S U P P L E M E N T S

For any person seeking peak performance and maximum results from their workouts, supplements are an absolute must. This applies to professionals, amateurs, occasional and weekend athletes.

Three Types of Vitamins

There are three types of vitamins: (1) synthetic, (2) crystalline or extract, and (3) natural or cold-processed. Click here to see the differences and chromatograms of Shaklee's natural supplements vs. synthetic ones.

Why take supplements?

  1. Much research indicates strongly that supplementation can improve ahtletic performance. This applies to both world-class professionals and the weekend athlete.
  2. Studies show that many active people have nutritional needs that cannot be met by diet alone.
  3. Supplements apply to women especially because they generally do not consume enough calories to guarantee even minimal requirements for any vitamins and minerals.

A continual low intake of essential nutrients will make it totally impossible to perform at your best.

Research has clearly shown that being low, not deficient, but low in various nutrients can seriously affect your ability to perform. Studies also show that athletes need more of these nutrients than the general population and in the case of some nutrients, much more. For instance, runners and weight lifters need well over twice the protein of the average non-exercising American.

Consider this question: If these athletes need at least twice as much protein as a non-exerciser, what are your requirements as a weekend or occasional athlete? Obviously if you do any sort of athletics, your nutrient needs are going to be well above the average American.

Study after study supports the fact that many athletes, occasional, weekend, amateur or professional, are low in a number of nutrients vital to their performance. A number of studies support the fact that food supplements can actually enhance athletic performance. In view of everything said above, in my opinion, food supplements are a must for optimal sports nutrition at any level of activity.

Supplements and Diet

I am not advocating a diet of junk food with a handful of supplements for dessert. Supplements cannot make a healthy diet out of one that is laden with fats and sugar. You should have a good diet that is supercharged with food supplements.
