We could all probably do with a little help in achieving our goals and there’s no time like the present to get started. With that in mind, here’s a selection of some of the different health foods and supplements we carry and what to eat to help you achieve your aims.
If you aren’t getting the nutrition you need from your daily calorific intake, vitamins are the perfect way to temporarily fill the void. Additional vitamins are also especially useful for pregnant women as their bodies require more nutrition thanks to the miniature person that’s growing within. Look for vitamin supplements that are high in folic acid, iron and calcium, all essential for children growing in the womb. For most people a vitamin supplement is the perfect way to bolster a healthy lifestyle and help them achieve their goals.
Fish Oils & Essential Fatty Acids
Don’t let the term fatty put you off, Fish Oils & Essential Fatty Acids are required by every healthy person to function properly and a fish oil supplement is one of the best ways to get them. Essential fatty acids cannot be synthesized by the human body but are vital for the normal function of your metabolism, making these supplements extremely useful. Fish Oils are also hugely important for higher brain functions, so get your thinking cap on, and pick up some of these excellent supplements.
Protein Powder, Creatine and Bodybuilding
Deciding to embark on a weightlifting program can be a little daunting. There’s so much to learn and educate yourself on and that’s just at the gym. Nutrition is absolutely vital to helping you achieve your mass gaining aims and one of the best ways to help yourself is by using Protein Powder and Creatine. Protein is what helps our muscles to repair themselves and grow bigger from weight training, so boosting your protein intake is recommended. Most people tend to gravitate towards Whey Protein as it releases quickly to muscles and is perfect for post-workout use. Other types of Protein available include Soy Protein (perfect for lactose intolerant people) and Casein Protein (which works slightly slower, making it perfect for just before bed).
Scientific studies have shown Creatine use can increase maximum power and performance in high-intensity weightlifting by 5-15%, making it the perfect companion to a resistance training program. Creatine use is not considered doping in any sport, so if you take part competitively you can do so without fear.
