Episode 56: Sorting Out Supplements

by Carrie Lupoli | Diet Disruptors Podcast

If Coach Carrie has learned anything over her years of nutrition coaching, it is that NO ONE has a handle on the world of supplementation.  Do we need them?  Why?  Which kinds?  Grab a pen and paper because this week she is going to dive in to help you understand it all so you know exactly what you need!  Carrie discusses….

The Six (Seven) Things we Need Address to Reach our Goals

  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Water
  • Sleep
  • Stress
  • Supplements/Meal Replacements
  • Self Awareness!

Supplement Smarter

  • Use supplements as gap fillers, which allow us to get what our food cannot give us
  • You want to make sure it is CLEAN and effective for multiple areas of your body
  • Connect and consult with your doctor for individual advice
  • Use two meal replacements a day for ease AND to get certain vitamins and minerals

MultiVitamin 101

  • Look for a multivitamin WITHOUT added ingredients like sugars or fake sugars
  • Skip the gummy vitamins!
  • Get a good antioxidant and multivitamin combination
  • You only absorb 10-20% of a pill vitamin
  • You get the best absorption from liquid vitamins
  • Take vitamins in the morning AND a night because you absorb vitamins as you sleep
  • Kyani has a great sunrise and sunset vitamin regime: 
  • Check for vitamin deficiencies with bloodwork
  • If you have deficiencies, think about additional Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, magnesium, zinc, and a digestive enzyme with a probiotic 

The Power of the Nitro Effect

  • Get nitric oxide, which Mark Hyman says is “The most important thing you can do for your body that you never heard of”
  • Nitric oxide is called the “molecule of life” and is an anti inflammatory, an antioxidant, a neurotransmitter, increases and improves circulation, promotes memory and learning, promotes arousal, helps with sun damage and skin cancer, regulates digestive enzymes and digestive health, AND helps with hormonal balance
  • As we get older, our production of nitric oxide decreases  
  • Increase your nitric oxide through exercise and nasal breathing and by eating certain foods like leafy green veggies, almonds/nuts
  • Eating refined, processed carbs will hinder our production of nitric oxide
  • Increase your nitric oxide through supplementation: Kyani Nitro Extreme made from the noni fruit: 
  • You will absorb other nutrients better when you supplement with nitric oxide

Collagen: MORE than Hair, Skin, & Nails!

  • There are 27 different kinds of collagen, and you need a collagen that is MOST like the collagen in your body
  • Collagen lives in your connective tissue
  • A younger person has a faster metabolism because their collagen, facia, and cellular tissue is plentiful and efficient
  • We lose collagen and muscle mass as we age
  • As we get older and lose collagen, it impacts our joints
  • The RIGHT kind of collagen is important for optimising fat metabolism, building lean muscle, gaining long lasting energy, AND improving joint health
  • Kyani is a Type I and Type III Bovine Based Collagen, which is SO much closer to the collagen in your body: 
  • This collagen ALSO promotes nitric oxide production

Meal Replacements

  • Kyani Protein includes vitamins, minerals, and the amino acid l-citrulline malate to increase the nitro effect
  • Kyani Plantbased shakes are vegan, non GMO, and includes FOUR plant based proteins for a complete amino acid profile
    • The Fit 20 is a grass fed whey AND collagen peptides and is a faster acting protein to go right to your muscles to replenish amino acids after a tough workout
    • The Kyani Origin Plant Based Protein shake contains a prebiotic
  • Sign up to join our shake program and shake it up before the holidays!
