You’ve finished your workout for the day, and you’re proud of yourself: you hit your hydration goal, you increased your reps on your last round of weights, and you ate well today! But then it sets in....you want brownies. Or chocolate cake. Or a donut. Oh man, you want a donut. But you know it will de-rail all the gains you just made at the gym. How can you stay healthy, and still fill your cravings? The answer lies within a chocolatey, sweet, Quest protein bar.
Are you struggling to stay awake for your morning gym session? Or maybe after a long workday, you’re starting to think you should skip your evening workout and just go home. You need something, anything, to get you ready for that workout! You need a secret weapon, so you never skip the gym again and can maximize your time to achieve your workout goals. We have the answer for you: take a pre-workout supplement.
Supplements were designed to work together. Like puzzle pieces, each supplement in your routine brings something to the table to give you the best workout, fast recovery time, and shocking results. Taking supplements from the same brand is ideal, but few brands can deliver in all areas necessary to achieve your goals.
You’re a well-rounded athlete. You know your way around the squat rack, the treadmill, and you know abs are made in the kitchen. Well-rounded athletes are goal-oriented: fat burning, muscle building, testosterone support, and multi-vitamins, so you never feel too sick to miss a workout. But when you step back and look at your supplements, you might see quite a few brands.
Here at Supplement Superstore, we provide our athletes with high-quality supplements. At other supplement stores, it’s difficult to find a brand that fits all of your needs and has ingredients you can trust. But with brands like Allmax, you have a quality guarantee. The facilities Allmax uses meet Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations for both Canadian government regulations and the United States.
There are a lot of supplements on the market, and they all have different tasks: whey builds muscle, amino acids speed up recovery between workouts and give you a pre-workout boost, etc. But what about weight loss? It can be overwhelming trying to figure out what supplements best serve your weight loss journey, but we’ve made it easy. Here are our top seven weight loss supplements.
Every serious athlete knows the importance of proteins. We consume them, track them, and use them to build muscle. But just as proteins build muscle,amino acids build proteins.Amino acids are the key to building more muscle, and knowing which ones are essential can change the way you view your pre- and post-workout routine.
It’s common knowledge among those with active lifestyles, that protein is key to recovering from workouts and building muscle. Protein comes in many forms: food, concentrates, and supplements. Whey protein is one of the most popular protein supplements on the market, but you might be wondering,why take whey?
Look for chances to cut out sugar and increase your intake of healthy fats. One opportunity is to replace your ‘double-double’ coffee or tea withKetoMate, a delicious sugar-free coconut oil-based coffee or tea flavour booster. Each scoop delivers 6 grams of medium chain triglycerides (MCTs are healthy fats for instant energy) along with mental performance enhancing nootropics.
The ketogenic diet is now the most searched nutrition lifestyle or diet on the internet. It has surpassed other low carb diet variants like the ‘Paleo’ and ‘Atkin’s’ diets and shows no signs of slowing down.
A ketogenic diet is a high fat diet that changes your body’s primary source of fuel from carbohydrates to fats. This happens by restricting carbs to the point that your body has no choice but to break down fatty acids instead for energy. Fats get metabolized into ‘ketone bodies’ which your tissues can use for energy in place of glucose.
With 6g of total BCAA’s it’s certainly dosed well in this area so the recovery element of this product is excellent. The BCAA’s are in a 3:1:1 ratio so it is slightly more leucine heavy than a traditional BCAA product but this will offer optimal recovery.
The nootropic brain function ingredients that are included here are my favourite aspect of this product. With 1200mg of Alpha GPC, 1200mg of Choline Bitartrate, 100mg of Deanol (DMAE Bitartrate), 50mg of Lion’s Mane Extract, Beyond Yourself certainly didn’t skimp on anything in this area and it shows with improved cognitive ability and brain function.
With the inclusion of 100mg of Caffeine and 2.5mg of Huperzine-AAmino IQ give you a nice energy kick and a feel good factor that will last.
Even thinking about our health doesn't happen a great deal in youth and certainly old age is a concept that is so far away as to be effectively non existent. We are fortunate that health and fitness relative to our lifestyle, usually including physical activity of various kinds is virtually automatic when we are young. As we travel through middle age to old age life gets in the way on an increasing basis and it requires an effort to maintain good health and exercise, although still very desirable and definitely to be encouraged, often becomes more difficult or impractical. Appropriate exercise in later years will be dealt with in a separate article but here are three supplements that are very beneficial as the aging process inevitably slows us down. In fact, the following supplements are to be recommended for all ages and are complementary to a balanced diet and exercise but can be considered basic supplementation for seniors.
