In the world we live in today, there is an overwhelming amount of supplements, vitamins & quick fixes thrown in our face. With such extreme marketing from all directions, it can be quite confusing and make you feel lost.
My goal is to simplify the concepts, give you my personal experience and opinion & leave you so you are best equipped to make the choice for yourself what you would like to use in your life. So, before we get into my favorites, let’s cover what supplements are.
“A dietary supplement is a manufactured product intended to supplement the diet when taken by mouth as a pill, capsule, tablet, or liquid. A supplement can provide nutrients either extracted from food sources or synthetic, individually or in combination, in order to increase the quantity of their consumption”
Supplements cover a wide variety of products each with their own intended use or benefit. Many people take supplements because they are naturally deficient in an area or its something our body doesn’t naturally produce, therefore you have to get it from another source.
Many of the benefits found in supplements can be provided through the diet, but… let’s face it, it’s hard to get every single thing we are supposed to get in a day with the chaos of life in a perfect diet. Our diet and needs are also specific to each of us as humans, so finding your recipe for supplements is unique to you!
Okay, so now we have covered what a supplement is, let’s dive into what my favorite On-The-Go Wellness products are! These are products that can provide similar benefits as supplements, but I love integrating them in my everyday life to reap the benefits of supplements!
I was introduced to LiquidIV this past year and I have been an absolute fanatic of them since. Initially, I tried these packets as a hangover remedy & it made me come back to life! I was not only amazed at how good it tasted, but how good it made me feel.
Liquid IV is a portable packet of electrolytes aka a hydration multiplier fueled by the science of Cellular Transport Technology. 1 Stick of Liquid I.V. can provide 2-3x the hydration of water alone! Believe it or not, 3 out of 4 people are dehydrated and this can cause problems from fatigue, dizziness, muscle cramps, headaches, brain fog & being a betch LOL!
So what the heck is CTT?
Cellular Transport Technology helps water and key functional ingredients to be absorbed into the bloodstream faster. Typically, when you drink fluids, they pass through the entire digestive system, losing water and other nutrients before your body can absorb them. CTT uses a precise ratio of sodium, glucose, and potassium to create an osmotic force that allows water and other ingredients to be delivered to the bloodstream earlier on in the digestive system. Think of CTT as an expedited delivery system in your body so you can feel better, faster!
SODIUM + POTASSIUM + GLUCOSE + WATER = CTT
Benefits of a Hydration Multiplier:
- 3x More Hydration than Water
- 5 Essential Vitamins
- Non-GMO, No Artificial Flavors, Convenient
- Improve performance, Optimize Travel, Burn More Calories, Enhance Mental Clarity, Reduce Signs of Aging
When to Drink/ How I Drink them:
- First thing in the morning! Great for replenishing hydration after sleeping for 8 hours with no water
- Before and After Drinking Alcohol — I am personally SO sensitive to alcohol, I basically have the hangovers of a 50year old at 23 years old lol. So I take a lot of precautions before drinking & these are lifesavers
- Before, During & After your workout — you don’t have to do this every day, but if I am feeling lethargic and dehydrated I’ll pop one in my water and drink it as a little pick me up!
- Traveling — I always keep a few of these in my bags, nice for immunity and jet lag!

More Labs is a heaven-sent company that has products varying from MorningRecovery Drinks, Probiotics, Liquid focus and more! This drink also has saved me from many hangovers, yass! I love to go out and be social, but I sure am a baby when it comes to surviving the aftermath! Everything from MoreLabs is perfect on the go as well which is a must for me.
After discovering the healing powers of their Morning Recovery drink, I dove into learning more about who they were as a brand and what other products they offered! I struck even more gold! Beyond the Morning Recovery, my other fav is the Aqua Probiotics. Your gut health reflects your overall health!
The Aqua Probiotics combine two probiotic strains, [Lactobacillus Rhamnosus and Bifidobacterium Animalis Subsp. Lactis], to help maintain digestive health and naturally boost your immune system. Probiotics are known to promote a healthy balance of gut bacteria and have been linked to a wide range of health benefits including digestive health, immune function, and more. So we def love a good probiotic in the mix.

Next in the lineup, the powerhouse brand, Four Sigmatic! I came across Four Sigmatic this past year as well and I’m so glad I did. With products varying from Adaptogen Coffee, Cacao Elixirs, Lion’s Mane and so much more. They are a natural superfood company founded on the ideals that we can heal from nature, utilizing all-natural ingredients! As I’ve gone through my health and fitness journey, I’ve found that the quote, “Let food be thy medicine,” to be the pinnacle of all. That is why I love FourSigmatic!
Four Sigmatic uses only the best of the best superfoods! The most nutrient-dense and most studied — Coffee, green tea, reishi, chaga, blueberry, moringa, turmeric, lion’s mane, pumpkin, and cordyceps are all Four Sigmatic foods!
So what does Four Sigmatic mean? The term comes from a statistical map of all foods. Only 50 foods qualify as “Four Sigmatic” because they are four sigmas (standard deviations) above average food.
“It’s never been harder to make good choices for your health. If you find yourself stuck in the coffee-crash-wine-melatonin-groggy-coffee cycle, or surrounded by sniffling kids and sneezing coworkers, we’ll help you cut through the fads and take the guesswork out of wellness. Four Sigmatic fits transformative magic into your every day with minimal effort. We upgrade daily rituals so you don’t have to start anything new. From easy-to-use elevated coffee and better evening rituals to cleaner protein post-workout and edible skincare, we help everyone meet the demands of modern life.”
– Four Sigmatic
What Products I use/ My favs:
- Mushroom Hot Cacao with Reishi
- LOVE these portable to-go packets, perfect for a tasty hot choccy mix — I’ll drink this in the morning or when I am on the go as an addition in a turmeric latte
- Mushroom Coffee Mix, Lion’s Mane and Chaga
- Lion’s Mane = brain’s best friend. Long used by the Buddhist monks to help with focus during meditation & getting creative. Then to compliment the Lion’s Mane, the Chaga mushrooms that also help to support your daily immune functions.

I used to eat oatmeal every morning for breakfast in high school, but man did I hate the process of making it… even though it was simple, it wasn’t a grab n go deal, which I was so thrilled to find Mush Overnight Oats!
Mush Overnight Oats are pre-packaged overnight oats, in several different flavors. Made from only 7 ingredients, they are Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, High in Fiber, No added sugar… and actually taste good. The amount of calories varies per flavor but I truly enjoy eating these! Some days, I will just eat the to-go pouch in intervals as it does make me full pretty quick!
“Unlike traditional oatmeal, MUSH Overnight Oats are cold-soaked in dairy-free milk and never heated. By keeping the ingredients cool, we don’t cook off valuable nutrients. The resulting product is pudding-like in texture, decadent in flavor, and always fresh.”
My last on-the-go favorite is Rx Bars. You probably are familiar with this one by now, but if you’re not RXBars are protein bars made from only 3 ingredients. Again, I try to get as close to nature as I can while being as convenient as I can. I love it when I can actually be familiar with the ingredients and can properly pronounce them haha! In nutrition, less is always more.
RX Bars originated by two individuals who were looking to simplify the protein bar game by just letting people know what’s exactly in what they’re eating. I love this idea of being real and raw with branding and ingredients. It’s hard enough to not eat certain foods but then being marketed into something that’s healthy, but actually not healthy… it gets confusing!
But the good thing is, individuals like myself are here to help you along the way! I hope you enjoyed learning about my top 5 wellness products on the go! Each product is linked if you are interested in learning more or purchasing for yourself, I promise they won’t disappoint!
