Supplementation - Why Supplement?

We all can be in agreement with the fact that the body needs vitamins and minerals and other key nutrients to have optimal health. Although, many of you may be dismissing supplementation because you think you are getting the nutrients from the foods that you eat. Don't kid yourself! Most people are not eating the variety of nutritious foods my eating, We would not get all the nutrients we need if we did not supplement. Here's why you need to supplement:

1. Tend to eat the same foods (not enough variety)
2. Not buying foods that you know are fresh
3. Over cooking of your foods
4. Don't have the time to eat proper meals because of life
5. Don't know where the foods were grown, potency of nutrients, dead soil, quality of processing, and many other factors.

In fact, we have not met anyone in our 20 years of personal training that did not need to supplement their diets. All benefited tremendously by doing so. Supplementation is insurance. Yes, we all want to eat the best we can and include an assortment of grains, fruits, and vegetables in our diets, but rarely do we. Do not risk setting your self up for mediocre health, physical ailments, and disease. If you are serious about your health and getting fit, you must take a quality multi-vitamin & mineral supplement along with antioxidants ---period!!

It's really a no-brainer! The body needs key essential vitamins and minerals. If we are not consistently eating the right foods to provide them, then we must supplement or you will have poor health. I have yet to meet a person that did not have a need for supplementation in their diet.

Supplementation - Natural vs. Synthetic 

There are many nutrients in plants beyond vitamins and minerals that are vital to a healthy diet. Science has discovered hundreds of these nutrients referred to as phytonutrients. They are discovering new ones all the time. Synthetic supplements do not have any phytonutients in them. In our opinion it is just senseless to take a synthetic vitamin that will not provide you with all nutrients that are essential for optimal health. Phytonutrients are only found in plant-based products. This is why we developed our Men & Women Prostyle Formulas. You will not find a better more complete organic supplement anywhere!

Supplementation - ANTIOXIDANTS

Antioxidants fight free radicals. Free radicals are a by-product that is released from our cells. All of us have cells in our body, so therefore we all have free radicals in our body. Stress, exercise, pollution, and smoking make the cells work harder and produce free radicals. Free radicals are also called oxidants. These oxidants, or free radicals, can help harden your arteries, damage your skin, and greatly increase your chance of a heart attack and stroke. This is why we need antioxidants in our diet to attack these free radicals. Antioxidants are found in many of the foods we eat, but again most are not eating the varieties and amounts needed to supply you with the required antioxidants. You will find these in our Men & Women Formulas.


Supplementation - Herbs!

Herbal supplementation is a market that is growing tremendously in the last few years. Herbs can be very helpful for many people and some herbs can cause negative side effects in the body. Even though no herbal medicine is safe under every condition for every person, herbs are far safer than pharmaceutical drugs. Even common, over the counter medicines can be unsafe.Aspirin can cause bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract and is harmful to your liver. Education is essential when supplementing with herbs. The botanical and herbal extracts in our Men & Women Formulas are the best nature has to offer. There is no second best, as we are in a class by ourselves with these products.

Supplementation - Omega-3 fatty acids

Read this! It applies to you. Omega-3 fatty acids are good fats the human body requires for optimal function of the cells. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for normal health and development. Without them your cells cannot function, renew and maintain themselves properly. Omega-3s promote heart health, increase memory, they are crucial for learning ability, and they help brain and vision development of infants and promote natural joint flexibility and mobility.

Obviously, you are concerned about your health as well as your family's health so you will want to learn more about omega-3s. Many countries have set recommended daily allowances for omega-3s, but there are none in the U.S. yet. In my opinion, with all of the overwhelming research indicating that omega-3 fatty acid deficiencies can be detrimental to a persons health, the U.S. will set recommended daily allowances in the very near future.

Do not dismiss the importance of omega 3's! I'm telling you when you read up on them it will blow your mind on how they can have a significant impact on our health. Here are a few facts to motivate you to research further:·

  • A diet rich in omega-3 nutrients has been shown to contribute to a 50% reduction in the risk of death from heart disease.
  • People with the right amount of omega-3s in their diet lower risk of death from all causes by 27%.
  • Omega 3s may help prevent and possibly treat Alzheimer's disease.
  • Infants need omega fatty acids to ensure that their nervous systems, immune systems, and vision develop properly.
  • Your body uses essential fatty acids to lubricate the skin and tissues.
  • The bodies cells depend on omega 3 fatty acids to function normally, a deficiency can lead to hair loss, dry skin (hello wrinkles!), skin rashes, constantly feeling cold, easy bruising, joint inflammation and repeated infections due to weakened cell membranes.
  • Research shows that a deficiency in fatty acids may increase your risk of developing a mood disorder, such as depression or anxiety.

Don't use money as an excuse not to supplement. Be honest with yourself you will take that same money that can provide you with optimal health and spend it on junk food, pop, cigarettes, nails, hair, cable, and entertainment. I'm sure you will agree we could go on and on with things we spend money on that should not be a higher priority than our health! In the long run you will spend more money on doctors, prescriptions and time off work than you ever would on essential supplementation of your diet. Putting money aside for a moment, the greatest loss you will have will be living a life with mediocre health and possibly ailments and disease.

Doe's it sound like we're trying to sell you vitamins? We're not. We just know from working with so many people through out the years that nobody that we have ever met or worked with is supplying their bodies with all the essential nutrients the body requires for normal health. This includes ourselves. Most of us at least need to supplement with a quality vitamin and mineral, antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids.
