Stronger Faster Healthier and Your MADlifestyle
Posted in Program Design & Theory on May 22, 2014
At MADabolic Inc., we strive to make real food the staple of our diet. However, we fully realize that life gets busy, and sometimes a healthy and convenient alternative is necessary. After much research we can confidently recommend a line of supplements that meets our nutritional standards and compliments any MADlifestyle.
Stronger Faster Healthier (SFH) is a family-run company based in Warren Maine that produces high quality grass-fed protein powders and liquid fish oil. Packaged in the USA, all ingredients are raw and are of the highest quality available worldwide.
So when time is of essence or circumstance dictates your food choice, SFH has three protein formulas that provide in the range of 15-25 grams of readily absorbable protein to help accelerate lean muscle growth and are designed for a variety of needs.
SFH FUEL is an anytime, go to protein supplement. With 20 grams of quality whey protein, 4.5 grams of coconut fat, and 1.5 grams of apple pectin (medium glycemic carb) you will feel energized and satiated for 1.5-2 hours without the insulin spike that comes with ingesting alternatives that are loaded with high glycemic carbs and sugars.
FUEL works well in a variety of situations. One scoop is perfect for early morning athletes who do not have time to cook, or who simply cannot stomach a heavy morning meal. Single serving packets are great for anyone on the run at any time of day and can be easily put in kids back packs for after school fueling.
SFH Recovery is a post workout protein supplement specifically designed to rescue your body after high intensity workouts. In addition to the 15 grams of protein, Glucosomine and Chondroiten (joint health package) have been added to minimize inflammation and reduce the wear and tear on joints and ligaments. The branch chain amino acids Leucine and Isoleucine (muscle building package) have been included to promote the exoskeletal muscle growth that in turn burns fat. Finally and crucial to the rescue process is the inclusion of Ribose, Carnitine, Creatine, and CoQ-10, which have been added to facilitate Adenosine Triphosphate regeneration. ATP is the “energy” component in cells that becomes depleted after high intensity workouts. Without Recovery, the body needs 48-72 hours to replenish ATP storages, but if taken within 60 minutes post workout, Recovery allows the body to return to a restored state more effectively.
SFH Omega 3 Liquid compliments any clean diet’s effort to reduce inflammation – the root of a myriad of today’s diseases, and the cause behind the soreness felt after exercise. We here at MADabolic Inc. believe all our clients should be using this product. While SFH Omega 3 does not guarantee muscular pain will be eliminated completely, a significant decrease in discomfort will be noticeable with proper and consistent dosage. They further insist that the benefits of their high potent anti-inflammatory are not limited to athletes, but will also have a similar effect on everyone from children, to grandparents and even to pets.
The minimum amount of EPA/DHA needed everyday to get the full effects of fish oil is 3000mg of combined EPA/DHA. Generic fish oil pills typically fall in the range of 180-120mg EPA/DHA per pill. Using these figures it would take 10 pills per day to meet the required minimum. However if you factor the 60% absorption rate of the pill format into the equation, it actually takes 14-16 pills a day to get the daily minimum dose. This is why SHF prefers the 98% absorption rate of liquid delivery. Each teaspoon of SFH Omega-3 averages around 3194mg of EPA/DHA, the perfect minimum daily dose. 1tsp per day is recommended for general health while 2tsps are necessary if exercise induced inflammation or chronic inflammatory disease is present. To keep things simple, it takes up to 32 generic pills to match potency of 2tsp of SFH.
It should also be noted that generic pill oil is normally sourced from factory-farmed fish that consume an unnatural diet and exist in an environment that taints their fats with heavy metals and harmful toxins. SFH uses only wild caught sardines and anchovies living naturally off South America’s west coast. Their sources are always stringently tested to assure safety and purity.
When all is said and done: do your best to eat real, clean food. Don’t feel guilty when good supplementation is necessary. To find out more about SFH here. Get outside. Sweat often. Sleep well, and find balance in everything you do.
