Supplement Tips

Plant protein is a great option not only for those who choose a vegan or plant-based lifestyle, but also for those who may have trouble with digesting dairy. Can plant protein powder be as effective as a whey protein powder? Yes, if you have the right formula.

“So what supplements do you take?” This is often how we decide for ourselves what supplements we should take – a stratagem that’s based strictly on another person’s results, lifestyle, and nutrition choices, let alone their personal health history. The decision of what supplements you should take should be based on your OWN health history, your unique lifestyle, and above all, your personal health and fitness goals, not someone else’s.

You are what you eat, so here’s hoping that you’re getting plenty of vitamins. Vitamin deficiencies can cause a variety of neurological disorders, digestive problems and other issues. If you don’t get the vitamins you need, you may experience some unpleasant changes in your body, such as tingling in your hands and feet, severe fatigue or even hair loss—all things you’d probably like to avoid.

So we know that amino acids are organic compounds that serve as the building blocks for proteins. We know that some amino acids are considered “essential,” because the body cannot make them on its own. Many of us are familiar with the branched-chain amino acids, commonly referred to as BCAAs in the world of fitness and health, those precursors to proteins (a.k.a. proteinogenic amino acids), like leucine, isoleucine, and valine. But how do they help us lose fat and lean out?

We all have tried consuming vitamins in different ways, whether by capsules or powder form.  Liquid Vitamins are another way to help the body receive the appropriate nutrients for optimal health.  In fact, liquid form has many benefits compared to other forms of intake.

For instance, liquids can reach the bloodstream quicker compared to solid forms to provide adequate daily nutrition---and they are also easier to swallow.  Capsules and tablets usually contain binders, fillers, and preservatives, which may pass through the body without absorbing nutrients. 

January always brings the regular New Year’s resolutions for weight loss; and with that increased exercise and decreased overall calorie intake, comes an increased and critical demand for nutrients. Eating healthy is important, but do you know how much food you would need to consume to get the proper amount of nutrition?

Did you even know that there are different types of proteins? Do you even read the back of the supplement bottle you're taking, or just go by what the fitness celebrity endorsing it says? There are whey protein isolates and concentrates. What is casein? Which is which? What are they, what do they do?

Protein powders are a long-standing staple of any fitness enthusiasts’ pantry, and with the advent of new protein powder types, it’s time to consider if whey protein is right for you.

As an athlete or everyday fitness guru, maintaining quality energy is of utmost importance.  You may have tried countless of high-energy supplements, but haven’t found the right product.

Did you know that some foods are considered “fat-burning”? These foods are packed with key nutrients, like healthy fats which are key to breakdown and metabolism of bad fats. Some contain lean protein which keeps us feeling full and provide nourishment to our muscles.

The more muscle we can maintain or build…the more calories we can burn! Other foods on this list contain special nutrients like antioxidants, vitamins and minerals which all have a supportive role in fat burning. Our bodies are truly amazing and complex machines! Feed them right. Here’s our list of the best “fat-burning” foods to consume:

Metabolism is the way your body uses food for energy. If you have a slow metabolism, you know how it can make weight loss frustrating. Fortunately, there are supplements that may help speed up your metabolism so you can lose weight.

I walked into a small training facility just outside of downtown Phom Phen, to teach a seminar. When I glanced at the mat, I was fairly certain it had never been cleaned. Dangerous and sometimes deadly forms of bacteria, such as MRSA and VRE are now very commonplace, and can usually be found in local gyms, schools, and many places you would never think to consider. Contracting an infection after training on equipment or rolling on a mat is now a real possibility that we all have to face. Even small wounds can become big problems if they are not properly taken care of.
