Summer is upon us! Naturally, we want to enjoy outdoor physical activities such as hiking, swimming, or biking. It’s a great time for us to step up our workout routines and get into shape. Unfortunately, some of us don’t know where to start; but we do know we want to feel physically fit and see results.
LifePharm provides two dietary supplements that may aid your workouts whether you participate in casual, low-impact activities or are an elite athlete. Recent health science research has shown evidence of several ingredients that may help improve your muscle strength and stamina. One is called Ashwagandha (found in IMMUNE+++) and it may help boost your cardiovascular endurance, metabolism, and strength.
How Ashwagandha Supports Metabolism
Ashwagandha is a member of the family of herbs referred to as “adaptogens.” The term “adaptogen” is applied to an herb with phytonutrients (found in fruits and vegetables) that may help support metabolism when the body is perturbed by physical or mental stress. Adaptogens additionally help the body adapt by:
Normalizing system functions.
Developing resistance to future stress.
Elevating the body’s functioning to a higher level of performance.
Adaptogens were commonly used in traditional cultures to support stress relief, brain health, and adrenal health. Traditional Ayurveda advocates the use of Ashwagandha toward “bala,” which means “strength” in the Sanskrit language. Furthermore, Ashwagandha’s roots are classified as a “rasayana” (rejuvenator), and have been used traditionally to support a revitalizing effect on the body, and generally creating a sense of well-being.
How Ashwagandha Supports Cardio Endurance
Both modern health science and traditional Ayurveda writings report many potential health benefits of the Ashwagandha herb (Withania somnifera, also known as Indian Ginseng). The herb helps to support immune functions and has a rejuvenating effect via its possible interplay with the nervous system, endocrine system, cardiopulmonary system, and the energy production system. Studies have also shown it stimulates respiratory function, creating smooth muscle relaxation.
Simple Proteins and Amino Acids Improve Muscle Building and Strength
LAMININE is a perfect natural source to get the essential and nonessential amino acids you need for a healthy and vibrant lifestyle. The supplement contains a serving of easily digestible proteins and free amino acids from the fertilized egg, pea, and quality fish source which quickly enter the bloodstream, and can enhance workout performance. Amino acids and proteins have been shown in numerous studies to enhance muscle strength and help support muscle building.
Simple proteins do not require long digestion processes, but complex proteins from meats (beef, chicken or pork), require more time and energy to digest. Muscle fibers absorb amino acids from the blood during exercise. Taking supplemental protein and amino acids 30-60 minutes prior to, or soon after, working out increased muscle mass when exercise routines were performed over a six-week time period.
An analysis of 22 studies totaling 680 subjects showed that both trained and untrained subjects could increase both muscle mass and strength by consuming supplemental simple proteins and/or amino acids.
LAMININE AND IMMUNE+++ - A Natural Source of Amino Acids
As summer arrives, you’ll want to get into shape and build up your own stamina, strength, and well-being. Try adding LAMININE and IMMUNE+++ with Ashwagandha to your daily activities (walking, gardening, mowing the lawn) or before/during your workouts. LAMININE’s proprietary OPT-9 blend provides a natural source of all essential and nonessential amino acids.
IMMUNE+++ provides an exclusive vitamin C source that is two times more bioavailable than a typical vitamin C, with a powerful blend of mushrooms and traditional and clinically reported health benefits. Both these supplements have components that can support your physical strength and improve your health.
