15 Supplements Our Team Members Can’t Pass Up

From a competitive weight lifter to a busy dad, our team members fuel their routines with these favorite supplements.

There are a lot of supplements out there, and sometimes it helps to get a little guidance when you’re shopping our stores. We asked four team members — who take supplements regularly — about their favorite supplements. Now’s the perfect time to stock up. From an always-on-the-go guy in Atlanta to a weight lifter in Austin, our team members weigh in:

Casey (Austin, TX)

I’ve trained in competitive-style weight lifting for the past two years. I try to keep active as part of my self-care, and I love how this sport challenges me mentally and physically. I have a pre-workout supplement routine that includes Vega Sport Pre-Workout Energizer, and I use different protein powders for different reasons, like collagen protein to support my joints and mobility**, and a plant-based protein powder like Whole Foods Market Sport Plant Protein to support my muscle recovery and muscle building**. For my evening ritual, I make an oatmilk latte with Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen Protein Rest + Recovery for restful sleep and repair overnight**.

André (Atlanta, GA)

I can have an unpredictable work schedule, and I travel so often that my meals aren’t always as balanced as I’d like them to be. I try to supplement what I’m eating with Nature’s Way NutraSea +D Omega-3+Vitamin D Grapefruit Tangerine fish oil and Vital Proteins Peach Matcha Green Tea Collagen in the morning. In the last six months, I’ve also started a new workout regimen and go to the gym about four times a week. I pop Nuun Hydration Tablets in my water bottle, and the flavor encourages me to stay hydrated after my workouts and on bike rides around town.

Suzanne (Bellevue, WA)

As a family, we really like being outside. The Pacific Northwest is so beautiful and lush and green, and it’s a great place to go on day hikes and camping trips. When I pack for a camping trip, I use checklists to plan everything out, including our supplements.

We try to pack light, so I focus on the supplements that are important to us: multivitamins (my daughter takes Garden of Life Vitamin Code Kids Chewable Multivitamins), shelf-stable Garden of Life Dr. Formulated Probiotics and Ultima Replenisher electrolyte supplements to encourage us to stay hydrated**. Since we’re sleeping outside and not in our usual comfy beds, I pack Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium for bedtime. Oh, and ingredients for s’mores are a must.

Keith (Austin, TX)

Our move to downtown Austin a year ago basically cut my morning and evening commutes. Now I get to slow down and have breakfast with my five- and seven-year-old boys, and help them get ready for school.

The boys’ favorite smoothie has a base of almond butter, frozen bananas, almondmilk and cacao nibs, and I add in a little plant-based protein: Amazing Grass Peanut Butter Protein Superfood. Our routine is so solid that they’ve come to expect their supplements every morning. They love the taste of Nature’s Way Juicy Cherry Ultra Pure Omega3 Kids DHA, and then they chase that with the rest of their gummy supplements: multivitamins, probiotics and sometimes L-theanine and GABA.
