Modern mothers are the ultimate jugglers. With all those balls in the air it is easy to feel overwhelmed, fatigued, and depleted. Supplements can be an effective way to help balance your energy, mood, focus and wellbeing so you can balance your family’s busy schedule (and your own) with ease.

SUPPS R US receives regular requests from women looking for support of:

  • Workouts and weight loss
  • Sleep
  • Beauty – hair, skin and nails
  • Mood, energy and mental clarity

 Workout and weight loss

There’s a range of supplements available to help support your workout and weight loss regime.

Pre Workout:

Oxyshred has mood enhancing and energy-boosting benefits to help women achieve more productive and sustained training sessions, resulting in better performance and increased weight loss.

C4 is another popular performance pre-workout supplement to assist with improving performance. Women often consume BCAA (branched-chain amino acids) or EAA’s (essential amino acids) in the gym to naturally help support muscular endurance. Look for electrolytes in supplements to maximise hydration.

Post Workout:

As a general rule, if you train more than 90 minutes per session, then you should consume carbohydrates post-training. If your goal is hypertrophy, then a 2:1 ratio of carbs to fast-digesting whey protein isolate within 30 mins of your workout is advised. Protein powders help to improve recovery and support lean muscle.

Whey protein isolate or hydrolysed whey isolate are great choices for women, thanks to their fast digesting nature. They are rapidly absorbed and contain fewer fats and carbs than blends and concentrates. SUPPS R US recommend this one, with added collagen for a welcome beauty boost.

If weight loss, in particular, is your primary goal, SUPPS R US has a range of products to help increase metabolism, gain lean muscle and burn fat. Try Ghost – Burn v2 & Amino v2 Combo and X50 – Green Tea 30 Serves | Twin Pack as starting points.

Sleep

Scientists have proved that sleep is an essential ingredient for health and wellbeing. Without sufficient quality sleep, our executive function, coordination, mood, stress tolerance, immunity, focus, endurance, and so much more become dangerously compromised.

A good night’s sleep, especially for breastfeeding mothers and mothers of young children, can be hard to come by. Poor sleep cycles can result in a cycle of insomnia and sometimes lead to bouts of anxiety and depression too.

SUPPS R US recommends adding products like EHP Labs OxySleep, Force Element Performance NIGHT OPS, Body Science HydroxyBurn Sleep Rx, and ATP Science Adrenal RX to help you fall asleep faster, stay asleep longer and achieve quality sleep. Wake feeling rested, refreshed and ready to tackle anything that’s thrown your way.

Energy, Vitality and Focus

Often, when women experience burnout and suffer symptoms of brain fog, stress, fatigue, heavy limbs, malaise and restlessness, their adrenal systems need support. B Vitamins are powerful in supporting the adrenal system and renewing energy and vitality. Containing proven ingredients including Rhodiola, as well as Vitamin C, Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin B6, Macro Mike Macro Adrenal sachets help support stress management, energy, stamina, immunity and general wellbeing. For a natural, caffeine-free boost, incorporate a cuppa of Before You Speak Adrenal Reset Coffee into your morning routine.

Boost your overall vitality and wellbeing with the addition of super greens. Look for clean ingredients, natural sweeteners and dense nutritional ingredient lists. The highly recommended Vitality Switch super greens powder is densely packed with goodness, including collagen, probiotics, mushrooms, organic super greens and Himalayan Shilajit to help support brain function, digestion and gut health, energy and nutrient absorption.

Beauty

Collagen is vital for plump, glowing skin, strong connective tissue, healthy nails and hair. As you age, your ability to produce collagen reduces, causing the skin to sag and wrinkle.

Look for clean, quality collagen products. R1 Collagen is 100% superior grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hide collagen peptides that support hair, skin, nails and joints. Add the powder to smoothies (or another beverage of choice, like your morning coffee or tea), make collagen gummy treats, or incorporate it into your breakfast oats. Collagen is extremely versatile and can easily boost many meals.

SUPPS R US is your one-stop-shop for better health. Optimise your workouts, restore your energy and gain back your sense of vitality – even as you juggle the never-ending demands of motherhood.
