Selecting the correct: Supplements

All-Body Supplement Information

Using the right supplements is everything. Not only do they affect our energy levels, recovery, and performance, but also our decision making. When we feel "on point", our decisions are "on point". This leads us to choosing what leads our outcomes for fitness and also is a major contributor to what we get out of it in the long run. Whether that is a championship title, a dream job, or the endurance & confidence to start a new business. We can leverage our body's abilities by supplying it with everything that it needs to grow, adapt, and conquer.

Here are some tips on selecting supplements:

  1. Quality -

    this is probably the most important considering what you are consuming is derived from many different sources and is processed to the degree that it brings the supplement into a pure form. The higher the quality, the higher probability that the ingredients are what they say they are without additives or "left-overs".

  2. Manufacturing Practices -

    the more a manufacturer of supplements is regulated by e.g. GMP, NSF, or TGA, the better quality-to-price ratio you will get. In addition, a supplement that is produced by a higher grade manufacturing process will have superior absorption qualities for the body. In essence, you pay for what you get; a poorly manufactured supplement is generally not going to help you.

  3. Research Practices -

    companies that have the access and the budget to perform regular scientific research studies on superior formulas and ingredients are generally better suited to deliver a high-performance product. Niche brands are the ones to keep away from because more so than not their only passion is for profit, and not to the bettering of athletic performance. If a company is passionate about the products they are selling, those products will generally deliver what they claim.
