Wait. Don’t miss My Favorite Supplements {The Basics} for key products that close your nutritional gaps, boost your mood and energy, and support sound sleep.

Already have the basics covered? Let’s go beyond the basics and discover essential supplements to strengthen your digestive and immune health, power up your workouts, and help you glow from the inside out! Yes, please!

STRENGTHEN YOUR DIGESTIVE & IMMUNE HEALTH

I was in grade school when I learned the importance of a well-functioning gut. Severe intestinal cramping sent me to the E.R., where physicians relieved an obstruction through a painful procedure. Unfortunately, that was the first of many digestive issues that followed me through adolescence into adulthood. After my youngest was born, my gut went on a complete strike – like a busted garbage disposal – leaving me uncomfortable, totally frustrated, and yearning for digestive health. Easier said than done!

Your gut can be affected by stress, age, physical activity, even alcohol, and caffeine intake (guilty!) Learning how to Eat for Your Genetics, prioritizing rest (so you can digest), and supporting your body’s release through routine cleansing can help optimize your gut health. New to detox?

The easiest way to support digestive health and diversify your microbiome is taking a daily probiotic. Since around seventy percent of your immune system is in your digestive system, probiotics are also a great way to support your immune health. Research is only beginning to reveal the many benefits of microbial diversity. Probiotics not only help decrease digestive symptoms. They can also help reduce allergies, support weight loss (healthy metabolism) and brain function!† Read Digestive Health and Your Microbiome.

I rotate my probiotics for variety. My two favorites are Isagenix IsaBiome and Metagenics UltraFlora Spectrum. They’re both broad-spectrum (including lactobacillus, bifidobacterium, streptococcus, and saccharomyces species) and made by manufacturers that go above and beyond G.M.P. standards. (See P.S. below for How to Tell If a Supplement is High Quality)

Once you’ve got your probiotic on board, treat yourself to a scoop of immune support from beta-glucans and mushrooms with Immune Shake Booster. It mixes easily into your daily yogurt, shakes, or smoothie.†

POWER UP YOUR WORKOUTS

For me working out is Type B fun: fun after you’re done! Guess that’s why it’s called WORKing out, not PLAYing out. If you’re pushing yourself, you’re physically and emotionally outside your comfort zone. It’s uncomfortable. Period.

One way to make your training comfier is nutritionally refueling during workouts. Read Why I Drink This During Workouts for three powerful nutrients that’ll help you exercise with more ease and less fatigue – a winning combination. Adaptogens offset physical stress. BCAAs support muscle rebuilding. Plus, greens reduce acidity and improve blood flow.†

GLOW INSIDE OUT

It took me years to resolve my dry-flaky acne-prone skin, so I’m excited to shorten the learning curve for you! Remember, your skin is an outward reflection of your inside health. Read 3 Steps for Glowing Skin for the full download, but here’s a quick summary.

Start with learning how to Eat for Your Genetics. Dairy and sugar are two common culprits for skin irritations – including acne. Some genetics don’t care for dairy. Other genetics don’t do well with sugary high-glycemic foods. Too much sugar can also disrupt collagen – hello, wrinkles!

Next, add collagen elixir – so easy and tasty! Collagen holds your body together as mortar holds bricks together in a building. It’s the most abundant protein in your body, but after 25 years of age, you produce about 1% less collagen every year. So if you do the math, by age 50, you’ve lost around 25% of your collagen! That’s why collagen supplementation becomes more critical in maintaining vibrant health as you get older. Daily collagen supplementation brightened my skin tone, smoothed out its texture, and faded fine wrinkles (some wrinkles even disappeared!)†

Last (but far from least) for glowing skin, learn how to add routine cleansing into your healthy lifestyle with a FREE Detox 7-Day Reset. Detoxing through fasting kick-starts a process of cleaning up cellular debris and damaged cells to make way for newer, healthier cells – including skin cells. You can think of it kind of like an inside-out exfoliant for your skin. With routine cleansing, my skin softened and smoothed out. Plus, I also stopped shedding a bucket of dead skin cells when I changed clothes! Sorry for the gross visual. If you’re curious how I’ve beat routine cleansing into my lifestyle even when I’d rather go eat a bowl of ice cream, try my FREE Detox 7-Day Reset.

Take your supplement game to the next level: strengthen your digestive and immune health, power up your workouts, and glow from the inside out. Life’s too short to stay stuck eating a healthy diet that falls flat on meeting your nutritional needs. Instead, supplement your shortcomings with high-quality supplements. You deserve to feel empowered with the energy and confidence to live your soulFULL purpose.
