Nutritional Supplements

prograde-supplementsWith all the heavy marketing of supplement companies you’d be forgiven for thinking that you need lots of supplements to achieve your goals.

Really, there are only a few most people need to take. The most important part to get right first is your diet.

Supplements can help aid your diet and your health and performance, but they can’t replace a poor diet.

With that said, there are a few I take and would recommend to my clients.

Prograde vgf-men_zoomPrograde vgf-women_zoomA General Multivitamin – This helps cover any deficiencies you may be lacking from your diet. There are good and bad multivitamins. Click on the images below or go to www.nigel.getprograde.com to get a high quality one.

 

Prograde EFA IconOmega 3 Fish Oil – there’s numerous health benefits to taking a fish oil including joint health, brain function and metabolism. It can also help aid fat loss too.

prograde complete meal replacement lean_zoomMeal Replacement – Although supplementation isn’t a replacement for a poor diet, there are times where convenience can take precedence.  If eating enough or at regular intervals is a weakness for you, consider a meal replacement.  Many people skip breakfast entirely which can be a mistake.  A meal replacement can be a simple fix to that problem.
