July’s giveaway is a prize pack of fish oil, magnesium and vitamin D from my friends at PurePharma!
When it comes to supplements, I’m a minimalist and a skeptic by nature. I don’t rely on pills, powders and potions because when it comes down to it, good nutrition must have its roots in good nutrition. Put another way, trying to supplement your way out of a consistently poor diet is missing the point.
That being said, there are definitely exceptions I make when it comes to supplements, and this trio of products from PurePharma has been a consistent part of my regimen for the last three years and counting. I don’t take them all every single day; rather, it depends on what my diet might be lacking (because not even Paleo nutritionists are perfect) or I happen to be getting more of. For example, when I eat a gorgeous piece of wild salmon for dinner, I generally skip out on supplementing with fish oil. When I haven’t been training as hard, I’ll usually pass on the magnesium.
PurePharma is growing in popularity especially amongst the CrossFit community, but make no mistake: the core trio of fish oil, magnesium and vitamin D can be used by anyone, athlete or not. When I train hard, I feel confident taking PurePharma to supplement my diet because I know their products are backed by science and verified by stringent quality measures.
A little bit about the products:
PurePharma O3 is the ultra-pure fish oil with a 5:2 EPA/DHA ratio. I take it in small doses particularly because it calms the inflammation I tend to get from training. The Omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil are known to support heart, brain and eye health, too. Read more here.
PurePharma M3 is probably my favorite of the three. It’s two forms of magnesium (they’re way easier on the colon than Natural Calm), plus zinc. Mag and zinc assist in muscle recovery and help maintain electrolyte balance. Plus, when taken at night, many folks (including me) enjoy a calming effect. Read more here.
PurePharma D3 is vitamin D combined with coconut oil for better absorption. Vitamin D is implicated in many aspects of health including bone integrity and immunity. It might come as a surprise that most people are deficient in vitamin D, even those of us living in sunny locales. Read more here.
