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.

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 ūüėČ

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 ūüėČ

~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.

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.

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.

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.
