Over the past few weeks, we have talked about the importance of eating well
to ensure success on your summer shape up. But let’s not forget another key component that happens to be near and dear to our hearts: vitamins and supplements!
Fuel your body with the nutrients you need, not just to get through the day, but to help you
look and feel great! Vitamins and nutrients are the building blocks our bodies need to reach optimal health. Our bodies use them to support everyday functions, from energy supply to immune protection, and with the increasing toxin load in our environment, the need is even more urgent. While foods are supposed to supply sufficient nutrition for our bodies, the vitamin content in our food has decreased so dramatically over the past several decades that it is virtually impossible to reach optimal levels without supplementation.
To create your ideal supplement regimen, start by building the right foundation, and then branch out according to your personal needs. Just remember your ABC’s!
A is for ALL-AROUND
: The first step in putting together a vitamin regimen is to start with a great foundational product. At a minimum, we recommend a high quality multivitamin
and fish oil taken daily, which will help to provide the basic nutrients your body needs, as well as detoxify what it doesn’t. For a more comprehensive solution, a vitamin pack like Dr. Hotze’s PowerPak
offers your multivitamin and fish oil, as well as vitamin C, l-carnitine and a powerful antioxidant blend.
B is for BODY
: Even with best diet and exercise plan, sometimes you need a little boost. Supplements to promote fat burning
and curb cravings can give you the extra lift you need to take your efforts to the next level.
C is for COMFORT
: It is a well known fact that exercise does great things for the body. Unfortunately, it can also lead to wear and tear on your joints, making it that much more important to support them through proper attire, such as a good pair of shoes, as well as proper supplementation. If your exercise plan is getting the best of your joints, a joint supplement
may be just what you need to get moving again.
