The Right DosageBy Sean Rigsby, January 22, 2018
How to make sure you’re getting the right dosage in your sports nutrition
Supplementing a healthy diet with sports nutrition supplements can help you recover from hard training, meet your performance goals, or assist in maintaining your healthy lifestyle. But it can all be for naught if your supplements aren’t provided in an effective dosage.
Xendurance products provide dosing recommendations within the recommended daily values for optimal health and aren’t compromised with unnecessary fillers. Due to our commitment in requiring the highest manufacturing standards and participation in the Informed-Choice program, we can guarantee the doses presented on the label are reliable. Here are some of the most vital and widely used products.
A vitamin essential for human survival, D is responsible for a myriad of bodily processes. It’s estimated that over 40% of Americans are currently deficient due to increasingly sedentary lifestyles, spending less time outdoors, and a lack of nutrient rich food. While the advised Recommended Daily Amount (RDA) has progressed upwards, it still is well below the 1,000-2,000 IUs considered necessary for adults. It is best digested when taken alongside a fat source.
Each capsule of Xendurance Omega+D3 provides 2,000 IUs of D3, the form of Vitamin D best absorbed by the digestive system, and is accompanied by 1000mg of Omega-3 fatty acids.
Considered to be the second most widely deficient mineral in the diet of developed nations due to its low availability in grains. Magnesium can play a significant role in managing hypertension and insulin sensitivity. Recommended minimum dosage for supplementation is 200mg/day.
The daily dosage of Xendurance’s Immune boost provides 250mg of Magnesium to correct any deficiency, in addition to numerous other essential vitamins and minerals.
Whey protein is one of the most widely used sports nutrition supplements, with benefits ranging from improved muscle synthesis, reduced time for recovery, and consistent fat loss. The needs of the user and their bodyweight will determine exactly how much protein ingestion is optimal. More often than not, eating enough protein through regular diet can become difficult. Whey protein supplementation is an excellent way to ensure optimal recovery from rigorous training or to promote fat loss without losing lean muscle.
Recommended dosages range from 1g to 2.2g per kilogram of bodyweight, or .45g to 1g per pound, depending on activity. Xendurance’s Protein provides a complete amino acid profile with 20g of protein per dose as supplement to your every day diet.
