This Weeks Book

Happy Sexy Millionaire

Just started on this book few days ago after a recommendation from a friend. To be fair this book has crossed my path before, but somehow it looked like just another ''show-offy''  book full off narcissistic talks. Actually listening to the book, I can honestly tell you that you shouldn't judge a book by it's cover- Literally! The book is very inspiring, easy to listen and full of amazing AHA moments. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to improve their view on life. The author himself is narrating this book if you are listening to it on audible. His life story is very interesting and inspiring. Not going to give anything away, so you can find out yourselves. So don't judge the book by it's cover and go check this one out!

Fitness Tip of the Week
Importance of Rest and Active Recovery!

If you are into exercise as much as I am, you'll be dreading hearing the scary word ''REST''. Honestly, every time someone tells me that I need to rest it makes my blood boil! But here's the problem- you actually do need to rest. It is really hard for me to admit it, but without rest sooner or later your body will crumble. And I can definitely feel it at the moment. Energy is a bit low, my lifts are a lot weaker and workouts just a little bit harder. So it's time to have a rest. Why?
Rest days are an important part of any exercise routine. Exercise depletes glycogen levels, which leads to muscle fatigue. Rest days allow the muscles to replenish their glycogen stores, thereby reducing muscle fatigue and preparing the muscles for their next workout. Rest days help you get stronger in a long run. They minimize the risk of injury. 
But rest day doesn't have to be spent in bed. You can still do things. In fact you should do things! Go for a walk, keep active, stretch, drink plenty of fluids and eat the right food. This way your body will recover quicker and feel better at the end of the day. The main idea is to avoid any strenuous exercise and activities, so leave those dumbbells alone and forget about that marathon for one day.
When should you rest?
You should allow roughly 2-3 days of recovery per muscle group worked, this will mostly depend on your general fitness level, exercise volume and personal recovery abilities. As well as, you should aim to have a deload week every 8-10 weeks, where activity levels are reduced to lesser volume. You can still exercise on your deload week, but you would choose lighter weights, reduce tempo, etc.
This week I want you to look at your training routine. Are you resting enough? IS it time for a deload week?

Supplement of the Week

What? Why? Who?

The question I get asked a lot is so what do Nootropics do?
 So in this article I will try to explain what Nootropics are, what they actually do and go a bit more in depth into our 7 Active ingredients and what makes them so special.

Nootropics- also known as ‘’Smart Drugs’’ are drugs, supplements, and other substances that are claimed to improve cognitive function, particularly executive functions, memory, creativity, or motivation, in healthy individuals. There are loads of different type of Nootropic supplements both natural, coming from plants and herbs and synthetic, created in the lab environment.
So let’s see what 7 Active ingredients in I.F. Supplements Nootropics are and why they are so good!

Caffeine- Is a natural stimulant most commonly found in tea, coffee, and cacao plants. It works by stimulating the brain and central nervous systems, helping you stay alert and prevent the onset of tiredness.

Matcha Green Tea- Comes from the same plant as green tea, but since it’s made from the entire leaf it packs in a more concentrated amount of antioxidants and beneficial plant compounds. Studies have revealed a variety of health benefits associated with matcha and its components, such as enhancing weight loss, decreasing the risk of heart disease and boosting brain functions.

Vitamin B12- Is an essential vitamin that your body needs but cannot produce. It’s found naturally in animal products, but also added to certain foods and available as an oral supplement or injection. Vitamin B12 has many roles in your body. It supports the normal function of your nerve cells and is needed for red blood cell formation and DNA synthesis. Vitamin B12 may benefit your body in impressive ways, such as by boosting your energy, improving your memory and helping prevent heart disease.

Niacin (Vitamin B3) -Niacin, also known as vitamin B3, is an important nutrient. In fact, every part of your body needs it to function properly. As a supplement, niacin may help lower cholesterol, ease arthritis and boost brain function, among other benefits.

L-Tyrosine-Is a popular dietary supplement used to improve alertness, attention and focus. It produces important brain chemicals that help nerve cells communicate and may even regulate mood. Tyrosine is an amino acid that is naturally produced in the body from another amino acid called phenylalanine. Supplementing with tyrosine is thought to increase levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine, adrenaline and norepinephrine. By increasing these neurotransmitters, it may help improve memory and performance in stressful situations

 L-Theanine- Is an amino acid found primarily in green and black tea and some mushrooms. It is said to help ease anxiety, stress, and reduce insomnia. Paired with caffeine it can increase focus and help with blood pressure management.

L-Carnitine- Is a naturally occurring amino acid derivative that’s often taken as a supplement. It is used for weight loss and may have an impact on brain function. Acetyl-L-carnitine, often called ALCAR the type of L-carnitine we use in our Nootropics is possibly the most effective form for your brain. Studies suggest that it may benefit people with neurodegenerative diseases.

7 active ingredients in I.F. Supplements Nootropics bring you these and many other benefits!  Worth mentioning that although our Nootropics are amazing, they are not meant to treat any underline conditions and should be used by healthy individuals who need an extra boost. If you suffer from any conditions or taking any medication which might be affect by use of supplements you should get in touch with your GP before starting using supplements.
