Your mom (or her mom, or your kids' mom) takes care of everyone else, so turn the tables and take care of her for a change. Better yet, help her take care of herself with supplements and tools that make it easy for her to maintain healthy habits.
1. Optimum Nutrition Opti-Women Multivitamin
Show her you care about her with vitamins designed to support her immune system and overall health.* She may not be as into health and fitness as you are, and she may think you're crazy for cultivating a shelf's worth of pills and powders, but if she's only going to take one supplement, this is a great one. Opti-Women provides 40 active ingredients to fill any potential nutritional gaps in her diet, in two convenient capsules a day.
2. Sports Research Collagen Peptides Powder
If the mom in your life is concerned about her joints or skin, help her out with collagen protein which is designed to support both.* This powder has only one ingredient—collagen from pasture-raised cows—and since it's unflavored, it digests easily and blends unnoticed into any hot or cold beverage, or even soup. It may not seem like an exciting gift, but she'll thank you later.
3. Revel Women's Recovery + Collagen and Coconut Water
This multi-benefit drink mix is so awesome, you'll be tempted to keep it for yourself—better get two. It aids recovery from exercise with vegan BCAAs and coconut water; supports skin and joints with collagen; and makes it easy to down those eight glasses of water a day since it tastes so damn good—perfect for the mom who forgets to drink water or who is surgically attached to a bottle of diet soda.*
4. Bodybuilding.com OGIO Big Dome Duffel Bag
With its cavernous cargo capacity, this duffel lets her carry her gym clothes and shoes with plenty of space left over for the tissues, ibuprofen, and snacks she always seems, magically, to have on hand. Plus, it's way cuter than ordinary black gym bags, and she'll appreciate the light weight and padded shoulder strap that make it comfortable to shlep around all day.
5. Dymatize ISO100 Hydrolyzed Protein Powder
If she isn't on the protein train yet, this is her ticket to ride. If she is on the protein train, this one is about to become her favorite. If it's already her favorite, you're about to become her favorite. ISO100 tastes awesome, comes in a ton of flavors, and has next to no fat or carbs. Possibly even better than breakfast in bed. (Just kidding, cook up that bacon, too.)
6. Schiek Women's Wrist Wraps
For the tough mothers out there—and those on their way to becoming tough—these wraps are the perfect unexpected gift. They provide welcome support for heavy lifting and pushing movements and are super durable and comfortable. Best of all, they fit small wrists, unlike some wraps that are clearly made for dudes. Considering the unheard-of 9.9 out of 10 rating on our site, you can't go wrong.
