Give Your Body a Boost With Supplements

As an active woman, you need to have plenty of fuel to stay energized through a busy day and workouts. Yes, eating a well-balanced diet certainly helps, but there are ways to accelerate fat loss and rev up a metabolism.
The trick of the trade is supplements. I know what you're thinking, "Supplements are only for men," wrong. Sure, certain supplements are known for helping men increase muscle mass, and a lot of it. But just like there are muscle building supplements, there are also fat burning supplements out there as well.
Supplements may or may not be on your radar, and that's fine. If taking a vitamin or mineral to enhance fat burning all while helping recovery time isn't for you, that's your decision. There's no pressure here to try any of these supplements or products, but if you are interested in taking your health and fitness to the next level, I'd listen up.
Consider this your information center for supplements and how they can benefit women. I personally take all of these supplements and have seen amazing results (I wouldn't write about them if I didn't).
Anyway, let's get down to business and figure out which of the following, maybe all of them, are right for you and your fitness goals.
If You're Wanting to Lose Fat - Then fish oil is for you. Fish oil has two essential omega-3 fatty acids that every woman needs on a daily basis. I'm sure you think I'm crazy for recommending "fatty" acids, but hear me out on this one.
Not only does fish oil reduce inflammation, enhance muscle and joint recovery (from workouts), reduce risk of heart disease and other diseases and cancers, but it also has a chemical that turns off fat storing cells and turns on fat burning cells! I knew I'd get your attention with that last one.
If You're Wanting to Build Lean Muscle - I wanted to stress the word lean in there for you so there's no confusion. You will not get big and bulky. As a matter of fact, it's kind of the opposite. With whey protein, you will develop lean, sexy muscles. Instead of muscles popping out of your skin like body builders, you'll start to see the definition of your muscles in the places you want to see them, such as your abs, triceps, and even quads. Oh, and you'll build muscle where your fat used to be, say bye-bye arm giggle.
If You're Wanting to Increase Your Energy - Look no further than green tea extract. In it, there is a chemical called, sound it out with me, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). When you feel energetic, it's because endorphins are released into your body. Normally, our body naturally fights off these endorphins, along with other adrenaline causing chemicals. EGCG prevents our bodies from fighting off the adrenaline. So simply put, green tea extract allows our bodies to thrive on the natural occurrence of adrenaline. (FYI - To get the equivalent of the supplement, sip on five cups of green tea a day).
Like I said before, if you're not comfortable taking any supplements, then don't. But if you do think it's for you, be sure to consult your doctor to be sure you will benefit from these supplements and come to terms together on which would be the best for you.
Supplements can give you that extra boost in the gym to add lean muscle or speed up your metabolism in order to burn the maximum amount of calories. Whichever your goal is, you're sure to benefit from one, or all, of the supplements above.
