Choosing the Right Protein Supplement for Your Body's Needs

shutterstock_545587324.jpg

Protein is an essential macro nutrient in your diet and the central building block of all human muscle fibers. It's highly important to supplement your diet with high quality protein supplements, especially when engaged in heavy training or conditioning, as the extra protein helps to rebuild the muscles you're breaking down and straining in the gym. Most protein supplements are whey based, which is an ingredient derived from milk and dairy. Some people can't tolerate dairy products, or prefer not to, and so soy and other vegetable-based protein alternatives exist on the market.  Due to the carbohydrate content, sometimes a gluten sensitivity must be considered when reviewing protein ingredients as well.

Protein Supplements

All Supzilla stores carry a broad range of premium protein supplements and powders, including our famous bulk scoops by the pound. Which one you choose to consume depends heavily on your body type and current fitness goals. Part of the Supzilla promise is the custom advice you'll get from our fitness and nutrition experts here in the store about what supplements you should be taking to reach your goals. We thought we would share some insights on protein supplements from our store pros for easy reference.

Protein Isolates

Protein Isolates are highly concentrated servings of quality whey protein that contain more grams of protein with less carbohydrates, lactose, and fat content. Isolates are fast-absorbing and ideal for post-workout refueling. Rapid digestion means generating free amino acids more rapidly when your body truly needs it. While protein isolates are absorbed and digested more quickly, the protein molecules and amino acids are also quickly spent, making isolates a short term solution for protein supplementation. Our pros often recommend Rule1 brand proteins due to the clean formula, high quality of ingredients, and variety of blends and uses. 

Casein Protein

Casein on the other hand, digests much more slowly in the body. Casein is the most abundant protein in milk and forms a gelatinous structure when broken down in the stomach, hence the slow absorption and depletion. We recommend casein protein supplements for meal replacement shakes and pre-bedtime snacks, as the nutrients stay with you longer and satisfy the body's need for raw building blocks longer than isolates.

Protein Blends

Of course, the most common approach to quality protein supplementation is a healthy blend of pure protein isolates with slow digesting casein. A healthy blended protein will offer the best of both worlds, with fast absorbing isolates for immediate digestion and other slow-moving casein proteins to last for a few hours after consumption.

The Benefits of Liquid and Powder Vitamins over Capsules and Tablets

Benefits of Liquid and Powder Vitamins

There are a few different options for those looking to take vitamin supplements. Most of us are familiar with the capsules and tablets available over the counter at any pharmacy or supermarket. However, the are tangible benefits to taking vitamins in liquid or powder form and the nutrition experts at Supzilla can help you make the right call.

 

Benefits of Liquid and Powder Vitamins

When taking vitamins in capsule or tablet form, your body has to do the work of breaking them down into a fine powder before absorbing the vitamins into the bloodstream. When you take a liquid or powder form mixed with water, you’ve already done all the work. The body absorbs these vitamins much more quickly and efficiently in this form and we often recommend these to anyone who struggles with swallowing pills or stomaching additional supplements.

We carry a variety of liquid vitamin options, like Max Effect, as well as popular powder vitamin brands like NutraKey Envie. Both offer the same vitamins and nutrients found in their tablet counterparts, but with better absorption.  

As with any vitamin, you should take this with food.  It’s easier on your stomach and helps with absorption into the body. It doesn’t really matter what time of day you take your vitamins, just that you stay consistent and take them at the same time each day.

 

Are Capsule Vitamins Bad?

It’s not that vitamins in capsule or tablet form are inherently bad. It’s better take some kind of vitamin than none at all. But, for best results with capsules, we recommend you seek out well-designed time-release capsules that slow the absorption process down and allow for maximum absorption into the body.

 

If you have any questions about what vitamins and supplements to take for your overall health, the expert staff at any Supzilla location can help you identify your best supplement stack with the right formula for you unique bodily needs.

Take Ownership of Your Health with these Vitamin Supplements from Blue Bonnet

Vitamin Supplements from Blue Bonnet

Living a healthy, vibrant life is about more than just eating clean foods and hitting the gym (although those are both important too!). The real secret to taking full advantage of your dietary health is to fuel your body with key vitamins and nutrients to keep your immune system in peak condition and your metabolism burning the right fuel. At Supzilla stores, we carry a full line of key vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to supplement your diet and fuel your transformation.  

Check out some of our favorite recommendations from Blue Bonnet below and visit your local Supzilla to stock up today!

 

Vitamin D3

While Vitamin D3 is essential to the healthy of your skin, bones, and overall mood and energy, and while our primary natural source of D3 is the sun itself, many people don’t get enough. People who work indoors, especially away from windows, often find themselves deficient in Vitamin D3 and find that supplementing with Vitamin D3 supplements from Blue Bonnet covers the shortage, offering them improved moods and increased energy throughout the day.

 

Biotin

While biotin, also known as Vitamin H, can be found in many natural foods, it’s a key nutrient for hair, skin, and nail health. For this reason, it’s a popular supplement among men and women looking for that extra sheen to their hair and nails.

 

Methylcobalamin (B12)

Methylcobalamin, also known as Vitamin B12, plays an important role in the production of red blood cells and is necessary for anyone with anemia. Vegans often lack sufficient B12, as it is most often absorbed through animal-based food products. B12 deficiency often manifests as low energy, mental sluggishness, and tingles in the fingers. Many people find that B12 is a great supplement for treating hangovers, as well.  

 

Iron

Iron is a key ingredient for optimal health and nutrition, as it is found in all of your cells and functions in the production of red blood cells. Iron supplements are important for women to take regularly, as well as anyone who experiences regular blood loss or those on dialysis.

 

Whole Food Natural Vitamins

When in doubt, a good wholesome multivitamin should cover all of your bases. There are variety of multivitamin formulas on our shelves, each with its own specific mixture for your body type. Taking a daily multivitamin, especially those from natural, whole food sources, can be a great way to supplement anything you may be lacking in your diet.

 

If you have questions about what vitamins and supplements to take for optimal health and wellness, our expert staff at Supzilla can assess your needs and recommend a daily regimen to fulfill your health goals.  Come browse the shelves and chat us up, we’re always here to help!

Natural Testosterone Boosters that will Get Your T Flowing

natural testosterone boosters

Testosterone is certainly one of the most important hormones in a man’s body, responsible for regulating energy, stamina, strength, and even mood and sense of wellbeing. It’s the driving hormone that makes a man physically a man. Low levels of testosterone can make you feel sluggish, depressed, and even experience a lack of sexual interest.

Testosterone levels naturally lower as men age, but there’s also a growing awareness of low testosterone across the culture compared to previous generations. Reasons for this drop have been speculated to relate to dietary changes, chemicals in our environment, and other psychological factors, but the reality is that many men feel a need to boost their testosterone to compensate.

If you’re looking for natural testosterone boosters to help you build muscle or recover your vigor, Supzilla stores carry a few of the best natural testosterone supplements on the market.

 

Hard Gainer’s M-Stak

The M-Stack from Animal Training Packs is a non-hormonal anabolic supplement designed for hardgainers and power lifters looking to increase muscle density with enhanced protein synthesis and nitrogen retention. This is a powerful muscle building supplement that naturally increases free Testosterone and strength.


 

NutraKey Antler Test

There’s a certain appeal to invoking animal extracts for boosting testosterone, it’s primal and speaks to us on a subliminal level. NutraKey’s Antler Test is a proprietary blend of natural ingredients, including New Zealand Red Deer Antler Velvet which contains dense Insulin-like Growth Factors (IGF) as well as vitamins and minerals. Combined with staples like Yohimbe, Antler Test promises to speed up muscle growth and naturally boost free testosterone levels within the first few week.

 

NutraKey DAA (D-Aspartic Acid)

When it comes to naturally boosting your testosterone and growth hormone levels without the unwanted byproduct of elevated estrogen production, few natural products can compete with the proven effects of d-aspartic acid. Found naturally in the testes, pituitary gland, and the hypothalamus, d-aspartic acid plays a central role in the production and regulation of male hormones like testosterone that directly enhance athletic ability, size, and strength.

 

MyoPCT Hormonal Optimizer

MyoPCT from MyoPharma Sports Nutrition uses a clinically tested formula of hormonal optimization to specifically raise natural progesterone levels while blocking estrogen production.  This helps to raise free testosterone levels in the body and maintain prostate health. Speak with one of our Supzilla reps for more details about how to cycle on and off of this supplement.
