If you walked into one of our Lindberg Nutrition retail stores with the goal of getting healthier, we'd suggest using products from the three nutrition categories below. Whether you're a bodybuilder or a grandmother, you need foundational products to achieve optimal health. Make it your priority to take a good multi-vitamin, whey protein, flax and fish oil daily.
Getting all the nutrients your body needs is easy with a multi-vitamin formula. 1-per-day is a solid formula that gives you high potencies of just about every vitamin and mineral except calcium and magnesium. To upgrade to a more potent formula, try Lindberg Varsity Pack 2 or Pink Pack for Women. Each one contains healthy amounts of all minerals, including calcium and magnesium, in an 7 or 8-capsule-a-day formula. Varsity 2 also comes in convenient powder formula, Varsity 2 Powder.
One serving per day of whey protein provides 25 grams of high quality protein with minimal carbs and fat. That's equal to the protein in a 4-egg breakfast, without the fat. It's ideal between meals, after workouts or as the foundation for a meal. Ugrade to a whey isolate if you are seeking a completely fat-free and lactose-free product. Our favorite is Fitness Labs WheyFit Isolate, and Lindberg Natural Whey.
& Fish Oil
Everyone—even kids—should take 1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil and at least 1 fish oil softgel a day. Flaxseed and certain fish oils supply the body with important omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s play a critical role in the health of your skin, joints, cell membrane structure, and cardiovascular and nervous systems. Flaxseed oil has 5 times more omega-3s that any other oil. It's a rich source of the omega-3 fat, alpha linolenic acid, which cannot be manufactured by your body and must come from your diet.
Fish oils including cod liver oil provides two other essential omega-3 fats, EPA and DHA. Try Lindberg Organic Flax Oil or Lindberg Cod Liver Oil Liquid. Or if you prefer capsule formulas, try Fitness Labs Omega-3 Fish Oil Concentrate.
