One of the most common factors I routinely assess when working with a client, in addition to training, diet or cardio- is STRESS. In a chronically stressed client, with elevated levels of cortisol, the body is essentially working against you – holding onto bodyfat, limiting lean muscle growth and negatively impacting several other key systems of the body including digestion and nutrient absorption.
I can’t tell you how many athletes come to me to “fix them” these days. It’s always the same story: we review bloodwork, certain markers and hormones are out of whack, and we conclude that they have metabolic compensation. Metabolic compensation, which we refer to as simply met comp, is defined as dysregulation and dysfunction of the key hormones that regulate metabolic functions.
From time to time I’m going to share with you how to approach certain dieting techniques so that your supplement usage yields the most results. I’ll be the first to tell you if you don’t set up a solid nutrition plan, supplements aren’t going to give you the results you want on their own. Yes, I’m a supplement company owner, but I’m not ever going to pull the wool over someone’s eyes and oversell what a supplement can do for you.
We’d like to announce and welcome our newest sponsored athlete, Quinn Rivera! You may recognize Quinn from the recent NBC television competition called Titan Games (with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson). Quinn captured our attention on the show and has since captured our hearts in getting to know him more. Not only is he a fantastic athlete, but he’s got intelligence, drive and a true PASSION for helping others.
Welcome to NuEthix Formulations! I’m very excited about the launch of our new supplement line and website.
