When it comes to male fitness, there are ways that a body can be helped to achieve its potential. There are health supplements that can be taken to support regular exercise and a healthy diet. The health benefits of boron supplements, for instance, cannot be underestimated. This article will put under the microscope the supplements that are out there to help a man achieve his full potential in terms of fitness. To give him military might in his occupation or in carrying out his daily activities.
As a supplement, the nutrient boron helps with regulating other minerals, enzymes, and hormones. Interacting with calcium helps with bone metabolism. It is used for building strong bones, strengthening muscles, and increasing a man’s testosterone levels. Not only that it contributes to improved thinking and better muscle coordination. For this reason, it is one to consider if you are in military training.
Because Boron is used to build strong bones, it will also treat conditions such as osteoarthritis. So, it is good for anyone’s bones but particularly where fitness is concerned because they are taking extra strain.
Unlike many other supplements, there is no recommended daily allowance (RDA) for boron. Users will consume differing amounts dependant on their diet. Those diets that are considered to by high in boron will provide 3.25 mg of it per 2000 kcal per day. Generally, no diet can provide it all, so supplements are required.
Protein supplements have been proven to assist with athletic performance, fat loss, and muscle building. It should be noted, however, that taking too much protein could have the opposite effect and result in a reduction in the potential for muscle building.
B-12 is a good vitamin for protein as it helps with the metabolism of proteins and fats. It does need B-6 and folate combined with it to work, though. B-6 is another vitamin that helps to metabolize protein. Thiamine will help the body with fat, carbohydrates, and proteins.
Pure creatine monohydrate is a beneficial supplement when it comes to building body strength. It also increases the lean mass of muscles and helps them in their recovery after exercise. It can help with achieving bursts of energy and speed for athletes in high-intensity activities. As a cautionary note, creatine can cause muscle cramping, and like protein, is best not taken in high doses.
Vitamin D will help in regulating the amount of phosphate and calcium in the body. This helps with keeping teeth, bones, and muscles in a healthy condition. A lack of this vitamin in children has resulted in bone deformities and conditions such as rickets.
So, in summary, we have discussed four supplements that you might want to think about. Boron has the advantage of not causing any problems because of the quantity used, whereas protein and creatine can either have the reverse effect or promote muscle cramps. Vitamin D is good for keen gym-goers. So, boron would seem like a good all-round option in terms of strengthening bones and muscles and providing a man with enhanced fitness levels and a pleasing physique. Not to mention the improved thinking that boron promotes. All this would make it good for those wanting to enter or continue a career in the military or those taking up an athletic sport. Sometimes, the body needs assistance to achieve what it is capable of. This is where health supplements come into their own and can, in combination with a controlled diet and the right kinds of exercise, produce almost the perfect specimen that man desires, or at least that strenuous activities and occupations desire. You never know, if you like the sound of getting into strenuous activities, strength training may just be for you!
