The Balanced Diet Myth

Why you must supplement to stay healthy, perform better, live longer.

By Hammer Nutrition

Nearly 50 percent of athletes report that they take no dietary supplements because they already eat a "balanced diet." No doubt they've fallen for the hype espoused by so many doctors and nutritionists in the media: "eating a balanced diet will provide all the nutrients you need." Do you fall into this group?

Did you know that there has never been a single clinical study that documents what actually constitutes a balanced diet?

Even if you eat a whole foods diet that's rich in vegetables, whole grains, and healthy proteins (as we strongly advocate!), you won't be getting all of the vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients your body requires to stay healthy and perform at your full potential as an athlete.

Now, with cold and flu season at its peak, falling for the "balanced diet" myth is especially risky. Quality supplements that provide all the vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients your body needs - in the amounts it needs - are your very best defense. In fact, high-quality supplements, such as the Daily Essentials (Premium Insurance Caps, Race Caps Supreme, Mito Caps, and EndurOmega), are one of the best investments you can make in your health. As thousands of clients attest, you will feel the difference...

Premium Insurance Caps - This high-potency supplement contains the highest quality vitamins, minerals, and other key nutrients in optimal - not just minimal "daily recommended" - amounts.

"I burn the candle frequently due to coaching, training, and, oh yeah, working a 40-hour week... for years I struggled, catching every virus that went around. Last year I started using Premium Insurance Caps. I went through the entire winter cold free, had a great training cycle, and finished Ironman Lake Placid. Now my whole family uses it regularly."

"I can't say enough about how Premium Insurance Caps have kept my whole body well. Last year I was constantly getting sick. Now I can push myself to my limit while racing or training, and am recovered by the next day."

Race Caps Supreme - The original endurance supplement! First offered by Hammer Nutrition owner Brian Frank in 1982, Race Caps Supreme combines two potent antioxidants - CoQ10 and idebenone - together with other key nutrients for powerful athletic and health benefits. Safe and extraordinarily effective, Race Caps Supreme promotes: massively enhanced energy and endurance levels, improved exercise recovery, increased immunity, and improved cardiovascular and brain health.

"I started using Race Caps Supreme this racing season and the difference in my performance is off the charts. I will not race without them."

"Race Caps Supreme is part of my everyday routine. I've enjoyed the benefits for three years now and can't imagine a day with out it."

Mito Caps - Based on important recent discoveries in cellular physiology, this unique formula helps the mitochondria (the energy-producing "furnaces" in your cells) work more efficiently. The benefits? Improved energy production, better fat metabolism, and -according to at least one nutritional expert - potentially increased longevity!

"...I realized that I was feeling like I did in my early to mid-20s again. It's amazing to have that kind of energy and endurance back. Excellent product, and highly recommended for athletes and active people over 40!"

EndurOmega - Contains two highly researched omega-3 essential fatty acids, DHA and EPA, for a wide range of athletic and health benefits: cardiovascular protection, enhanced brain function and mood, reduced joint soreness, and more. Third-party tested for potency and purity.

"There are plenty of fish oil supplements on the market but EndurOmega is the one I trust. No fish aftertaste, and a great value."

With the Daily Essentials Kit Plus, you can give your body exactly what it needs (and save a considerable amount compared to buying these products individually!).

Consistently supplementing with the Daily Essentials will provide a noticeable boost to your health and athletic performance that you simply cannot get from your diet alone. Make these four products the cornerstone of your supplement program, and you will experience powerful immune system support, increased energy, greater stamina, and faster recovery after exercise.
