SBSC Fit Tips: Amino Acids The Building Blocks To Your Success #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

BCAA’s are the building blocks of protein.

They are also the building blocks to all of your training goals!

Let’s face it, we all have different goals. Some train for bodybuilding competitions, some for powerlifting, some endurance like CrossFit or long distance running, and many just to stay fit and healthy. No matter what you are training for, keeping your body fueled and running top notch is a universal priority!

This is why BCAA’s or Branch Chained Amino Acids are SO important! They provide every type of athlete the necessary fuel pre, intra, and post workout.

There are around 80 amino acids found in nature, but our bodies only utilize about 20. Each havening it’s own job to do. They are essential for our bodies to function properly. We know that aminos are the building blocks of protein. This is why it is recommended that you eat complete proteins. I recommend .8-1.0 grams per lb of body weight. Fish, poultry, beef, and protein powders are all amazing ways to get your protein. When the protein breaks down in your body, the individual aminos travel to exactly where your body needs them and some reassemble back into protein aka your muscles.

The fascinating thing about aminos when you consume them in concentrated form like supplements, they preform different functions that go beyond muscle making. I want to discuss the 7 aminos that help the ladies with our goals.

L-Carnitine ~ This amino helps our bodies  increase and utilize the little testosterone that we have to make it more efficient in building lean muscle, burning fat, prevent fatigue, prevent damage, and increase blood flow to the muscles.

Glutamine ~ Boosts the production of creatine, enhances muscle growth, improves recovery and immune function, aids in digestion, prevents fatigue and some will say prevents sweet tooth attacks.

Glycine ~ Increases growth hormone levels, boosts production of creatine, and stimulates muscles to contract which increases strength.

Taurine ~ You see this one in a lot of energy drinks, so you already know that it provides a boost of energy. It also enhances ALL your muscles abilities to contract. This means it gives you endurance.

Carnosine ~ Another muscle and endurance boosting amino, but this one also serves the purpose of destroying free radicals that can damage your muscles.

Arginine ~ This one increase nitric oxide production, increasing blood flow and giving you the ultimate pump. When this happens, that improved blood flow is delivering more essential nutrients to your muscle fibers and helping them grow as well as increase in strength.

Tyrosine ~ This one functions as a stimulant. It boosts the production of a hormone called Norepinephrine. This hormone enhances fat loss and controls your appetite. Like a natural thermogenic.

I like to add aminos to my one/+ gallons of water that I drink for the day. This way I am fueling my body constantly with the essentials. Mind you my training is split into two, 2 hour sessions a day, so I lose a lot of vital nutrients from sweating and intense training. Even with that being said, I would still recommend anyone to take BCAA’s throughout the day to make sure your body is functioning top notch, especially women!

My favorite Aminos are Saturn Supplement’s Aminos Pump 50000. I have been drinking these daily in my off season and contest prep for over 4 years now. An ultra concentrated amino acid powder, enriched with BCAA’s, extra L-Glutamine, and Nitric Oxide make this blend a performance powerhouse! There are 59 servings per container, so it is an AWESOME value!!!

SBSC Fit Tips: Energy Boosters #PoweredBySaturnSupplements @SaturnMuscle

When you lack in energy it is difficult to get anything done, especially your workout. Use these tips to get you up and going everyday!

One ~ Morning stretch. Take time in the morning to stretch your muscles and get your blood flowing. Whether you lead an active lifestyle or a sedentary one, stretching in the morning is all it takes for instant energy, shake off grogginess, and limber up for the day ahead. Stretching also helps slightly raise the body’s core temperature, loosening up muscles, and preparing them for activity. Morning stretches also help the spine stay supple and agile. Our favorite is the Sun Salutation.

Two ~ Breakfast. Your body has essentially been in starvation mode all night. Refuel your energy with a healthy breakfast. One that is balanced with plenty of carbs, protein, and even a little fat. Many love to skip this meal and it the main reason they start every morning out sluggish and sometimes moody. Feed your hangry body and feel great and energized!

Three ~ Ease into your day. Basically, leave yourself enough time in the morning that you are not rushing around. If this means waking up 15 mins earlier, then do that. Stop hitting the snooze and get u and start your day. When you can take the time to be relaxed and have your “me” time in the morning, you not only feel more energized, but you also feel happier. I always try to wake about 15-30 mins before Zoe so I can sit and contemplate my day in silence. It’s nice to have my morning to myself ha ha

Four ~ Drink Your Water. When you are dehydrated, your body starts to shut down. Your energy levels get zapped. Be sure you are drinking at least half your body weight in ounces everyday. I start my morning with a glass of water and continue to guzzle all day long.

Five ~ Energy Supplements. I am adamant about taking my morning and afternoon Saturn Supplement’s Lipo-EX. You never see me without them! Ultra-Pure synergistic complex designed to enhance the body’s natural powder to utilize, energize and metabolize. Their formula provides your body with all the necessary means to maximize energy and burning force. I have tried several energizing thermogenics over the years. Some had me bouncing off the walls, only to crash shortly after. Others had me feeling like my heart was going to explode out of my chest and others did absolutely nothing. I have just pure natural energy with Saturn’s Lipo-EX. I am confident in their products, because I have been using them for over 4 years and the only thing I have seen is progress! Lipo-EX is my wake up/pre-workout wonder.

LIPO-EX

Get your day started off on an energized and positive note and staying on track will be a breeze!

SBSC Fit Tips: Why Take Supplements? #poweredbysaturnsupplements @SaturnMuscle

Why take supplements?

Image result for why

This is probably one of the most asked questions I get. Some will tell you that supplements are not necessary. I believe on some level we all need extra nutrition.
The science of nutritional anthropology has shown that our ancestors were consuming an average of 3500-5000 calories a day, both male and females. They typically ate huge nutritionally dense meals. Most people in today’s society do not eat nearly anywhere near that amount in calories, let alone nutritionally dense calories. This is where supplements come into play.
Perhaps there is a critical foods you can’t eat or don’t like. Supplements can fill in the nutritional gaps. Maybe you lead a super busy lifestyle and don’t always have time to prepare food. Or maybe you just want to gain a bit of competitive edge. There are a few supplements powerful enough to do that.

Today, I just want to touch base on what supplements I believe most people need to not only achieve their goals, but to stay healthy and strong. One tip is to spread your vitamins throughout the day. This way your body can completely absorb each nutrient. I typically take my multi in the morning, and others 2-3 other times during the day.

Multi-Vitamin~ My personal choice is Saturn Supplement’s One Source. 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.

One-Source

Vitamin B Complex ~ For proper digestion, muscle contraction, and energy production. My go to is Saturn’s B-100 Complex. It is designed to provide a single-source combination of the B vitamin family, including biotin and folic acid. This time-release B complex mimics natural sources of these compounds as found in yeast, green vegetables, and meats.

B-100 Complex

Vitamin C ~ This antioxidant is for it’s immune boosting capabilities. Saturn’s C-1000 Complex 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

Protein powder~ Many people, women especially have issues with hitting their protein goals. This is where protein powders come in. Smart Whey is the perfect source of nutrition consisting of 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 Micro-Filtration 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 a toned body.

Smart Whey

These are what I find are essential to everyone’s health and well being. Making sure you have the proper nutrition, exercise program, and supplementation can be the defining way for you to begin to see change!
