How do these new Fit Mother supplements work with the recommended FMP Supplement List? Do I need to swap things? Which products cover my bases?

Question:
"Hey FMP Team, I'm really excited to see these awesome new supplements you've made for us ladies. I'm wondering though... how do these new supplements fit into the recommended FMP supplement list that I've been using so far? Which products should I take/swap? Can you please give me some insight?"

Answer:
Awesome question, my friend. We're really happy to create these new supplements for you too. The good news is that the CORE FMP Supplement recommendations have not changed - we've just incorporated these core recommended ingredients into our various Fit Mother Supplements.

To recap, here are the Core Supplements we recommend Women 40+ take for optimum health... and a very quick recap on why these supplements are important for you:

  1. Vitamin D3 - most women are deficient in D3 (especially during winter) and this vitamin is SUPER important for bone, immune health, mood/stress balancing, and hormone balancing.
  2. High quality Omega-3 - this will help reduce inflammation, improve your heart health & cholesterol, and improve your brain function and memory as you age.
  3. Melatonin - this is a powerful antioxidant will help you sleep better, improve your mood, reduce inflammation... AND it specifically helps women lose weight (see study).
  4. Maca - this is one of the best supplements for balancing your hormone levels, which will help you feel happier and more energized. Maca also reduces hot flashes, reduces sleep disturbances, improves libido, and improves other symptoms of peri-menopause and menopause. Maca naturally balances your hormone levels, which is key when you're over 40.
  5. Probiotics - we can't say enough good things about how important probiotics are for optimum digestion, immune system function, AND brain health. There is so much research on how essential probiotics are. We need to get probiotics into our bodies daily in some form.
  6. Magnesium - magnesium is (arguably) the most important mineral that most women 40+ are deficient in. Magnesium is involved in hundreds of different biochemical pathways that help your body INCREASE energy, IMPROVE stress levels, and IMPROVE heart health. Unfortunately, most women are not getting enough. When you do supplement with magnesium, you will experience improved well-being, sleep, recovery, mood, and stress levels.

Bonus Supplement: A High-Quality Protein Powder - basically, a high quality protein (that's delicious... low in sugar and no artificial sweeteners) is one of most convenient ways to hit your daily protein needs and make quick & delicious meal replacement shakes when you're busy. This is a staple tool for energy, simplicity, and convenience.

Each of these supplements is included in our new Fit Mother Supplement line.

What's unique about our Fit Mother Supplements is that we include these Core Ingredients (besides melatonin) into research-backed supplements alongside other powerful ingredients to help you address your specific health goals AND see the best results & health improvements possible.


Supplement #1: Balance RX: Hormone balancer provides you with the following:

  • Vitamin D3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B12, Folate
  • Organic Maca Powder
  • Plus 11 powerful, safe, and research-backed hormone balancing supplements that will improve your mood, sleep, skin, stress levels, AND make it easier for you to lose weight.
  • You can see the See full label here or read more FAQs here.

We designed Balance RX to be your baseline supplement for improving your mood, sleep, libido, skin, stress levels, and to help naturally balance your hormones around menopause, peri-menopause, and post-menopause. This supplement is a true powerhouse and will help you feel better fast. 

Supplement #2: Heart RX provides you with the following:

  • Magnesium, Calcium, Vitamin D3, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12
  • Turmeric/Curcumin
  • Omega-3
  • CoQ10
  • A powerful, research-backed heart health blend of Berberine, Garlic Extract, Grape Seed Extract, Astaxanthin. See full label here.

Key note: Heart RX contains 300mg of Omega-3 power in it. This is lower than the recommended 1000mg per day in most liquid fish oil supplements. That said, the big benefit of Heart RX is that you're ALSO getting a ton of other very powerful, research-backed anti-inflammatory & heart-health promoting ingredients that will benefit your cholesterol and blood pressure in addition to the Omega-3s. The best course of action is to simply eat some kind of Omega-3 rich fish 2x/week (salmon, sardines, mackerel, herring, trout). Eating fish 2x/week is what Harvard and the American Heart Association both agree on is optimal for heart health (see this). If you're following our Fit Father SuperFuel shake recipes, you're also getting extra plant-derived Omega-3s from chia seeds and hemp seeds.

Key Insight: The combination of Balance RX and Heart RX can replace your Vitamin D3, Maca, and Omega-3 recommendations... while ALSO giving you so many other powerful benefits & research-backed ingredients. We do still recommend you eat cold-water fish (salmon, sardines) that are rich in omega-3s 1-2x per week in addition to these supplements for more food-based Omega-3s.


The following Fit Mother Supplements ( Burn RX Metabolism Booster, Joint RX Support, and Immune RX) provide you with specialized benefits above & beyond the "core" recommended supplements.

Supplement #3: Burn RX helps you burn fat easier & improve your metabolism + blood sugar control with the following:

  • Additional B-complex vitamins for more energy & fat-burning
  • Chromium for better blood sugar control
  • A powerful combination of 12 safe + research-backed metabolism-boosting compounds to help your body burn more fat, have more energy, and get even faster results from your healthy eating & workouts. See full Burn Rx label here.

We don't consider Burn Rx to be an "Essential" supplement... but it sure as heck will make your results easier and faster. For this reason, we include Burn RX  - alongside Fit Mother SuperFuel (available Q1 2021) and Balance RX - in our "Fit Mother Faster Stack."

Supplement #4: Joint RX helps you feel & move younger + reduce pain and recover faster from workouts with the following:

  • Additional multi-vitamin & mineral support specific to joint health.
  • A powerful combination of 7 safe + research-backed anti-inflammatory & joint-health improving compounds that will help you move and feel younger - including: advanced UC-II collagen for healthier joints + skin, Hyaluronic acid for joint lubrication, and Boswellia Serrata for anti-inflammatory benefits. See full Joint Rx label here.

Like Burn RX, we don't consider Joint Rx to be an "Essential" supplement... in that (as discussed above) your core supplement needs are covered with Fit Mother SuperFuel, Heart Rx, and Balance RX. 

That said, Joint RX is an incredible supplement and we do highly recommend you take Joint RX if you're a woman who is... experiencing pain, joint-inflammation, or "wear & tear" discomfort that impacts the quality of your life or your workouts. We also recommend Joint RX for women who want to do everything possible to maximize recovery and actually PROTECT your joints from the damage of old age.

Supplement #5: Immune RX helps give your body additional immune defense against viruses, bacteria, and cancer with 17 research-backed ingredients:

  • Extra Vitamin C, Zinc, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin D3, and Vitamin B6.
  • Elderberry, Echinacea, Astragalus, and L-Theanine for natural immune boosters.
  • Adaptogenic Mushroom Blend that provides research-backed defense against certain cancers, viruses, bacteria, and more. See the full Immune RX label here.

Immune RX is a fantastic, safe, & research-proven way to provide your body with extra immune support during times when colds & viruses are going around. The immune system depends on the proper nutrients to function optimally. Immune RX gives you the added boost for a strong defense system. This is a supplement you will use short-term (for a few weeks/months to get through cold/viral season) when you want a stronger immune system.

Bonus Supplement: Fit Mother SuperFuel Protein provides you with the following:

  • Your high quality protein source
  • Your basic multi-vitamin source
  • Your probiotic source

We designed Fit Mother SuperFuel to be your all-in-one nutrition shake that you can take once per day to give your body 20g of premium protein... over 40+ vitamins, minerals, & organic superfoods... probiotics ... and less than 1g of sugar with zero artificial sweeteners. And SuperFuel is absolutely delicious and it will be available in 2021. For all these reasons, we consider SuperFuel to be the ESSENTIAL core of our Fit Mother Supplement stack. 

Fit Mother SuperFuel alongside a healthy diet we recommend at the FMP can replace your basic multi-vitamin and probiotics supplements, and it's designed to be stacked with the following supplements to meet your complete needs:

In Summary:

  • The combination of Fit Mother SuperFuel, Balance RX, and Heart RX covers ALL the core supplement recommendations (with the exception of Melatonin - we recommend this product here).
  • We recommend Burn RX if you want a faster metabolism & better results from your workouts & healthy eating.
  • We recommend Joint RX if you want to improve your joint health, move younger, and improve your recovery from exercise.
