Supplements and Recommendations


I am a sponsored athlete with PEScience. PEScience is a quality focused company that creates supplements with effective dosing and ingredient profiles. 

 

I recommend checking examine.com for any questions about any specific supplements and their efficacy and the studies related to their dosage and effects.

Here is a photo of the supplements that I currently use on a daily basis. And the caption that accompanied the photo which I posted on Instagram on 1/22/2017: 

 

-I currently have tendinitis in my left forearm and I'm just prone to joint pain and injury in general. TruCurcumin (Turmeric active ingredient) has shown to help with reducing inflammation. I also take Genoflex, another joint support supplement. 

-Prolific is the best preworkout I've ever tried. The ingredient profile is incredible. It has 325mg of caffeine in each two scoop serving but I don't feel jittery at all even though I've had sensitivity to too much caffeine in the past. It has two sources of caffeine. It also has a nootropic called Cognizin. I feel so focused and I also get the best pumps from Prolific. Cotton candy and sunrise both taste great but I drink it pretty quickly before heading to the gym that I don't really get to savor it. 

-I take Aminos intra-workout and during cardio. Mango sunrise flavor tastes great and is so refreshing mid-work. 

-Post workout, I like to have a spinach shake with Select protein and fat free milk. I blend it up and can't even taste the spinach. Quality comes first with PEScience. 

-I've been taking Erase Pro+ for a little over a month and as advertised I feel much leaner. The active ingredient has been shown to reduce subcutaneous water retention. I was most skeptical about this one yet even though the scale weight hasn't changed much in the couple of months, I look visibly leaner. I recently purchased a second month supply. I just now went back to examine.com and looked at the active ingredient and I could probably do a separate post just on Erase Pro+. It multiple studies showing a notable effect in reducing anxiety and cortisol and increasing power output in trained and untrained subjects. Super interesting...

-I haven't started taking ZMA yet and not pictured is creatine which I take daily. 

-Supplements aren't magical. Diet and training are still the foundations and cornerstones of building muscle and an aesthetic, healthy and strong physique, however they can be helpful. I recommend checking out the examine.com website before taking any supplement and examining the efficacy and studies regarding its use and dosage. Being informed and making objective decisions are key!
