Supplements are, just that: Supplemental. The REAL food you eat according to PR1MEBODY will have the most profound effect on how you look, feel and perform. As in the plan, we've grouped the supplements in order of importance and impact for you to consider on your PR1MEBODY journey. The quality supplements is as important as the quality of food you eat. Cheaper supplements from brands without a reputation for quality and health may not only be less effective, but also potentially damaging to your health.

FORM PROTEIN POWDER
Perfect for post workout shakes and when else indicated in the plan.
Protein, from the Greek 'Proteos' meaning 'of most importance'. From head to toe proteins are the building blocks that make us. You're body is in a constant state of renovation so replacing protein and providing new building blocks for your new body is essential. Protein is portioned at every meal in PR1MEBODY but additional protein after exercise or as a snack is extremely beneficial. Its also very satiating which keeps the hunger hormones at bay.
Form is a brand I’ve respected since its beginning. As well as using premium ingredients, nothing artificial and tasting great (rare for a plant based protein powder!) the company holds ethics in the highest regard. Dairy can be inflammatory and/or cause gut issues which is why i prefer and recommend a dairy free protein powder.
OMEGA 3 FISH OILS
One of the best all round health booster supplements you can buy. Quality is extremely important. Potent natural anti-inflammatory boost to optimise nutritional health. Heart, brain, nerve, gut, hair and skin health all benefit from Omega 3 intake.

Magnesium, Zinc and 5HTP: 3 of the best nutrients for optimising recovery and hormonal health. Also includes calming amino-acids.
