Postpartum Supplement Guide for New Moms

Welcome to the world of being a new mom. It’s a beautiful, life-changing experience that is so unique and special. Amongst the thrill and excitement during this new chapter, you may be feeling extremely tired, like there’s not enough time in the day to get tasks done, and feel challenged to find the motivation to get a postpartum workout in. This is so common mama, you are not alone!

There are many lessons we learn throughout our life, and one of the most important lessons is to put your health first! As mothers, we want to always be sure we can provide for our little ones and keep them healthy, and that starts with us. It’s not always easy, but having your health (and energy!) is paramount when raising a family. 

We know the challenge that comes with filtering through various products from brands that make big promises with very little research to give you peace of mind. With a new baby in your home, the last thing you likely have time for is worrying about supplement ingredients and deciphering what will legitimately help maintain your health during your postpartum experience. We know, because we’ve been there, and we worked hard to create unique formulas that are safe and effective, whether you’re postpartum or not! Below are just a few of our favorite postpartum supplements to help give you that push to get started and keep your body energized & hydrated. 

POSTPARTUM ENERGY: Peach Mango Max Aminos

LFTD Peach Mango Max Aminos supplement with woman blurred in the background working outLet’s just start with the fact that pre-workouts can be intimidating, we know this. You likely have many questions when shopping the wide variety of pre-workouts that are on the market today, and have a tough time deciphering all of the ingredients to determine if there are stimulants or high caffeine levels. Most exhausted moms are just looking for something that will help them get enough energy to get a workout in while the baby naps, without experiencing a crash afterward! 

LFTD.’s Peach Mango Max Aminos is a perfect postpartum supplement because you get critical amino acids with only 125mg of caffeine, and it gives you the perfect energy boost to get going while providing mental clarity and focus when you need it most. If you need to double your dosage for an extra boost of energy, it’s safe to do so, but normally one scoop does the trick. The peach mango flavor is genuinely tasty and refreshing, making it easy to sip on throughout the day for stamina if preferred!


LFTD BCAA's and Electrolytes with lemons and limes in the backgroundLike we said earlier, once you become a mom, you can very easily forget to take care of yourself. Staying hydrated is one of the most important factors in maintaining your health and seeing results during your postpartum fitness journey. When you need something that will replenish you faster and keep you hydrated longer, BCAAs + Electrolytes will be your go-to. Long gone are the days of relying on Gatorade with added sugar and calories, but we’ve kept the nostalgia with our thirst-quenching lemon-lime flavor. 

LFTD.’s Lemon-Lime BCAAs not only provide the essential amino acids needed to help your body recover after a good workout but there are no harsh stimulants in our formula so you can stay hydrated all day and night. As an added bonus, long-term daily supplementation of BCAAs can improve your immune response, meaning this will help you build up your immune system to help fight off nasty viruses and keep sickness out of the home!


LFTD Fruity Cereal Protein shake in front of 3 fruity cereal frosted donutsJust like it’s easy to forget to drink water, it’s just as easy to forget to feed yourself sometimes when you’re a new mom. You may become so consumed with your baby’s feeding schedule that you put your own nutrition on the back burner! When you find yourself needing something fast that will truly nourish your body and leave you feeling satisfied, protein is going to be your best bet. While it’s not necessarily a warm, home-cooked meal, making a protein shake is a quick and easy postpartum supplement that will keep you full and let you focus on your little one! LFTD.’s formula is low carb, low fat, and low sugar, which makes it a perfect aid for postpartum weight loss while giving you the perfect amount of protein to keep your day going.

Not only does collagen help benefit skin elasticity and stimulate hair and nail growth, but it also aids in reducing inflammation and maintaining the integrity of your cartilage to protect your joints. Long days of baby holding will take a toll on your body, and collagen is a great supplement to help you maintain your strength! Our powder formula is unflavored, making it simple to mix into your protein shake or any hot or cold liquid of your choice. 

Postpartum Health is Wealth

There’s nothing more important than your health, and it’s something that shouldn’t be taken for granted. If you don’t prioritize yourself, it makes it exponentially harder to take care of your loved ones. We understand this philosophy, and that’s why we have worked hard to create supplements that are uniquely beneficial for postpartum mothers. Wherever you’re at in your postpartum journey, LFTD. Lifestyle has the supplements that will help take your experience to the next level and give you the energy you need to take on the world (or just your tiny humans!).
