Do you drink pre workout drinks tea coffee or cola did you know that dehydration is epidemic in western countries with the excess salt in adult and childrens diets our kidneys find it difficult to cope with all of this excess sodium and dehydrating drinks we consume daily. Symptoms such as migraine, weight gain, depression and insomnia could just be a sign of poor hydration but before you reach for those bottles of water be aware that you should rehydrate very very slowly and make sure you use an electolyte drink with pottasium or sodium in there.
The reason I posted this thread is when I was overweight I started drinking more bottled water as a suggestion with low mineral content and most of my weight just dropped of I feel this was due to a combinsation of washing the excess sodium out of my body and signalling the body that I was getting enough water so my body retained less which I heard is due to the bodies built in mechanism during periods of drought to hold onto excess water for emergency use.
Your brain needs a lot of water and considering we are more that 85% water it makes good sense to replace that stagnant water our bodies hold onto with something better for our health.
So start sipping clean water throughout the day and see if that makes a difference after a few weeks I would love to hear your rehydration stories about this subject.
I recently ordered a supplement from a very cheap looking company and boy was I in for a surprise let me first explain why I bought from them when I normally go for more expensive brands of supplement. I was looking for Basil which I heard is exceptional for after workout cortisol I tried L-thenaine and had some luck but not consistent especially depending on the pre workout supplement I had taken at the time.
Well boy was I in for a surprise after ordering the supplement arrived with a somewhat ordinary looking label and packaging hmm first impressions werent good but as I have learned packaging isnt everything and besides I was paying for the supplement and not the packaging.
I took a capsule and within 20 minutes I felt like I have never ever felt before in my entire life I felt GOOD so good in fact I rested like I havent done in months that very afternoon. Swanson has won me over and any body builders or people who have high cortisol and stress or anxiety linked to diet or excessive caffeine use need to get only and try the full spectrum basil by this company you will be surprised pleasantly I would as far as to say this is one of the most effective supplements I have ever taken in my life and the fact it worked so quickly speaks volumes for this company.
Regardless to say I will be trying A LOT more of this companies upplements because if these capsules work this well I am hoping the rest will replace what I use at the moment which I will be discussing later on in this blog.
If any of you guys have experience with supplements from Swanson or any company which isnt highly marjeted but provides a high quality product please do give me a shout.
