Advantages of Nitric Oxide Supplements #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

Let’s start with, What is Nitric Oxide?

Nitric Oxide is a gas that is produced naturally in your body. Some call it the next Creatine. “To make nitric oxide, enzymes in the body break down the amino acid, arginine,” explains registered dietitian and American Dietetic Association spokesperson Jim White.

There are many benefits to adding Nitric Oxide Supplements to you daily regimen. Nitric Oxide is known for boosting cardiovascular health. It plays a key role in regulating your organs such as heart, liver, lungs, brain, ect. It also aids in circulating your blood.

With the increased blood flow your nutrients are rushed to your muscles, so you also get an increase of adrenaline, hormones, growth, and recovery times. I personally use several Nitric Oxide boosting supplements and can definitely see a difference in my performance, recovery, and growth in this off season!

The benefits don’t stop there! Nitric Oxide significantly increases learning and memory tasks, bone remodeling and healing, as well as reduction in joint pain.

Saturn Supplements has a huge line of Nitric Oxide products!!! Here is a list of my favorites 😉

SBSC Fit Tips: Muscle Building Swole Stack @SaturnMuscle #BuiltBySaturnSupplements

I get so many messages about what supplements I take, why I take them, and when do I take them. Here is my Muscle Building Swole Stack 😉 *All opinions of the products are honest and my own*

PicsArt_1406130696071-1

I start every morning with my One Source Multivitamins

You cannot always be sure of getting all the nutrients you need from food, and Saturn’s One-Source Pack is designed to enrich your body with a complete dietary supplement perfect for everyday taking.

I have been telling you all the multi benefits of this supplements for a few weeks now. I still feel the same about them! I absolutely love them and do feel that I am benefiting greatly!

Benefits listed on Bodybuilding.com

“It’s produced by the anterior pituitary gland under the stimulation of the Hypothalamus (like LH, the testosterone precursor). The effects on our system are tremendous:

  • HGH promotes and increases the synthesis of new protein tissues, such as in muscle recovery or repair. This is the way new muscle is built.

  • Recent research suggests its involvement in the metabolism of body-fat and its conversion to energy sources. Tests were conducted in obese people and medical use in treating obesity was proven beyond a doubt. Pro’s have used GH as a way of maintaining and increasing lean mass while dieting for years.

  • It improves the sleeping pattern, makes for less unintended awakenings and betters REM-stage sleep.

  • HGH produces more energy

  • It may improve sexual performance

  • It builds stronger bones

  • Improves the quality and duration of heart and kidneys”

Back to my morning regimen 😉

I leave shortly after breakfast for the gym, so when I take my vitamins, I am also chugging my first 24 ounces of water. In that first 24 ounces, you will find a scoop of my favorite pre-workout PUMPD’4 Performance

PUPMD’4 is the most extreme Pre-Workout formula available. Powered by a proven source of pump-force agents. PUMPD’4 provides the body with a surge of energizing fuel. Each serving contains the perfect ratio of Agmatine Sulfate, Nitric Oxide, L-Citrulline and L-Taurine, and also combined with Caffeine and other energy-actives.

I was so excited for the release of this formula! I LOVE it!!! It revs me up first thing in the morning. Gives me a great pump and NO jitters. That is probably one of the first questions I get about this product. I do not get jittery at all.

Now to go along with my Pre-Workout I make what I call my Training Power Punch. I always take an extra 24 ounce bottle with me to train. It is filled with the best muscle pumping, hydrating, amino acid supplements on the market!!!

I have tried each one of these supplements separately. I have been taking K-Pump for well over a year during my training and it has become a staple. I started researching the benefits of Amino Acids during training, which made me start adding the Aminos Pump 50000. Adding the PUMP Protect has taken my training to the next level! My training is hard. There is little to no down time and I lift heavy as I can, so it is nice to have a drink that helps me focus, as well as keeps me fueled through the whole training session.

I also make a coffee creamer  with my Aminos Pump 50000, for my evening cup of coffee. I mix 3 scoops with my sweetener, a dash of cinnamon, and cold water till it is creamy. Then I add it to my coffee. It is heaven and I love the benefits!!!

Micronutrients…Why Multi-Vitamins Are Important @SaturnMuscle

 Micronutrients are just as important as your Macronutrients. Many who neglect their micros end up with vitamin deficiencies that lead to many health problems.

I find that many of my friends and family who do get sick a lot or have various issues, don’t take vitamins. many think they aren’t necessary. I personally believe that if more took them, they would be able to feel the difference and their quality of life would improve. Let’s face it, most doctors are more about making money over truly helping their patients. Prescription drugs will often be given over vitamins. Even though, many of the ailments could be resolved with just an increase of a certain vitamin/mineral.

I am adamant about making sure my family is healthy. Goodness knows I can not track their vitamin/mineral intake daily. Being able to hand them what they need via supplements form gives me the peace of mind that they will be healthy, no matter what their food choices 😉  Zoe takes Saturn Supplements Children’s Yummy-Vites They look like gummie bears and she loves the taste! They are full of the micronutrients she needs to keep her healthy and happy.They are also naturally sourced in both flavor and color which is important to me.

Children's Yummy-Vites

Josh and I both take Saturn Supplements One-Source Multi Vitamin packs. I love them because you get all your essential vitamins and nutrients in individual packets. No picking through multi pill bottles, just grab and go.

One-Source

I have taken many mutli -vitamins in the past and these are by far the best quality! The absolute strongest Vitamin & Mineral Pack on the market, Saturn’s One-Source delivers!

SBSC Fit Tips: Joint Health #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

Joint health is important no matter what your lifestyle.

Saturn Supplement’s  Joint Aid is a maximum strength Glucosamine and Chondroitin Complex.

DSC_6420

Glucosamine and Chondroitin are both found naturally in healthy cartilage. Both are used for joint pain and to treat OsteoArthritis. Many studies have been done that support the use!

“For a subset of participants with moderate-to-severe pain, glucosamine combined with chondroitin sulfate provided statistically significant pain relief compared with placebo—about 79 percent had a 20 percent or greater reduction in pain versus about 54 percent for placebo.”

The other one I received is Joint Matrix

DSC_6419

This one is my favorite! It not only supports joint and cartilage health, but also ligament and bone health. This is very important to me, being a heavy lifter as well as an aging female 😉

What Women Need to Know

Being female puts you at risk of developing osteoporosis and broken bones. Here are some facts:

There are multiple reasons why women are more like to get osteoporosis than men, including:

Several factors play into bone health, as well as ligament and joint health. Eating right, exercise, not smoking, etc

The benefits of a complex supplement like The Joint Matrix are also a huge weapon in prevention. The Joint Matrix not only has Glucosamine and Chondroitin, but also Shark Cartilage, Green Lipped Sea Mussel, L-Histidine, MSM and Boron.
Shark Cartilage is presumed to be full of health benefits. Anti-Inflammatory benefits, Fighting cancer, Arthritis relief, diminishing Psoriasis, Immune booster, treating Glaucoma, aiding in Digestion, etc the list is actually rather long lol
Green Lipped Sea Mussel another amazing supplement in itself! The benefits of it are described as the same as Shark Cartilage.
L-Histidine is an Amino acid. It supports the healing process and helps regenerate tissue. It also supports lower blood pressure and healthy skin 😉
MSM also known as METHYLSULFONYLMETHANE is found in humans, plants and animals. I think it can also be man made in a lab. As everything else, it also has a huge list of benefits! Chronic pain, scar tissue, muscle cramps, tendinitis, stretch marks, oral care, hair loss, weight loss, PMS, eye health, poor circulation, even snoring. The list for this one also goes on and on.
Boron is a mineral that is found in food and the environment.
Boron is used for building strong bones, treating osteoarthritis, as an aid for building muscles and increasing testosterone levels, and for improving thinking skills and muscle coordination.
I have found the benefits to using the Joint Matrix outstanding! I am a stickler about making sure my body is in tip top shape and this has been a HUGE addition to my supplement stack!

Recipe: Aminos Pump 50000 Gummies @SaturnMuscle #PoweredBySaturnSupplements

Aminos are something I consume several times a day. It is actually my go to supplement. I have written about the many benefits of aminos in the past. You can CLICK HERE to read more.

I love the Aminos Pump 50000, because it is an awesome blend with a fabulous vanilla flavor. One of my favorite ways to get my aminos is in gummy form. It is a super easy recipe that tastes just like candy 😉

What you will need:

1/2 Cup Water

Mixing bowl

1 Box whatever flavor Gelatin you would like to use. Sugar-free if you are low on carbs 😉

3 Envelopes of Unflavored Gelatin

72 grams of Aminos Pump 50000

20150123_152628

A pan to put your gummies in. I used a mini muffin pan which yields 24 servings

20150123_152816

Measure out your aminos,

20150123_153115

Then add all your gelatin and mix well,

20150123_153235

Add the 1/2 cup of water, mix well, and microwave for about 45 seconds. It will be a thick sticky goo. Much like children slime ha ha ha. Immediately start filling the pan. The mixture actually sets quite fast.

20150123_153838

Place the pan in the freezer for 5-10 mins then you can remove the gummies. they actually don’t stick bad at all.

20150123_161310

I coat them in a light layer of corn starch, so they won’y stick to each other, then store them in a Zipper bag, but you can store them however you choose. The peach gelatin with the vanilla tastes like peaches and cream candy 😉

20150123_161831

The macros are awesome too! I keep them in my gym bag and my hiking bag. Zoe loves them!!!

Myths And Facts About Six Pack Abs #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

You see a lot of companies promise flat tummies and six pack abs. Be it workouts, pills, shakes, wraps, what have you…

When I started my journey, having a six pack was everything I dreamed of! I did countless crunches and ab workouts. I could never achieve that tight muscular look. I could get skinny, but could not get those muscles to pop. I figured with all the focused ab training, there was NO WAY I didn’t have muscle there. I want to share what I have learned so far….

I now know it is a difference of diet and body fat percentage.

Fact is, the women you see with tight bodies in fitness magazines and ads have prepped for those photo shoots. That is right, most don’t walk around with a visible six pack.

Getting a chiseled six pack is attainable, but not typically sustainable. There are many myths and facts to getting that desired washboard stomach.

Myth: Doing a 1000 sit ups or crunches a day will get you a flat tummy and/or six pack.

This is false. If you have a surplus of body fat, you can spend your whole day doing crunches and will still not see the results you desire. That saying “Abs are made in the kitchen”…that is fact! Fat loss is plain and simple calorie deficit. Having your macros properly set up and sticking to them is how you will see visible abs.

Myth: You need special pills, shakes, or wraps.

No, but you can eat a balanced diet. Again, get your macros figured out and you will see the results you desire. It is all about your nutrition!!! In my opinion, if these products worked as well as they claimed, then everyone using them would look like fitness models from the neck down.

Myth: Only people with good genetics can have a six pack.

This couldn’t be further from the truth. Neither of my parents were lean mean muscle machines ha ha ha and neither are most bodybuilders. Genetics will determine how your six pack will look, as far as your muscle structure, but it will not determine whether it is attainable. That comes down to discipline and hard work.

Fact: Don’t stop doing core training.

No, ab training won’t make you chiseled, but your abs are still a muscle. If you want to build them up, then core training is necessary. Granted if you do the main heavy lifts like squats, deadlifts, and bench press, then you are already working your core! 😉 There are a ton of stellar core workouts!!! Do your research and find out what you love best!

Fact: You can not spot reduce.

If it is your belly that you are looking to lean out, then understand that you have to lose everywhere. spot reduction just does not exist. I hear this a lot too…”I just need to work my lower abs” This actually doesn’t exist either. Your abs are made up of four sections your Rectus Abdominis, Transverse Abdominis, then your Internal and External Obliques. Also “toning” you can gain muscle or lose muscle just as you can gain fat or lose fat. You can not “tone” a muscle and make a certain area of your body look tighter. To look tighter, again you just need to lose body fat.

Fact: It takes females longer to lose enough fat to see visible abs.

As I stated before, you have to be on a running calorie deficit for a long enough period of time to see visible abs. The amount of time and deficit varies depending on the individual. Basically, you must consume less calories than you burn.

Fact: Your body needs a ton of water!

Your body needs water to keep from bloating and to stay healthy. Make sure to keep your body well hydrated if you want to see results!!!

Fact: It takes time!!!!

Patience is definitely required. It is a process and not one that happens overnight. There is a reason you do not see a ton of people walking around with a chiseled midsection 😉 Discipline, patience, and determination.

Fact: A high protein diet helps you lean out!

I always recommend to add a protein shake or two to your daily nutrition.For a couple of reasons. One, it is a great sweet snack to keep you from binging on junk. Two, it is filling so you won’t be hungry right away. And Three, lean protein sources have been proven to help you lose fat and gain lean muscle. This is very important in the battle of the bulge.

My favorite is Saturn Supplement’s Smart Whey

It is delicious and not full of all the crap most powders o the market are. It has exactly what your body needs. From protein to the additional vitamins to keep your body well tuned.

SBSC Fit Tips: The Power In Amino Acids @SaturnMuscle #HyperionSeries #BuildWithThePowerOfTheUniverse

I get asked a lot what my go to supplement is……

My Amino Pump 50000 from Saturn Supplements. This is a supplement I use at least 3 times a day if not more. I drink some before training, while training, and most days a few times after training. Aminos are beneficial to muscle repair, recovery, and growth.

*From Aminoacidstudy.org *

Muscle Growth

muscle is built of amino acidsAmino acids are best known for their role inbuilding muscle and strength in athletes, in particular:

The analysis of the relevant physiological processes shows why supplementation can be effective in improving training effectiveness.

 

 

Can you get amino acids from food? Absolutely! however, there are benefits to consuming free form Amino Acids in addition to your normal nutrition.

Benefits such as the growth and repair of ALL tissues, improved calcium absorption for bone and muscle growth, breaks down fats, mood stimulator, FDA recommends BCAA’s for treatment of headaches, dizziness, fatigue, depression, and irritability, regulates your blood sugar levels, stimulates your body’s natural HGH release, better sexual enjoyment ie longer orgasms. The benefits list can go on and on. Amino Acids are probably one of the most utilized supplement by bodybuilders worldwide.

I found a ton of awesome articles that go further into depth about each individual amino, how it works, how much you should or shouldn’t be taking, etc. I am always a firm believer in educating yourself on what you put into your body as well as what is going to maximize your training!

Saturn Supplement’s Nitrox Pro Protein Fudge! #GetRealResultsWith @SaturnMuscle

This lady has been craving some chocolate!!!!

When you are dieting, it is important to think outside the box when it comes to treats. You want something that has lower macros, so you can indulge more! Saturn’s Protein fudge is perfect!!!

I am so excited that I came up with a Protein Fudge that is not only macro friendly, but delicious in every sense of the word!!!!

PicsArt_10-23-12.27.02

The ingredient list is pretty simple. One block of room temp Neufchatel cheese (Much like cream cheese, but better macros), 1 tsp of sweetener of your choice ( I use calorie free packets of splenda), Unsweetened Cocoa 20g, Melted Margarine 14g (I use this for flavor. I normally would have used 1 tsp butter extract, but was out), Nitrox Pro Protein powder in Chocolate, Kosher salt 1/4 tsp, and about 2 tbsps water.

DSC_8510

To start I added the cheese and cocoa powder to the mixing bowl, then poured in the melted margarine.

DSC_8513 On top of that I added the Nitrox Pro protein powder and began mixing.

DSC_8515

Make you you mix well and scrap the sides, because there can be little hidden pockets that form. Once you have it completely mixed You can pour it into a lined pan. I used a 4 x 6 dish. Make sure you use wax or parchment paper. It is really sticky, so smooth it out the best that you can, then pop it in the freezer for about an hour for a quick set or in the fridge for 3. It will need to be stored in the fridge. Cover once it has been set.

DSC_8517

Once it is ready you have a macro friendly and delicious protein fudge!

DSC_8518

It makes a small batch. From the 4 x 6 dish I was able to get 8 reasonable size pieces. Each serving was 34g total weight. 7.4g Fat, 3.8g Carbs, 1g Fiber, 1.2g Sugar, and 7.6g Protein, and 100% Perfection!!!!

Definitely will continue to be a go to recipe in my household!!!

Nitrox-Pro, in my opinion is the best protein for the money! 41g of QUALITY protein per serving. There are 50 servings in a tub! That is HUGE!!! The protein is awesome for cooking purposes. It is a non GMO Isolate protein. Gluten free, BCAA, and Glutamine enriched, and so delicious!!! Hands down, it is and has been my favorite go to protein, but don’t take my word for it! check them out yourself, but be sure to use code 25YEARS to get an additional 25% off your total order.

B12 Keeping Athletes Healthy & Beautiful! #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

B12 is a vitamin, that I believe is typically missed by the younger crowd, especially athletes! Athletes that lack in vitamin B12 may preform worse during high intensity training and have difficulty in recovering, as published by  Oregon State University research in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism.

B12 is always something I heard that my grandparents and parents needed. Never did I consider it an issue for myself.  The fact is, B12 is a micro-nutrient that is very important for athletes. It aids in converting proteins and sugars into energy and aid in the repairs your cells. Training is hard on your body, and athletes performance depends mainly on their nutrition. Like many of our micro-nutrients there are SO many benefits to this vitamin!

~It protects against certain cancers. Just to list a few breast, lung, colon, and prostate.

~It helps prevent Alzheimer’s Disease. I have a family history, so this is important for me as something I certainly want to prevent!

~It’s amazing for your hair, skin, and nails!!!! Who doesn’t want to look their best? B12 is a vitamin that promotes cell repair. This improves your outward appearance as well as your inner.

~Revs up your digestive system. If you have issues with your digestive system being a little on the slow side, or getting constipated often, it can affect your body in negative ways. it is important to stay regular.

~Improves heart health. Keeps your blood pressure regulated, prevents strokes, and keeps your cholesterol down. heart problems can start at any age. It all comes down to how well you care for your body. I am a former heavy smoker, so I do think about the damage I did in the past and how I can improve and impact my health in a positive way now.

~Helps you stay happy. B12 is one of the micro-nutrients that keeps depression away.

~Boosts energy levels. This is important whether you are an athlete, mother, or just working 9-5. It’s probably the number 1 thing people say they never have enough of (other than time and money ha ha ha)

~Get a good nights sleep. B12 regulates your meletonin levels. This will help you sleep easier and better.

Vitamin B12 can be found in many foods, milk, meats, eggs, nuts, dark leafy greens, etc. Not everyone eats enough of these to get their daily intake. My hubs is guilty of this. He works so much and most times grabs foods that are more convenient than healthy. I think that is pretty common at this day in age. This is why I always stress the importance of Micro-nutrients.

SBSC Fit Tips: My Contest Prep Supplement Stack #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

I am 4 weeks out from the most prestigious amateur title shot in the world, the USA Championships in Las Vegas, Nevada! It is an IFBB Pro qualifier, so pretty much a really big deal!

I get asked a ton of questions about my contest prep. I do not divulge my training or my nutrition plan, out of respect for my coach. That is how she makes her living and sharing the details with you all would just be wrong. Not to mention, everyone is different, so what may work for me training and diet wise, may not work for you. If you make healthy choices, eat in moderation, and train hard, you will get results!

What I will share is my awesome contest prep supplement stack! As you know, Saturn Supplement’s products are what I have used exclusively for over 4 years. I stand by their products, because they are top quality, their customer service is unparalleled, and most importantly THEY WORK! Saturn is a small company that has been working in the industry and providing elite athletes with phenomenal products for over 25 years. They have a huge list of supplements and I trust them. There is not one product that I wouldn’t take, period. I actually give quite a few of their products to my daughter as well.

Build With The Power Of The Universe

During contest prep, there are many things that are important to me. One is my overall health and wellness. With the additional training that I do, how strenuous it can be, and the added factor of being in a calorie deficit, it is easy for a competitor’s health to decline. We become susceptible to illness and injury. I try to protect myself as best I can. I do so partially with stretching and rest, but also with supplements. Another important key for me is protecting the hard earned muscle I have while losing fat.

img_20161010_204315038

Vitamin C is top of the list. Many know it’s antioxidant properties help protect you from the common cold, but it goes deeper than that. Vitamin C’s antioxidant properties protect cells and their DNA from damage and mutation. Vitamin C is also an important factor in collagen production. This basically means it helps your body heal from injury, be it cuts, bone breaks, muscle tears, etc. It also helps regulate your blood sugar levels. I take Saturn’s C-1000 Complex 3 times a day. It provides a Time-Release formula of super antioxidant Vitamin C with a unique host of supporting nutrients including Citrus Bioflavonoids, Rose Hips, Orange Peel, Lime Oil, Acerola and Quercetin-Truly one of the most unique Vitamin C complexes available!

C-1000 Complex

The Vitamin B Complex is composed of eight B vitamins — B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12 — They all play an important role in keeping our bodies running like well-oiled machines. B1 helps the body make healthy new cells. Considered an anti-stress vitamin because of its ability to protect the immune system. An another added benefit is it help break down those simple carbohydrates. B2 works as an antioxidant to help fight free radicals and is also important for red blood cell production, which is necessary for transporting oxygen throughout the body. B3 boosts your HDL cholesterol and reduces acne. B5 down fats and carbs for energy, it’s responsible for the production of sex and stress-related hormones and also promotes healthy skin with the ability to reduce signs of skin aging such as redness and skin spots. B6 helps the body produce serotonin, melatonin and norepinephrine, a stress hormone. B7 promotes healthy hair, skin and nails as well as control high blood glucose levels. B9 keep depression at bay. B12 This B vitamin is a team player working with all the other B vitamins to boost their benefits! I take Saturn’s B-100 Complex three times a day.

B-100 Complex

Flaxseed is up next. It is rich in omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids. It has many benefits such as lowering cholesterol, stabilizing blood sugar, reducing bone loss, promoting weight loss, and increasing immunity. I take these pills 4 times a day.

Flaxseed

CLA or Conjugated Linoleic Acid CLA amazing omega-6 fatty acid. Certain fats are vital to numerous functions in the body, including metabolism. CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) is a natural free fatty acid that has an impact on body weight loss and muscle tone. Basically, it reduces body fat while preserving muscle tissue, may also increase your metabolic rate, and increase lean muscle tissue. I also take these 4 times a day.

CLA

Multi-Vitamins of choice for me are Saturn’s One Source. I have been taking them for years now and I see the best results with them. I typically take a packet before bed. It’s the absolute strongest Vitamin & Mineral Pack on the market. You cannot always be sure of getting all the nutrients you need from food, and Saturn’s One-Source Pack is designed to enrich your body with a complete dietary supplement-perfect for everyday taking. Each Freshness-Assured packet provides the best that natural vitamins and minerals have to offer.

One-Source

Fat burning Thermogenic. I love my Lipo-EX. Hands down the best energy giving supplement and appetite suppressant I have found. Each serving provides your body with a premium blend of the most advanced power-charged ingredients which take on an immediate effect. I take these once to twice a day, before cardio. Depends on my energy levels.

LIPO-EX

Saturn’s Outer Limits (One of my favorite supplements) providesessential key nutrients that are not only vital to good health, but are required for strength training and growth. Outer Limits provides a precision blend of natural muscle-building ingredients offered in optimum proportions. Saturn’s Outer Limits Hardcore Blast + PUMP Stack Pack has been one of their best-selling mass-enhancing formulas for over 19 years. Packed full of pre-digested Amino Acids, BCAAs, Digestive Enzymes, Omega EFA’s, Sports Enhancers, Caffeine and other highly supporting muscle actives, Outer Limits delivers what it takes to build solid muscle. I take one packet twice a day.

Outer Limits

BCAA’s (Branch Chain Amino Acids) Have a ton of benefits such as recovery, weight loss, muscle growth and retention, immune support, and a long list of many others. I take them all day. Typically the further into prep, the more I consume. I like to add them to crushed ice to stave off hunger pangs. Plus they are delicious!!! I take Saturn’s Aminos Pump 50000. It’s an easy-to-digest soluble concentrated amino-protein formula enriched with a powerful ratio of BCAA’s, Nitric Oxide and a full spectrum of Pharma-Engineered predigested amino acids that can be quickly and efficiently utilized by the body. The ultimate way to build solid muscle is to have a constant intake of powerful, pumping amino acids, and that’s exactly what Amino Pump 50000 does for you. Each serving provides your body with an impressive nitrogen retention source of amino acid protein which helps you to achieve maximum muscle growth/ maintenance and protein synthesis while improving the time of muscle tissue recuperation.

Amino Pump 50000

Creatine Silk is last but certainly not least on the list. Like aminos, creatine has a huge list of benefits. The most notable are increase in muscle strength, increase in muscle pump and force of contraction, It provides energy to the muscle cells, and increases endurance. I take Creatine Silk when I first wake up and post weight training.

Creatine Silk

A huge thank you to each and everyone at Saturn Supplements for your continued belief in me, your love and support, and for helping me grow in the sport physically and mentally. You guys have been awesome and I really just can’t thank you all enough for your support!!!

SBSC Fit Tip: Get More ZZZ’s How Sleep Can Affect Your Fat Loss #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

According to a 2013 Gallup poll 40% of Americans get less than the recommended amount of sleep. I don’t know about you, but 40% seems like a lot to me!

Lack of sleep can affect us in several ways. We’ve all have had that groggy morning where we are angry at the world ha ha

Moodiness isn’t the only unpleasant side effect of losing sleep, weight gain is too. A study posted on jounalsleep.com actually listed it as a risk factor for obesity. The study found that people who are sleeping less than 7 hours a night tend to be heavier or bigger, gain more weight, and have a harder time losing it. If that’s not a reason to sleep in more, I don’t know what is!

Here are some SBSC tips to help you get more ZZZ’s

Turn Off Your Electronics ~ One of the top late night social media posts is “I can’t sleep” Well, put your phone down. Yes, put down your phones, tablets, laptops, and turn off your television. These item all keep you awake, by stimulating your brain. Shut it all down so you can shut down.

Cool And Dark ~ A room that is cooler and dark will help you get to sleep and stay asleep. Consider turning the air down, getting a fan, or even sleeping in less. A darker room can be as simple as darkening shades or again shutting down all electronics.

Stick To A Schedule ~ Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time everyday. It really does help when your body is on a schedule. I typically don’t even need an alarm when I get into a routine.

Watch What You Consume ~ Nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol are all known stimulants that can wreak havoc on quality sleep. Keep them in check. Also going to bed too full or too hungry can leave you feeling uncomfortable.

Get Active ~ Adding in physical activity can promote better sleep, helping you to fall asleep faster and to enjoy deeper sleep. Timing is important, though. If you exercise too close to bedtime, you might be too energized to fall asleep.

Get Relaxed ~ Sometimes this is as simple as reading a book, a warm bath or shower before bed, yoga, or meditation.

Natural Supplements ~ Melatonin is one of the top  sleep aid supplements and for good reason. It’s is a naturally occurring hormone that your body releases in cycles throughout the day. It keeps us alert during the day and at rest during the night, and it is what our body needs to in order to sleep. Saturn Supplement’s Melatonin is the perfect remedy for individuals seeking to optimize restfulness thorough sleep, or as a remedy for jet-lag. Their version of Melatonin comes in the form of a micro-size sublingual tablet-simply place under your tongue and feel it dissolve almost instantaneously.

Melatonin

Other awesome supplements are Magnesium. It helps maintain normal muscle and nerve function, keeps heart rhythm steady, supports a healthy immune system, keeps bones strong, helps regulate blood sugar levels, and promotes normal blood pressure. It inhibits nerve cell communication, which leads to cell excitability. Basically preventing you from being stressed. Theanine is another great one. It is an amino acid typically found in green tea. It is known for reducing anxiety and promoting relaxation. B Vitamins help tryptophan in your body convert to niacin and serotonin, which regulate sleep and increase REM. Saturn’s Vitaplex covers all these and more. It contains a 42 Fruit & Vegetable Blend as well as CoQ10, Vitamin D3, Wheat Grass, Acai, Blueberry, Grape Seed, Panax Ginseng and a host of supporting nutrients including AntiOxidants, Electrolytes and nutrients that fortify Hair, Skin & Nails. VitaPlex is perfect for both Men and Women and makes an excellent source of nutrition for everyday health.

Vitaplex

For these and a HUGE array of other amazing products check out Saturn Supplements full line. They have been in the industry for well over 25 years for a reason! I would not put my name behind a company that didn’t have top of the line quality. My family and I have been using Saturn exclusively for over 4 years and I have personally seen amazing results!

SBSC Fit Tip Kids: Keeping Your Kiddos Healthy & Happy #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

Keeping yourself on track is one thing, but we owe it to our children to make sure that we are helping them make healthy choices as well. If we want our children to healthy and happy, it is our job to teach them.

Image result for healthy kids

With all the crazy snacks available and this being a digital age, it can be hard to get your children to make proper food choices and stay active. Here are some Fit Tips we use to keep Zoe on track.

One ~ Hydration ~ Many children, especially in the summer months, are not drinking enough WATER. Just as we need to be drinking a ton of water, so to our kiddos. If you buy a lot of flavored drinks like KoolAid, Soda, Juice, etc. it can be difficult to get your child to switch. What has worked for many of my clients, is to just stop buying the other stuff. Zoe has an occasional soda or juice, but she knows that her primary drink choice is water, so that is what she drinks. If you don’t give them other options, then they will drink the water. Water is important. It maintains the balance of all your bodily fluids including digestion, absorption, circulation, transports nutrients, and maintains your body’s temperature. It keeps your hair, skin, and nails healthy. Energizes your muscles, rids your body of toxins, and improves bowel function.

Two ~ Watch What They Eat ~ All too often parents buy snacks and meals that are quick, easy, and convenient. It may save you on time, but you aren’t doing them any favors. I meal prep, not just for my hubs and I, but for the whole family. We buy fresh fruit and veggies for Zoe to snack on. In the summer we freeze berries, because they make a perfect hot weather snack, or she can use the frozen berries as ice to cool down her water. We try to keep whole food readily available for her to grab and go. When you stop buying all the pre-made processed foods and snacks, you spend about the same amount of money. The only difference is time. To make all the foods as convenient, you do have to set aside a food prep day. We do it as a family. It allows us to have a couple of hours together to talk and teaches Zoe how to safely prepare foods for herself.

Three ~ Protein Power ~ Like most adults I know, children often do not consume enough protein. Zoe went through a picky stage and didn’t want to eat meat. Well at least not the meats I would deem healthy for her. She loves hotdogs and let’s face it, they are much more fat than protein and not generally that healthy of a food choice. We opted to give her protein powder. We use Saturn’s Smart Whey. It is a great tasting pure protein powder. I typically only have to give her half a serving. With kids I base their protein consumption at .5-1.0 grams per pound of body weight. Depending on age and activity level. With Zoe it is usually between .5-.75 grams. With Smart Whey we also make what we call protein pudding pops. Just mix 2 servings of Smart Whey with One package of instant pudding and a cup of milk, mix thoroughly, freeze in popsicle molds. Great healthy protein snack for you and the kiddos 😉

Smart Whey

Four ~ Multi Vitamins ~ Even though Zoe eats healthy about 80% of the time, I still want to make sure she is getting all of her necessary vitamins and nutrients. She has been exclusively taking Saturn’s Children’s Yummy Vites since she was two years old. They are delicious, all natural gummie bears that keep her healthy and happy! Saturn is our family trusted brand. She loves her Yummy Vites and usually reminds me to give them to her in the morning! She never misses a dose ha ha.

Five ~ Get Moving ~ In this digital age, many kiddos are spending more time on the sofa , rather than outside. Sometimes to help kids get up and moving is to join them! When you are participating in the activities with them, they become more engaged. Too many parents are spending too much time staring at their phones or tablets too. Zoe and I do morning yoga together. We have since she was a baby. It is a bonding time for us. We also swim at the pool together and when I take her to the park, we play tag, slide, do relay races, etc. She loves that I get up and get moving with her. I love that it has her moving and getting enough exercise too!

Truth About Women & Creatine #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

Creatine is a supplement I find that many women are afraid to use. Typically, it’s because of misinformation. I would like to shed some truth on the matter.

What is Creatine? Defined by Medical News Today ~ “Creatine is a nitrogenous organic acid produced in the liver that helps supply energy to cells all over the body – particularly muscle cells. It is made out of three amino acids: L-arginine, glycine, and L-methionine.”  Basically, it’s an amino acid that is naturally found in any food that contains protein.

I first heard about the supplement as being used for athletes, but it is also commonly used to treat many things as well. Disorders such as Arthritis, Diabetes, Parkinson’s, Depression, Congestive heart failure, and even improved cognitive ability.

When I began lifting, I had heard many things about creatine. “It’s only for men” It will make you HUGE” “It is a form of steroids” Etc…. All are actually far from the truth. The fact that many think it should only be used by men, or is an illegal drug, just shows how uneducated people are about the subject.

Creatine has many benefits for male and female athletes alike!

Benefits

~ It increases your body’s capacity to endure high intensity workouts. It increases energy and strengthens muscle fibers. This equates to pumping out more reps, going faster, stronger, and harder.

~ Volumizes your muscles. You may have heard people say that Creatine will cause you to hold water. This is actually a true statement, but not in the regards to how your monthly will make you hold water. With Creatine, you will hold an extra 3-5lbs of water in your muscles. It aids in synthesizing protein, which equates to muscle growth 😉

~Increases Brain function. This can benefit you by helping you stay focused throughout your training

~ It may reduce age related muscle loss. ” Creatine has also been shown to improve isometric strength in addition to body composition in older adults, provided a strength-training program is run concurrently 1. In their double blind study, Brose and colleagues assigned 28 healthy men and women – over age 65 – to a 14 week resistance training exercise program, during which these subjects trained three days a week.14 of these participants were given five grams of creatine mixed with two grams of dextrose while the other 14 subjects received a placebo of seven grams of dextrose. After the 14 weeks, the creatine group were found to have experienced greater increases in fat free mass and total body mass, in addition to improvements in isometric knee extension strength.This study helps to confirm the role creatine can play in offsetting age related muscle wasting, if combined with a strength training regime.”

The benefits list can actually go on and on. Creatine is a supplement that is important to add to your regimen. A supplement to aid in your progress and development. Women have a harder time developing muscle. We almost have to train harder and longer to achieve those goals. We all know the more muscle, the more fat you burn. This is why I highly recommend adding it to your stack today!

Saturn Supplements has three phenomenal types of Creatine to choose from!

The first is Creatine 3. Saturn’s Creatine 3 provides a unique Triple-Blend Complex of the three most effective forms of Creatine including Monohydrate, Phosphate and Pyruvate. It comes in pill form.

Creatine 3

Next in line is Creatine Monohydrate. Saturn’s Creatine Monohydrate is made for individuals seeking the many benefits associated with this most common form of Creatine. Each serving provides your body with a premium Pharma-grade of pure micronized elemental Creatine monohydrate in a quick and easy to digest powder form. This is powder form, which is most popular with athletes. Mainly, because it is easier to measure your amounts.

Creatine Monohydrate

Last, but certainly not least, my favorite…. Creatine Silk. Saturn’s revolutionary Creatine Silk provides the body with the most technologically advanced powder form available. Our Micro-Screened Ultra-Fine powder provides a smooth and instant dissolve for maximum delivery. Each serving offers a pure, premium grade of Micronized Elemental Creatine Monohydrate, known for its role in health and fitness.You will notice a qualitatively difference when you open each package of Creatine Silk. It’s silky-smooth texture mimics the grade of materials found in Saturn’s Buffered-Creatine. Enhanced refinement of powder with enhanced method of delivery! This is what you can expect from Saturn’s Creatine Silk – an absolute mass building formula for athletes and everyday fitness.

Creatine Silk

SBSC Fit Tips: SmartWhey The Perfect Protein #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

Finding a good protein that isn’t full of junk AND tastes good can be a daunting task when you are just starting out. With so many options out there, it can be so confusing.

Image result for im so confused

When I started on my journey, I tried SO many different protein powders. Many I chose because of flavor. Back then, the only difference I saw in protein powders was whether it was isolate or casein protein and if it tasted good.

I have learned SO much since then!!! Many protein powders have fillers, GMO’s, and poor quality protein. Some are not only low quality protein, but also low amounts. I had a client purchase a 2 lb tub (I won’t name brands)  that was 15g of protein and 8 carbs per serving. That is insane to me! When I use protein powders, it is to supplement my protein intake. I look for a higher serving size as well.

All of these reasons led me to Saturn Supplements and their Smart Whey. Smart Whey is the perfect source of nutrition consisting of Cross Flow Micro-Filtered Whey Isolate Protein and a high support vitamin and mineral complex. To enhance the overall perfection of this formula, Smart Whey is 100% NON-GMO.

Smart Whey

Smart Whey is 32g of protein per serving. Each flavor is delicious! My fave is chocolate, but their vanilla is amazing too! I am typically not a fan of most vanilla proteins, as they taste like chalk. With Smart Whey, this is not the case. I like the more simple flavors, because I know they can be trusted and easily mixed for recipes.

The revolutionary Micro-Filtration manufacturing process that Saturn uses produces a protein supplement that is 90 to 95% protein by volume. This is HUGE when you are comparing to other protein powders. This purity makes whey isolate the most digestible protein available and is virtually fat and cholesterol free. It is by far the most desirable protein source to athletes. Each 35 gram serving provides you with 32 grams of pure digestible lactose-free protein enriched with L-glutamine and branched-chain amino acids. No other protein formula provides you with as much pure protein per serving!

To further enhance the effectiveness of this revolutionary protein. Saturn’s Pharma-Engineered Vitamin and Mineral Complex provides the body with not only the calcium, needed for muscle contraction and relaxation, but key elements necessary for biochemical reactions that take place throughout intensive training-nutrients that are not only vital to good health, but are required for lean gains. This means it is also covering you on a full spectrum of vitamins that your body needs to recover and grow.

Smart Whey is an amazing protein powder whether you are a seasoned athlete or just starting out.

If you have supplement, nutrition, or training questions reach out to me and I will help guide you in the right direction. CONTACT ME
