Choosing the Best Dietary Supplements

0 60

Trying to get your body in shape is a difficult and demanding task. It takes willpower, time, effort and dedication to achieve the goals you set for yourself. Sure, you’re surrounded by ads and photos of people making it look easy. But you and I both know it’s not easy. So everyone needs a little extra help and push.

Okay, let’s rephrase that. What we really want is a magical overnight fix to a problem that took years of bad habits to create. Unfortunately, the truth is that there are no quick fixes overnight. You might think you’ve found just that, a magic little pill that pretends to melt away fat and advertises that you can eat whatever you want and still lose weight.

Honestly, you should read the fine print. In a tiny, barely legible print at the end of the ad, you see something like results that are not typical without diet and exercise. That means you need to eat healthy and exercise! In addition, the supplements may not bring you anything on your way to success. The dietary supplement industry is not regulated like the pharmaceutical industry. So if a product makes a claim that seems too good to be true, it probably is. Manufacturers and resellers of dietary supplements can tell you almost anything they want about the product, true or not; as long as they do not claim that the supplement can cure a disease or treat a medical condition.

Don’t despair; You are not out of options. There are several things you can do to increase the positive results of exercise and healthy eating. But you need to eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly. The longer you stick with it, the easier it becomes. Remember, anything worth having is worth paying a price for.

  1. Multivitamins: Consider adding an inexpensive over-the-counter multivitamin to your daily routine. They can be very helpful when you’re not regularly getting the micronutrients you need through your diet, as most people aren’t.

  2. Omega Fatty Acids: Although these fatty acids are essential for your body, your body does not produce them. You need to make sure you are consuming foods that contain these omega essential fatty acids. Foods rich in omega fatty acids are fish, nuts and seeds. You can also find a supplement at the health food store or pharmacy that will provide it for you. Omega fatty acid benefits include reduced body fat, reduced cholesterol and lower blood pressure.

  3. Protein Supplements: The most commonly used supplement of this type is whey protein. You can use it as a dietary supplement when real food isn’t an option, or in addition to your meals when you’re training really hard. Whey protein helps your body recover well from a workout, especially one that involves heavy lifting.

4. Creatine: This powerful nutritional supplement is most commonly used by bodybuilders and serious athletes. Your body produces creatine naturally, but in limited amounts. Consider adding creatine to support muscle contractions during very strenuous exercise.
