What supplements are right for you?

Over the years nutritional supplementation has become a staple for people looking to build muscle or burn fat.

The marketing dollars spent to influence you to have those thoughts and feelings most likely reach the BILLIONS!

But the truth is you DON’T NEED supplements. <<=== you read that right

Your body doesn’t need dietary supplements if you are eating perfectly, have amazing recovery between workouts, fall asleep instantly and have a lightning fast metabolism….

…for the rest of us mere mortals though, supplements can greatly help you!

What I want to emphasize though is that the word “supplement” means:

Dietary supplements are intended to be IN ADDITION to a healthy diet and exercise program, not to replace them.

There is no single magic potion, lotion, pill or patch that is going to completely change your health. But, the right combination of vitamins and supplements along with healthier lifestyle habits can help you feel really freakin great!!

Here is a look at the supplements Michelle and I use to look and feel our best. I’ve also attached the manufacturers description to each product.

Natural Calm

The Anti-Stress Drink… Natural Calm is the solution to both restoring a healthy magnesium level and balancing your calcium intake—the result of which is natural stress relief. Natural Calm has magnesium supplement. It features a proprietary formula that provides a highly absorbable, water-soluble magnesium in ionic form (having molecular charge that allows the element to easily bond with water), so it is ready to go to work right away.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient well known for its vital role in the immune system. It is a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body’s structures from oxidative damage generated during normal metabolism. Vitamin C is also necessary for the production of collagen and is therefore important for skin, bone, and joint health. This product includes Bioflavonoids, which work synergistically to support Vitamin C utilization.

B-Complex 100mg

B-100 Caps provide a full complement of B-Vitamins plus Choline and Inositol. These vitamins work to support energy production, maintain healthy homocysteine metabolism, and promote the health of the nervous system. B-Vitamins are water soluble, and with the exception of B-12, have limited storage in the body and thus require daily replenishment. While B-12 is stored in the liver, dietary sources are of animal origin only (meat and dairy) and supplementation with B-12 may be especially important for vegetarians.


Getting proactive about digestive health has never been easier. Benefiber Original Prebiotic Fiber is a 100% natural, clear & taste-free daily fiber supplement. When used three times daily, it helps nourish the growth of good bacteria that exist naturally in your gut. And because it’s completely dissolvable, you can get creative when it comes to baking your favorite fiber-rich recipes. Pasta? Chili? Smoothies? Try Benefiber with them all. Simply add the non-thickening, gluten-free and sugar-free powder to any meal or non-carbonated beverage without changing the taste or consistency. It’s as simple as that!

Cuts II

Prolab Cuts II Gold Lipotropic Formula is a comprehensive formula designed to help support energy metabolism and fat utilization and help reduce water retention. Prolab Cuts II Gold Lipotropic Formula is specially formulated to complement your intense training program by providing key nutrients like L-Carnitine. The body uses carnitine to drive fat into the cells fat-burning factories. This formula also provides chromium and other key nutrients that play a role in fat metabolism.


Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin B-6 combine to create the Dietary Supplement ZMA® is a synergistic combination of Zinc and Magnesium designed to maximize absorption and promote recovery from exercise. Zinc plays a central role in the regulation of cellular growth and tissue repair, as well as the maintenance of a healthy immune system. Magnesium is essential for the maintenance of electrolyte balance, energy production and normal neuromuscular function. Because physical activity can increase the need for these two minerals, ZMA® is the ideal supplement to aid in their replenishment.
