NOPE, supplements aren’t magic, but they can help you level up on your strength training or body composition goals. For sustained energy during workouts and a strong recovery, these are a few of my go-to choices. Daily vitamins and other supplements promote optimal health—these are the brands I use and trust.
Ritual Daily Prenatal
Ritual vitamins are made for women by women, and every ingredient is sourced ethically with robust quality standards. OB/GYNs advise that ALL women of childbearing age take a daily prenatal, even if they don’t intend to become pregnant. Learn more about the ingredients here.
EVL Nutrition ENGN Preworkout
Use at your own risk: this preworkout works. It has B Vitamins, caffeine, and niacin which some people tolerate better than others (jitters and tingles are possible). Nonetheless, I really enjoy this brand for sustained energy while weightlifting or endurance training.
Scivation XTEND BCAAs
A proprietary blend of hydrating electrolytes, glutamine, and branch chain amino acids (BCAAs). BCAAs support muscle growth, recovery, hydration, and reduce fatigue. Take a scoop in your water during workouts (or shortly after). Blue raspberry is my fave, tastes exactly like a Blow Pop.
Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega-3
Sourced from fatty fish, Omega 3 supports healthy glucose levels, lipid levels, brain health, joint health, and the body's ability to respond to stress. Nordic Naturals ethically sources wild-caught fish and processes the omega 3 in triglyceride molecular form (naturally found in fish and the most easily absorbed by our bodies).
Premier Protein Water
One of the easiest ways to tip the scales and hit your daily protein target is drinking water! Premier Protein’s orange mango water tastes great and offers 20g of whey-sourced protein. It doesn’t feel heavy in your stomach like a shake, which I love. For more on protein, click here.
Gym and Tonic Collagen
Collagen is a protein-rich supplement that supports strong nails and supple skin (plus healthy joints). I stir this unflavored collagen into my morning coffee and feel like a QUEEN. Use code FUELINGFUNCTION for a discount!
