If you havent already watched limitless the movie get off your backside and get to the movies or video stores and rent it right now. This film shows the potential of brain hacking the new way in which people use drugs to enhance physical and mental strength believe me what is shown on the movie can be done but obviously in much less powerful way it is the movies after all and they have a habit of sexing things up for your pleasure.
The movie is based around a tired writer who seems to be depressed like most writers I have met who stumbles upon his ex wifes brother who has access to one of the most powerful drugs known to man this drug enhances brain and body function in such a way that he is able to outhink and out perform everyone he has ever known and meets.
Obviously these new found powers come with dnagers and the drugs with side effects but to find out the rest you just have to watch the movie.
Regardless to say to say this movie is one of the most moviating fiilms I have watched this year and I will be posting reviews of supplements that help to enhance brain and body power okay we probably wont get the results our friend in the movie has got but even a 10% improvement puts you ahead of the population as a whole.
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.
When ever you eat with family nowadays be mindful to watch for the way in which our eating habits have changed over the last 15 years or so before the era of mobile telephones and the internet, plus 100 tv channels and a multimedia centre in every room.
Never in history have we had it so good as we have it today in terms of luxury and technology how ever there is always a pay off to be had for lifes luxuries. Pne of the major pay offs is the fact our dogestive systems are all over the place we just dont take the time to relax and chew and digets a meal throoughty whether its answering the phone or watching the latest tv show on the box. Years of bad meal habits takes a toll and the body cant extract the nutrients it needs to keep us alive and for vital repair especilly if you exercise regularly.
There is a miracle way to improve these symptoms and problems caused by years of bad meal habits and the first sloution is to chew gum just before or after undertaking a lrage eal which helps the body prodcue the acids it requires to digest the meal you are eating or have eaten the significance of this cannot be underrated for long term health and happiness.
After a few weeks your gut should be able to handle the food you eat and extract nutrients required the importance of this strategy cannot be underestimated and you should google chewing gum health benefits to see what other beenfits it can confer on your health.
Although there are many supplement companies out there 95 percent rely on cheap crap and marketing psychology to sell you shit you don’t need. I used to buy into the fact that people are low in certain nutrients but the more you ate exposed and buy into this crap if your intelligent enough you realise that you don’t need much of the crap they are selling but good food and drink.
But you maybe asking yourself that when I go onto forums many bodybuilders say this stuff works and they agree with it what the hell they even post photographs well be very careful with these idiots it is all marketing pr rubbish and supplement companies have massive budgets and thousands of reps on these sites pushing all of the crap under the sun do not believe them.
This leads to another problem of where do I get unbiased reliable information that works without anybody trying to profit.
All I can tell you is I have tried hundreds of supplements and I will upload the pictures to prove it the crap I have put my body through defies belief I know when I post the pictures supplement companies are going to be falling over themselves to get me to review them.
I will give my opinion in detail on the industry the crap lies and deceit and places you can discover the truth as there are good people out there still it just remains to be seen how long they remain honest without selling out to the powers that be that said one vitamin I whole heartedly can say works is vitamin c yes standard good old big c which has been proven time and time again to have a massive effect on health.
Apparently if you isolate amino acids from dairy which ate supposed to work in synergy they throw off your neurotransmitters now I am no doctor but it makes complete sense that nature is perfect and its when you start screwing with it you always get problems I will dig further into this.
I will never be taking green tea extracts and protein together again ever I had liver numbers done and everything was fine bit as soon as I took any supplemental with green tea and I tried a few with protein pain started I looked into this online and I am by no means the only one facing these issues I feel these extracts need to be investigated further to see long term potential damage in humans.
I was urfing amazon and saw a book in the sports section and downloaded it to my kindle software which I run on my htc desire I was blown away a book about running which had the potential to change my outlook and viewpoint in such a way that to say it was unimaginable was an understatement. The book is amazing and I will be posting a review on it soon but just one tip I want to leave out of the book is about a staple food that the aztecs consumed called chia seeds these seeds give you all sorts of wonderful nutrition and pack a punch in terms of energy try them out and do a search around the internet for loads of information on this soon to be wonderfood.
Here is a review and recipe of the new superfood REVIEW <——————- Click for review
Despite what supplement companies and natural moralists tell you there are side effects with supplements and I have had a few. My worst experience to date is with large amounts of green tea extract which gave me liver pains I tried a different supplement but it was the same I advise anyone looking to start a serious workout regime to get a balanced opinion of the supplement you will be taking and also a second opinion off a doctor.
That aside I can tell you that if it wasn’t for supplements I wouldn’t look or feel half as good as I do and they are vital for highly stressed people and people who are eating a sub optimal diet as most of the UK and the usa are.
PHD supplements has always been close to my heart because they are the first companies line of sports nutrition products I ever tried a few years ago when I got interested in sports and training. I remember the first product I ever bought was their whey powder which as I hadnt tried anything else was exceptional only later did I learn that all protein powders are not the same.
Anyway as I have a little weight to lose I bought lean degree as a part of an offer with a protein powder last year but never tried it I have bought fat burners in the past such as maximuscles etc but will write about them later on some time.
Anyway lean degree is a supplement that really really surprised me in more ways than one and cortisol or stress response is the major reason I have come to love this set of tablets.
At first I stacked (more than one supplement) lean degree with an iforce product this week which was a range of their prewprkout but I got a twinge in my liver which I put down to lean degree so what I did was split lean degree and the pre workout by iforce and learned it may have been down to mixing them together but as far as taking them seperatly I have been fine.
So I took two capsules of lean degree before a morning cardio routine I have just started and the feeling you get from lean degree kills all other fat burners for the simple fact you feel so focused it doesnt give you any anxiety or overheat you but what I certainly did notice was the need to urinate which I put down to the diuretic in the product.
After looking at the ingrediants it is very clear these guys know their stuff and the doses are just right for example they are very careful about using too much of any ingreiant so everything seems to work in synergy. The reason I say this is I have taken green tea suppllenets and companies just load them up with the cheaper ingrediants and you dont get the feeling I got with this supplement. As for fat burning I will be keeping a log along with all of my other supplements on this site for you I have taken a lot of supplements in the past and will post pictures of my collection it is somewhat of an obsession of mine.
The reason I feel PHD have done a careful job of formulating their products is they are a UK company and so have to be very very careful with consumer feedback becase if even one problem is found the UK authorities come down very very hard and could potentially pull all products that is why supplements that are manufactured int he UK are put thrugh a much more rigourous testing process.
