Just a quick share on the supplements I personally use, why and where you can purchase them.
3. Vitamin D-3 (During the cold or rainy months)
During the warmer months I put a lot of skin in the game, meaning that I generally wear a tank top, shorts and flip flops, so my body gets a lot of sunshine, so I don’t supplement with Vitamin D. But during the rainy season and the colder months, I take 2,000 IU daily just to make sure I get enough. Here are more details if you are interested. Here is where I buy it.
5. Whey Protein
Oh yes, muscle-building protein! I do my best to get all of my daily protein from whole foods, but this is great to have when you are in a hurry or can’t be bothered with making anything.
If you want to know more about whey protein, here is a great source.
The cost performance on the first two brands below is excellent at approx. ¥100 ($1) per scoop, which gives you about 25g of protein.
I use this brand because it is as close to milk as possible and has only 2 ingredients.
If you are lactose intolerant and/or like a lighter tasting protein, whey isolate is the way to go. Here is the one I buy. Be aware that the link is the unflavored version.
If you are more gritty and like a more cheesy aftertaste, whey concentrate is the way to go. Here is the one I buy. Note that the link I have shared is the unflavored version.
If you want something more sexy, then this one is the gold-standard. There are plenty of flavors to choose from. Some are pretty darn sweet:-) There are artificial flavors and sucralose (artificial sugar) in some of the flavors, so please have a look and decide for yourself.
Wrapping it up
There are supplements for everything and many of them are a waste of money. I have found that these 5 are plenty and they are very cost-effective. If you have any questions, please give me a shout and I’ll do my best to help you out!
Have a magnificent day!
