Now that the Membership agreement has changed, it’s completely cool to supply your local CrossFit gyms with our awesome supplements. Resident CrossFitter Nic Wrightsent me an article called “Five Supplements Even CrossFitters Should Love.” And sure enough, we had most of the products on the list.
A lot of folks in the CrossFit community don’t like to use synthetic workout supplements. That’s why the AIM Companies product line fits so well into the CrossFit philosophy.
1. COQ10 in the form of CellSparc 360
COQ10 has been linked to increased endothelial function which is great if you’re also supplementing with beet juice. Also, regular COQ 10 supplementation boosts performance by 2.5% over time.
2. Magnesium in the form of Mag-Nificence
Magnesium is ridiculously helpful for sore muscles, especially when taken topically. You can target the sore muscles directly with topical magnesium. It’s a great way to relieve pain. Magnesium has also been shown to increase testosterone in athletes.
3. Vitamin D in the form of Veggie D and CalciAIM
Most people are deficient in vitamin D and when I say most people, I mean a billion people worldwide.
From the smarties at Harvard:
If you live north of the line connecting San Francisco to Philadelphia and Athens to Beijing, odds are that you don’t get enough vitamin D. The same holds true if you don’t get outside for at least a 15-minute daily walk in the sun. African-Americans and others with dark skin, as well as older individuals, tend to have much lower levels of vitamin D, as do people who are overweight or obese.
Worldwide, an estimated 1 billion people have inadequate levels of vitamin D in their blood, and deficiencies can be found in all ethnicities and age groups. (1–3) Indeed, in industrialized countries, doctors are even seeing the resurgence of rickets, the bone-weakening disease that had been largely eradicated through vitamin D fortification.
Vitamin D deficiency has also been linked to lower testosterone levels. That’s why athletes need it.
4. Protein Powder in the Form of ProPeas
Protein helps build muscle and it’s great as a post-workout recovery drink. ProPeas is an all-natural food, vegan food source of protein.
From Breaking Muscle:
CrossFitters only eat “real food,” right? And protein powder is the gold standard of everything that’s wrong in the supplement industry, right? Wrong. What’s wrong is all the stuff you bought in the past at some franchise supplement outlet was indeed chemical-filled junk. But there are plenty of quality protein powder sources out there.
ProPeas fits the bill of what a CrossFit athlete is looking for in a protein powder. Notice how the ideals of CrossFit coincide with the ideals of The AIM Companies. We aren’t selling big-franchise, chemical-filled crap. We’re a group of independent people, like CrossFit gym owners, promoting good health.
5. Beet Juice in the Form of Red Rush
Beet juice is simply a nitric oxide supplement in food form. Some of the arginine-based nitric oxide supplements on the market are synthetic, come bagged with warnings and have no scientific evidence to support their health claims. Beet juice is the exact opposite. It’s safe, effective, natural and has been scientifically studied over and over and over again. You can always read more about it over at the TheRedRushBlog.com.
