All beverages are now $3! We spent this week discussing all the different beverages we offer and how they might help you get through your workout if not day.

Today we’re finishing the list: we’re talking about the rest of the FitAid products! These are basically liquid multivitamins, each directed towards a specific purpose.

FocusAid Energy Blend in Melon Mate (5 calories: 1g/0g/0g) containing 100mg of green tea and Yerba Mate-derived caffeine.

This drink contains nootropics, one of the new hot words in the health & fitness industry, are substances that claim improvement in the cognitive brain function, “particularly executive functions, memory, creativity, or motivation, in healthy individuals”.

When should I drink it?

  • Mornings or afternoons when you need to focus and be alert for work, or for workouts.
  • On the weekends prior to your physical activity away from the gym: running, cycling, hiking, ball sports, house projects, hobbies, etc.

What’s in it?

GABA which aids with stress relief and mental clarity, Alpha-GPC to boost brain function related to learning and memory, Green Tea extract and Yerba Mate for overall energy, B-Complex to assist nervous system and immune system functions, Acetyl-L-Carnitine to nurture brain health through neurotransmitter support. Sweetened with bestevia and monk fruit extract.

ImmunityAid Support Blend (40 calories: 9g/0g/0g, caffeine-free)

You know why people give or get orange juice when they “are under”/have colds? Yeah, this is the drink with the right ingredients, not some sugary water (organic with fresh ingredients or not).

When should I drink it?

  • They’re probably my favorite drink when I just need a beverage and want to avoid caffeine. It helps that it’s not too tart like some of our other offerings.
  • I like these if I feel “off” (thanks Seattle!)
  • Also when I’m not consistently mentally and/or emotionally positive, which leads to a weaker immune system.

What’s in it?

Echinacea for an immune system boost,  Zinc also helps your immune system by jump-starting your recovery systems, Vitamin C because there are so many benefits to it, Magnesium since it’s literally in every cell of your body and is required for you to function as a human, tons of other vitamins (A, C, D3), L-aginine for blood flow, and root extracts (because plants). Sweetened with agave nectar and organic stevia leaf extract.

LifeAid Daily Blend (40 calories: 9g/0g/0g, caffeine-free)

They market this one as “a great daily soda or diet replacement.” With ingredients like Turmeric, Magnesium, Rosemary, Oregano, Cayenne, Ginger, and Vitamin C (that shit sounds like a combo of a medicine cabinet and a spice rack) + Vitamins it’s no wonder it’s better than a can of sugar water!

When should I drink this?

  • Think of this as their answer to Gatorade.
  • Literally anytime you want a slightly-bubbly drink.
  • I’ve had luck with it as something to go with lunch, but also mid and post-workout, especially if ya thirsty.

What’s in it?

Turmeric to reduce inflammation, Magnesium for your cardiovascular system, Rosemary extract for the immune system, Oregano extract, Cayenne extract, Ginger extract, vitamins (B-Complex, calcium), and a bit of sugar for carbohydrates.

PartyAid Recovery Blend in Berry Bliss (40g: 9g/0g/0g and caffeine-free)

Replenishes essential nutrients because you party as hard as you train. Can be used as a mixer, but I prefer the tastes of KILL CLIFF for that. If you’ve ever been to a Champagne Friday at the gym you’ve probably seen me put it in a red cup before the bubbly. Of the FitAid-brand drinks I prefer the taste of this or ImmunityAid.

When should I drink it?

  • Smart to have these before/during/after an evening of fun.
  • Also the day after said evening.

What’s in it?

Milk Thistle for liver health, 5-HTP which is a precursor to serotonin and melotonin, vitamins and minerals (B-Complex, C, D3, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc, Potassium), Eleuthero Root which helps regulate stress response, L-Tyrosine which is beneficial to brain function when fatigued or sleep-deprived, Electrolytes for muscular function, L-Carnitine for energy production and metabolism.


Just remember, none of these drinks we discussed this past week do much if you’re not already taking care of yourself through good nutrition, adequate rest and relaxation, and constantly-varied functional movement training executed at mild and high intensities!
