3 Of My Favourite Women's Best Supplements
Written By11 Jan 2018
As promised, here is a blog post about my top 3 supplements from Women's Best- WHY I use them, WHEN I take them and my favourite flavour recommendations!
#1: Women’s Best BCAA’sBCAA’s is a supplement I can’t go past! I drink BCAA’s daily, during my training sessions, and I also love to sip on them throughout the day. In short; BCAA’s stand short for “Branched Chained Amino Acids”, and they are essential nutrients in the body as your body cannot synthesize them. There are three BCAA’s; L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-Valine and these must obtain these through your diet.
WHY I USE BCAA’S
BCAA as a supplement can be easily used during exercise to reduce fatigue, accelerate recovery, reduce muscle soreness, and improve the use of fat for energy, reduce fatigue and improve both mental and physical performance. BCAAs are well known for triggering protein synthesis.
WHEN I USE BCAA’S
BCAAs are best to take around your workout. Enjoy BCAA’s pre, during or post-workout. I enjoy my BCAA’s during my workout as I have my pre-workout before and my protein supplement after I train. If your goal is to build mass, also consider taking a dose of BCAAs first thing upon waking to help stop the muscle breakdown that is turned on during your night of fasting while you sleep.
I also use BCAA in recipes like healthy icy poles or jelly, or sometimes as a snack drink during the day.
WOMENS BEST FLAVOUR RECOMMENDATION
Slightly obsessed with the Strawberry Kiwi flavour ATM!
#2: Women’s Best Whey Protein
Protein is another go-to supplement for me!
To sum it up; Proteins are made out of smaller molecules called amino acids. Some of these amino acids can be produced by the body, while we must get others from food. Proteins are the main building blocks of the body. They’re used to make muscle, bones, organs, hair, nails and skin. Proteins are also used to make enzymes, hormones, neurotransmitters and various other molecules that serve important functions.
WHY I USE A PROTEIN SUPPLEMENT
If the above spiel wasn’t enough, proteins not only Supply your body with essential nutrients , it Boost overall health and immune system & prevents various disease, Increased Strength, power, muscle mass and boost physical performance , Reduce muscle soreness after training, Enhance fat loss and build muscle through enhanced protein synthesis, Aid healthy growth for toddlers. Whey protein It contains all of the essential amino acids and is easily digested (if you are not lactose- or casein intolerant). It helps boost energy and can reduce stress levels.
WHEN I USE PROTEIN SUPPLEMENTS
You can get your protein from foods, which is why I don’t have a protein supplement every day- as I sometimes have my meal straight after my workout. Using a protein supplement within 30 minutes after training when you don’t have time for a meal though really helps obtain all the benefits from the nutrient! I also love having a protein smoothie in the mornings if I am lacking time to cook a breakfast!
WOMENS BEST FLAVOUR RECOMMENDATION
White Chocolate Coconut flavour. It is amazing!
#3: WOMENS BEST “ALL-GREEN-EVERYTHING” POWDER
This product is my little health nutrient booster. Aside from taking the Women best multivitamin in the morning- the all-green everything powder is a go-to in terms of nutrient support for me! It is highly concentrated of superfoods for maximal nutrient supply and full of all the micro nutrients your body needs. It’s also rich in antioxidants, free from additives ad 100% natural. Just the way I like it!
WHY I USE A SUPERFOOD-POWDER
Some of the reasons to why supplementing your micronutrients is so important, include:
Reason # 1: nutrients are depleted in our soil- we need supplementation to stay healthy!
Reason # 2: commercial processes decrease nutrient content in foods- another reason why nutrient boosters are essential
Reason # 3: synthetic additives & pollution lead to the need of more nutrients in our bodies to manage damaging compounds that enter our system.
Reason # 4: exercise increases nutrient needs- If you train and lead an active lifestyle- you will need more nutrients in your body
WHEN I USE THE ALL-GREEN EVERYTHING POWDER
I love taking my all green- everything in the morning! I mix 1 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water, juice from half a lemon and a serve of All- Green Everything. Mix and drink up! It doesn’t taste amazing, but it’s a great kick start for your day!
