HGH Supplements

The truth behind these supplements are that they simply don’t work, or just do a little of what they advertise. I truly don’t believe in taking these supplements because they are not natural. HGH is a very good substance and it can do lots and lots of positive things in your body, but i only like to have HGH if my body produces it itself. If you want to experiment and spend a small fortune then go ahead. But in the long run you are going to realize that the best way to go is the natural way. HGH supplements are in my opinion scams. If you want to produce natural Human Growth Hormone, then do exercise. Not only are you going to look better, but you are going to feel like a million bucks.

When you do lots of exercise your body producers more HGH levels and you save …

Digestive Enzymes Prevent A Volcanic Stomach

Digestive enzymes are responsible for breaking down the food that you eat, preparing it for assimilation, which takes place mostly in the small intestines once it leaves the stomach. By taking enzymes, not only will you avoid the rock piles and volcanic stomach, you will feel more energized. Why? Your food is actually being broken down and used by the body. It is these nutrients that are properly assimilated into the cells through the blood stream that supply the body energy.

All enzymes are divided into three groups: metabolic enzymes, which run you body, digestive enzymes, which digest foods and food enzymes, which are contained naturally in raw foods that start food digestion. The more food enzymes you ingest, the less your body has to borrow from its natural metabolic and digestive enzymes to digest food.

Each whole food has it own set of food enzymes that aid in ripening …

Antiaging Supplements

Vitamin E is widely known as an antiaging supplement and can be taken in pill or capsule form. It is also a key ingredient in many antiaging creams and lotions. As an antioxidant, Vitamin E helps combat free radicals, which work to damage your body’s cells. Vitamin E also acts as a moisturizer, tightening and restoring resilience in the skin. You can increase your body’s Vitamin E intake by eating dark leafy green vegetables, grains, seeds and nuts.

Another important antioxidant and antiaging supplement is Vitamin C. In addition to helping your body fight those nasty free radicals, it also helps to keep your skin cells rejuvenated. Vitamin C is found in high amounts in fruits and vegetables such as papayas, pineapples, cantaloupes, tomatoes, green peppers, and citrus fruits.

Recently there has been a greater awareness of the benefits of green tea as an antiaging supplement. Like vitamins C and …

Secrets to Vitamin Swallowing

Due to this very reason, a great many people simply don’t bother to frequently take important nutrients such as Vitamin C and Vitamin B12, among other highly beneficial vitamins, minerals, and supplements. Difficulty swallowing has truly become one of the age-old dilemmas surrounding vitamins and supplements.

It is a simple fact of life that some people will have more trouble swallowing than others, but it’s very important to keep in mind the many health benefits of taking vitamins on a regular basis. Fortunately, with a little bit of creativity, it is usually not all that difficult to avoid even the most painful of swallowing difficulties.

One method of making pills go down more easily is to take them along with a spoonful of yogurt, apple sauce, or any similar substance. This can definitely make things substantially less troublesome.

If all else fails, you may wish to grind the pill into …

Muscle Building Supplements

Unfortunately we all look for the easy way to help us build the body we dream of.
Some go beyond supplements and on to steroids. The bodybuilding magazines encourage us to buy these wonderful muscle building supplements. The latest ‘Mr. Whatever’ assures us that he used them to build his fantastic physique. The magazines are full of ads to seduce us into buying these ‘wonderful aids’… but how many really work and how many can actually cause us harm. Remember the magazines make money by selling advertising…it is in their interest for you to spend your money on so called muscle building supplements.

The views of many experts vary considerably. Some of course have vested interests in such products.
The more honest of them will tell you that very few body building supplements actually do what they claim. Sometimes you need to take huge amounts to show any improvement at …

Folic Acid

First of all, before we go into the folic acid facts, let’s find out what folic acid is. Folic acid is one of your B vitamins – Vitamin B9 to be exact. Folic Acid is a water soluble vitamin as opposed to a fat soluble vitamin. That means that folic acid is not stored by your body.

Folic acid is oftentimes used interchangeably with the word folate (remember this when looking at some of the studies below). Folate is the form of this vitamin found in foods such as leafy green vegetables. Folate is also found in citrus fruits and legumes such as beans.

Folic Acid is the more stable form of Vitamin B9 than is folate. Folic acid is not found naturally in foods and is the form of the vitamin found in supplements. In 1998, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration mandated the enrichment of grain products such …

Dieting, Exercise and Supplements

With all this industry growth and all the reputable brands releasing new products, how can you really be sure what works and what doesn’t? I have spent a fair amount of time personally at the gym, pumping iron and pressing weights. I have spent countless hours training, exercising, trying new routines and learning many new workouts. During this time, I have also tried a variety of different supplements both for diet and also for training purposes.

When it comes to picking a solid pre-workout there have been many that have definitely held their ground. (Of course, any supplements mentioned are personal preference and may affect individuals differently) I am one who you could say loves caffeine. I drink about 3 cups of coffee a day starting at “double-shot” on the strength level and progressively work downward. When I am looking for a good pre-workout, one of the things I look …

Liquid Multi Vitamins

Multivitamins are one of the most important single supplements that can be consumed not just by bodybuilders and athletes but also by people who suffer from deficiencies of various vitamins.

For the human body to perform at its maximum potential, it must be fed with a vast and complex array of vital nutrients and vitamins like vitamin A, vitamin B, Vitamin K among other important vitamins. Becoming deficient in just one of the essential vitamins breaks down the metabolic pathway, that produces optimum efficiency as a result performance declines. Thus daily consumption of a high-potency multivitamin helps in ensuring the presence of essential cofactors necessary for thousands of metabolic reactions which otherwise due to deficiencies can cause impairments to many of the enzymatic processes that take place in the human body.

Vitamins are naturally occurring substances that are found in the normal diet of people but due to the popularity …
