Buyer's Guide: The best foundational products everybody should take


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. A 1-per-day multi is a basic formula that gives you basic potencies of just about every vitamin and mineral except calcium and magnesium. Try Lindberg Mega One, Lindberg Pink® Women's Multi 1, or Fitness Labs Fitness Multi 1.

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 a 7 or 8-capsule-a-day formula. Varsity 2 also comes in convenient powder formula, Varsity 2 Powder.


Whey Protein

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. Upgrade to a whey isolate if you are seeking a completely fat-free and lactose-free product. Our favorite whey proteins are Fitness Labs WheyFit, and Lindberg Whey Protein.


Flaxseed Oil & Fish Oil

Everyone 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 than 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. Try Lindberg Omega-3-6-9 which is a blend of oils from fish, flax and borage, or Lindberg Organic Flax Oil Liquid or Softgels.

Fish oils including cod liver oil provide two other essential omega-3 fats, EPA and DHA. Try Lindberg Cod Liver Oil Liquid or Fish Oil Liquid. Or if you prefer softgels, try Fitness Labs Fish Oil Double Strength or Lindberg Triple Strength Fish Oil or DHA.
