    Discover the Superhuman in you!

    Take our quiz and find which supplements your body is craving.

    If you are anything like me (Baal-willing, you’re not), then you absolutely can’t stand and hate Game of Thrones deep down inside, with a passion. And the reason you hate it is because you can’t stop watching it again and again and even as you watch it, you know you should be, say, exercising or eating kale or doing something healthier. (Maybe I’ll watch Season 7 while exercising and eating kale simultaneously?). To me, Game of Thrones is something like the strongest version of the meth made in Breaking Bad, but formulated as an HBO series TV show rather than small blue crystals. Sorry Heisenberg, you lost.

    Since I am concerned about the health and performance of each of the characters, because I want Season 7 to go as amazingly as possible -- I realized it is essential that our favorite (and our least favorite) characters start taking supplements and vitamins immediately, to make sure they’re in the best shape for all the upcoming battles and adventures that are about to start. As a result, even though none of them ever asked me (Tyrion, I’m still waiting for your email to ask me my advice!), here are my recommendations on which supplements each GoT character needs to take to make sure the upcoming season goes the best for them.

    But before I dive in, our lawyers insist we warn you: if you, dear reader, are a character on a TV show, do not follow the suggestions here, because all suggestions here are finely tailored just for the particular characters in question. Each individual TV show character on each series is different, with different needs. And you should consult the medical professional on your TV series as to what your character should take.

    Okay, with the legalese out of the way, let’s jump in. And while you read this, I want to ask you: any other characters or supplements I’m missing? Just leave a comment on our IG or Facebook post and let us know!

    Perfect Supplement Stack for Each GoT Character

    Jaime Lannister

    Jaime hasn’t been the same since he lost his hand. Omega 3 fatty acids will help him for injury. And collagen will help ensure he has healthy joints so he can improve his one-handed swordsman skills.

    Cersei Lannister

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Cersei definitely needs both Valerian Root to calm down -- which is ironic, since Valyria is coincidentally one of the other lands outside of Lannister control. Melatonin will also help her relax. She needs Liposomal Glutathione to help her give up alcohol, and collagen will help her regrow her hair that has been shamed away.

    Daenerys Targaryen

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Daenerys definitely needs some ginger because of the motion sickness she’s likely to get from riding on her dragons all the time. Liposomal Vitamin C is great for the smoke damage after she survived the fire that almost burned her alive. And both probiotics and collagen are great for her digestion, after she had to eat the horse heart. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s already taking collagen because HELLO, look at that gorgeous skin. But she should definitely use collagen sourced from fish, since it will offer her the most bioavailability for her eternally youthful glow -- and in stick pack format since she’s always on the go. Perfect to put a collagen stick into your pocket before you jump on a dragon.

    Jorah Mormont

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Oh, poor Jorah! With his skin having turned to scales, he definitely needs at least 1 scoop of collagen peptides in his daily diet to help smooth rejuvenate and rehydrate his skin. We suggest he pair collagen with a Liposomal Vitamin C supplement, as the later helps to stimulate natural collagen production in the body. I’m pretty sure he needs a lot more where that came from. Finally, Liposomal Glutathione will help to boost his immunity and detox his damaged cells to further help his skin recover.

    Jon Snow

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Given the cold weather when he was killed and the constant murmurs of his resurrection, Jon definitely needs some Vitamin D to stay healthy in the dark winter of his death in the cold north. And when I say Vitamin D, I mean more than just what the sun can offer. Winter is here indeed! Vitamin B12 will also help him regenerate his nerves, which is important if he is indeed brought back to life as many of us suspect will happen. Sidenote: Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was a supplement that could actually bring someone back to life? Please Netflix errr, HBO, show us where we can get the good stuff;)

    Sansa Stark

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Sansa is just too passive, letting everything just happen to her. Until recently. Some Yerba Mate will give her more energy, but she should also start reading some feminist literature and take a daily scoop of collagen peptides will help to keep her radiant red mane in tact.

    Arya Stark

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Arya was great at putting on the masks and turning into other people. But Oxytocin will help her understand other people and their strange behaviors towards her better. And Marine collagen will help her keep her skin tone smooth and glowing during all those face shifts.

    Theon Greyjoy, aka Reek

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Ah, Reek, from that subplot that pains me so much I just can’t get enough of it. Reek needs every possible supplement in the entire warehouse to help him return to normal. Glutathione, the body’s master antioxidant, is a good starting point. A high bioavailability Liposomal Vitamin C will also help to rid his body of bacteria and heal his wounds faster. And Dong Quai for post-traumatic stress disorder will only do him good as well.

    Bran Stark

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    From the subplot that should go away and I hope just disappears from Season 7, Bran Stark could use Choline Bitartrate to make his lucid dreams even more lucid and even more dreamy. And because he’s in a bad place, a premium Boswellia extract is known to help improve the mood.

    Robert Baratheon

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Robert Baratheon is the king of alcoholism -- so Liposomal Glutathione will help him better manage the symptoms of his hangovers, detox his liver ( when he’s not on the booze train) and restore his energy.

    Joffrey Baratheon

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Joffrey needs to immediately and without hesitation drink 1 full gallon of rat poison, so that he kills himself as quickly and as painfully as possible. Our lawyers insist that we tell you that you should never touch nor drink nor go near rat poison yourself and we are in no way recommending this -- unless you, too, are a murderous dictator-king who massacres every innocent, good, beautiful person who comes into contact with you in any way just for shits and giggles. (In which case, it is recommended to take the rat poison immediately.) Also, does anyone use the phrase “shits and giggles” anymore other than my mother and, apparently, me?

    The Hound, aka, Sandor Clegane

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Whey Protein will help him to build more muscle, but we might recommend he consider Collagen Peptides as a high absorbency alternative to make him even stronger Liposomal Vitamin C may help heal the burn on his face that he has suffered as a kid.

    Tyrion Lannister

    IMAGE BY: The Telegraph

    I’ll confess, Tyrion, a man whose height is more than one standard deviation away from the average height (no, that isn’t a euphemism at all) is my favorite character and while many dream of being the hot cool guy, I dream of being the weird little creepy midget. But damn, this midget is smart and witty! Ginkgo Biloba may make him even smarter, as well as Liposomal Glutathione, which supports cognitive function and will ease the symptoms of his chronic hangovers.

    Littlefinger

     

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Littlefinger needs some 5-htp to help control his appetites -- not his literal appetite, but his metaphorical appetite: his desire and greed for money, women, everything. 5-htp may calm him down. And don’t forget that Littlefinger may need aphrodisiacs for the men visiting his brothels! Glutathione can also help with your memory and Littlefinger seems to remember every little thing - Glutathione may make his memory even stronger.

    Davos Seaworth

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Davos Seaworth, by spending so much time at sea, is at high risk for scurvy. So he definitely needs to megadose with Liposomal Vitamin C to remove that risk. Plus, from his life scraping by on boats and all the situations he’s in, he’s at high risk for infectious diseases, so we’d also recommend he take Echinacea.

    Samwell Tarly

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Ah, Samwell, the chubby nerd! He definitely needs to incorporate a scoop of beef gelatin into his meals in order to improve his gut health and the extra protein will also help to keep him fuller for longer. It will likely help him keep off a few pounds as well. Do they even use the pound-based imperial measurement system in Westeros?

    Stannis Baratheon

     

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Stannis has never found a war he didn’t want to lead his army into, it seems. So he needs some Beta-Alanine for endurance. And his thinking has been a bit confused lately -- sacrificing your own daughter isn’t something many men would enthusiastically consider -- so fish oils with their Omega-3 fatty acids may help.

    Melisandre

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Since glutathione seems to have worked its magic on me, it may help Melisandre with her magic, too! Plus, she’s probably a fan of glycine-rich, Marine collagen powder since she is a very old woman, despite her young & beautiful body. Marine collagen FTW!

    Bronn

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Bronn’s flexibility and dexterity is key to everything he does, and a daily scoop of collagen peptides will help to maintain both mobility and flexibility in someone so active. It will also help to keep his bones, joints, and tendons in good health. Adding creatine to his diet will improve his physical performance and recovery.

    Shae

    Image Source:The Telegraph

    Since Tyrion is my favorite character, it’s probably not a coincidence that the woman I’m in-love with is the same woman he fell in-love with: Shae. That said, given that Shae is a prostitute, she may want to take some turmeric because those have long been associated with healing STDs, although this is not a property that is backed by any scientific evidence. Perhaps magical evidence, though.

    Margaery Tyrell

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Margaery definitely needs to keep her appetite under control and adding some extra protein from a collagen peptides or beef gelatin supplement can do wonders for appetite control. Like Littlefinger, not in a literal sense but in a metaphorical sense of calming her down because she wants too much, too fast. Too bad for someone so cute!

    Tywin Lannister

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Tywin is quite smart, and resveratrol will only help him stay sharp and continue being the genius strategist six steps ahead of everyone else that he is.

    Ygritte

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Since Ygritte spends all of her time being wild in the freezing cold of the north, ironand Vitamin B12 will help her minimize the health risks and feeling of being freezing you get from constant cold exposure. And since she goes long periods without food, adding a scoop of collagen into her meals between fasting will help her to stay satiated and reducing hunger when out in the wild.

    Brienne of Tarth

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Brienne! I hope this season she becomes more in touch with her feminine side, perhaps to become the beautiful person on the outside that she is on the inside just so Jaime can realize that he’s in love with her. Perhaps some estrogen supplementation? Herbal maca is often suggested for more estrogen, but again I wouldn’t be my scientific credentials on that actually working. But it’s worth a try.

    Ramsay Bolton

     

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    5 htp, due to the way it helps to stimulate serotonin production, could help him control his raging outbursts. Theanine and taurine may also have a calming effect on his temper.

    Gilly

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Gilly was pregnant, wasn’t she? I should pay more attention to that sub-plot than I do. I hope she took her folic acid!

    Varys

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Varys is one of the most under-rated characters on GoT and my model for whenever I try to figure out how the Freemasons and Knights Templar secretly went about taking control of our world. Varys could use Glutathione to improve his already-awesome memory even more, and Lutein to improve his vision so that he continues noticing every little thing.

    The High Sparrow

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    The High Sparrow may want to give kava-kava to his followers, to continue hypnotizing them to follow him.

    Yara Greyjoy

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Yara, we suspect, is taking D-Aspartic Acid, because, it is alleged, DAA boosts testosterone levels. And her testosterone seems to be as high as her ship’s mast!

    Oberyn Martell

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Oberyn Martell lived the life I want to lead, in the place I want to live it… at least until someone pushed in his eyeballs in the most painful moment for me in the entire series. Boswellia Serrata and 5 htp would help him keep calm and soothe his temper. And the fact that the actor that plays him is Chilean and I watched GoT while living in Chile is a total coincidence!

    Grey Worm

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Grey Worm is the soldier’s soldier. A whey protein will help him to build his muscle mass, and Beta alanine will help maximize his performance.

    Olenna Tyrell

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Olenna needs some skin-rejuvenating Marine Collagen so that she appears years younger than she actually is. But she has the perfect personality for her age! If you have never googled photos of the actress when she was young, you must do so immediately; I’m fully convinced that she was the most beautiful 30 year old in 1969. Ah, Cronos -- the ancient Greek monster-god that ate his own children… and the God of time. Time ravages all. Well, except when you take a daily scoop of marine collagen.

    Khal Drogo

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Every woman I know is in love with Khal Drogo, surely due to his rigorous intellect as well as his PhD in Executive Leadership. Khal Drogo could use a daily (maybe even twice a day) collagen supplement to keep his long braids thick and healthy.

    Benjen Stark

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Uncle Benjen could use Vitamin B12 because it helps reduce the cold feeling you get in the north.

    Mance Rayder

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    Like the other creatures living in the north, he needs B12to help minimize the pain of the constant cold, and collagen to help keep him full while going the long-periods without eating. Collagen also helps hydrate your skin in the cold, cold winters.

    Dragons

    Image Source: The Telegraph

    The beloved dragons definitely need to take a boswellia serrata extract daily to help reduce the inflammation in their lungs, and Liposomal Vitamin C to help boost their immunity and detoxify the smoke damage in their lungs.

    And for all of the characters -- don’t forget to take your Milk of the Poppy, the ultimate pain reliever in Westeros.
