My Health Toolkit

There is a world of supplements, gizmos and gadgets out there. Let me list out for you what I KNOW has worked for myself and the thousands of women I’ve worked with.

I’m going to keep it real with you…there is no ‘magic pill’, 
no shortcut and no product that will change your health overnight.  But here’s the good news:

There are certain products that can support your hard work and lifestyle changes, and be wonderful companions on the journey you’re about to embark on.

Everything I recommend,
I use myself. That’s my rule.

If I have not used and loved it at some stage of my own hormonal health recovery, it does not end up on this list. Simple.

Access my recommended list of tools below, complete with insider discounts - all organized by life stage!

Tools for the Cycling Woman

While in your menstrual years, your main focus should be optimizing fertility. The tools below are great add-ons to your journey!

Greens

Women need about one pound of veggies daily. AG1 is your insurance policy to make sure you’re getting the vast array of minerals and vitamins that you should be getting from your diet but often don’t. Plus it’s got probiotics, adaptogens, and more. It tastes great, too.

Try AG1 Get a FREE one-year supply of immune-supporting Vitamin D AND five FREE travel packs with your first purchase.

Electrolytes

Healthy hydration isn’t just about drinking water. It’s about water AND electrolytes. It makes sense. You lose both water and sodium when you sweat. Both need to be replaced to prevent muscle cramps, headaches, and energy dips.

Try LMNT You’ll get a FREE Sample Pack with purchase.

Creatine with Taurine

You could be doing all the right things with your nutrition, fitness, and sleep, but if you don’t have enough creatine in your body, you won’t be able to build or maintain muscle. Creatine+ is key for maintaining both muscle mass and your cognitive health (bonus!). Adding taurine, a key functional amino acid, supports critical cellular actions in your body.

Try Creatine+ Use code DRSTEPHANIE to save 15%.

Protein Powder

As we age, our protein requirements increase as our muscles become more resistant to growth. This protein powder is free of fillers, and tastes phenomenal. Aim for a minimum of 1g protein per pound of ideal body weight.

Try Equip (grass-fed beef) Use code DRSTEPHANIE to get 15% off. Try mindbodygreen (grass-fed whey protein isolate+) Use code DRSTEPHANIE to get 15% off. Try Schinoussa (whey & plant-based) Use code DRESTIMA10 to get 10% off.

Collagen Powder

Clinical studies show collagen strengthens bones, joints, and ligaments; improves gut lining and connective tissues; and improves your skin health. Get the benefits of a complete collagen recovery from a powdered blend that contains 15 grams of grass-fed collagen peptides.

Try Equip Use code DRSTEPHANIE to get 15% off.

Energy Boost

Ketones are powerful macronutrients. You want to keep your blood ketone levels within 1.0 — 2.5 mmol/L. You can get a boost of energy, focus, endurance, and athletic performance with a daily supplement that quickly delivers ketones to your bloodstream and puts you in ketosis within minutes. No fasting or carb-cutting required.

Try HVMN Use code STEPHANIE to get 10% off.

Minerals

Cramping is a natural response to mineral deficiency. Leg and foot cramps can be exacerbated through the menstrual cycle, particularly in the luteal phase.

Try BEAM Minerals Use code BETTER to get 20% off.

Magnesium – Daily

Increased stress load, changes in sleep patterns and hormones in our 40s requires upping our daily magnesium intake. Minimum 300mg-600mg daily.

Try Hello NED (Mello Magnesium) Use code DRSTEPHANIE to get 15% off. Try BiOptimizers (Magnesium Breakthrough) Use code ESTIMA to get 10% off.

Mitochondrial Function/Muscle Growth

Improve your health with Urolithin A, a postbiotic nutrient. It works directly on your mitochondria to improve energy production that naturally lags as you age.

Try Mitopure Use code DRSTEPHANIE to get 10% off.

Nervous System

Improving HRV (heart rate variability) and adaptive recovery are essential to continue to show up as our best. Apollo is a natural way to increase focus during the day and deep sleep overnight. It’s wearable technology that uses the gentle vibrations of touch therapy to promote stress resilience, sleep, focus, recovery, and more.

Try Apollo Get $50 off.

Red Light Therapy

Cells on the surface of your skin absorb red light, which means more collagen is produced, you likely have more energy, and you can experience enhanced healing and recovery. Near red and far infra-red light do even more, promoting detoxification and reducing inflammation.

Try Bon Charge Get 15% off sitewide.

Infrared Sauna

I am incredibly bullish on sauna therapy as a tool for muscle recovery; detoxification and rejuvenation; heart health; stress reduction; and aging well. I decided on an infrared sauna from Sunlighten because of the range of far and near infrared wavelength it offers.

 

Try Sunlighten Use code DRSTEPHANIE to get an exclusive discount.

Cold Water Immersion

Cold water activates brown fat cells (the good kind), leading to improved metabolism, weight management, and enhanced immune response. Cold plunges can offer a controlled and safe environment for cold exposure.

Try Coldture Use code DRSTEPHANIE to get a discount.

Blue Light Protection

We are a dark-deprived society. We need to be in complete darkness to sleep well. Exposure to artificial blue light affects the body’s circadian rhythm more than any of the other colors. Then, your sleep, brain and mitochondrial function, and metabolism are thrown off. Protect your health with day and night glasses (in stylish, modern frames!) that protect against artificial blue and green light.

Try RA Optics Use code DRSTEPHANIE to get 10% off.

Fitness

Cardiopulmonary values like Vo2max and speed output begin to decline exponentially in midlife if we are not training it–up to 8% per year! The Carolbike has AI-backed programs designed to improve your VO2 max and speed markers in just 5-minute workouts.

CAROL Bike Use code DRSTEPHANIE to get $100 off.

Foot Mechanics & Natural Movement

Your feet do a lot for you! Minimalist shoes benefit your foot health by helping to increase your balance, improve your posture, and decrease discomfort. They also allow for proprioception and retraining of the toe and ankle mortise. The shoes are wide, flat, thin, and flexible. All good things when it comes to foot mechanics.

Try Peluva Use code DRSTEPHANIE to get 10% off.

Home Air Quality

Modern homes trap Indoor pollutants from cooking, personal care and household products, allergens, pets, and mold. The air can be up to 10 times more polluted than outdoor air. What you’re breathing inside your home affects your sleep, energy, and overall health. Prioritize an air purification solution with commercial-quality HEPA filtration and real-time air quality monitoring.

Try Jaspr Use code ESTIMA for an exclusive discount.

Tools for Perimenopause

While in perimenopause, your main focus should be stress management. The tools below are great add-ons to your journey!

Temperature Regulation

Conversation in the Bettyverse often lands on thermoregulation. You’re either too hot (flushes!) or too cold. I’ve been searching for a solution for you and finally found it in the Embr Wave 2. You wear this device on your wrist. The Embr Wave 2 stimulates the nerves that sense temperature, so with the push of a button, you can change how hot or cold you feel.

Sleep

Disrupted sleep can start in perimenopause and continue into menopause. Qualia Night is unlike any other sleep product I’ve tried. It helps the nervous system naturally wind down at night. When I take it, I start to feel calmer, but not groggy. I’m actually getting deep sleep again and wake up feeling recharged and refreshed in the morning.
