1. Thorne Amino Complex

Although most of us tend to focus our attention on the physical portion of our workout—One more mile! Two more sets!—a big factor for a successful training session happens after a workout is done: in the recovery phase.

That’s where Thorne’s Amino Complex comes in. The branched-chain and essential amino acids in Amino Complex have been shown through clinical trials to promote the growth of new, lean muscle mass—therefore supporting your post-workout recovery.* Because it comes in two great-tasting flavors, Lemon and Berry, kick-starting your recovery isn’t just good for you, it tastes good, too.

Cymbiotika

6. Cymbiotika NAD+ Activator and Anti-Aging Molecule

In the last few years, research has found that nicotinamide mononucleotide, a molecule that occurs naturally in all living things, may show promise for increasing your lifespan.

NMN is a form of vitamin B3 that’s a precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), one of the most abundant and crucial coenzymes in your cells. In other words, NMN becomes NAD through a series of chemical processes, and NAD helps your cells function optimally. NAD levels decrease with age, and research even indicates human beings lose about half by middle age. When we boost NMN levels in the body, we enhance the biosynthesis of NAD and help restore declining NAD levels, producing an anti-aging effect.
