The 7 Supplements You Want in Your Gym Stack
New year, new me or in many people’s cases, new gym memberships. That’s right: the first order of the year is an immediate trip to the local gym to finally run, kick, climb, and lift the holiday calories away. With the right type of diet (and a bit of calorie counting), you are guaranteed a good amount of weight loss, and so will a good exercise program.
But, some people want to get more out of their workouts and weight loss routines, and this can be achieved by taking supplements. If you think you need a boost whether for weight loss or for getting stronger each day, check out our list of the 7 must-have supplements for exercise.
1. Joint Health
The one thing you don’t want to have is an injury during a workout, and a lot of injuries stem from poor joint health. After all, just about everything we do inside a gym requires the use of joints, so it’s just a necessity to have good joint health. For this, we recommend Cartiflex, a supplement designed to improve flexibility, lubrication, and overall mobility.
Our gut is quite literally at the center of everything that makes us function, and this includes our body’s ability to store energy and metabolize it efficiently which is important for workouts. Naturally, you want the gut to be as healthy as possible, and probiotics greatly boost gut biodiversity which can lead to a much-improved overall wellness. Check out ProbioPure for maximum gut health support.
3. Inflammatory Support
Poor inflammatory response is perhaps one of, if not the, root cause of every major health concerns. On top of being just an overall bad condition (especially if it becomes chronic), inflammation can also cause us to feel sick during our gym days. Thankfully, you can use Curcumin to help your body mount a proper inflammatory response. The most bioavailable and potent form of curcumin is found in our Curcumin-SR.
Immunity is pretty much what determines how good we feel when we wake up or how bad we feel just before we go to sleep. A compromised immune system can not only make us skip leg day (or even cardio), but also force us to miss out on events and fitness contests among friends. Never miss a day at the gym with AHCC®, an immunity supplement featuring a unique mushroom ingredient!
5. Fat burners
Oligonol® is a low-molecular-weight polyphenol derived from lychee fruit and green tea. It has several anti-aging effects, including reducing wrinkles and brown spots, lessening fatigue and increasing endurance, reducing visceral (belly) fat, and supporting cardiovascular health. * Oligonol has several mechanisms of action: promoting healthy blood circulation, protecting against free radical damage, and helping the body mount a healthy response to inflammation.*
You can’t start working out if you’re too tired to begin with! This is where popular energy ingredients can help. These are your caffeine, taurine, yerba mate, theacrine, and L-carnitine, and the popular B-complex.
Nootropics are simply ingredients that specifically help the brain. From general brain health and long-term wellness to focus, memory, and other cognitive functions, nootropics pretty much boosts the way we use the body’s most complex organ.
Working out doesn’t have to be a drag. While doing the usual diet and workout will eventually get you to your target weight, why not spice things up a bit with some supplements? If you take the right supplements from the right brands, you might just get more out of your blood, sweat, and tears at the gym!
