Earlier this week I posted about one of our top supplements – L-GLutamine – which has got me thinking – what fitness supplements are our top picks for performance, endurance and focus?
Here at Herbs Online Shop, we work with a lot of people interested in fitness – from clients wanting to lose a few kilos, to experienced fitness professionals and even athletes. I have collated our top picks from Herbs Online Shop to give you a clear insight into which products are best and why. But before we get to that, I’d like to share some insight into how you can take simple steps today to improve fitness, lose some kilos and start to get some more energy back.
The Power Walk. One trick that is under-estimated in its power to improve fitness is a simple walk. Increasing your step count on a daily basis by moving your body with a little exertion (instead of a casual stroll in the park) can really do wonders for your fitness, and in just a short period of time too. A walk in the park is wonderful for mind and soul, but if you’re wanting to get some serious calories burned and start to see your weight shift and more energy throughout your day, set aside 15 – 30 minutes a day for a power walk.
Track your progress to improve your fitness. Tracking progress through photos, measurements and food diaries is a great way to improve your fitness. The better your diet, the more your body can perform at it’s best. Food is fuel and tracking your intake is crucial for ultimate fitness performance. In addition to measuring your progress, I would also measure your water intake. Staying hydrated is our number 1 overall health tip, but it’s important to keep in mind the more exercise you do, the more water to drink. As a general rule, for every hour of exercise add an additional litre of water into your daily intake.
Focus. Stay focused on your goal. With fitness goals it can be hard to stay on track if we are not really sure what we’re working towards. Relying on motivation won’t get you out of bed on cold mornings to get a workout in – but discipline will. Stay disciplined, which is not always easy, but it’s much easier with a clear end goal and a big enough “why”. Ask yourself “why do I want this?” “Why do I want to create this experience?” “How will my life change?” When we are focused on our vision for the future and make choices in alignment with that vision, we soon find ourselves acting as that person and living the experience we desire.
Now, let’s have a look at some supplements:
PRE WORKOUT HERBAL
Pre-Workout herb formula will not only help your workouts but you’ll likely discover lots of other beneficial effects such as increased energy, improved circulation and reduced stress. This is due to our incredible ingredients which are of premium quality and are completely natural ingredients. Our Pre Workout contains green tea extract, siberian ginseng, korean ginseng, peppermint and rhodiola.
POST WORKOUT HERBAL
For anyone wanting to support healthy, comfortable joints and increase healthy blood flow to the body’s connective tissue. Our post workout is especially beneficial for runners and in high-impact activities.
Our L-Glutamine powder has no fillers and is naturally fermented, and most importantly 100% pure pharmaceutical grade fine-powdered amino acid. It is suitable for vegans, non-GM, gluten free, no artificial additives, free from colours, flavours & preservatives. L-Glutamine also reduces inflammation and provides relief for symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. Glutamine plays a key role in protein metabolism and cell volumizing which helps metabolize body fat and therefore supports new muscle growth. Because of glutamine’s anti-catabolism ability it prevents the breakdown of your muscles.
PLANT BASED AMINO ACID PROTEIN POWDER
Our plant based protein powder is not only delicious, but it provides 46% of daily protein requirements. Available in cocoa and vanilla flavour, our protein is also built with digestive enzymes to improve protein and mineral bioavailability and is a source of minerals including potassium, calcium, iodine, iron, magnesium and zinc. Containing certified organic ingredients and certified by ACO, it is the premium fitness protein powder for health conscious people.
MENTAL ALIGNMENT ESSENTIAL OIL
Mental Alignment Essential Oil is used as a mental stimulant and to also elevate mood. Muscle Alignment includes oils traditionally used – and in part scientifically verified – to boost memory, relieve muscle tension and sluggishness, assist mental clarity and sharpen focus. Mental Alignment is blended by expert herbal practitioner Charlotte Mutoro from 100% pure essential oils. It has been used successfully worldwide to enhance motivation, business, academic and general performance, and as a rub for joint and muscle tension and stiffness. Blend ingredients include: Bergemot F.C.F., Rosemary, Black Pepper, Ginger and Cajeput, Citrus bergamia F.C.F, Rosmarinus officinalis, Piper nigrum, Zingiber officinalis and Melaleuca leucadendron.
