How Can Supplements Help Me Reach My Goals?
If altering your body composition by gaining muscle mass and losing fat are part of your health goals then upping your protein intake is a must. Protein supplements, such as protein powders, make it easier to consume your required daily intake.
Protein is vital to muscle growth as it contains essential amino acids that work to repair and maintain muscle tissue. Their ability to help you feel fuller for longer also aids in weight loss as your appetite is reduced along with the inclination to snack.
Protein supplements are usually made using a form of whey protein which is derived from dairy, there are also some vegan protein sources made from peas.
Consumption of pre-workouts can help give you the energy to push yourself further during exercise. Containing carbohydrates, caffeine and glucose they help to raise blood sugar levels and give you an added energy boost. If you’ve been dreaming of hitting a new personal best, a great pre-workout (usually in liquid form) 30 minutes to exercise could be the answer.
What Other Health Benefits Do Supplements Offer?
Optimum nutrition can be difficult to achieve through diet alone. Supplements help to balance any deficits and give your body the vitamins, minerals, fats and proteins it needs to function at its best.
A great addition to your daily routine is a multi-vitamin supplement. While not a replacement for a healthy balanced diet, a multivitamin can support you to feel your best. They do this by delivering your body essential nutrients such as:
- Vitamin C for a healthy immune system and protection for your cells against free radicals.
- Calcium for strong bones and teeth.
- Iron for well-oxygenated cells and energy.
- Magnesium for optimal muscle and nerve function.
- Potassium for regulating your heart rate and helping the body eliminate waste.
- Thiamin and Riboflavin which help your body turn food into energy as well as supporting the body to metabolise fats and protein.
- Niacin for a healthy nervous system.
- B group vitamins B6, B12, and folate for optimal blood sugar levels, energy and healthy cells. These vitamins help prevent changes in your cell DNA that are linked to certain kinds of cancer.
- Selenium for improved cognition, immune system function, and boosted fertility.
- Zinc for a healthy brain and fast wound healing.
- Vitamins A (including beta carotene), E, and K for healthy hair, skin and tissue as well as supporting better vision.
- Vitamin D2 or D3 for healthy kidneys, bone strength and energy.
Many supplements, not just multivitamins contain added vitamins and minerals. If you are unsure about which supplements to take or combine for optimal health, speak with your doctor or our experienced team members can also make suggestions for you.
Do Protein Powders And Pre Workouts Have Side Effects?
This will very much depend on the individual. For some, milk proteins that are high in fat and lactose may cause intestinal upset and bloat. Dairy is made up of two proteins, casein and whey. Whey is what is left after processing, there are different types of whey protein that can be easier to digest than others.
Should you prefer the higher protein content of a whey-based protein over a lactose-free pea protein, the best form of whey protein is whey protein isolate (WPI). WPI has lesser lactose content, fewer carbohydrates and is higher in protein than whey concentrate.
With pre-workouts, you may feel side effects such as jitters from the caffeine, flushed skin due to the niacin content and occasionally headaches. While none of these is cause for concern, the best way to avoid them is to only ever take the recommended dose stated on the packaging.
Are Supplements Considered Safe?
Dietary supplements are widely considered safe for consumption when taken as per their included directions. There are some instances where medical advice should be sought before starting to take them, however. These instances include when you plan to take them as part of treatment for a medical condition or have an existing medical condition that you take medication for.
With the majority of vitamins and supplements considered low-risk complementary medicines, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is focused on regulating their safety and quality. All supplements sold by Supplement City are TGA approved.
