Nutritional supplements can play an important role in maintaining your overall health and wellness. You might take supplements to boost your immune system, support your digestive system, heal your gut, detox the body or simply stay on top of your vitamin and nutrient levels.

At Superior Labs, we know supplements and we know our customers. Having been in the game for 10 years, we’ve noticed a few things about what our customers like and how this matches their unique personalities.

So if you’ve ever stopped to think what your favorite nutritional supplement might say about your personality type, we’ve put together a fun list below to help you figure it out.

5 Nutritional Supplement Personality Types

1) Digestive Enzymes: The Doers

Digestive enzymes break down the fats, proteins and carbohydrates from your food to help with better digestion and absorption of macro and micronutrients. These kinds of nutritional supplements are the doers that enable your digestive system to function properly and support healthy bowel movements.

You might take digestive enzymes if you are working on healing your gut from infections, toxins or other imbalances, or if you are particularly stressed and need an added digestive boost.

As a doer personality type, just like your digestive enzymes, you are focused on getting things done. You focus on breaking large problems down into smaller, more digestible ones and take it step by step to accomplish your goals with ease and grace. Doers tend to be very focused and motivated and they love checking tasks off their to-do lists! Sometimes they need to be reminded to have a little fun.

2) Binders: The Cleansers

Binders are all about grabbing onto the toxins like heavy metals, endotoxins from dying pathogens, mold, plastics, pesticides/glyphosate and other chemicals, and facilitating them out of the body to maintain proper homeostasis. Without binders it can be challenging to cleanse the body of toxins that might be negatively impacting our health.

If you’re a cleanser personality type, you strive to be pure of heart, mind, body, and soul. As such you make it your mission to eliminate all negative emotions, toxins, people, and situations so you can remain high vibing and abundant in all aspects of your life. Like supplemental binders, many people are drawn to the cleanser personality type for their healing and nurturing qualities but they can struggle with staying grounded and focusing on their own needs.

3) Minerals: The Vitalizers

Minerals are cofactors, meaning they act as the body’s spark plugs and are the catalysts that allow hundreds of other processes in the body to function. Our body maintains a delicate balance of minerals to keep us alive and healthy. For example, our macrominerals (or electrolytes) calcium, potassium, magnesium and sodium must all be in balance for proper energy levels, mood, digestion, and so much more.

A vitalizer personality type represents the spark of life — they infectiously spread their good energy to others. As a vitalizer, you’re the person everyone wants to be around. You’re the life of the party thanks to your magnetic energy. You also require balance in all areas of their life. When one area is out of sync, you might begin to feel overwhelmed.

4) B Vitamins: The Energizers

B vitamins like B6 and B12 provide an energy boost when you need it most and allow you to keep moving throughout your day. B vitamins promote a healthy metabolism and immune function and contribute to the body's ability to produce energy in the cells.

As an energizer personality type, you bring your life force to the world, filling yourself and others up with abundant energy. You’re there to keep others going when they want to give up and to be their biggest cheerleader. Energizers do have a hard time slowing down, which can potentially lead to burnout.

5) Gut Repair: The Rebuilders

Gut healing supplements like collagen, l-glutamine, colostrum, and zinc carnosine are all focused on healing and sealing the gut lining to repair what has been damaged. With the rise in environmental toxins, poor quality diets and increasing stress levels, our intestinal lining is under constant assault. Gut healing supplements provide soothing anti-inflammatory nutrients and help our body to repair and rebuild.

A rebuilder personality type is constantly rebuilding themselves when life wears them down. If you’re a rebuilder, you have an immense amount of grit and determination to pull yourself out of any situation and to always see the light at the end of the tunnel. You’re resilient and strong and move with fervor throughout your day. Although you stand tall, don’t forget sometimes you need a support system to help you through, too!
