Would you buy a car if it had the world’s best engine – I’m talking 6.0 litre supercharged V8! – but had the world’s most unusable steering?! The answer should be no because you are going to crash that car. We want and need some degree of versatility in cars and most things in our lives… You wouldn’t buy an oven that could ONLY cook at 450 degrees. So we should all be treating our bodies with a little bit more versatility; and I’m not just talking about skipping leg day (you all know we have done that before). Metaphors aside, I’m talking about making sure we get the right mixture of vitamins and minerals to keep our bodies, immune system and our bones functioning at max capacity.
We already SUPP. We already have a regime of pills, powders and drinks we take every day. So we need something that does everything in one go. The best (and easiest) way to add even more supplements into our already packed routine is to take multi-vitamins. Great multi-vitamins are the perfect way to make sure our bodies performing at max capacity. And please remember that multi-vitamins are not in exchange of anything else. Just because I make sure my immune system is working the best it can doesn’t mean I can ignore common sense. We are just taking general wellness supplements to give ourselves another layer of support.
So here they are, my top five multi-vitamins and supplements that are the KEY to having all-around healthy body and minds.
Firstly, we have MYOVITE by Myogenix. This multi-vitamin has been specifically formulated for athletes and health enthusiasts to help eliminate nutritional gaps in our diet and supplement regimen. It does exactly what we want. One of my favorite benefits of MYOVITE is that it helps enhance performance, joint support, liver support, cardiovascular support, and even our probiotics. This one-stop multi-vitamin is the perfect way for us to enhance our all-around wellness.
Next, we have Sambucus Elderberry Gummies by Nutriumph. Don’t let the cute name fool you, they are packed full of antioxidants that help slow down the effects of oxidization in the body. All while giving us the essential vitamins and minerals to help bridge the gaps in our diet. The gummies are a 3-in-1 blend of black Elderberries, Zinc, and Vitamin C that works together to help strengthen your body’s natural defenses and support your immunity. These ‘wonder gummies’ are receiving rave reviews and I can tell you they taste great as well.
Third on today’s list is the awesome ImmunityMax by Performax Labs. It has an amazing list of key ingredients including Zinc, Vitamin C, and Vitamin D3. Additionally, to give our bodies the extra boost of energy we need it is packed with NAC, Black Elderberry, and Echinacea Root. The team at Performax has spent a lot of time researching their formulas and adding in an Antioxidant Immune Support Blend with over 28 ingredients! Ingredients like Oregano Concentrate, Turmeric Concentrate, and Blackcurrant Extract amongst many more. ImmunityMax is a fantastic option for our multi-vitamins.
Moving on we’ve got Mens Multi + Test by GAT Supplements. As you can probably tell from the name, this Supplement is targeted at us guys. Mens Multi + Test is a complete daily supplement containing vitamins and minerals, but with the added edge of Tribulus for testosterone support. GAT supplements have created the perfect multi-vitamin to help eliminate all of our nutritional gaps. They have also added Tribulus to help support healthy testosterone levels – essential for those of us hitting it hard day in and day out. Do not miss out on Mens Multi + Test!
Finally, on our stacked list of multi-vitamins, we come to Musclevite by High-Tech Pharmaceuticals. This complete and Hi-Potency/Performance Multivitamin is a fantastic vitamin and mineral supplement. It was created with higher doses of key vitamins and minerals, as well as Sports Nutraceuticals (L-Carnitine and Beta Alanine). The blend of nutrients is different from other multivitamins/mineral supplements and is specifically formulated for athletes and active adults. I wanted to finish up my top five list with Musclevite as it is definitely the heavy hitter of the multi-vitamin world!
You cannot go wrong with any of these five vitamin and mineral supplements. They are all tried and tested, and give our bodies the extra layer of support us Gym Rats need to sustain our intense lifestyles. This is a topic not talked about enough in our community as it is just that important. So make sure to start/adjust your multi-vitamin game and you will feel the benefits in every aspect of your life.
Get after it and I’ll see you all next time!
