Fitness Supplement Q & A

Q: I have a question for Bill — I used your EAS supplements and got great results when I was in my 20’s. Now I am 40 and need to lose about 35 lbs of bodyfat while I build my muscles back up. I wonder what supplements you are using these days. What can you tell me about your Right protein shakes, Strongevity Rx, and your GH10x supplements? Should I start with one of these or all of these? What do you suggest?

A: What I recommend is that people approach supplementation in this order: First, make sure that you’re getting  the full spectrum of essential vitamins and minerals every day. Also, make sure that your body has an ample supply of the high quality protein it needs to recover from your workouts. I get a lot of my protein and vitamins from meal replacement nutrition shakes. 24 years ago I introduced the nutrition shake MET-Rx to the fitness world and a few years later developed the EAS Myoplex line of meal replacements. Literally millions of athletes and fitness buffs have used these products to fuel their muscle performance. One of the great things about high quality nutrition shakes is that they are so rich with nutrients while still being low in calories. This makes them an ideal solution for people who want to get fit and strong while also losing unhealthy bodyfat at the same time. NewRightBTF-2_large Myoplex was a great product in its time but today we know even more about protein science and how to filter out the highest quality, most pure protein powders and this is what I use in my new RIGHT nutrition shake. You will not find this in MET-Rx or Myoplex. Right Complete Protein Shakes are built on state of the art nutrition science — up to date for the year 2015. Some of my previous formulas at EAS have not increased in quality over the years and the formulas have changed possibly in the opposite direction.  I always recommend starting with RIGHT Complete Protein Shakes to make sure that you’ve got your essential nutrients covered.

STRONGEVITY RxThe next level of supplementation would be adding STRONGEVITY Rx to your workouts and healthy meal plan. This breakthrough formula includes the scientifically proven effective supplement micronized creatine monohydrate, ubiquinol, and ubiquinone forms for CoQ10 (which medical research has shown works synergistically and additively with creatine), and the biologically active form of Vitamin D3, called Cholecalciferol. These are three key nutrients that when taken together will increase muscle strength, mental energy, and improve recovery time. STRONGEVITY Rx is a supplement that not only helps you get better results faster from your workouts but it is also a longevity formula – studies show that these nutrients help improve both quality and quantity of life and so I especially recommend STRONGEVITY Rx to people over 40 who are working out and transforming their health.

GH10XLevel 3 supplementation is the next step up. This is only something for people who are already working out consistently, eating healthy, getting their protein and vitamins each day, and supplementing with the cellular energy nutrients in STRONGEVITY Rx. GH10x is that next tier product which helps our health and fitness through a different pathway. Gh10x can increase our body’s nitric oxide levels which increase blood flow to muscles and therefore help more nutrients and oxygen be delivered to hardworking cells. Gh10x also helps support the natural growth hormone response we get when we workout following a high intensity interval method. Natural Growth Hormone plays a key role in helping us lose fat and build muscle, and beyond age 40 our natural levels decline significantly. Anything we can do to boost them back up naturally can give us big benefits. Unlike synthetic growth hormone injections, natural GH boosters have no side effects and are much less expensive than the pharmaceutical products. Another benefit of GH10x is that is also contains key amino acids that help volumize muscle cells which helps to give the body that firm and toned look and feel.

In summary, first make sure you are working out hard and consistently. Next, eat healthy, balanced meals. Then, add the Right Complete protein nutrition shakes. After that, you can get better results faster from your workouts by adding in Strongevity Rx. Once you feel that you have all those basis covered, then consider GH10x to take it up a notch. ++ To learn more about Bill Phillips Fitness Supplements visit

  2. Hi Bill, I wanted to sign up for your 12 week challenge, but noticed it said I needed to sign up by the end of February. I’m so bummed! Will you have another challenge? I was so motivated to start, now I’m just bummed.

  3. Dear Mr. Bill Phillips, My husband and I both have Cerebral Palsy. Last summer, we went to a camp for people with disabilities. There is a Tower there. My goal, to climb that tower, started out as wanting to conquer my fear of heights. Mr. Phillips, it has turned into something more. This summer we are going back to the camp and my goal is to get to the top of that tower. I asked my brother (who used to be a bodybuilder) how to train for the tower. He recommended the 12 week program in your book (that he got for me several years ago). I started reading it tonight, 2/28/15. Last summer I had made it to the first crossbar of the Tower. This summer I WILL make it to the top! One more thing…the tower will not be the end of my fitness journey, only the beginning! Please write back with any more help you can give. Sincerely, Lauren Notestine, Toledo, Ohio

  4. Dear Bill, I stumbled upon you on or about 1998 when I started at the gym, made some progress, then got married, and life stumbled upon me….I heard and read about your tragedy and was just humbled on hearing how hard you worked at becoming whole again! I too am 50 and still stumbling with everyday life and raising 3 young ones. They are the reason I’m getting back in the gym and reading up on your articles, etc. One question I have for you now, what are your thoughts on creatine? is still necessary to load up? I’ve looked over your 12 week program, seems most of the exercises I can do except that for some I have to look for alternatives. I’m so glad you believed in yourself and decided to do a comeback. You look amazing, and it’s great your wife is on board with everything you do, she also looks amazing….

    Hi Bill,
    I just wanted to say, congradulations on the return to shape and point out that in certain pictures of you now, you actually look more defined than you did before the injury.
    I think it was Arnold who said that mature muscle will shape better than younger muscle. You look really good again.
