Laura's Supplement Philosophy
I believe in supplements. They supplement your diet. I hadn't been consistent with supplements in the past, so I was 99 percent consistent with my supplements this time. Without a doubt, it made a difference.
I had never taken branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) before, and I had always struggled with recovery. I couldn't go day after day after day, hitting it hard, then get up and do it again and still be able to give 100 percent effort. I think I was lacking BCAAs. They've made a world of difference for me.
Every supplement does something different, but that doesn't mean your body needs everything. Everybody needs a multivitamin. Protein powder is great to have. My body digests whey protein the best, but somebody else might digest a different protein best. So, it depends on how you digest different foods and what works for you.
Laura's Supplement Stack
I take supplements to fill in the gaps when I lack nutrients from whole foods, and to aid recovery. Supplementation is great for helping my general wellness and recovery, but there is nothing like a good night's sleep and plenty of hydration to keep me feeling strong and on track.
