Dedicated athletes tend to make smarter food choices than your average American. They certainly are consuming enough protein from whole food and supplemental sources. And "eating clean" precludes most of the processed junk foods that are creating a nationwide nutritional catastrophe today. Even athletes, however, are hard-pressed to consume required amounts of the 30 different vitamins, minerals, and dietary components their bodies need, but cannot manufacture on their own in sufficient amounts.
Why is this? Part of it comes down to time and opportunity. We know you're out there broiling chicken breasts, baking sweet potatoes, and steaming broccoli, but there are only so many hours in the day to ensure you're eating enough foods rich in folate and selenium. A more important factor is the quality of typical store-bought produce.
A study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition in 2004 collated U.S. Department of Agriculture nutritional data for the years 1950 and 1999 for 43 different vegetables and fruits, and found "reliable declines" in protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, riboflavin, and Vitamin C over the last 50 years. One could hardly hope that this state of affairs has improved much in the last 15 years.
So what is the culprit here? Soil depletion. As modern fruits and vegetables become ever larger, faster-growing and pest-resistant, modern agriculture proves more efficient at stripping nutrients from the soil. And that impacts food quality. Let's not even get into the subject of genetically modified seed stocks.
Seeking Bodybuilding Success?
Take a Daily Multiple Devised for Athletes!
Let's face it. We all like the "bells and whistles." The super-turbo workout optimizers and advanced post-workout growth agents. Certainly there's an important place for those supplements in your regimen.
But it's definitely also time to consider your ideal muscle-building starter's kit as well. All the elite supplements in the world won't make any difference if your digestion is compromised, basic organ functions are undermined, and tissue and joint health are deteriorating. Every basic bodily function plays a key role in bodybuilding success. And that's where taking your proper vitamins and minerals will really pay big benefits.
Vitamins and minerals are responsible for thousands of critical biochemical reactions in the body, including converting food to energy, production of hormones, strengthening of the immune system and so much more. An ultra-premium daily multiple like ProSource's Super MegaMax addresses all these factors with a full and complete spectrum of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants. Better yet, it provides these vital nutrients in dosages specifically intended to support and fuel the intense workouts that serious athletes engage in.
Nutrient By Nutrient, No Other Product
Rivals Super MegaMax for Purity and Potency
Let's start with vitamins. This mega-comprehensive formulation is supercharged with a blend of B-Power Energy Factors that, among other B vitamins, contains an ultra-high amount of B12 -- 100 times the potency compared to generic brands, as well as a highly bioactive form of Vitamin C, 400 IUs of Vitamin D (crucial for bone strength and inflammation protection), and an isomer blend of natural Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant.
How about minerals? Let's talk about zinc. Strenuous physical exercise causes significant increases in the loss of zinc in the urine. Even small deficiencies in zinc can lead to reductions in testosterone production and insulin-like growth factor. That's why Super MegaMax provides 200% of your recommended daily value of zinc.
Magnesium, chromium, iron. They all facilitate key functions of repair, growth, and recovery. Feeling sluggish? The N-Acetyl-cysteine found in Super MegaMax is a derivative of the amino acid cysteine that researchers have suggested for some time has an impact on performance and fatigue.
Super MegaMax also provides superior antioxidant protection via lycopene, quercetin, alpha lipoic acid, calcium and CoQ10, compounds that have a synergistic cellular energy and free-radical protective effect that are normally not found in standard-issue multiples. Its ultra-comprehensive capacity is further manifested in a remarkable 20,000 IUs of beta carotene, 200 mcg of chromium, and a full spectrum of minerals for hydration and muscle contraction support.
Always keep in mind that high-intensity exercise depletes key vitamins and minerals at rates far in advance of anything a typical sedate person experiences. This is why a daily multiple off a supermarket shelf is a waste of money for a high-performance athlete. Even if the nutrients in one of those multis were present in a sufficiently bioactive form (and believe us, they're not) the dosages wouldn't approach the levels you need. That's why there's Super MegaMax.

For Optimal Male Health
While we're on the subject, we should note that ProSource also offers another daily multiple created with the active man in mind. ProSource Vital Men's is manufactured to the highest industry standards to attain optimum bioavailability, with impactful dosages of 23 vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, C, D, E, K, thiamin, riboflavin and niacin, plus calcium, iodine, magnesium, zinc, selenium, copper, manganese and chromium, among others.
Vital Men's also features fundamental male-health-oriented additions such as saw palmetto and nettle root for prostate support, plus raw oyster extract its support of sexual function. Korean ginseng is included as a focus and cognition enhancer, as well as PABA (para aminobenzoic acid) as a norepinephrine potentiating cognition and stamina enhancer. Odorless garlic and alpha lipoic acid are incorporated for their support of powerful free-radical-scavenging action. Lycopene has great potential as a cholesterol regulator, due to its ability to prevent oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL). ProSource's Vital Men's is a perfect complement to an energetic, high-performance lifestyle.
Whichever way you go, Super MegaMax or Vital Men's, you simply cannot over-estimate the importance of supplementing with a super-comprehensive daily multiple source of essential vitamins and minerals to keep your body functioning at peak capacity. Taking high-end pre- or post-workout supplements while neglecting basic nutrition is like obsessing over your muscle car's exterior detailing and never changing the engine oil. As in all endeavors, lay the basic groundwork and your efforts will be rewarded with extraordinary results!
