Why Do We Need to Take Nutritional Supplements?
Why do we need to take nutritional supplements? The short answer—because they are invaluable tools to help you reach our health and fitness goals easier and faster.
Could you build a house without power tools? Absolutely. Would you want to? I sure wouldn’t. With power tools, the job would be SO much easier and would get done FAR faster. This is the perfect analogy for nutritional supplements when it comes to weight loss.
There are a ton of nutritional supplements out there—and even more opinions about which ones are best and/or necessary. My goal is for you to feel less overwhelmed and more educated on supplements after this post, so you can make your own determination about whether any of them are right for YOU or you can skip them entirely.
To start, “supplements” are not called “essentials” or “replacements” for a reason. They are not usually a must—they are helpful tools. They are not meant to override healthy eating or exercise, but complement them.
Here are the three main things that nutritional supplements can do for you:
- Make nutrition easier for you
- Fill in gaps in your nutrition
- Enhance the normal functionality of your body
In the video below, I go through our favorite Beachbody nutritional supplements that you might want to consider. ALL of these supplements are all natural and have been independently tested to do what they purport to do.*
- Shakeology—This is the supplement for you IF you find yourself struggling with nutrition. It contains optimal levels of macro and micro nutrients and can be used as a meal replacement or healthy snack for those times when you’re on the go or you find yourself munching on unhealthy stuff because of cravings or convenience.
- Performance Energize—This pre-workout supplement is designed to boost your energy if you’re dragging. Forget Red Bull—this stuff is WAY healthier for you.
- Performance Recover—This supplement will help combat that post-workout soreness and tiredness you might be feeling, especially if you’re new to working out or are doing one of Beachbody’s more difficult workouts.
