Supplements... Should I


be Taking Them?

Supplements - Should I Be Taking Them scr1.jpg

If you are looking for a way to build muscle fast, there are plenty of supplements on the market today that promise to do just that for you. But, how many of those claims are true that you need supplements to be able to reach the goals you have with muscle gain? Will supplements really work for you to give you the body you always wanted?

The truth is that if you are getting enough protein in your diet, you don’t really need supplements. There are a number of foods that are excellent for building muscle because they are high in easily-digestible protein and contain healthy fats as well as other important nutrients that will help your body build muscle fast.

Some of the best foods for muscle building include milk, eggs, chicken, lean ground beef, almonds, and fish. As long as you include plenty of these in your diet, then you shouldn’t have to worry about supplements. A great way to make sure that you’re getting enough protein every day is to track your diet with a fitness app.

For people that are concerned about not getting enough protein, then a protein supplement may help them get what they need to build their muscle. When looking for a protein supplement, it’s important to make sure you’re getting a high-quality supplement that contains an all-natural protein source and comes from a reputable company.

Finding a great supplement is important because most of these supplements are not regulated by the FDA. That means that literally anybody could encapsulate some ingredients, put a label on it, and sell it for however much they want. Their product wouldn’t have to be verified or tested by any government testing agency which means there’s no guarantee of quality.

In addition to protein supplements, there are other supplements on the market that may or may not help you gain muscle. These supplements include various vitamins and minerals that help promote muscle growth in your body. Like protein, you can get what you need from food, but if you are worried you’re not getting enough in your diet, you can supplement.

Calcium is something that many people are not getting enough of, and although it’s mostly thought of as a bone-building mineral, it’s also used in muscle function. If you’re not getting enough calcium, then you’ll have a hard time contracting your muscles during workouts and will also suffer during recovery, so make sure you’re eating plenty of broccoli or else take a calcium supplement.

Iron is another essential mineral that your body uses for muscle function and growth. It also ensures that you’ll have enough energy for your workouts. While it can be found in things like beans and red meat, you may also want to add an iron supplement if you don’t feel like you’re getting enough iron in your diet.

Bottom Line

At the end of the day, you need to decide for yourself if supplements will help you build muscle. While some people can get all they need from their diet, others may benefit from taking some supplements, whether it’s a protein supplement or a vitamin or mineral supplement.

Wasting Your Money On


Protein Supplements?

1 bio e-article scr1.jpg

Is your body making the most of all the protein you’re consuming?

Let’s face it: No protein, no growth.  And we’ve all been bombarded with the latest trends in protein powders, weight gainers, lean gainers, combined protein, plant protein, whey, and egg etc…

…and the list goes on and on.  But one of the harsh realities I’ve learned from peak performance expert Wade Lightheart is this:

Most of the protein individuals consume ends up in one of two places.

One is your toilet bowl.  Make sure you are ABSORBING the foods you eat, ok?  Protein isn’t cheap whether it’s coming from food or shakes.

And the second place is in a nice layer of sludge somewhere in your digestive tract.  And that all adds up to one GIANT-SIZED WASTE OF MONEY AND EFFORT from all the food you’re eating — especially if you’re taking protein supplements.

You’re absorbing and using only a tiny fraction of the nutrients you’re taking in.

So what’s going on here? And what’s the solution?  Fact is, our bodies require ENZYMES to perform at their best.

And without getting too complicated, enzymes are THE WORKERS in our bodies. (In many ways, they’re the “holy grail” of health).

EVERY function in your body requires enzymes

Enzymes digest your food, stimulate your brain, provide cellular energy, and repair all the cells, tissues and organs of your body.  Enzymes are the sparks that make everything happen.

AND HERE’S THE BAD NEWS: Our bodies have a LIMITED enzyme-producing capacity, which naturally declines as we age. (In fact, most individuals have only 30 percent of their enzyme potential by the time they are 40 years old!).

Your body naturally produces over 3,000 different types of enzymes, yet our ONLY external source of enzymes comes from THE FOOD WE EAT.  Digestive enzymes are found naturally in ALL food, whether it’s fruits, vegetables, or meats.

However, most of the food we consume in our modern diets is completely devoid of enzymes, because of how we grow, prepare and transport it.  And research demonstrates that ANY FOOD HEATED ABOVE 114 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT LOSES ALL OF ITS ENZYMES.

1 bio e-article scr2.jpg

ANY FOOD HEATED ABOVE 114 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT LOSES ALL OF ITS ENZYMES

And that’s pretty shocking and scary when you think about it.  In other words, all cooked food is deficient in digestive enzymes, leaving very little to break down your food.

This means most of us are UNABLE to effectively digest the protein we eat.

And that’s pretty shocking and scary when you think about it.

But don’t be too alarmed, because some very bright scientist brains have thankfully figured out a solution:

SUPPLEMENT YOUR DIET WITH HIGH QUALITY DIGESTIVE ENZYMES.

You see, it turns out that enzymes are perhaps the most overlooked component of digestive health.

Not only are digestive enzymes required for the breakdown and digestion of food. But their benefits extend well beyond that too…

World-renowned colon expert Dr. Hiromi Shinya suggests in his book “The Enzyme Factor”, that undigested protein — particularly from milk products, fast food and red meat — can become ‘food’ for “bad” bacteria.

And these bad bacteria create all kinds of toxins that leak into the blood stream.

Meanwhile Dr. Edward Howell, author of “Enzyme Nutrition”, has demonstrated conclusively that using digestive enzymes can improve digestion, regulate weight, and ease the symptoms of a variety of health conditions.

BUT QUALITY IS KEY.

If you take a look around, you’ll find a whole bunch of enzyme formulations being sold in the market. But they’re certainly not all created equal — especially when it comes to the enzyme that digests protein: PROTEASE.

And there’s a big reason of this…

Protease is the most expensive of the enzymes to make.

And there are several kinds of protease enzymes.

And while most formulations have high levels of amylase (digests carbohydrates), or lipase (digests fats), the protease (digests protein) tends to be LOW QUALITY and in low amounts with most formulations.

That’s why speaking to peak performance expert Wade Lightheart has been like a breath of fresh air.

He was disappointed with the low protease levels of most enzyme formulations. So he decided to create his own high-protease digestive enzyme formula instead, using only the highest quality ingredients.

And it’s called MASSZYMES ==> Masszymes digestive enzymes

Wade assures us this is the most powerful protease supplement on the market.

(The formulation team who assisted him in designing these enzymes told him they have NEVER created a more potent enzyme combination. And you can check out a great comparison chart on that page I’ve linked to, showing the enzyme quantities in Masszymes compared to other formulas).
