Supplements and Beverages for RunnersSupplements and Beverages for Runners

Everyday, no matter where I’m going, I always see a number of runners. They’re all ages, sexes and sizes; many are keeping pace as they are running in groups, and some are just running alone. Running can be a great way to stay in shape, and it’s one means that I use. Running burns up calories so it’s very important to stay properly fueled and hydrated. That’s why I drink plenty of water and take daily supplements.

University Hospital, located in North-eastern Ohio, happens to be where my family doctor is located, so I receive their monthly newsletter. Many of the articles quote doctors and/or reference articles written by a doctor. I found this article on the UH website recommending the top 5 supplements and beverages for runners.

Being a runner means properly fueling yourself. Follow these tips to help you stayed fueled before and after your run.

Top 5 Supplements for Runners

  1. Calcium sources. Calcium helps strengthen bones so you can avoid the risk of stress fractures. It also plays a key role in muscle and nerve function.
  2. Fish oil. Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce the risk of exercise-induced asthma as well as alleviate overall muscle soreness.
  3. Iron. The higher the intake of iron, the more readily available hemoglobin is to carry oxygen to the muscles.
  4. Vitamin D. This is crucial in aiding the uptake of calcium, providing bone strength.
  5. Whey protein. This is an excellent source of all of the amino acids you need to build lean body mass. The benefit of whey over other protein sources is its ability to be absorbed quickly, so it’s good for post-run and for other workouts.

Being an Independent TriVita Business Owner (ITBO), I know personally how many of these supplements help my body stay fueled, as it’s been part of my regiment for quite some time. I’m a loyal user of nutritional supplements, and I’ve been taking nutritional supplements my entire “adult” life. Yes, I started way back in my early adulthood, and have continued to take supplements daily ever since.

I have studied the differences between manufacturers and have found the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to supplements. It’s not like I just started last week, nor is it like this is the only company I have purchased from. So I do have a track record!

Being an avid user, I’ve come to find out that not all supplements are the same. That’s why I have switched to TriVita, and have become an ITBO. Currently, I take TriVita’s VitaDaily as my multi-vitamin, Omega3 Prime for fatty acids, and Essential D for vitamin D. I have also included Vitamin B12 to keep my energy level up.

I know how these products have helped me keep my body in good working order, and that’s why TriVita will continue to be my number one source for supplements. If you’d like to receive a FREE $50 Gift Card to get started on your health and wellness journey, click on the previous link.

New Vitamin SupplementNew Vitamin Supplement

There’s a new multi-nutrient complex daily vitamin supplement that’s more powerful than you average nutritional supplement. Read the following article to learn more about this new vitamin supplement.

According to TriVita’s Chief Science Officer, “We need a multiple nutrient supplement every day to serve as a foundation for health and to combat the nutrient demands of a stressful life.” And that’s exactly why TriVita has created this new and more powerful nutritional supplement.

Below is information on Wellavohâ„¢, the new super-nutritional supplement. The information is provided by TriVita’s weekly health and wellness report.

How Nutrients Help Relieve Stress
Stress is defined as change that is seen by your body or mind as a threat – large or small, imaginary or real – or a change in your environment that triggers a rapid use of your reserves. Stress creates a demand on your resources. Soon, these resources become exhausted and you get sick.

Distress can come from your environment, your body or your mind. Rather than being just a single event, stress accumulates over time from all three sources. It strangles the joy and pleasure from your days and nights. It makes you miserable, and then it makes you sick. Once you are sick, stress keeps you from responding as well to medical care. Yes, stress is a killer!

Nutrients to the rescue
The opposite of stress is homeostasis. So, while stress is constantly trying to pull you apart, homeostasis is constantly working to put you back together. Homeostasis is the priority process your body uses to combat stress.

Vitamins, minerals and other nutrients are essential for homeostasis. If we have the nutrients we need at the moment we need them, we will thrive! Conversely, if we do not have the proper nutrient base in our system every day we will suffer loss of energy, poor mental performance and an increased risk for disease.

The word supplement means an addition to something to make up for a deficiency. All supplements are an important addition to a healthy diet. They make up for the deficiency we face because of poor nutrient density in our foods. They also help out when we miss the mark of diet perfection.

Supplements are no substitute for good dietary choices. We simply must commit ourselves to eating a healthy diet. As you review your food choices for the past week, ask yourself, “Did I eat the right amount of fruits and vegetables every day?”

  • 5 servings for children
  • 7 servings for women
  • 9 servings for men

If you can say “yes” – congratulations! If you are like most people you did not reach that goal. And, if you are like most of us, you did not eat all of your fruits and vegetables from an organic source; so, the fruits and vegetables may have been of low nutrient value.

We need a multiple nutrient supplement every day to serve as a foundation for health and to combat the nutrient demands of a stressful life.

A new supplement
Staying on top of our nutrient reserve is important. Our body makes millions of new cells every day – heart cells, brain cells, bone and blood cells. Stress kills millions of vulnerable cells every day. Every time a cell dies it should be replaced. If you do not have the right amount of nutrients to construct a new cell, you will either make an incomplete cell or none at all. The outcome is bad in either case; so, we really need to keep all nutrients on board at all times. This is why we created Sonoran Bloomâ„¢ Wellavohâ„¢ (wel-lah voh), a new multi-nutrient complex for men and women.

The destructive forces of stress come from inside and outside your body. The nutrient complexes of Wellavoh can help you build a bulwark against stress as it tries to pull you apart. Wellavoh supports homeostasis as the innate wisdom of your body tries to keep you functioning at your peak.

One more reason…
Perhaps an even more important reason exists for maintaining a robust supply of nutrients in our system daily. According to a recent report, chemical switches on our DNA are activated by nutrients. If a single nutrient is missing at the critical moment it is needed, one of these chemical switches will fail. This results in a change in our DNA that promotes disease – for up to three generations of our children! So, it is vital that we and our children have our nutrients available every day to reduce the impact of stress while promoting vitality today, health tomorrow and a solid wellness foundation for generations to come!

The life expectancy of people has increased considerably during the last 50 years. To make sure that your senior years are lively ones it’s imperative that you lead a healthy lifestyle through a balanced nutritional diet. It’s also vital to get enough sleep and exercise on a regular basis. Taking nutritional supplements plays an important role in reducing the risk of disease as well as supplying the body with anti-aging nutrition, improving its energy and health.

Finding the proper vitamin supplements that fits your needs can be difficult. Not all vitamin supplements are the same. For example, all-in-one or one-a-day type vitamin supplements are not the best source of vitamins and minerals. They cram all the required vitamins and minerals into just one small tablet. In all reality, it’s a great marketing concept, but a waste of time and money.

It’s imperative to be aware of the fact that the nutritional requirements of men and women does differ from one another. Be sure to find out which vitamin supplements are right for your sex. It’s been stated by several nutrition experts that women 30 years and older need to take supplements containing nutrients that help stabilize the female hormones, whereas men ideally need nutrients that benefit prostate health. Whether male of female, you will not find the proper nutrients in an all inclusive multiple vitamin.

To ensure that you’re taking the proper vitamin supplements it’s wise to seek the advice of a nutritional expert. If you do not know one, surf the Internet in the area of nutrition, or nutritional supplements. There are plenty of web sites that offer great products and free advice about what vitamin supplements your should be taking. Make sure you research the pros and cons of any vitamin supplements before spending your hard earned money.

Vitamin and Mineral SupplementsVitamin and Mineral Supplements

According to experts, the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables are five servings for children, seven servings for women and nine servings for men. If you’re like most people you probably never reach your goal on a daily basis. And, if you’re like most of us, your fruits and vegetables did not come from an organic source; so, it’s possible that the fruits and vegetables (if you happened to eat them) may have been lacking in nutritional value.

Most nutritionists will agree that staying on top of our nutrient reserve is important. Since our bodies make millions of new cells every day: heart cells, brain cells, bone and blood cells, it’s important to replace a cell every time a cell dies. Again, experts say, if we don’t have the right amount of nutrients to construct a new cell we will either make an incomplete cell or none at all. In either case, the outcome is bad. So in all reality, we need to keep all nutrients on board at all times. This is I, and many nutritionists suggest a multiple vitamin and mineral supplement.

So, what are Supplements: According to some science experts, “The word supplement means in addition to something – to make up for a deficiency.” And many health experts suggest vitamin and mineral supplements should be taken in addition to a healthy diet, because they make up for the deficiency we face due to the poor nutrient density in our foods. Supplements also help out when our diet is less than perfect.

The health experts also suggest the simplest way to help support your nutrition is to take a general multi-vitamin and mineral supplement that provides a broad range of nutrients at standard nutritional levels.

However, they maintain that you keep the following points in mind:

Some supplements contain very high doses of certain nutrients. When you take nutrients in extremely high doses, you are no longer in the world of nutritional supplementation and have passed into the riskier world of megadose treatment.

Calcium and magnesium minerals are very bulky, and few multi-vitamin/mineral supplements provide the daily requirement. These minerals generally must be taken in the form of additional pills. Note: It isn’t possible for your body to absorb a day’s worth of calcium in a single dose. At least two doses are necessary.

The most common nutritional deficiencies are calcium, chromium, folgate, magnesium, vitamin b6, vitamin c, vitamin b12, vitamin d, vitamin e, and zinc.

Through my research, it seems very few of us are probably so deficient of these nutrients as to show symptoms of outright malnutrition. However, subtle deficiencies may increase the risk of a number of conditions. For example, insufficient intake of calcium and Vitamin D may increase your chances of developing osteoporosis, and inadequate folate and Vitamin B-6 may speed the development of heart disease.

We know that food contains many substances other than vitamins and minerals that may enhance your health. It’s a well known fact that supplements probably won’t make up for bad dietary choices. We all know the importance of fruits and vegetables, and we must just learn to eat more of each. If we can be honest with ourselves, we don’t have perfect diets. So, it is important to add a good vitamin and mineral supplement to our diet.
