With 2019 just having started, we thought we’d take a moment to try and help you understand how supplementation and great nutrition can help you to realise your New Year’s resolution.
Whether you want to improve your diet, lose weight or learn a new skill, all of these can be made more attainable by better understanding nutrition and how what you eat and drink (or don’t!) can impact your wellbeing.
Perhaps, the most common goal when it comes to New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight and have a healthier figure. A great first step can be to change what you’re drinking on a daily basis.
Instead of your regular coffee, tea, or soft drink, why not make the switch to green tea? A cup of green tea contains zero calories, and can in fact kick start your metabolism and encourage the body to burn energy. Furthermore, you can relax and enjoy further health benefits from powerful antioxidants and soothing theanine which is contained within the leaf.
To further upgrade your green tea’s weight loss power, why not add raspberry extract? Ketones in raspberry leaves have been shown in studies to increase fat breakdown and help to release the hormone adiponectin which supports the regulation of glucose levels.
Of course, having a great diet is only one component of maintaining a healthy weight. I won’t patronise you by talking about how important exercise is, but let’s focus on nutrition and supplements that can help you to push yourself harder and achieve better results.
Kicking things off with pre-workout nutrition can help you workout for longer and stay energised. Ashwaganda is a good choice to boost overall stamina and endurance, while this natural substance can also help to relax the mind and keep you focused.
Protecting your joints and keeping them flexible and strong should also be a priority. Consider a formula which contains a broad range of nutrients to keep yourself supple. Don’t forget to ensure you consume plenty of high-quality protein in order to fuel growth and development.
Another very popular new year’s resolution is to learn a new skill, which requires a different set of considerations – the first of which is memory.
Some studies have shown that the herb Ginkgo Biloba may prevent memory loss and help you retain learned information. It does this by enhancing circulation and increasing blood flow to the brain.
To further boost cognitive function, Acetyl-L-Carnitine (ALCAR) can help improve focus and provide more mental energy. Becoming a particularly popular nootropic supplement in recent years, ALCAR works by helping the mitochondria in your brain to burn energy and run at higher energy levels. A real powerhouse!
If you’re thinking about looking for an all-in-one solution, why not explore Natural Stacks CILTEP, a natural nootropic that combines artichoke extract and forskolin, to create a potent, long last effect to support learning.
