THE MOST OVERLOOKED VITAMIN - VITAMIN F (Essential Fatty Acids)

Multivitamins are not complete without EFAs!


Your multivitamin should contain a full range of vitamins! I mean EVERY vitamin! Not just a part of them! But most multivitamins in the market do NOT contain Vitamin F!

Essential fatty acids (EFA) are vital to sustain your life, but we need to obtain them from outside because human body is unable to manufacture them on its own in sufficient quantities. They were originally designated as Vitamin F when they were discovered as essential nutrients in 1923!



These fatty acids play a fundamental role in several physiological functions. EFAs support the cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and nervous systems. Symptoms of essential fatty acids deficiency include cancer, insulin resistance, depression, poor immunity, hypertension, decreased memory and mental health, asthma, diabetes, increased tendency of blood clotting, growth retardation, irregular heartbeat, increased triglycerides and so on. Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation may improve:

 

  • cardiovascular health
  • high blood pressure.
  • cholesterol levels
  • insulin sensitivity
  • brain functions
  • the health of hair, skin and the integrity of intestinal tract
  • muscle growth
  • joint health, it may reduce joint pain and inflammation

 

The California Fitness Hardcore Training Pak is really a FULL SPECTRUM multivitamin product! It contains a high quality EFA complex, with 180mg EPA and 120mg DHA!

 


 


THE MOST IMPORTANT MINERALS IN TERMS OF SPORT PERFORMANCE

Zinc and magnesium are two of the most frequently diminished vitamins in the athletes body.


In the 90's, ZMA was one of the most successful supplements on the market, because wonder of wonders, it actually worked! Zinc and Magnesium deficiency are common in athletes. This results in reduced testosterone levels, lack of performance, reduced recovery, cramps and tiredness!


IN FACT - Zinc deficiency is one of the most common and most serious of mineral deficiencies. Zinc deficiency is conservatively estimated to affect 25 percent of the world's population, according to Nutrition and Public Health. But according to the Sports Medicine (2001;31(8):577-82.): athletes often adopt an unusual diet in an attempt to enhance performance that may lead to suboptimal zinc intake in 90% of athletes.


IN FACT - Health experts believe that more than 80% of adults are magnesium deficient, placing them at extreme risk of cardiovascular diseases osteoporosis and of developing diabetes, and psychiatric disorders. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include anxiety, fatigue, migraine attacks, muscle weakness and spasm, loss of appetite, vomiting, nausea, insomnia, abnormal heart rhythms, pain in neck and back.


Zinc has been strongly linked to the production of testosterone, growth hormone and IGF-1. A particular clinical trial found that after just 14 days of zinc supplementation, subjects showed an impressive increase in muscular strength and endurance. Magnesium is also an essential mineral that is involved in more than 300 chemical reactions in the body including cellular healing and fat oxidation. Studies found that muscle endurance, and total work capacity, decrease rapidly with acute magnesium depletion and the degree of the decline was correlated with the decrease in plasma magnesium concentration.


The California Fitness Hardcore Training Pak provides these two essential nutrients in higher doses than the most similar products on the market!
