How to get the most out of your supplements

Today we look at How to get the most out of your supplements as when it comes to using dietary supplements timing is everything and with a market saturated with all kinds of pills, powders and liquids you need to know when to take them to get the most out of it.

For the purpose of today’s article we’re only going to look at three items, pre-workout, pump activator, protein powder and multivitamin pills as these tend to be the most commonly used supplements in the industry.

Multivitamins

Multivitamin’s are a great addition to anyone’s stockpile to ensure we’re getting what we need if our diets aren’t up to scratch. The timing of when to take vitamin pills can depend on the specific vitamin supplement and your individual needs.

You should always refer to the instructions provided with your specific vitamin supplement. Some supplements may have specific instructions regarding timing or whether they should be taken with food. The reason why this is, is because some vitamins are fat soluble. meaning they require dietary fat for optimal absorption. Taking them with a meal that contains healthy fats can enhance their absorption. However, water-soluble vitamins can typically be taken with or without food. Remember you should always consult with your General Practitioner to ensure they meet your needs and don’t have any negative impacts.

Pre-Workouts

This one is an easy on as it’s in the name, but what’s so special about pre-workouts and why are they a sought after supplement? Beyond the boost of energy they provide often with either natural or lab made stimulants Pre-Workouts provide a range of added supports to help you while exercising.

Consuming a pre-workout can provide your muscles with the necessary nutrition during exercise, helping to prevent muscle breakdown and support energy levels. Aim to take your pre-workout supplement 30 minutes to an hour before your workout to allow for digestion and nutrient absorption.

Pump activator’s can consist of further supplements that open up blood vessels and help prolong stamina. They may also include BCAA’s and EAA’s to aid your muscles during your training session.

Protein Powders

The post-workout period is one of the most critical time to consume protein supplements. During exercise your muscles undergo stress and micro-tears and consuming protein immediately after your workout can help initiate the repair and recovery process. Take your protein supplement within 30 minutes of completing your exercise session.

You also want to locate a protein powder that has all the required amino acids also known as BCAA’s and EAA’s as these are vital for muscle recovery as they are the building blocks our cells need to repair, recover and grow.

Including protein supplements between meals can be beneficial for individuals who struggle to meet their daily protein requirements solely through whole foods.

Having a protein shake or a protein-rich snack as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack can help maintain a steady supply of amino acids to support muscle growth and repair throughout the day.

Consuming protein before bed can be particularly beneficial for muscle recovery and growth during sleep. While you rest, your body enters a prolonged fasting state, and taking a slow-digesting protein supplement, such as casein protein, before bed can provide a sustained release of amino acids throughout the night. This can help prevent muscle breakdown and promote muscle synthesis while you sleep.

It is also important to note that taking protein supplements isn’t just for body builders and has wide ranging benefits in all sports with recent studies confirming that when you take your protein helps maintain weight and aid recovery in all sports. This is especially important for sports that require weight classes, if taken at the wrong time the protein won’t provide the results your after.

As everything in life, timing is everything!
