RM Trainer gives you some examples of ingredients that can help you improve your results and feel better, especially in a healthy way.

Broccoli is a vegetable that provides a great complexity of flavors and textures and is a great ally for your muscles. It can provide about 350 mg of potassium per 100gr, essential for muscle contraction. Just as it has twice the vitamin C that oranges have (115mg for 100gr). It can prevent infections and keep you healthy for your workouts.

Watercress is a vegetable that provides large amounts of vitamin C and iron. Vitamin C is known to protect you from oxidative stress and that iron will help reduce muscle fatigue when you do those more intense workouts.

Finally, green tea from Camellia sinensis has high concentrations of catechins that are phytonutrients and have a great antioxidant action. Its regular consumption can promote the loss of body fat and decrease the abdominal perimeter acting through thermogenesis, that is, it speeds up your metabolism and increases your body temperature.

If you do not normally use these foods in your diet, then RM Trainer recommends that you start using them quickly.

To consume them, broccoli is an excellent accompaniment to fish dishes, watercress, both in salads and in soup, is a great choice and green tea can be taken at any time of the day, should only be avoided after 5 pm if you have trouble sleeping.

Supplementation? Before that, look for the solution in your food choices.
