6 Common Mistakes When Choosing Supplements

Here are 6 common mistakes when choosing supplements and how to avoid them. We will show you how to make the right decisions, get the best result to make sure that you’re not disappointed as a result of unrealistic expectation.
  1. Not knowing your goals.

    One of the most common mistakes is trying to do everything at once. Building muscle and losing fat at the same time is nearly impossible for most people. Decide what you want to focus on first, and then pick out supplements accordingly. If you have too much body fat, focus on getting lean first by supplementing with a good fat burner, following a diet and workout routine. Once you’re as lean as you want to be, switch your focus from fat loss to building muscle.
  2. Overlooking the basics.

    Starting with the basics will set a strong foundation to reach your goals. Many people will buy an advanced supplement before investing in a basic good quality protein powder. If you haven’t got the fundamental supplements down, all the supplements in the world won’t make a lot of difference to your physique.
  3. Setting unrealistic expectations.

    Changing your body takes a long time, having your friends notice the changes takes even longer. No supplement is ever going to change your body completely in a month’s time. Keep your expectations real. Taking a good creatine supplement will help you lift more weight for more reps. But it might be just 1kg for 3 reps more per month, which doesn’t sound like much, but just imagine yourself in 6 months’ time. This also provides a more sustainable result.
  4. Skipping workout recovery supplements.

    The time immediately after your workout is just as important as the time spent on your workout. After a workout your muscles are depleted of glycogen and replenishing nutrition to enhance recovery and make your body stronger. The ingestion of essential amino acids from a quality protein sources has been shown to be beneficial for these processes.
  5. Incorrect use of supplements.

    It is essential to read the labels in order to get the most from your supplements. Some supplements should be taken on an empty stomach while other should be taken with meals to maximize the absorption of the supplements. We also recommend good digestive enzymes like “One For All Supplements” to maximize absorption and make sure that the supplements is not just flushed down the toilet.
  6. Not knowing the ingredients.

    It is vital to know and understand the ingredients of your chosen supplement. Do research on the ingredients you are unfamiliar with.
