How it Works

One of the primary reasons FitGrit RX works with regard to muscle recovery and pain relief is the strong anti-inflammatory properties of the isothiocyanates, flavanoids and phenolic acid components of the Moringa leaf.



Moringa Tree Leaf


Moringa is very commonly referred to as the “miracle tree” or “the tree of life”. It has been used medicinally for close to 4,000 years and its healing benefits have been passed down generation after generation.


While many plants and trees boast 1 or 2 health benefits, the Moringa tree (leaf) boasts an array of treatments for the body- both internal and external. India’s ancient tradition of ayurveda medicine lists some 300 diseases that are treated with the Moringa leaf: colitis, high blood pressure, dysentery, diabetes, and fluid retention just to name a few.


The moringa leaf can also be rubbed on the temples to relieve headaches, it can be used as a skin antiseptic, to treat eye and ear infections, scurvy and catarrh (inflammation of the mucus membrane).

Additionally, the oils used in FitGrit Rx also play a role in its effectiveness:


  • Evening Primrose Oil has anti-inflammatory and vasodilator properties and has been used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, general inflammation, headaches, and IBS flare ups.
  • Cayenne Oil is widely known for its warming properties and pain relieving properties. It has been used to treat arthritis, stiff necks, and neuralgia.
  • Lavender Essential Oil has many known health benefits, one of which is pain relief.
  • Grapefruit Essential Oil also has many known health benefits, but it’s the oil’s ability to treat muscle cramps and stiffness that makes it a useful ingredient for FitGrit RX.
  • Geranium Essential Oil has anti-inflammatory properties and acts as a natural preservative for the cream.


The formula for FitGrit RX is patent pending and the results speak for themselves! Just give the Grit a go and watch as your body responds to improvements in muscle recovery time and reductions in stiffness and pain.

Science explanation too much? How about quotes from these FitGrit Rx users:

I love everything about [FitGrit]. The texture, the smell and how much it helps heal…[my son] Joey always asks me to rub his hurt foot with it! Oh, and I really love the name 😉
I would argue that, aside from Leslie and Andrew, my wife and I are FitGrit’s biggest fans.
The FitGrit cream honestly works like magic. I come home from an intense workout and apply to the areas that I know will be really sore and follow the directions and the next day I’m feeling refreshed and ready to head to the gym with minimal soreness. This is the best stuff ever!
FitGrit works wonders for more than just workout soreness. When I was pregnant, aches were inevitable. Well, that is unless you have FitGrit. Such a relief for knees, hips and back! As well, (and it may be TMI, but I need to share) there is definitely an anti-inflammatory benefit! Post delivery, I developed quite an uncomfortable hemorrhoid due to all the pushing at birth and I was so desperate for some relief I actually experimented with FG. Guess what? It worked wonders! FitGrit definitely has a multitude of uses!
Using FitGrit Rx in my recovery has been hugely beneficial in my preparation for my Powerlifting competition. I am able to train hard and feel ready to go the next day thanks to this stuff. I can’t recommend this product enough for any competitive athlete.
I suffer from Lupus SLE and Rheumatoid Arthritis and I’m trying to get back to my fabulous body days, but after a few days of exercising the joints started to swell and ache tremendously. My nephew Jeff turned me on to your product. It’s been 24 hours and I don’t feel the soreness in the muscles that were used for demonstration and the swelling in my left wrist has also gone down. It’s time to use it all over. Thank for making the product!
FITGRIT is Amazing!!!! Miracle Cream.
FitGrit played a critical role in helping me recover from a back injury. I could feel it stimulating blood flow and expediting the process.
Leslie is the best! Love FITGRIT!! Great stuff
I received mine yesterday, tried it on my neck and shoulders last night. I woke up with no pain for the first time in a LONG while. Love this and shared with CrossFit friends in VA!
