Repeat after me – Supplements are NOT steroids

Repeat after me – Supplements are NOT steroids

We know what you’re thinking, and no, supplements are not all doom and gloom and they definitely don’t need to be poked into your booty, because supplements are not steroids.

We understand where the confusion came in, both start with an “S”, both tie into fitness and exercise but there is a big difference between the two.

We could drone on for hours about how great the right supplement can be for you, but you don’t want that, so let’s get started with the first of 5 exceptional supplements to kickstart to banging body in a healthy way.

A good multivitamin is the key to achieving your health and fitness goals!

We live in a world where you can’t escape pollution and stress. Sure if you live in the Amazon, surrounded by peace, tranquility and  giant snakes, a multivitamin won’t make much difference to your existence, but you don’t and you need all the help you can get.

Start yourself off with a multivitamin in capsule form for easy absorption into your system. Be sure to have something handy to hide the taste (ie. a delicious and nutritious meal) and avoid taking them if you’re poppin’ pills because multivitamins don’t play too well with antibiotics. Lastly, be sure to buy your multivitamins from a reputable company, because your health is more important than saving a few bucks.

Tune in next time for not one but two supplements that will change the way you live your life.

FYI – be sure to consult you preferred health professional to find the right multivitamin for you, after all, you are unique which is just the way we like it ;).

When you want the D and Omega 3

When you want the D and Omega 3

We see that you’ve been anxiously waiting for this next set of tips, or you’ve just happened to stumble upon part 2, either way, we’re happy to have you back 😉

Today we’ll be focusing on the next two supplements to get you on the road to a hot and healthy bod!

And without further adieu, let’s introduce you to the D! Swiftly remove your mind from the gutter because we’re talking about Vitamin D(3).

So why do you need the “D” when the sun so graciously gives it to us? It’s simple, it doesn’t give us enough, especially if you don’t have the luxury of lazing about on the beach all day. We need Vitamin D to create those busy bodies that prevent diseases, encourage strength and boost your immune system. Ideally you’ll need 2,000 to 4,000 IU but chat to your doc about your recommended dosage.

Maki your way to our next supplement, Omega 3! You guessed it, Sushi! These heroes of the California roll, salmon and tuna, are an excellent source of Omega 3! Sushi can get a little pricey, especially if you want to eat it everyday, and the last thing we want is for the novelty to wear off. Luckily, there’s a pill for that! You can get all the immune boosting, hair strengthening and nutrient absorbing Omega 3 fish oil supplements. This will ensure that your sushi treats are saved for those special occasions (as they should be).

Make sure you get a good quality fish oil supplement because the last thing you need is heavy metals and pesticides in your body, perhaps have a chat to your doctor for a supplement that he or she would recommend.

Stay happy and healthy, till next time.

All great things come in three’s


To part three of our supplement journey. This is the final leg when it comes to supplements, it’s sad we know, as the end can sometimes stir up emotions. But don’t fret, because we’ve got lot’s to say, it’s not that easy to get rid of us.

Moving swiftly along, let’s get started on the final set of supplements that will improve your life and your health, Probiotics and Magnesium.

Probiotics are in essence a natural, live bacteria. Yes, you heard us correctly… Bacteria. Not the kind that wipes out a country though, so bring back your screams of “PLAGUE” because probiotics are an excellent source of natural bacteria that is essential for healthy bodily functions. You can find them in fermented foods and craft beers, and not only do they boost your immunity, they aid in digestion and combat the bad bacteria in your body. As they say, a happy gut results in a happy body.

And finally, we’d like to introduce you to Magnesium. We’re sure you’ve heard this element thrown around in conversations a few times because it’s a biggie. It is one of the most important minerals for you body as it is crucial for the functioning of over 350 enzymes! It also great in assisting with muscle aches, insomnia and anxiety, resulting in a happier you!

That’s it for now so get your BodyBack by staying happy and healthy!
