The new crop of supplements cover everything from the Mediterranean diet to apple cider vinegar to ingestible collagen

You've no doubt heard how incredible The Mediterranean diet is for your physique, overall health and skin thanks to the high levels of antioxidants contained in the meal plan or how chugging back apple cider vinegar is the golden ticket for gut health or that collagen is the secret to the fountain of youth... which feels like so much to think about/eat/drink/do just to maintain some semblance of a healthy body and semi-glowing skin.

So what if instead of trying to pack every health-giving item into every single day 365 days a year you could take a supplement every now and then to boost the things you missed that day/week/month?

Well, the great news is, now you can. Supplements have been around forever with dedicated supplement/vitamin stores on practically every corner - but the new crop of super supplements don't just offer one specific vitamin like your regular old vitamin C but an entire whack of good diet in one small pill. Or in the case of apple cider vinegar, which has the unfortunate side effect of stripping tooth enamel when it's sipped - a pill form so it passes easily through those pearly whites without incident straight to the gut ready to perform good health work.

Read on for the newest supplements on the block covering everything from an entire diet plan to beauty in a bottle:

The Mediterranean diet supplement from Olivino 
The Med diet is centred around olive oil, fresh fruit and veg, lean protein, whole grains and legumes and is the go-to for the gorgeous bikini-clad style set inevitably found sunning themselves by the sparkling Mediterranean Sea. Not only extremely good for you, it's also delicious (and includes wine!). Olivino's supplement when taken in the recommended two-capsule dose contains extracts from 300 grapes, five tomatoes and 30 olives ticking off all the basics from this healthy eating plan.

Vida Glow marine collagen supplements 
Everyone over the age of tween knows that collagen is the secret to youthful-looking skin, shiny hair and strong nails but unfortunately, it's quite a flighty little thing and our body stops producing it in our mid-to-late 20s. Collagen injections are always a possibility but for the needle-averse it's out the question. Which is where Aussie-based brand Vida Glow comes in with their revolutionary marine collagen supplements. The supplements are formulated to stimulate the body's natural supply of collagen which in turn increases elasticity, hydration and firms up the skin, helps repair brittle nails and puts the shine back into your locks. The six powder supplements, while technically not a pill, come in delish flavours like pineapple, peach and blueberry and make the perfect addition to your smoothie, iced tea, yoghurt or fruit juice. 
Original, blueberry, peach, mango, pineapple Vida Glow are all $54.95. Beauty blend Vida Glow (vego option) is $59.95.
