Health supplements

My wife has been in conversation with some of her friends about health issues. One of the topics they discussed was about certain health supplements which were supposed to be good. Hence we also bought some of these to supplement our diet, to see if it would have any benefits. For Father’s day, my wife and the children also bought be a protein supplement, so I could add this into my smoothies.So the things below are some of the things which I have added to my diet to see if it will improve my exercise ability – and first impressions is that it does seem to be working.

We have started sprinkling the Linwoods milled food supplement into our oats and other breakfast biscuits. It adds a little bit of crunch and texture to this, and is supposedly nutrient-packed.

One of the things suggested by my wife’s friend was the Chia seed, which apparently was a food the Aztecs had. It has supposedly many different health benefits, including being high in Omega 3, fibre, and protein, and able to help with maintaining normal blood cholesterol levels. We add this into our smoothie each day, so we get that extra boost in our smoothies.

In order to improve my exercise tolerance and build muscles, I have added in protein-rich foods. This has been through protein-rich breakfast foods below, as well as the protein supplements in the smoothies.

What I’ve found so far:

I am now able to do the 50 reps with the Ab roller (10 reps per cycle, with 1 minute rest in between each cycle) more easily. In fact, recently I have been able to full extend and hold for 2 seconds for each rep to truly push my abs and upper limb strength. With each day, I am finding I am able to do this more easily. So clearly something is working well. And it feels great!
