Fit Tip Friday: Four Daily Supplements for a Better You
The secrets to having a better mood, sleep, energy, and beauty
When we think of Iron Man we usually picture Robert Downey Jr. in some goofy suit saving a damsel in distress. But the real IRONMAN competitors could probably take D.J. down in a second! That’s because they compete in hardcore, long-distance triathalons consisting of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bicycle ride and a 26.2-mile run — without a break.
So how on earth do these crazy competitors do it?! We chatted with Rachelle Jorgensen, who placed first in the Ironman Canada Female 40-44 Kona Qualifier, along with other Ironman competitions on the West Coast. (Oh, did we mention she’s a wife, mother, and a grandmother?!) She explained that getting the right nutrients is a vital part of her success.
“Taking care of my body means that I am making sure it gets the fuel it needs. So it’s all about taking the right supplements that will help me get through a long and hard training schedule – one that can last an upwards of seven hours a day!”
MRI’s EO2 VMAX is the perfect supplement to make someone performance ready. Every time I take it – I like to pair it up with NO2 Red Hemo Surge, which triggers new growth and fuel muscle cell replication — I can feel it kick in. Among its many factors, it supports oxygen delivery and uptake; maintains stamina and endurance; fights fatigue; provides antioxidant defense and immune support; and produces energy.
Natrol’s Mood Positive 5-HTP works wonders because it combines 5-HTP and L-Theanine. Simply put, 5-HTP supports serotonin production in the body, which enhances mood, while L-Theanine is an amino acid that stimulates the brain’s alpha waves to bring about a relaxed, but alert mental state. If you want to reduce your anxiety, feel happy and have a sense of well-being, this one’s for you.
Sleep is so important because it’s essential for giving your muscles enough fuel and recovery time after a rigorous workout. So before I ease into bed, I take Natrol’s Melatonin 10mg Fast Dissolve. It is the best nighttime sleep aid and gives me the 8 to 10 hours of quality sleep needed to heal the micro-trauma in my muscle cells. I wake up alert and ready to tackle whatever comes my way!
As you already know, I put my body through a lot of stress in the pursuit of living a healthy and active lifestyle. I also understand that how you look reflects how healthy you are. That’s why I think Natrol’s Skin Hair Nails supplement is the best way to take care of yourself. The supplement contains free-radical fighting vitamins A, C, and E, which are the perfect elements to naturally strengthen, nourish, and enhance growth. Try it out, ladies!
