Using Supplements Correctly.

Using Supplements Correctly.

Many athletes and fitness conscience people are bombarded with all kinds of supplement products in today’s supplement market. Trying to figure out which ones to use can become a daunting task and a very expensive experience if you chose to use many without any knowledge of what you currently need.

I have created a list of supplements that those who are athletes and fitness minded can use. It is very important to know at what stage you are currently at in terms of your bodybuilding and fitness training. The reason for this is so that you can choose those supplements that are most favorable for your current needs.

How to Prioritize Your Supplement Choices.

People often ask me about a certain supplement and look dissatisfied when they don’t get the particular answer they want to hear. There are supplements that are good for a specific application but bad for another. There are supplements which are good to take at specific times but not so effective at other times. There are supplements that should be taken all year, and of course, there are supplements that just plain suck all the time. The bottom line is there are few black and white areas in the field of nutrition supplementation and an abundance of gray areas. In an effort to clear up some of the confusion, I’d like to propose a way of viewing and organizing supplement needs.

Foundation Supplements.

Foundation supplements are those supplements you take all year round for over all health. These usually consist of essential vitamin, mineral, fatty acids and such. Essential nutrients are just that - essential to life itself. The basic definition of an essential nutrient is “any nutrient which is essential to maintain proper bodily function and which the body cannot manufacture itself and therefore must be obtained from the diet.” These supplements consist of the following:

1)Multi Vitamin – Mineral Formula
2)Vit C
3)Vit E
4)Beta Carotene
8)Flax Oil
9)Borage Oil
10)Cod Liver Oil

Performance and Health Enhancing Convenient Supplements.

The next group of supplements are those that will help you in terms of recuperation, fat burning and muscle building. These include the following:

1)Whey Protein
2)Meal replacement powders
3)Protein Bars
6)Branched Chain Amino Acids

Specific Athletic enhancing Supplements.

1)A good fat burner like Lean system 7
2)DHEA - provides support for critical hormonal production.
3)LG Sciences Methyl 1-D (A good Testosterone booster)
4)LG Sciences Formadrol Extreme XL (A Good Testosterone Booster)
5)Gaspari Novedex XT (This supplement has demonstrated an upward modulating effect on testosterone levels and a downward or static modulating effect on estrogen.
6)Vanadyl Sulfate - One of the most important aspects of muscle recovery after intense exercise is proper replenishment with micronutrients. Vanadyl Sulfate aid your natural insulin levels in moving nutrients to worked muscle cells creating a super pump and recuperation along with better utilization of creating, glutamine and amino acids.
7)Chromium Picolinate - Chromium assists the action of insulin, a hormone involved in carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism.
8)Alpha Lipoic Acid - Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the body from oxidative damage related to aging and exercise. ALA supplementation can also support glucose uptake by the body's cells.
9)LIV 52 - was introduced in 1955 as a specially formulated proprietary herbal formula for healthy liver support.
10) Milk Thistle - Silymarin/Milk Thistle Extract has been extensively researched in Europe for over 30 years. Silymarin nutritionally supports healthy liver function.
11)HGH Amino supplements (See video at http://leon-

These are the supplements all athletes should be using during the year and at certain times during their training.

Yours in health,
