In an ideal world
In an ideal world there would be no need for supplements at all for any of us. Everyone would get all the nutrients and energy they needed from their food.
We don’t live in an ideal world though do we. Even when we try our very best to eat and drink well and get the right amount of sleep and exercise, our bodies can still feel as if they are lacking something.
Forgetting to fuel
Modern lives are busy and often a little frantic. We rush from commitment to commitment and often forget to fuel our bodies in between. This can leave us tired, lacking energy and enthusiasm and more prone to that grab and dash type approach.
Anyone guilty of that? “I don’t have time” is something we all use a lot to justify some of the choices we make along the way. When really it is as easy to grab a banana or apple as it is to pick up a packet of crisps or a chocolate bar.
Filling the gap
Carefully selected supplements can fill that gap and act as a bit of an insurance for the days when things don’t quite go to plan. They can ensure we still get the nutrients we need, everyday, not just some days, the ‘good’ days.
If you are a fan of smoothies and juice mixing then adding powdered greens can be a great way of ensuring you get important nutrients into you body that can benefit overall health and well-being, give you mental clarity, boost immunity and detoxify the body.
You might want to take a good multi vitamin to help you keep in tip top shape, and if you have problems with joints or muscles that are an issue when exercising you might want to look into specific supplements that can help those issues.
If it is specifically sports nutrition you are needing you might want to look at Discount Supplements powders’. They offer free delivery and same day dispatch and I think you’ll find their prices really impressive.
Also if chocolate is your vice, you’ll be pleased to see your favourite chocolate bars in the form of a protein bar! That’s right, just take a look at these below.
If you are doing a lot of sports you might want to try these as a post-workout protein boost. The Bounty bar was seen in Total Women Cycling and has been a hit with fitness fans and chocoholics alike.
Make sure you don’t confuse these for pre-workout energy bars as they may sit a little heavy, instead have them as a post-workout boost. Very handy to slip into a gym bag, rucksack etc when you are out and about.
What is your approach to fitness and nutrition supplements? Do you use them? What about regular day-to-day supplements?
