Supplements

Getting started with a work-out is hard enough as it is.  You have to make time, conjure up a high amount of energy, and know how to feed your muscles throughout the day so you actually see results.  Therefore, supplements, even though not COMPLETELY necessary, are a really good thing to include EVERYDAY.

I’m gonna give you a list of supplements that I feel are most important and work the best when working-out and when morphing over to a healthier lifestyle.  Take a gander at them and see which ones you like the most!

(1) Omega-3 / Fish Oil omega3

This supplement is SUPER important for just everyday life, and I suggest you take this every single day you wake up.

What it is: Omega-3 is a fatty acid found in foods like walnuts, some fruits and vegetables, and especially coldwater fish (herring, mackerel, sturgeon, and anchovies)

Benefits: According to Laurie Tansman, a nutritionist at NY’s Mount Sinai Medical Center,

“[Fish oil] not only plays a vital role in the health of the membrane of every cell in our body, it also helps protect us from a number of key health threats.”

It also reduces the risk of… (1) heart disease

(2) strokes

(3) symptoms of hypertension

(4) depression

(5) attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

(6) joint pain and other rheumatoid problems

(7) certain skin ailments

Omega-3’s can also boost the immune system and help protect us from an array of illnesses including Alzheimer’s disease.

What form(s) it comes in: soft-gel capsule, soft chews, and liquid formula

When you should take it: EVERYDAY!!

(2) Multivitamin

A multivitamin is SUPER important if you’re not eating a balanced diet.  I suggest that you definitely consider taking a multivitamin every single day… you’ll feel a lot better!!

What it is: Basically, a multivitamin is a must if you aren’t eating a balanced diet.  A multivitamin is packed with nutrients you need every day that you may be missing if you aren’t eating the right amounts of whole grains, vegetables, fruits, protein, dairy, etc.

Benefits: provides you with essential vitamins you should have EVERYDAY.

What form(s) it comes in: Vitapaks, chewables, capsules, and formulas

When you should take it: EVERY DAY!!

(3) Protein (whey, soy, probolic)

This is very important for building and maintaining the muscle you work so hard to strengthen.  I absolutely think you should use this. I personally use probolic because it has low calories a S-LOAD of amino acids, and actually works!!!

What it is: Whey protein- the protein contained in whey, the watery portion of milk that separates from the curds when making cheese.

Soy protein- protein contained in soy beans and contains estrogen.

Probolic protein- protein enhanced with amino-acids

Benefits: whey protein- supports lean muscle development

soy protein- contains all essential amino acids, reduces cholesterol levels/heart disease, a high quality protein, supports lean muscle development

probolic protein- supplies the body with essential amino acids for an extended period of time (12hours), supplies nitrogen to the muscles to support muscle development, supports lean muscle development

What form(s) it comes in: whey protein- powder, meal replacement bars

soy protein- powder, soybeans, meal replacement bars

probolic protein- powder, meal replacement bars

When you should take it: after a resistance work-out to help support muscle recovery and development (it is not necessary for after cardio), as a meal replacement

(4) b-12 vitamin

b12

This supplement is very good for producing natural energy without caffeine.  USE IT!!!

What it is: Produces energy and raises your metabolic rate. In general, you need vitamin-B to create blood cells and to have a healthy nervous system.

Benefits: creates red blood cells and therefore prevent anemia (lack of red blood cells), produces natural energy to motivate you to work out!

What form(s) it comes in: tablets

When you should take it: EVERYDAY!

(5) CLA

I’m on the fence about this stuff because it works for some but not for others. Try it out and see if it works for you.

cla

What it is: a naturally occurring fatty acid that is found in meat and dairy products

Benefits: reduce body fat/supports fat burning, prevents cancerous cells from developing,

What form(s) it comes in: capsules

When you should take it: take 1-2 before every large meal

  1. HEY DUDE!!!!
    Since you’re the expert meathead I have a question for your blackass! I saw some commercial for a type of supplement that you can add to your water while you work out, and it makes your water DELICIOUS plus supports weight loss + other healthy shit. Forgot what it was called. But do you know about anything like this, and what would you recommend? I’ll buy an S-load. I love delicious shit that’s good for a bitch.

  2. Hey Raq!! I THINK you’re talking about Myoplex shakes made my EAS? Maybe… those are pre-made drink and I’ve been seeing those commercials recently so I think that may be it…

    I have a feeling this product is BULLSHIT. I personally don’t agree with taking supplements while you work out. It just doesn’t make sense to me.. but that’s just ME.

    ALSO, you need to look at the amount of carbs that are in the drink. If its high, fuck it. If its low in carbs but high in protein and electrolytes, then that’s good! But honestly, a lot of those “man-made” things are crap.

    I took Hydroxycut Hardcore and Lipo 6 for 5 months and it did NOTHING. Seriously. I even got fat while on them. They are just packed with fillers and caffeine to make you feel like there are millions of ethnic dancers inside of you when really, its just your heart exploding… and not in a good way.

    So, I suggest that you look at the carb and protein amount, but then seriously consider the supplements I talked about! They are pretty essential and all natural!!

    Let me know your thoughts!
