In today's blog, we'll briefly explain why adding supplements to your diet can help you achieve your fitness goals, and strength faster.
Fitness starts with healthy eating and working out. Adding vitamins and minerals to your diet to ensure your body is getting the nutrients it needs, can help you achieve your fitness goals.
Understanding what supplements you your body lacks, we need to figure out what exactly they consist of. In other words, supplements are used to manage nutritional deficiencies, remaining focused on balanced diet, rather than hard-to-pronounce ingredients.
According to Dr. Paul Macnamara, Consultant – Orthopedic Surgeon, Medcare Orthopaedics & Spine Hospital, SZR. "Supplements can work, but where and when is indicated by the name itself – to ‘supplement’ and add to your existing diet and training regime[.]"
Supplements should offer support for something that is lacking in your diet but not replace it. Here are some of the most common supplement people add to their diet/routine:
Whey/Isolate Protein - helps improve muscle protein synthesis and promote the growth of lean muscle mass.
Creatine - helps to maintain a continuous supply of energy, regenerates muscle cells.
BCAAs - Branched chain amino acids can help you.
Fish Oil - provides the omega three fatty acids that help burn.
