The GOAT may be retired for good, but his health and wellness brand is still flourishing. Over the past two years, I’ve tried many of the TB12 products Tom Brady has released. Here, I’ll list those I felt worked best.

“The TB12 Method is modeled after the daily habits Tom uses to perform and recover at an elite level,” they explain on the website. In 2004, Brady met Alex Guererro, who is the co-founder of TB12. Guererro offered Brady a new approach to healing injuries and muscles. Together, they then developed muscle pliability.

By now, the story is very well-known. Brady and Guererro’s process worked wonders. It helped Brady not only play quarterback in the NFL until the age of 45, but also play at such a high level that many feel like he’s the best quarterback of all time.

Launch of the TB12 Brand

In 2013, Brady and Guererro launched the official TB12 brand, aiming to share the success of their method. In 2017, Brady’s book, The TB12 Method, was released. Shortly after, TB12 performance centers began to open across the country.

Though there are numerous categories of products, today the TB12 brand aims to simply help you feel your best. The ideology is simple. TB12 at its core, is based off of giving your body what it needs to operate at its potential. Fundamental behaviors like sleeping well, in-taking the proper nutrients, and allowing your muscles to recover serve as some of the most important principles of the brand.

My TB12 Methodology

I began jumping into various TB12 products for two reasons. The first was that as a surfer, I wanted to optimize my flexibility, and make sure that my body was prepared to hit the waves as often as possible (as opposed to being sore for a week after one session). Also, I just wanted to feel good consistently. That is key here.

In preparing my list of Tom Brady TB12 products that worked best for me, they each have a basic result that they are attached to. So, Let’s Go.

  • Electrolytes

    Why: Regardless of what area of health and wellness Brady is discussing, he always mentions the importance of hydration. Adding electrolyte drops to my water increased the minerals I was intaking. Furthermore, it made me focus and track how much water I was drinking on a daily basis. The lemon flavored is my favorite. Oftentimes, I find myself drinking even more water than recommended simply because I enjoy the lemon kick.

  • Plant-Based Protein Powder

    Why: It tastes great, to start. It does not have that chalky feel that so many powder mixes do as they clump together in your cup. Secondly, it’s flexible. Meaning, I take the packs with me, and if it’s not convenient to make a shake, I can simply stir a scoop into water. I also found it to be very beneficial in serving as a meal supplement.

  • Foam Roller

    Why: Shifting gears here. This is not as exciting as downing a delicious shake, but it’s equally as important. Through the TB12 Method, I felt the impact of rolling out my muscles. Specifically, I roll my hamstrings and quads twice per day. Then I use the roller on any other part of my body that I trained or emphasized that day. It helps your muscles stay loose and not get too tense, which would restrict their recovery.

  • Sleep Dietary Supplement

    Why: Me and sleep have never been good friends. I tried this product out of curiosity and necessity. What I found was that it helped make the process of sleeping feel natural. Meaning, it does not knock you out like a medication. The sleep capsules helped trigger relaxation and getting my body to wind down naturally. This did not happen overnight. However, this supplement helped develop a routine that my body would get used to, leading to better quality sleep consistently. The importance of sleep in the TB12 Method brings it all together in allowing your body to recover.

  • Pre-Workout Shake

    So, I didn’t love every product that I tried. I struggled with this one. While these pre-workout shake powders mix well with water, downing this mix prior to working out left me feeling physically uncomfortable. I’d rather exercise on an empty stomach and then do the post-workout protein shake.
