Supplements That Fit You

Being in the health & fitness industry, I get a lot of questions about supplements. So I am sharing some recommendations I use with my clients based on Precision Nutrition’s fitness experts and health professionals.

I am not affiliated with any of these supplements but want to provide you this resource of the brands that have proven safe and successful through research and personal experiences.

Protein supplements

We use the products below with our clients and don't hesitate to say that they come from reputable companies and taste great. If you're going to use a protein supplement, 40g/day is a good amount while 80g/day should represent an upper limit of supplemental protein intake. Of course, protein supplements should never be used as one's exclusive protein source.

All Natural WheySmooth by dotFIT This whey protein formula is produced through an ion-exchanged, ultra filtration process that yields the highest level of protein and amino acids while preserving all the naturally occurring, immune enhancing and muscle nourishing bioactives.

Best Plant Protein by dotFIT This is an excellent-tasting plant-based protein. Unlike many other plant protein powders that are bitter, grainy or chalky each serving of this proprietary blend provides 21 grams of tasty protein that's easy to digest.

Whey Protein Isolate by Thorne Research Another excellent whey protein choice that's sourced from cows not treated with hormones and is cold-filtered to reduce the risk of denaturing its proteins. Contains no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners and comes in chocolate or vanilla.

VegaLite by Thorne Research Another excellent plant-based protein source; it's a great-tasting, dairy-free, vegan protein using a blend of rice and pea proteins. The result is a protein powder with an amino acid combination that closely resembles whey.

Low Carb by BioTRUST

Proteins+ by Genuine Health

Vegan proteins+ by Genuine Health Another excellent protein blend from Genuine Health. Contains 5 veggie protein sources, 8 essential amino acids, vitamins & minerals, and no animal products whatsoever.

Greens supplements

While greens can't replace a diet sufficient in vegetables, the blend of antioxidants, enzymes, phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals in these products can be extremely helpful. Adding a serving of greens to every protein shake you drink is a good strategy. Further, when on the road, greens can really come in handy.

greens+ by Genuine Health The best, most research-proven greens product on the market today.
