No, stacking supplements doesn’t refer to building sweet towers out of all your tubs of powder (though you may find yourself needing to do this too). Supplement stacking is all about choosing complimentary supplements and taking them properly to help you achieve certain goals. Want to know more? Good. Here are the 5 reasons people are starting to stack their supplements, and why you should too.
Magic Pill Myth
It’s unfortunate really, but there just isn’t one magic pill that does it all. Now, there may be many claims out there that tell you this one little pill is all you really need or this powder has it all! But it’s important to remember this just isn’t true. Every person is different and every human body needs a slightly different balance of supplements to work perfectly for that body. Long story short, no one pill can do it all for everyone.
For this reason, stacking supplements is the best way to ensure you are meeting your needs and not taking a bunch of other fillers unnecessarily.
There is so much research out there now discussing the importance of synergy when it comes to supplementation. The simple truth is that most supplements work significantly better when coupled with very particular other supplements. Taking just the one may get you marginal results, but taking the two or more together will maximize your results. That has a good ring to it, “maximized results.”
Creating this synergy with your supplements of choice is reason number two for starting your supplement stack.
We all have different goals. Cutting fat, building muscle, increasing performance. These are all common goals for gym-goers, but exactly how you choose to achieve them should be completely up to you. As previously mentioned, every person’s body is different. This means that some supplements will work better for others and some will fall short of expectations.
Stacking your supplements allows you the freedom to customize your blend and target specific goals you have in mind for your health and wellness.
Similarly to the way synergizing your supplements can maximize results, timing your supplements can have the same effect. Depending on the stack you’ve decided to start taking, you’ll want to research how the timing of taking certain supplements will impact their effectiveness. A slightly silly example: you definitely don’t want to be taking caffeine right before bed.
Stacking supplements is a great way to accomplish your goals, but taking them at the right time is paramount. Make sure you stack and time your supplements in the best way to help you see gains.
The bottom line is simple. Stacking supplements gets you better results. Because there’s no one stop shop on the supplement train, customizing, synergizing, and timing your own supplement stack is the best way to ensure you are using supplements properly.
Doing so will get you faster, more impactful results that make your time and effort in the gym worthwhile.
