SO WHY TAKE SUPPLEMENTS?

SO WHY TAKE SUPPLEMENTS?

August 21, 2017

We need essential vitamins and minerals to grow, heal and repair the body’s cells, organs, systems and skeleton. Today, there are more reasons than ever to consider a supplement program to acquire the nutrients which your body needs. Here, we explain why…

We’ve all read the standard familiar line that most vitamins and minerals ‘should be acquired from a healthy, balanced diet’. In reality, the landscape on this has changed. 

Many of today’s commercial agriculture methods can sap the soil of important minerals which, in turn, are lacking in the foods we eat. These same foods are sometimes shipped for long periods of time, again depleting vital vitamin content such as the important B-complex and C vitamins.

To add to this, increased levels of environmental pollution in our air, water and food quality may cause our bodies to use more nutrients than usual to detox and rid our systems of harmful substances. This is especially true of the antioxidant ‘ACE’ vitamins.         

BRAIN FIT

Many supplements such as B-complex vitamins, vitamin C and the minerals calcium, zinc and magnesium all support brain function, helping to keep us energized and functioning properly. Crucial for energy production, magnesium aids normal nerve and muscle function and mood boosting thiamine (formerly known as vitamin B1) plays an important role in maintaining a positive mental attitude to enhance learning abilities and combat stress.     

FAT BURNER

Often described as ‘the fat which makes you thin’ CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) is a fatty acid supplement derived from Linoleic Acid, a polyunsaturated Omega-6 fatty considered essential for human health. Although much Omega-6 can be found in meat and dairy products, those changes in the eating habits of cattle could potentially impact on how much CLA we’re consuming through diet alone. The most popular way and convenient source of CLA is to supplement with CLA soft gel capsules to increase intake where needed.

MUSCLE MAINTAINANCE

Studies have shown CLA can offer extremely effective fat burning properties. Unlike a low-calorie diet alone it will allow for a significant weight loss, while at the same time maintaining or even increasing muscle mass, making it a popular choice as a supplement for bodybuilders pre-contest. In addition to improving physique, CLA also works as a powerful antioxidant which can help boost the immune system and regulate blood sugars.
