Facilitate Your Goals through Supplementation
Diet is the most important component of fitness, but supplements can help give that extra boost and aid in expediting one's goals.

Multi-Vitamin: Most people do not consume enough vegetables and legumes, so a properly-dosed multi-vitamin is an excellent means of supplementation.
Post-Workout Whey Protein Isolate: A rapid-assimilating protein is needed to flood the muscles with amino acids for recovery in order to ensure muscle-protein synthesis, i.e. building muscle. Other protein sources do not absorb as quickly as a hydrolyzed whey protein isolate.
Post-Workout Glucose: This should be paired with a post-workout protein to replenish energy stores and greatly improve muscle-protein synthesis.
Sustained-Assimilating Protein: This protein supplement is a matrix of both fast- and slow-absorbing proteins and a great meal replacement for on-the-go.
Fish Oil: Most Westerners have diets low in fish, leading to an Omega-3 fatty acids deficiency. Omega-3 fatty acids lower blood pressure, reduce "bad" cholesterol (LDL) and increase "good" cholesterol (HDL). Fish oil also improves brain function and greatly reduces inflammation.
Creatine helps muscles draw water from the body, thereby increasing muscular strength and endurance.
BCAAs: Branched-chain amino acids keep the body in an anabolic state (muscle growth), versus catabolic (muscle breakdown). The 3 critical components to BCAAs are leucine, isoleucine and valine, which stimulate the body into anabolism. Drink these over the course of a day or when you cannot readily access a meal or protein shake.
Premium Greens & Superfoods: At least 3 servings of vegetables are recommended per day, which is time-consuming and not very palatable. This premium greens supplement includes botanical superfoods, organic grasses, digestive enzymes and probiotics. With just a couple scoops, you can hit your daily vegetable targets in just one glass of water.
