Today, the internet and shops are filled with different kinds of supplements, so why should you choose us and our products? Who needs to take supplements and what are the effects?
Dietary supplements are generally taken for two purposes, either for health reasons or for performance-enhancing purposes as the need for certain nutrients may increase during exercise and physical activity. There are a number of different varieties but the most common are protein, amino acids and vitamins or minerals and these are usually sold in the form of powders, capsules or tablets.
It is important to keep in mind that these are supplements that should be taken as a complement to a varied dietary intake and must never replace regular food or drink. See it as a flexible and economical way to enhance your diet.
Who should take supplements?

Dietary Supplements for Exercise
If you train a lot and hard, you increase your turnover of a number of different substances. Both by burning them and evaporating when you sweat, for example. Therefore, your need increases and by eating right you can satisfy to some extent. However, studies have shown that today's food production, which is more and more industrialized, has shown that the nutrient content has decreased and also food that grows in the gut has a reduced level of minerals and vitamins due to agriculture being leached. An easy way to compliment this and your food is through supplements.

Vitamin SupplementsVitamins are something the body needs and many of the varieties are vital to us. However, we need to add these through food or supplements to achieve the daily needs because our body cannot produce most of them.
Essential vitamins are 13 in number and are divided into two categories:
Water soluble - which are the eight different B vitamins and vitamin C. Should you get a deficiency in any of these, you will notice them fairly quickly and then need to refill because these varieties the body can not store itself.
Fat-soluble - this includes vitamins A, E, K and D and unlike the above-mentioned varieties, the body can store these in excess and therefore it becomes more difficult to get a deficiency. p>
Vitamins are needed in relatively small amounts but still need to be included in our daily diet in order not to risk any form of deficiency disease. They are also needed for many different processes that take place in the body. For example, they interact with the enzymes in the body, the production of hormones and an antioxidant effect on the whole body. These are things that are important for health and become even more important during stress such as exercise.
