Strong, Sexy And Shapely: A Supplement Program For Women!

Here is a supplementation plan that will help you build a solid base of lean, feminine muscle, and help to trim the excess fat. Learn more.

One caveat here; I know you're probably all super eager to get results quickly, and this section WILL help with your goals, however, no supplement in the world can take the place of hard work, strict training and dedication to diet. So please use these cautiously and only after you've developed solid habits that will lead you to your goals.

1. Branched Chain Amino Acids

During exercise, Branched Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) oxidation, especially leucine, is increased. In order to meet the increased demand for BCAA during exercise the body breaks down muscle tissue to supply additional BCAA—this is not good!

By supplying the body with extra BCAAs during exercise, one can meet the increased demand for amino acids without breaking down muscle tissue to supply the needed BCAAs. Thus, supplementation with BCAAs has been used to enhance sports performance and recovery, meaning you can go harder and longer in the gym, without experiencing catabolic effects.

2. Yohimbine HCL/Yohimbe

It's hard to describe what Yohimbe does without going into scientific technicalities, but I'll try my best. Yohimbe inhibits the action of the alpha2 receptor. By blocking the alpha2 receptor with Yohimbine, the action of the alpha receptors is reduced and fatty acid liberation is increased.

Yohimbine has been shown to increase fat loss by increasing the amount of fat mobilization and oxidation and blood flow to adipose tissue due. So Yohimbine addresses two of the stubborn fat issues we are trying to correct: alpha2 receptor action and blood flow. Yohimbine is good for women trying to increase fat loss in stubborn areas like buttocks, hips and thighs.

3. Soy Protein

Soy protein is generally very low in or free of fat, cholesterol, and lactose. The anabolic isoflavones in soy (genistein and daidzein), not only have exhibited effects as powerful antioxidants, but have been shown to exhibit positive health benefits especially for women.

It's valuable constituents include saponins, phytosterols, and isoflavones. This is one of the best things about soy protein! Saponins support a healthy immune system. The anabolic isoflavones in soy (genistein and daidzein), not only have exhibited effects as powerful antioxidants, but have also been shown to exhibit positive health benefits.

4. Thermogenics

Thermogenesis, the burning of adipose tissue, is activated by a few different mechanisms; including supplements, nutrition, exercise, and exposure to cold. Two types of diet supplements now generally available, combined with a diet and exercise program, may be able to help you trim those stubborn pounds.

The first type of supplement, called thermogenesis, which boosts your metabolic rate, causing your body to burn calories faster plus curb the appetite. The second class, lipotropic substances, aid the body in fat mobilization, causing greater utilization of stored fat.

Although it's well known that the way to lose weight is to expend more calories than you take in, supplements may be able to help you burn off extra calories.

5. Women's Multivitamin

Consistent use of multivitamins and other key supplements can promote good health and help prevent disease.

A report from the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) found that ongoing use of multivitamins (preferably with minerals) and other single-nutrient supplements (like calcium or folic acid) demonstrated quantifiable positive impact in areas ranging from strengthening the immune system of highly-vulnerable elderly patients, to drastically reducing the risk of neural tube birth defects such as spina bifida.

The difference between a "normal" and a women's multi is that a women's typically has more iron, calcium and Vitamin D. We need more iron because when "that time of the month" roles around, we lose a lot of iron and hemoglobin in the blood, that needs to be replenished so we don't become iron deficient or anaemic.

We need more calcium because as we age, out bones get more brittle faster than men, so we need to make sure they stay health and strong. The vitamin D helps absorb the calcium.

What Is Spina Bifida?

Spina bifida (Latin: "split spine") is a developmental birth defect involving the neural tube: incomplete closure of the embryonic neural tube results in an incompletely formed spinal cord. In addition, the vertebrae overlying the open portion of the spinal cord do not fully form and remain unfused and open. This allows the abnormal portion of the spinal cord to protrude through the opening in the bones.

There may or may not be a fluid filled sac surrounding the open spinal cord. Other neural tube defects include anencephaly, a condition in which the portion of the neural tube which will become the cerebrum does not close, and encephalocele, which results when other parts of the brain remain unfused.


In finishing, this article should help you get over the "3 week hump" after New Years. Don't become a statistic. Rather than working hard for your resolution, let your resolution work for you. I've given you workouts to do at home anytime of day or night, so that it's convenient, and excuses can become a thing of the past.

I've also given you a supplementation plan that will help you build a solid base of lean, feminine muscle, and help to trim the excess fat. But remember that no supplement can ever replace hard work, and moderately stringent dieting.
