Does FitGrit Rx actually work?

Trust us, we wouldn’t go through all this patent, branding and marketing for a product that doesn’t work. Want to know how it works? Just visit our How it Works page and read all about it. But don’t just take our word for it. Read some of our success stories to hear what various FitGrit users have to say.

Where did the idea for FitGrit Rx originate?

Leslie’s husband, Andrew, was the inspiration for FitGrit Rx, and the mix between her background in pharmaceuticals and anti-pharma, homeopathic/naturopathic interests led her to developing an all-natural pain cream that works. You can read the full story on “How FitGrit Rx Came to Be” on Leslie’s page.

My FitGrit Rx is lumpy - that normal?

Yes. Due to the botanical nature of FitGrit RX (the magical moringa leaf) and the organic nature of the coconut oil and shea butter, yes, the cream may have a few lumps.

My FitGrit Rx melted - what should I do?

While heat does not denature the ingredients in FitGrit, it does alter the consistency of the shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil base. No worries though; just shake it up and apply away! If it’s completely melted and you want it to firm up quickly, just place it in the fridge/freezer for a little bit.

How should I store my FitGrit Rx?

If possible, FitGrit should be stored in a cool dry place while actively in use. Leslie stores her in a jar by the shower and a jar in her gym bag.  Although it melts from time to time in the gym bag or the car, it doesn’t affect its ability to work (see the previous question above for what to do if it melts).  Since there are no artificial additives or preservatives in FitGrit, it is best to store FitGrit in refrigerator when not actively in use.

Does FitGrit Rx stain clothing?

If FitGrit comes in contact with clothing it will leave what looks like a “wet mark”. However, this “wet mark” is not permanent and will wash out during the normal wash cycle.

Do I have to apply a loading dose each time I use FitGrit Rx?

No- results may vary.  A loading dose for muscle recovery  is most effective if your muscles feel really tight and swollen after a super intense workout and you know from experience that you are likely to  be extremely sore the next day.  For delayed onset muscle soreness, the loading dose method is also preferable for optimum results.  For mild pain and soreness – only apply when needed.

Got Grit(ty) nails?

We consider gritty nails a badge of honor…but then again, clean nails is a sign of good hygiene, which is always a good thing.  Just invest $2.00 in a good nail brush, keep it by your grit jar and scrub away!

The main ingredient is Moringa Leaf. What’s the story on that stuff?

Moringa oleifera is a fast-growing tree native to sub-Himalayan areas of India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan. It is also grown in the tropics. For centuries, the leaves, bark, flowers, fruit, seeds, and root have been used to make medicine. Moringa has been referred to as a “miracle tree” and has many uses throughout the world.  For the purpose of FitGrit Rx, however, the isothiocyanates, flavonoids, and phenolic acids in the ground up moringa leaves have anti-inflammatory properties.  When we reduce inflammation, we reduce pain and we improve muscle recovery. If you want to read up on all the ingredients and what their benefits are, visit our How it Works page for a scientific breakdown of each!

Why does FitGrit Rx smell so good?

FitGrit RX  is an all-natural botanical blend that contains no artificial preservatives.  Geranium essential oil is the natural preservative used in FitGrit.  The combination of geranium essential oil,  grapefruit essential oil  and lavender essential oil is what gives FitGrit its amazing trademark aroma.
