What is the best way to get all your vitamins and minerals? A nutrient dense diet or supplementation?
Hopefully this is a no-brainer but just to be clear it’s more important to have a nutrient dense diet and use supplements to mitigate any dietary deficiencies.
When I was training for my 50-mile trail run at Bear Mountain, NY I was solely dedicated to covering mileage and eating super clean. This worked for awhile but burnout became inevitable. I cut my mileage in half during the week and looked towards taking supplements that what speed up recovery and increase focus.
I took a combination of fish oil, adaptogens and vitamin C two months prior to running the race and felt a substantial increase in aerobic capacity and motivation towards training. The most exciting part was that I became more productive at F.A.S. Training. Similar to the Energizer Bunny. To this day I still take these supplements for two months at a time with two months off.
Has shown to:
-decrease anxiety caused by daily stress and training
-prolong endurance during exercise
-decrease cortisol, a catabolic hormone that can be raised due to stress and training
-anti-oxidant, which prevents the breakdown of cells in the body
This product has a potent blend of adaptogens that enhance stamina and reduce fatigue. It contains ashwagandha, Asian ginseng, eleuthero and rhodiola which all have shown to help the body adapt to stress. This is by far my favorite mix of energy boosting supplements that help my productivity at work and aerobic capacity during training. It’s not a stimulant either so it won’t give you a crash or make you feel jittery.
Has shown to:
-decrease muscle damage and soreness from training
-decrease fatigue in conjunction with exercise
