supplements

i've typically been rather sceptical of supplements. i'd heard (and been inclined to believe) that most hard packed supplements won't dissolve properly in the digestive system. i've read research to that effect as well. furthermore, the endurance athlete's supplement needs are different from the "normal" person and need a different supplement altogether.

when you go down the supplement road you can end up taking a lot of pills. i recommend two hammer products: premium insurance caps and carlson norwegian fish oil. the premium insurance cap is a powdered multi-vitamin designed for maximum potency and absorption. it is also specially formulated for the endurance athlete. the carlson norwegian fish oil is an excellent and convenient source of essential omega fatty acids. they are also the highest quality, tested and free of contaminants that can plague fish oil supplements. the benefits of the fish oil are numerous, including:

  • Increased absorption of the important energy-producing substrates CoQ10 and idebenone
  • Prolonged endurance from increased fat utilization and enhanced oxygen utilization
  • Cardiovascular system protection from reduced blood pressure and lowered cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Support for body fat regulation
  • Aid in improving brain function
  • Anti-inflammatory properties to reduce post-workout soreness
