Exercise Supplements To Help Boost Your Energy Pre & Post Workout

Tracey Munn

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.

Improved Concentration

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.

Increased Muscle

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.

Increased Autophagy

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.  Autophagy 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

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 Workouts

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.

HIIT

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.

Strength Training

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

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.

Accelerated Keto

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.

Energy Enhancer Patches

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.

Acceleradine

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.

X49 Patches  

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.

X39 Patches

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 Patches

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.

Accelerated Ancient Salt

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.

What else you can do to Maximize the Benefits of Exercise

Increase Protein Intake

Consuming 1-1.2 grams of protein per pound of desired lean body mass from wild animal protein and wild fish will enhance the benefits of exercise. 

Animal protein including lamb, bison, deer, grass-fed beef, and elk are complete proteins that include all of the essential amino acids, high omega 3 fatty acids, collagen, and the essential vitamins like Vitamin D, E, and Vitamin B’s that are needed for muscle growth.  They also have the essential amino acids that trigger CCK in the gut to keep appetite under control.  These meats are less acidic than pork and conventional beef and are easier to digest.  

It is also important to include a high-quality collagen supplement.  Collagen is a protein that is needed for hair, skin, nails, tendons and to heal the soft tissues in between muscle fibers, but not necessarily for muscle building. It is needed to repair muscle but not necessarily grow it.  I recommend taking this twice a day, as the half-life of collagen is 12 hours.

Exercise in a Fasted State

Exercising in a fasted state will enhance the benefits of exercise by:

Increasing Fat Loss

When you exercise in a fasted state, you are tapping into the benefit of low insulin and leptin levels; when insulin and leptin are low, fat burning increases, and when insulin and leptin are high, fat storage increases.  You have fat that is stored inside the muscle and ready to burn for fuel.  

After that fat is burned, more fat from the body is moved into the muscle to burn.  A study showed that subjects burned three times more fat when in a fasted state versus a fed state, and experienced increased use of glycogen after the workout by three times.  That means that nutrient and protein utilization increases when you eat after the workout.  This will help build more lean muscle while the fat is being burned.

Building More Muscle

When you work out in a fasted state, the body is more primed to utilize nutrients and protein to build muscle with the post-workout meal.  In fact, it increases protein synthesis by twice the amount.

Achieving Less Fat Cell Sensitivity

In the morning you are less likely to store fat;  the muscle cells are very insulin sensitive.  The opposite is true in the evening.  This means the muscles can easily absorb nutrients in the morning, and if you eat after your workout, the nutrients are going to the muscles and not stored as fat.  

Ideally, you have fasted when you work out and break your fast with lean, nutrient dense, wild animal protein that contains just a little bit of omega 3.  Just a small amount of omega 3 fatty acids with the protein leads to exponentially more protein synthesis and muscle growth.  

On the contrary, if you are in a fed state and not fasted when you workout, you are primed for fat storage after your workout; your post-workout meal would be likely stored as fat.

Triggering Autophagy

Exercise, and especially cardio, in a fasted state, increases autophagy within the peripheral regions of the body, like skeletal muscles and the liver.  It does this by reducing Coenzyme A which enhances autophagy, in addition to decreasing MToR, which is the anabolic (or “building) hormone.  Lastly, it increases AMPK, which tells the body there is a lack of incoming fuel and to start burning fat for fuel.

Increasing BDNF

Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor is related to cognitive alertness, neuroplasticity, new neural pathways, and elevated mood.  In a study, exercising in a fasted state increases BDNF by 50 to 400% depending on the brain region.
