How to Optimise Your Life

Obi complete

What’s your big fitness goal in life? We don’t mean what you want to achieve by the end of the month. Or even the progress you want to make by the end of the year. We’re talking the long-term fitness goal that drives you forward.

Perhaps you want to have a set of healthy habits that help you avoid poor health in the years to come. Or maybe your focus is building enough muscle now to offset tissue loss in old age. Your big goal could be setting a great example for your kids or simply living a long and healthy life well into your 90s.


What is a true healthy lifestyle?


The idea of living a healthy lifestyle is different for everybody. But whatever your reason, it’s important that you focus on more than your workouts.

Most of us start our fitness journey in the gym or out doing cardio. This early focus on the physical side of fitness is important, but it soon becomes clear that true wellness involves much more than training.

The behaviours that make up your balanced healthy lifestyle need to be sustainable whatever life throws your way. When you’ve nailed a set of healthy habits that you can stick to regardless of work, travel, and big life changes, you have cracked the code of a true health and fitness lifestyle.

PhD Life Range

Introducing PhD LIFE health supplements

Digest – to support a healthy gut and better digestion 

Your digestive system plays a key role in your athletic performance, fat loss, energy levels, and even your mental health. We know more about the role of gut health than ever before, and experts now urge us to consider the gut microbiome as a “virtual organ” in the body. (

Gut health goes beyond how well you digest your food and the level of nutrients you can absorb from your diet. A healthy gut environment will impact your mental health and mood, cognitive abilities, strength, ability to lose weight, and long-term risk of disease and illness.

Our LIFE range includes Digest, our gut health probiotic in powder, capsule, or gummy options to suit your exact digestive needs. The powder option contains LactoSpore® probiotic, DigeZyme® digestive enzymes, and L-Glutamine to support gut health. The Digest capsules contain Live viable cultures (Bifidobacterium Lactis, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Paracasei, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, Bifidobacterium Bifidum). And the Digest daily gummies are made with Inulin,  DigeZyme®( Digestive Enzymes) L- Glutamine ( for gut health).


Mind – for mental performance throughout the day

A healthy lifestyle is about more than how your body looks and feels. Your mood runs the show, and if your brain isn’t on form, you are more likely to make unhealthy choices throughout the day. That’s why we came up with Mind powder, juice, and capsules as a key part of the LIFE range.

All three versions of our innovative Mind nutrition supplements contain powerful natural nootropic ingredients Cognizin® (Citicoline), Lions Mane extract and Bacopa Monnieri to support mental alertness, focus, and performance. Great news for work, study, and being on top of your game every day.


Vital – micronutrients for every cell in your body

Which vitamins should you take? Our Vital products make it easy to get a daily dose of all the vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients your body needs at every stage of life. Vital Reds powder contains anti-inflammatory ingredients and mindset support in the form of KSM-66® Ashwagandha, Lions Mane Fruiting Body Extract, Lucuma and Montmorency Cherry. And our Vital multi-vitamin in capsule or gummy format is packed with vitamins, digestive enzymes, and anti-oxidants.


Move – for healthier bones and joints

As we get older, our bodies lose elasticity in connective tissue including tendons and ligaments. This can manifest as aches and pains, stiffness, and loss of range of movement. Bad news if you love training!

Look after your mobility and joint health now, and enjoy happier healthier training sessions (and athletic performance) well into your later years. Our Move powder and capsules help support bones, joints, and connective tissue with Collagen, Turmeric extract, and key vitamins and minerals.


Complete – total nutrient support

 Wouldn’t it be great if there was a complete meal nutrition supplement that contained advanced ingredients to support gut health and mental performance? That’s exactly what our formulation experts have created with Complete, a convenient meal solution that takes care of all your nutrient needs. Available in vanilla, chocolate, banana, berry, and coffee caramel flavour options, it’s the tastiest way to give your body complete nutrition support when life gets hectic.


Relax – natural anti-stress support supplement

Life can get stressful, and when you live in a chronic state of overwhelm and busyness, it’s almost impossible to hit your health and fitness goals. Stress impacts almost every healthy lifestyle habit, from your activity levels to training performance, the foods you choose to eat, to what time you go to sleep.

We know that the ability to manage stress has a domino effect on your healthy lifestyle. So we created Relax, a lovely healthy supplement in simple capsule form. It contains calming natural ingredients including Saffron Extract (affron®), KSM-66® Ashwagandha, and Bacopa Monnieri to help you unwind and destress.


Reset – key nutrients for better sleep quality every night

Sleep is one of the core pillars of a healthy lifestyle and long-term wellness. When we decided to create the PhD LIFE range, we absolutely knew it had to include a brilliant sleep supplement. Reset is available as a capsule, juice, or hot chocolate powder so you can choose how to finish your day. Each version contains L Tryptophan, 5-HTP, Magnesium, ingredients that help your body and brain unwind and fall into deep, restorative sleep.
