There’s always that big debate around supplements. Do they really work? Are they a waste of money? Well yes, sometimes they are a waste of money and sometimes they don’t work but choose the right supplement and it can be a great addition to a healthy diet and active lifestyle, increasing energy, muscle tone and general wellness.
During the last couple of years since becoming a mum, I have tried and tested my fair share of supplements in my quest for that body beautiful. Some I liked, some were ok and some not so much. Here are the ones I recommend splashing the cash on.
1. Protein Excellence Vanilla by Bodyism’s Clean and Lean.
Containing organic pea and sprouted brown rice protein, this is by far the most flavoursome protein powder I have tried. I particularly loved it blended with almond milk and blueberries as a post workout protein smoothie, delicious! The only down side is the price. Retailing at £50 and with 1 pack providing only enough protein for 1 shake a day for just 2 weeks, it is one of the most expensive proteins on the market.
2. The Super Elixir by Welleco.
I don’t know about you but for me Elle Macpherson is the ultimate hot mum. I mean she is in her 50’s and knocks the socks off most women half her age. So when Elle recommends something I take notice. This super greens supplement powder increases energy levels, controls weight and aids skin vibrancy. Plus, unlike the majority of green supplement powders I have tried, The Super Elixir is actually rather pleasant tasting!
3. Classic Protein Chocolate by SunWarrior. Unfortunately with my 2 protein shakes a day habit, I can’t quite afford my favourite Bodyism’s Clean and Lean protein. Lucky for me, I discovered SunWarrior’s Classic Protein. Made from raw, sprouted whole grain protein, it’s free from gluten, GMOs’ and artificial flavours and preservatives. Just make sure you don’t confuse the Classic Protein with the Warriors Blend or you might be sorely disappointed in the flavour department.
