In our last blog we began talking about three of the most essential workout supplement ingredients you need if you’re looking to maximize your performance and recovery. We aren’t only interested in selling discount supplements, we’re also interested in educating our customers on best pre and post workout practices and supplement ingredients. Today we’re back with 3 more supplement ingredients you should be looking for.

B6 and B12: Some studies show that your B vitamins and nutrients are more easily depleted when your body is under stress from high levels of activity or environmental factors. The B vitamins should be included in both pre and post workout supplements as they help your body form red blood cells as well as making energy from food. Overall, your B vitamins help you fine-tune and regulate your body processes that are essential for you to feel strong during your workout.

Tart Cherry (Powder or Juice): This is great for your post workout routine because it has a similar effect on your body as NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories). You can use it for pain, muscle damage, and even as an anti-inflammatory. You’ll find phytochemicals in tart cherry that are very health protective.

BCAA Blend: BCAA stands for branched chain amino acids and this consists of three important ones: valine, isoleucine, and leucine. You should be using a BCAA blend supplement for both pre and post workouts as this will help you build muscle and repair damaged muscle tissue after those intense workouts.
