get, specifically with vitamins D3 and B12. Those two vitamins are notorious for being nutrients that people are commonly deficient in, Michels says, but they're essential for helping your body form red blood cells that are an important part of the immune system.

"Vitamin D and vitamin B12 are essential at all life stages," Michels says. "The Herbaland vitamin D3 and B12 gummies help to support adequate body levels required for red blood cell formation and a strong immune system."

3. Sleep better (and longer)

Sleep is one wellness goal that can be elusive—especially for the light sleeper or the doomscroller. If you need an extra push to help you fall (and stay) asleep, Michels says Herbaland's Sweet Dreams gummies have the ideal combo of ingredients to help you do just that.

"[They] provide melatonin, lemon balm, L-theanine and vitamin B6, which help users fall asleep faster, improve their sleep quality, and support the sleep-wake cycle," she says. Plus, the subtle passionfruit jasmine flavor puts the "sweet" in sweet dreams.

4. Support bone health

It's easy to forget about bone health since, well, you can't see your bones. But, low calcium intake can lead to the development of osteoporosis—which causes bones to become weak and brittle and can lead to easier breakage. That's why Michels strongly recommends gummy vitamins with calcium to groups who are more prone to calcium deficiencies, such as strict vegans, vegetarians who don't eat dairy, and those who are allergic or intolerant to dairy.

"Herbaland Calcium Plus gummies support overall health, wellness, and bone health by providing a conservative combination of calcium, vitamin D, vitamin K2, and phosphorus," Michels says.

5. Up your veggie intake

The American Heart Association recommends four to five servings of fruits and vegetables each day for optimal health. If you sometimes fall short of that goal, a greens supplement could help push you over the finish line.

"A greens supplement is packed with nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that are many times lacking in the average diet," Michels says. "Including a greens supplement is one of the easiest ways to supplement an array of nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and beneficial compounds."

6. Optimize your gut health

Fun fact: Apple cider vinegar is filled with good stuff for supporting your digestive system, such as probiotics (you know, the good gut bacteria) and acetic acid. But if starting your day with a shot of straight ACV isn't exactly your ideal morning, this apple cider vinegar-based gummy is the way to go.

"Apple cider vinegar contains the compound acetic acid, which has been found in research studies to improve satiety, blood sugar management, and digestion," Michels says.
