Protein is often referred to as the “building blocks of life”, and for good reason. From our hair to our fingernails to our muscles, protein is the glue that holds each cell in our bodies together and makes up many major hormones and antibodies. That's why getting enough protein in our daily diets is important. New evidence suggests the exact amount we need depends on a host of factors: our diet, age, health, activity level and - for pregnant women - whether we’re eating for two. Here we outline how much protein we need to eat, how to calculate our needs and which people may need more.
Pre-workout supplements can be one of the most effective exercise supplements available on the market today. Whether we’re looking for an extra burst of energy after work or a pick-me-up in the morning—pre-workouts can provide us with much needed stimulation and energy to make the most of our sessions. Although they can benefit our workouts and bring us closer to our goals, some supplements in this category can have harmful ingredients and side effects that can hinder our progress and negatively affect our health.
We’ve covered the benefits of vitamin B12 here, so stressing the importance of vitamin B12 may be redundant. In short, vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient, meaning the body needs it to remain healthy. It must be consumed through the foods we eat, since our bodies are unable to produce it on our own. It’s used for so many processes, including red blood cell creation, DNA synthesis, energy production, and brain and nerve cell protection. If we don’t get enough B12 in our diet, we run the risk of developing a nutrient deficiency, which unfortunately many people around the world encounter. Signs and symptoms of a deficiency can include headaches, confusion, weakness, fatigue, and anemia.
Creatine monohydrate is considered one of the top ergogenic aids on the market today. Despite its wide usage, popularity, and research surrounding the supplement’s benefits, female athletes may sometimes be misinformed on the usage, safety, and purpose of creatine as an exercise performance aid.
