Supplementation - know the Essentials!
BY STEVE BORN
Hammer Nutrition is all for “eating healthy,” but we know it's not enough. As an athlete, you place enormous physiological demands on your body. This means that your nutrient requirements—just to maintain health—are much greater than the average person, especially in today’s more toxic, polluted, and stressful world. However, the goal isn’t to just maintain health at a minimally acceptable standard; it’s to achieve supreme health. In addition, you want to get the absolute most out of your body so that it can do what you want it to in your workouts and races, while you achieve greater success in the process.
That’s where an intelligent, high quality supplement program comes in; it plays an undeniably vital role in helping you achieve optimal athletic performance and overall health. Hammer Nutrition’s “Daily Essentials” supplements—Premium Insurance Caps, Race Caps Supreme, Mito Caps, and EndurOmega—provide the widest range of benefits for both athletic performance and overall health purposes. They are the cornerstone of the Hammer Nutrition product line, and they should be the foundation of your supplement program. Take them every single day, whether training or not, and enjoy the tremendous benefits they provide.
WHAT THE DAILY ESSENTIALS DO FOR YOU
Replenishes vitamins and minerals, which athletes and active people deplete in greater amounts than sedentary people, to optimize overall health.
Enhances support for the entire body by supplying a wide range of antioxidants for the neutralization of free radicals and the cellular destruction they cause.
Provides key substrates to enhance efficient production of energy.
Provides support for mitochondrial health, an absolute necessity for enhancing athletic performance and overall health.
Supplies the body with the omega-3 fatty acids—EPA and DHA—which are closely involved in numerous areas of human health.
PREMIUM INSURANCE CAPS
Our diets, no matter how good we think they may be, most likely do not provide enough of the micronutrients needed to prevent a deficiency, let alone help optimize overall health. That’s why taking a multivitamin/mineral supplement is wise; it helps bridge the gap between what you should be receiving and what you’re actually getting from your diet.
For a high quality vitamin/mineral supplement, you need to look no further than Premium Insurance Caps. Unlike many products that contain inadequate Daily Value (DV) or Referenced Daily Intake (RDI) amounts of nutrients (which are only the minimal standards for preventing nutrient-deficiency diseases), Premium Insurance Caps is formulated with Optimum Daily Intake (ODI) amounts of the highest quality vitamins and minerals, which supplies your body with higher amounts of nutrients—the quantities it needs for optimal health. Also included in the formula is an impressive array of complementary nutrients and digestive enzymes.
RACE CAPS SUPREME
For 30 years and counting, Race Caps Supreme has been the athlete’s supplement of choice, withstanding the test of time in a market flooded by other products that don’t deliver results as promised. This powerful blend of nutrients, headed up by Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and idebenone, aids both athletic performance enhancement and overall health—a one-two punch formulated for hard-training athletes, but also highly beneficial for everyone 30 years and older. Race Caps Supreme stands alone as a safe, effective formula for:
Higher energy levels, without the unpleasant stimulant side effects
A noticeable increase in endurance
Enhanced recovery and less muscle soreness
Antioxidant support for optimal immune system function
Key nutrients that help optimize cardiovascular system health
The combination of nutrients in Race Caps Supreme works synergistically to provide you with numerous athletic and general health benefits, unmatched by any other athlete-specific supplement. All people will benefit from consistent use of his product, and it's an absolute essential for athletes.
The Mito Caps formula is based on the studies of Dr. Bruce Ames regarding mitochondrial functioning, aging, deterioration, and regeneration. Mito Caps contains the two nutrients used in these landmark studies: acetyl l-carnitine (ALC) and R-alpha lipoic acid (R-ALA), as well as several other complementary nutrients. The patented Enzyme Enhancement System™ is also included to aid in complete absorption of the nutrients.
Not only are ALC and R-ALA extraordinary antioxidants, they play a key role in helping mitochondria (the energy producing organelles in every cell of your body) work more efficiently and stay healthy. The importance of maintaining optimal functioning of the mitochondria is eloquently stated by Dr. Bill Misner: “The longer you can stimulate the lifespan or health of the mitochondria, the longer you will live and the better you will perform in endurance events. The athlete who has the most healthy/efficient active mitochondria is the athlete who performs at their best.”
The fish oil that comprises the Enduromega formula greatly enhances endurance because it increases the absorption rate of the fat-soluble nutrients coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) and idebenone, the two key substances in Race Caps Supreme that are intimately involved in energy production. In addition, the essential fatty acids found in Enduromega support improved lung function (including alleviating asthma symptoms) and the utilization of oxygen, both highly desirable benefits for enhanced athletic performance.
More benefits of the fish oil and omega-3 fatty acids found in Enduromega:
Defense against cardiovascular disease; every day more and more research comes out confirming this. Fish oil helps to lower blood pressure, reduce elevated blood triglyceride levels, maintain arterial wall elasticity, and prevent blood clotting.
A positive impact on brain function and mood, including the alleviation of anxiety, insomnia, mental fatigue, stress, depression, and more.
Beneficial for your eyes—helping to improve vision and aiding in the prevention in age-related macular degeneration.
Helps maintain healthy skin and bones.
Plays an important role in metabolism regulation and weight management.
The combination of the Hammer Nutrition Daily Essentials provides a tremendously wide range of benefits that support optimal athletic performance and overall health, a range that no other supplement combination can come close to matching. Premium Insurance Caps, Race Caps Supreme, Mito Caps, and EndurOmega are products that everyone, athlete and non-athlete alike, will benefit from; they should be the foundation of anyone’s daily supplement program, including yours!
