Supplement Shopping & Need More Info? @SaturnMuscle #BuildWithThePowerOfTheUniverse

In an overcrowded industry with many making outlandish claims, it can be frustrating, confusing, and intimidating to find out what supplements may be right for you and your goals.

First and foremost, I AM NOT A DOCTOR. I encourage you to do your own research, educate yourself, talk to your doctor, track your progress, and draw your own conclusions. The brand I always suggest is Saturn Supplements. Reason being, is they are a company that I trust and have been working closely with. Their products are currently the only supplements I take and I have been seeing results with.

What are supplements? Supplements are things like Multi-vitamins, protein, BCAA’s, pre-workout drinks, glutamine, creatine, etc. Many athletes take supplements to recover their body’s depletion of essential nutrients. This happens quickly with heavy exercise and training. Supplements are meant to SUPPLEMENT a healthy diet, NOT replace it. Supplements are not a quick fix solution to losing fat or gaining muscle. This is one of the reasons I love Saturn, is they don’t fill your head with nonsense. Their products are labeled clear cut. They list ingredients, serving size, and purpose. They don’t need to push any dubious claims, because they strive to put out a quality product.

Sponsored athletes like Elizabeth Stenberg and myself, are proud to be apart of such a phenomenal team!

  • Elizabeth to compete at the USATF Georgia Regional Championships June 1st!         2013 USATF GA Southeast Regionals Gold Medal (Javelin)
  • 2012 NCAA National Qualifier (Javelin)
  • 2012 NCAA Academic All-American
  • 2012 NCCAA All American (Heptathlon)
  • 2012 Became 4th ranked of all time in NCCAA Heptathlon history
  • 2012 Conference Champion (High Jump)
  • 2011 7th at NCCAA Nationals

“In just three short years since I have begun running track, I have competed successfully at the collegiate level, earning school honors, PAC (conference) titles, NCCAA All-American status, and qualifying and competing at NCAA Dill Nationals.  These competitions not only provided me with excellent competitive opportunities, but fueled my desire to continue competing.  With the support of my amazing sponsorship provider, Saturn Supplements, I have been able to fuel my body and my competitive training with such an incredible array of nutrition that has become a major part of my health and training.  Saturn’s products are tried and true and I feel a difference in the quality and formulation of the products I take.  Thank you Saturn!!”  

Saturn Supplements has a HUGE product line. I have tried most of their products and have not been let down yet! They do have a list of Best Seller’s that are a must to check out!!!!

Smart Whey

“Smart Whey is the perfect source of nutrition consisting of 100% Cross Flow Micro-Filtered Whey Isolate Protein & Protein (dairy sources), and a high support vitamin and mineral complex. To enhance the overall perfection of this formula, Smart Whey is 100% NON-GMO, containing NO Genetically Modified Organisms.

The revolutionary Ion-Exchange manufacturing process produces a protein supplement that is 90 to 95% protein by volume. 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!

We realized for maximum protein absorption you needed a high supportive blend of nutrients 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 massive gains.”

I can personally state that this protein is excellent!!! I can see why it is a best seller!!!

One Source Multi-Vitamin…

“One Source is the absolute strongest Vitamin & Mineral Pack on the market, Saturn’s One-Source delivers! 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.”

I take One Source daily. It is convenient for me, because there is no vitamin sorting. They each come in their own individual packs. I believe that multi-vitamins are necessary in day in age. A lot of the food we eat is normally malnutritious due to mass harvesting, pesticides sprayed on food, not to mention all the hormones given to our meat sources. I don’t always eat enough of my micro-nutrients either. Since I started taking One Source. I am sick less often, my hair, skin, and nails, have improved in look and texture, and I over all feel better!

Joint-Aid

“Saturn’s New & Improved Joint-Aid, is now a Sustained-Release formula designed to nutritionally support healthy joint function over a more gradual period of time. Saturn’s Joint-Aid provides your body with one of the highest potency glucosamine products available. Each fast-dissolving capsule provides 750mg of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate.”

Joint Aid is a phenomenal formula to provide nutritional support for strengthening joints, ligaments, tendons and cartilage. Any heavy lifter can tell you the importance of this kind of support!!!

BCAA 800mg Capsules

“Saturn’s BCAA Branched-Amino provides a precision blend of the three most predominant amino acids in muscle. For years now, athletes have used BCAA supplements to help them achieve greater mass gains by preventing muscle tissue breakdown. Saturn’s Ultra-Pure complex consists of L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-valine with absolutely no fillers, no extras-just pure free form branched-chain material.”

I have repeatedly told you the benefits of BCAA’s. Saturn’s formula speeds recovery, reduces fatigue, and maximizes muscle stimulation on a cellular level.

HMB 1500…

HMB 1500

“Saturn’s HMB 1500 HardCore is the most intense extra-strength formula on the market! This branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) metabolite B-hydroxy-B-methylbutyrate monohydrate (HMB) is the optimum support supplement for athletes demanding lean muscle gains.
HMB provides the body with weight altering advantages, unlike any other single supplement. For decades now, HMB has been used by athletes for its muscle-optimizing properties including breakdown prevention, repair and recovery.”

Another phenomenal BCAA formula. Fast dissolving for that lean body mass repair.

What supplements do you take? Do you have questions about any? I would love to hear back from you!

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 😉

Nitrox-Pro PHARMAFORCE-EFX Muscle Reinforcement Isolate Whey Protein Power Mix with Nitric Oxide Booster / Non-GMO Protein / Gluten-Free / BCAA + L-Glutamine Enriched

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 add K-Pump, PUMP Protect, and Aminos 50000

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.
