First let me say that a supplement is just what the name implies, to be added to your nutritional intake and is not a replacement for it. But as I've been blogging we are all different body types, so you need to eat for what works for you and because of this some food groups will be avoided....remember we don't want to stress our bodies with these irritants. This is where a smart program of supplementation will work for you, so read on to see if it can be added in your individual needs and let the K-Man take all the confusion out of your choices. A) Body Fat; EGCG found in green tea taken before moderate exercise will help burn more of your mortal enemy as it boosts your metabolism. An added bonus, its been shown to prevent cancer and improve heart health ( look for 900 mg/day of green tea extract to fulfill your needs or found of course in our favorite beverage, Green Tea!!) B) Repair; Vitamin C to protect your cells from the free radicals produced during exercise, also it helps heal wounds and is key for the production of the collagen found in ligaments/tendons. (up to 1,000mg/through out the day or found in citrus fruits, sweet peppers, broccoli, kale and brussels sprouts)
C) Low Endurance; studies show by taking Quercetin it helps lower the oxidation of LDL particles which would reduce blood vessel constriction, thus you are able to do more cardio, sweet
a extended time trial to improve your memory or attention. C) St. Johns Wart; tests reveal that it indeed works to beat the blues but the herb also interferes w/ other classes of drugs that you might be taking. D) Valerian....tests show no improvement in your sleep time.
