I get a lot of question about supplements. People always would like to know my personal regimen, what brands I use, what I think about certain products and/or ingredients, and especially what I simply cannot live without because let's face it most of us are on a budget and cannot afford to buy everything we need when we begin a fitness regimen. Over the next week, I want to do my best to share with you the products that I feel are essential to everyone and what I think are some of the additional supplements that one can add in later as their budget allows.
No matter who you are or what your lifestyle entails taking a quality multivitamin everyday is essential. Especially if you are trying to build muscle or lose weight. There are many health issues that stem from deficiencies in micro-nutrients, and being low in them can be the reason why your not reaching your fitness goals. I use M-Factor Goddess by 1st Phorm because you can get all your micro-nutrients in M-Factor. Its a whole foods supplement and is chelated for maximum absorption. I've done this fitness thing both ways - meaning with and without supplements and because I saw the difference that incorporating a few key products into my regimen and how it increased my results. I always recommend what I find value in to my personal training clients however, I highly recommend certain brands over others. Quality over quantity is huge for me in every aspect of my life. It's not about brand recognition. It's simply about feeding my body with the best fuel out there. Yes, I am affiliated with 1st Phorm, but I started using their products and recommending them long before I represented their brand. I was lucky enough to become affiliated with them a few years ago and because of that I receive training on all of their products to increase my knowledge. Their manufacturing standards and the quality of their supplements are, by far, best in the industry and one of the best investments you can make is in quality supplements. Whatever you buy, make sure it’s made in an FDA approved lab with GMP standards and do not buy tablets! If you’re pills are not in capsule form you are wasting your money!
