Super Supplements?

In the next series of The 11 Blade we are going to be taking on nutritional supplements.  The good, the bad and the ugly. As an orthopedic surgeon specializing in the care of Division 1 and professional athletes I am often besieged with requests for an opinion on nutrition and supplements. As a rule, my paradigm in regards to this matter is generally that an athlete with an appropriately balanced natural caloric intake to match performance output will do every bit as well as an athlete on commercially manufactured protein and vitamin supplements.  Yet, I am not so naive as to think we can put the cows back into the barn when it comes to performance nutrition, so there should be a happy medium where an athlete gets the majority of their needs from completely natural sources and whole food materials, while back-filling nutritional needs with supplements and commercial products. Stay tuned.  We’ll be going over some basic rules of the road when approaching and/or selecting supplements and we’ll give some do’s and dont’s.  I will also provide you with some medical “secrets” that will save you a lot of money when visiting your local GNC (or whatever your chosen vendor).

      Finding a good supplement is one of the vital fatrocs to living a healthy life. For me, this vitamin has always proven to be the most effective. It just gives your body what it needs and it doesn’t have all of those terrible side effects as all of the poorer ones. It’s also one of the less costly ones out there.

  1. “Appreciate you sharing, great article.Much thanks again. Awesome.”

      I just found out I have type II diabetes and I’m collicteng all the good sense information I can to attack it on all fronts. Thanks for posting this interview and really good questions for the doctor. I am taking all of the things you talk about in this video chromium, magnesium/calcium, alpha lipoic acid. MSM, too. I really like the idea of using a cinnamon stick in the tea. And may I say, you are a great host. I’m going to check out your site.

  2. It is a subject matter that is definitely close to my heart. Kind regards!

  3. I’m extremely impressed together with your writing abilities as neatly as with the format in your blog. Is that this a paid topic or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to look a nice blog like this one these days..

      Vasotropin does indeed work. Time it right with your meals. Eat a high carb meal 2 hours beorfe you hit the gym, and take vasotropin 15 minutes beorfe that meal. Right around the 2 hour mark, you will feel your skin tingling, especially in your hands. Vascularity is very much increased during the workout. More bloodflow = more delivery of essentials to your muscles plus I’m not as sore the day after.

  4. Thanks for the post.

  5. I have not checked in here for some time as I thought it was getting boring, but the last several posts are great quality so I guess I will add you back to my everyday bloglist. You deserve it my friend 🙂
