Supplement Starter Pack: What should you buy?

With the endless amount of supplements on the market, it is hard to know what is beneficial, worth the price and not filled with a bunch of crap. Every person in the health and fitness industry (or, let’s be real, even unqualified people) has a different opinion on supplements and it can be extremely confusing. So, owner of Trucks & Trainers, Mariah, wants to give some insight on what a realistic starter pack of supplements might look like for you. Beginners, you will probably be surprised what made the cut – and what didn’t!

One of the simplest, yet best explanations for a starter pack that we heard was from our brand that we use – Bucked Up:

1. Weapons: Pre-workouts
2. Armor: Full Spectrum Multivitamin
3. Health Potions: Grass-Fed Whey Protein
4. Stamina Potions: Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)

Pre- Workouts

Pre-workouts are used to push you to a higher level. When lifting weights, you are literally wanting to break down you muscle fibers more. When doing cardio, you are wanting to go faster, longer or with extra obstacles. In times of mental and physical exhaustion where you could use a “little push”, drink some pre-workout. It’s simple and crazy effective. Our pre-workouts contain caffeine (energy), beta-alanine (endurance), citrulline (blood flow), and alpha size gpc (focus). Guess what? They are also sugar free, zero calories, keto/paleo friendly!

Full Spectrum Multivitamin

Multi-vitamins have been in some of our daily routines since kids. Remember the Flinstone vitamins? Bucked Up has “Doe” for our women and “Stag” for our men that acts as the foundation to thrive. Doe contains key ingredients such as vitamin B & E (hair, skin, nails), vitamin C (immune function), vitamin D3 (hormonal balance) and cranberry (urinary tract health). Stag contains key ingredients such as vitamin A & E (toxin protection and vision), magnesium (healthy testosterone) and iron (energy production). These multi-vitamins are clinically studied and designed for everyone.

Grass-Fed Whey Protein

Say hello to our delicious tasting protein, WITH quality. As a macronutrient that is essential to lean muscle growth, Bucked up has protein powders for keto, prenatal and of course those who just flat out want protein aka buck feed. Whether you mix it with water, almond milk or pancake mix – this protein will have you conquering your goals. Our protein is packed with 25g of grass fed whey, all natural, zero artificial sweaters and no hormones or additives. How many protein powders can say that? Correct answer – none.

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)

Say hello to the recovery supplement, BCAAs (ranched Chain Amino Acids). BCAAs help you keep the momentum of your fitness journey because they help accelerate recovery time, improve protein synthesis and delay muscle fatigue. In order for muscles to grow, we need to repair the fibers that were broken down during your workout – this is where they grow and get stronger!
