Every doctor, practitioner, and lifestyle guru promotes exercise as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle and lower risk of mortality. Did you know by adding the right pre and post-workout exercise supplements, your workout performance can be enhanced as can the benefits you receive from exercising?
First, let’s look at the benefits of exercising.
What are the Benefits of Exercise
Exercise can improve bone density, posture, strength, flexibility, circulation, immunity, sleep, and much more. Different types of exercise have varying benefits – and you can also do too much exercise, leading to detrimental effects.
Some of the health benefits from exercising are:
Stimulation of the Lymphatic System
The lymphatic system is a backup for the vascular system. It doesn’t have a pump like the vascular system; it needs physical movement of the body or stimulation to optimize its function.
The lymphatic system recycles old red blood cells and supports the immune system; it captures pathogens. It helps transport fat throughout the system. Without stimulation from movement such as exercise, the lymphatic system can become stagnant and lead to a suppressed immune system, poor circulation, and other issues.
Increased Growth Factors in the Brain
Exercise has been shown to increase BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor), brain activity, and memory. The hippocampus is the part of the brain responsible for memory, and exercise in the elderly and children has been shown to increase activity in the hippocampus, therefore increasing memory.
The ability to hold focus and not be distracted is improved as the BDNF and neuroplasticity increase with exercise and circulation to the brain.
Improved Mental Health
A 2010 study over an eight-week period showed a significant decrease in the amygdala after yoga and meditation; this is the part of the brain that is responsible for fear, anxiety and depression. Furthermore, all exercise increases BDNF which is correlated with neuroplasticity, better memory, improved concentration and overall mood.
Skeletal Muscle Mass is directly correlated to longevity, and with most exercise, especially weight lifting, muscle mass will usually increase or at least not decrease with exercise. With age, maintaining muscle mass becomes more difficult and weight-bearing exercise becomes increasingly imperative.
Increased Fat Oxidation
As you exercise, especially when you are in a fasted state, body fat is mobilized and utilized for energy.
Improved Bone Density
Bone density depends on minerals, collagen, and weight-bearing exercise. Without exercise that includes pounding or lifting heavy weights, bone density will suffer. On the contrary, exercise like swimming and non-weight bearing exercise will actually make bone density worse due to the lack of gravity.
Autophagy is a biological process that removes the body’s accumulated toxins and recycles damaged cell components. It is activated primarily when you are experiencing energy deprivation or exercise. It is triggered by low insulin and a ketogenic diet, and it helps combat free radicals. Exercise is known to be the quickest way to trigger autophagy.
Lower Blood Sugar
Exercise before or after a meal will help improve insulin sensitivity and lower blood sugar. In actuality, after consuming too much glucose, just walking for ten minutes will blunt the rise of blood sugar.
What are the Most Beneficial Types of Exercise
Most forms of exercise are beneficial, but there are certain types of exercise that offer a variety of health benefits.
Rebounding can be done on a vibration machine or a trampoline. It improves bone density, posture, lymphatic drainage, mobility, and flexibility. It has also been shown to increase serotonin and alleviate stress.
Cardio serves a purpose in moderation. It can enhance muscle growth, improve heart health, increase lymphatic drainage, boost immune health, increase endorphins, and much more. The danger is if you do chronic cardio without balancing the other exercise modalities, you can actually accelerate aging. It is even more important to not overdo cardio after the age of 40.
High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is extremely beneficial for mental and physical health. It has been shown to increase muscle strength, improve health, increase BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor), and increase longevity.
Furthermore, it increases growth hormone and ATP production in the mitochondria; both lead to improved life span and health span.
Longevity is directly correlated to skeletal muscle mass. Strength training is the quickest way to change the composition of the body, by increasing lean muscle mass and losing body fat, especially the dangerous visceral fat around the abdominal area.
Yoga not only can help with strength and flexibility but also can improve mental health by lowering stress and anxiety.
Exercise Supplements to Help Boost Energy Levels
Soon after introducing exercise into your daily life, the benefits will become noticeable. You will not only start to look fitter but will feel an overall improved sense of wellbeing.
Adding the right exercise supplements will help to speed up the benefits from exercising, along with helping your post-workout recovery.
The additional ingredients in the Accelerated Keto break down saturated fats into unsaturated fats. These unsaturated fats are easier for the body to utilize and easier for the body to convert to ketones.
So, when exercising, the body fat is more readily available to burn for energy, which increases ketones and autophagy mechanisms further. Because of this property, Accelerated Keto is able to de-fat the liver as well.
It is well known that the liver is responsible for converting stored fat into ketones. The more a person’s liver is defatted and unclogged, the easier it is for the liver to function in all areas including breaking down fat molecules into usable energy. The liver is also where the thyroid hormone converts from T4 to T3, and as the liver function becomes better, the thyroid works better as well, increasing metabolism and energy further.
With increased energy, better performance can be reached during exercise.
In addition to helping improve energy, hair and eye color, immunity, collagen, and cardiovascular health, Accelerated Copper increases energy for your workout, which will in turn increase your results. Furthermore, it stimulates brain activity, helps alleviate brain fog, helps prevent osteoporosis, helps reverse anemia, and helps prevent aging skin.
Most copper supplements only have 5% absorption whereas Accelerated Scalar Copper has 99% absorption. Accelerated Scalar Copper is the only nano scalar copper solution treated with water implosion technology and enhanced with Scalar frequencies to enhance the absorption and increase the efficacy. It is made only with ozonated and UV sterilized distilled water and 99.99% Ultra fine pure scalar copper. Accelerated Copper uses nano copper which makes sure that it does not bioaccumulate to toxic levels as other supplements with much larger particles can do. The embedded Scalar frequencies energize the copper and structure the copper hydrosol. The scalar frequencies imprint healthy bio-patterns to help with rejuvenation effects in the brain and body.
Energy Enhancer Patches increase ATP production in the mitochondria, increase heart rate variability, improve the bioelectrical measurement or “phase angle” or integrity of the cell walls, reduce inflammation, and increase endurance.
Furthermore, it increases beta-oxidation which is the fastest way to increase cellular energy.
As a plus, it increases fat burning and muscle growth. They work synergistically with the Accelerated Keto in your fat burning and tapping into an endless supply of fuel source on your body. All of these factors work synergistically with exercise to increase the benefits.
After just 20 minutes, the capacity of each cell increases. Additionally, it improves digestion and circulation which are essential for nutrient absorption that leads to improved energy.
Sufficient iodine in all tissues and cells helps to produce 36 ATP through the Krebs cycle, which has profound implications for all levels of function, including brain function, physical performance, wound healing, fat burning, healthy apoptosis (destruction of diseased cells), and more.
ATP is true cellular energy; when ATP increases, energy and fat oxidation increases. When we are low in iodine, we tend to transition into glycolysis, which only produces 2 ATP, bypassing the normal Krebs cycle and the mitochondria altogether.
Acceleradine also helps improve metabolism and physical energy by supplying the necessary iodine for thyroid hormones. As the thyroid is functioning optimally and the ATP is maximized, exercise will lead to further health gains than with exercise alone.
The X49 is a patch that may increase energy and recovery after exercise, improve cardiovascular function and focus, increase muscle tone and strength, and increase lean body mass and bone density, and reduce belly fat.
Furthermore, it helps with osteoporosis. The X49 is enhancing the strength and endurance benefits of exercise when incorporating strength training and a low carb diet.
These patches increase your own stem cell production and reset over 4,000 genes to younger state. As a result, it helps repair collagen in all tissues, activates stem cell production, encourages apoptosis of cancer cells, and discourages metastatic cancer cells.
Through clinical studies, an improvement in the overall energy of the body, organ balance, and symmetry distribution of energy was improved as well. While using X39, performance during exercise may be enhanced, risk of injury may be less, and performance results may be increased.
Carnosine is a naturally occurring antioxidant in the body, of which production declines with age. Studies on carnosine show that it plays a vital role in overall health, neuroprotection and anti-aging. In clinical studies, carnosine has also been shown to improve flexibility, strength, balance and endurance.
For athletes, it has been shown to blunt the lactic acid effect that slows muscle and endurance progress. All of these factors may enhance the desired benefits from exercise.
A lack of proper salt intake will cause additional issues with the sodium potassium pump in the cells; the pump’s job is to put nutrients into the cells and take toxins out of it. A lack of sodium and potassium may actually lead to water retention.
Most salts are stripped of all minerals except for sodium in addition to toxic microplastics. Those salts will lead to dehydration, toxicity, and bloat. Using a complete salt like Accelerated Ancient Salt, with over 62 minerals, will help rehydrate the body, improve energy and athletic performance. When you put a little Accelerated Ancient Salt on your tongue, you will experience a boost of energy and a decrease in appetite.
