My running lately has been on the slower side, my 5K time is hovering around 30 minutes. I have been trying to just run and not worry about time, but that is harder than it seems, especially when my competitive side rears it’s ugly head. Just as I was getting down on myself about my slower running time I received this awesome package of supplements from SD Pharmaceuticals!
I had requested to try out just the Green Coffee Bean, but was delighted that they sent me all of these, instead of just that one!!! The timing couldn’t have been better.
It’s actually funny that I also just started taking pharmacology for my Bachelor’s program and we just learned more about supplements. This was not such a good thing, because we learned that most supplements are not regulated which can actually make them dangerous. As I read about SD Pharmaceuticals, my mind was put to ease at trying out their supplements, because while the FDA does not regulate them, the research team at SD Pharmaceuticals only produces the most sophisticated ingredients and formulas. The ingredients and formulas’s they use have been clinically validated in human research studies. If there is not solid research behind an ingredient, the SD Pharmaceuticals research team will not use it.
This is what distinguishes SD Pharmaceuticals from other sports supplement companies and these facts made me feel comfortable about trying out all their supplements!
I decided to start out with the Green Coffee Bean stacked with the Garcinia Cambogia as an afternoon supplement to my current exercise regimen.
The Garcinia Cambogia helps to reduce appetite, blocks fat build-up and storage, and promotes fat loss. The Green Coffee Bean helps to increase fat loss, provides healthy antioxidants and is 100% natural and caffeine-free. I took one of each of these supplements together between two and three in the afternoon. This combination not only quelled my mid-day munchies, but they also provided me with a boost of energy I desperately needed for my late afternoon runs.
Check out this side to side comparison of the same exact run with the supplements and without.
The boost of energy I felt during the run with the supplementation was awesome!! This run was actually one of my fastest in quite awhile. As you can see without the supplementation I was close to a minute slower per mile. The great part about it this was that it wasn’t just a fluke, all of my runs were so much better every time I used that combination of supplements. The runs felt energized and dare I say easier, these supplements were the boost I needed!! The best part was that I never felt jittery. In the past when I have tried using supplementation they almost always made me feel like I was going to jump out of my skin, but not with these!!
I am continuing to use these until I finish the bottles and then I will try out the other supplements prior to making a decision on which I want to purchase.
The other supplements I received are:
- Raspberry Ketone 200: This supplement helps to inhibit fat accumulation, increases calorie expenditure and increases fat breakdown. I have actually supplemented with Raspberry Ketone in the past, although not SD Pharmaceutical brand, and have found it to be fantastic in helping to reduce my body fat.
- Dendrobium 600: This supplement increases physical energy, endurance and stamina. It also improves mental focus and provides a sustained energy with no crash or jitters!! This is actually the next supplement I plan on using, I am hoping it helps with my concentration for school and gives me extra energy for my runs!
- Diindolylmethane: This supplement supports healthy hormonal balance.
You can take these supplements individually or you can stack them to maximize your results! For instance, by stacking Green coffee Bean, Raspberry Ketone and Garcinia, you can maximize your fat loss!!!!
Have you tried any of these supplements? What do you think of them?
