These 2 Supplements are Brand New to Get Fit NH
Dean and I started Get Fit NH with the one desire: To help people in New Hampshire get healthier. We know that if they are healthier they will automagically become happier, and the world needs more happy.
I would like to bring to your attention 2 supplements, while new to Get Fit NH, are not new to Dean and I. Beverly International, also the makers of UMP - the best protein anywhere, developed a product that combines Magnesium and Zinc; ZMA 2000. It's main benefit is to help you with recovery and sleep. The second of these supplements is from Live Extension. Florassist Balance is a probiotic. Delivering healthy doses of good bacteria to your insides.
Why you should take ZMA?
Magnesium is an important dietary mineral, and having a deficiency usually is associated with poor sleep quality. While some sleep aids leave you feeling sleepy and foggy, magnesium works to help relax your muscles so you can fall into deep sleep and stay there. Therefore, you don't need to worry about getting sleepy after taking a magnesium supplement. This year's "Sizzlin' Summer Slimdown Success Guide" puts it this way: "Magnesium (ZMA): Another one of my go-to recommendations to help combat stress. It’s not only great for stress, but it’s an important mineral that’s required for more than 700 biochemical reactions in your body! It can help with sleep, your digestion, and aches and pains, too. This is great to take right before bed."
I can't say it any better than Coach Dean did: "Like all of the ones we recommend, I have been taking ZMA for years - What more do you need to know! :)"
Florassist Balance Probiotic -“Bugs in my belly!” Yikes.
You may think I am losing my mind. But rest assured, these tiny little creatures I am referring to are probiotics; the bacteria and yeast that live in your gut. While it might not be appealing to think about, these “good guys” are supposed to be there. They naturally populate our intestine and protect us from harmful bacteria and substances that lead to inflammation and infection. Not so bad after all. But what else do probiotics do?
- Boost Immune Health: Approximately 70% of our immune system exists within our digestive tract. As we are in the midst of flu season, keep your immune system strong through a healthy gut.
- Manage Intestinal Distress: Used in treating irritable bowel syndrome symptoms, such as constipation, diarrhea, cramping, bloating, and gas.
- Potential Influencers of Chronic Disease: Innovative research studies are being completed on how our gut microbiome affects the development of chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and mood disorders. So far, results have been promising in the potential role probiotics can play. Stay tuned as evidence-based recommendations develop.
- Using Probiotics while taking an antibiotic treatment will help maintain the beneficial bacteria.
Why do I need more?
These ‘good’ bacteria actually fight off the ‘bad’ bacteria that can make us sick and that cause yeast or urinary tract infections. We also need a balance of these bacterias to keep our immune system healthy and promote good digestion.
Here is my take: Our American style of eating tends to feed the bad guys and leave the good guys hungry. I give the good guys an edge with this probiotic.
While we are not saying you need to buy these from us, we've done lots of research and this is what we use at home. Dean and I want to pass that along to you.
To Your Best Health,
