I’m Just Starting Out — What Dietary and Exercise Supplements Do I Need?

All of our products are made in the United States, and because we own our own facility, we give you more active ingredients per serving.

In this blog entry, we are going to assume that you’ve spoken with your doctor and decided on a gym or fitness routine that you know will keep you interested and motivated. Without the solid foundation of a healthy approach that you look forward to doing, nothing else will help.

The Right Diet

Whether you’re getting into the gym for the first time or for the first time in a long while, your body will need more fuel in order to build muscle and recover. While having the right diet is important for losing weight and/or gaining muscle, the right nutrition can also make the difference between keeping you motivated and giving up. It is tough to go to the gym when you feel like you have been kicked up and down the street all day. The right diet and exercise supplements can help.

Protein

Having enough protein is vital to minimizing recovery time, building muscle, and preventing further breakdown of muscle proteins. While it is possible to get most of the protein you need from meals, when you workout hard, you may need more protein than even a large meal can effectively deliver. In those situations, a high-protein supplement can be a great alternative to jamming yourself full of other kinds of foods.

At Golden Era Nutrition, we make a variety of protein powder drinks that pack tons of the highest-quality protein into every serving while still being incredibly delicious!

  • Protein Compound
  • Protein Isolate
  • Vegan Protein
  • Grass-Fed Isolate
  • Gen Mass

Nutrients and Compounds

Pushing your body to reach new heights can illuminate other shortcomings in your diet, including a lack of nutrients and compounds like BCAAs, L-Glutamine, and other essentials.

BCAAs

BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) are three of the nine essential amino acids that your body needs that are not made by your body. BCAAs are most abundant in high-protein foods like meat, eggs, and dairy products, and they help your body in a number of important ways. BCAAs help your body build more muscle, but more importantly, when you are just getting back into a routine, they help your body recover faster from workouts and they can limit how fatigued you feel after you hit the gym or go for a run.

Golden Era Nutrition offers BCAAs in a number of supplements, including:

  • BCAA
  • BCAA+G

L-Glutamine

L-Glutamine, another amino acid, has been shown to to speed up recovery after exercise while also decreasing soreness. In one study, a blood marker for fatigue was reduced in runners after they took L-Glutamine. While most people produce enough L-Glutamine in their bodies to satisfy their needs, it is possible to work hard enough that your body needs to supplement its stores with more.

Pre-Workout Energy Supplements

While the prevailing anecdotal wisdom is that working out actually helps you stay more energized, that isn’t always the case, especially when you are just beginning to work out again. For those days when you just can’t seem to muster the physical energy you need to make it to the gym, Golden Era Nutrition has a number of pre-workout energy options.

  • Pre-Workout
  • Organic Energy
  • BCAA+G
