Body Fortress Frequently Asked Questions
Why should everyone supplement with Protein, not just bodybuilders?
No matter what your level of fitness is or what goal you're chasing, Protein is an essential nutrient that the body uses for a variety of different purposes. Protein is one of the 3 major macronutrients (along with Carbohydrate and Fats) and is considered the building blocks for Muscle, Hormone Production, Enzyme Formation as well as Healthy Hair, Skins and Nails.
What makes Super Advanced Whey Protein more Powerful than Normal Whey Protein?
Super Advanced Whey Protein features a Super Recovery Blend to further enhance the benefits of their Premium Whey Protein. Each scoop provides high-quality Creatine Monohydrate, to help increase Raw Strength and Power plus L-Glutamine and Taurine, the two most abundant free form amino acids found in muscle.
This combination of potent ingredients within the Super Recovery Blend are important for athletes since it allows for faster recovery during high-intensity workouts and creates a more powerful muscle-building formula than normal whey protein.
What is the difference between Whey Protein Concentrate and Whey Protein Isolate?
Whey Concentrate and Whey Isolate are both premium sources of fast-digesting protein used to support lean muscle and strength. The main difference between the two different forms is this; Whey Isolate (and other Isolate proteins in general) are manufactured using a process known as Microfiltration. During this process, a majority of the non-protein components (Fat, Carbs, Lactose, etc...) are eliminated. The end result is a much higher % of protein by weight than what is normally found in a concentrated protein.
Why are Body Fortress products so much more affordable than products I see at my local supplement shop?
Body Fortress was built for the athletes and bodybuilders who want Premium Quality Muscle Building Supplements, without the Premium Price. Over-Hyped supplement brands want you to believe that you need to spend big cash in order to see big results. Body Fortress believes that your gains should be a result of the level of your Dedication and Commitment, not the size of your budget.
Are Body Fortress products manufactured in accordance with cGMP standards?
Yes, Body Fortress products are manufactured according to cGMP standards, as is required for all dietary supplements.
What is Creatine and is it safe to take?
Creatine is one of the most popular and misunderstood supplements on the market. It is used to increase lean muscle mass, improve overall strength and help muscles recover quickly. Body Fortress' bodies make some Creatine and it is also present in protein rich foods such as meat and fish, but in much lower levels than is obtained through supplementation.
When is the best time of day to take whey protein?
Whey protein is a great addition to your diet any time of the day. The most important time to take whey would be right after your workout, when your muscles need protein the most for recovery and to help build or maintain lean muscle.
You can also try incorporating whey protein into your diet at the following times.
- With Meals:
Drink along with your meal to increase the overall protein quality and content. You can also mix into oatmeal or add to recipes such as pancake and waffle mixes.
- In Between Meals:
Keeps levels of amino acids elevated so your body doesn't go into a catabolic state that may otherwise lead to muscle loss.
- Before Bed:
To keep levels of amino acids elevated in your body while you sleep, add whey to your last meal or snack of the day.
When is the best time for doing cardio - before a weight-training workout or after a weight-training workout? In the morning, or evening?
Deciding when to do your cardio exercises really depends on your individual goals.
- Building Lean Muscle
If your main goal is to build lean muscle, then you should limit the amount of cardio sessions you perform each week and try to do them on days when you are not weight-training. If you have to perform your cardio and weight-training workouts on the same day due to time constraints, then you should do your cardio exercise after weight-training. This will allow you to focus all of your energy on lifting before you are tired.
- Improving Cardiovascular Fitness
If you are looking to improve your endurance or cardiovascular fitness, then you should do your cardio workouts before weight-training. This will ensure that you don't deplete your energy stores needed for cardio from prior weight-training. If possible, perform your cardio workouts and weight-training workouts on different days.
- Losing weight or body fat
Since cardio exercise generally burns more calories than weight-training, you'll want to perform cardio exercise first so you can focus more of your energy on burning calories.
- Morning vs. Evening
The most important factor to consider when deciding when to do cardio is what will fit best into your schedule. If you find that your schedule in the evening is often busy or always changing, than it is probably best to perform cardio in the morning to make sure you get it out of the way. However, if you are not a morning person than you'll have to be honest with yourself and decide if you'll really be able to commit to getting out of bed early to exercise.
If your main goal is to burn fat, you may want to consider exercising first thing in the morning when your carbohydrate stores are low. One study found that the total amount of fat burned during exercise and two hours afterwards was higher when subjects ate after exercising as opposed to before.

4 Keys to Boost Your Metabolism
Weight Train At Least Twice A Week
Lean body mass will increase your metabolism. Muscle volume is a determinant of metabolism that will burn fat and calories. Muscle burns more energy than body fat at rest, so if you develop more muscle and have a higher muscle to fat ratio, you burn extra energy and more stored fat as a result. The benefits of strength training even continue when you're at rest. Your metabolism stays elevated for some time after you work out, even if you are inactive.
Get An Adequate Amount Of Sleep
If you are sleep-deprived, meaning that you are not getting enough sleep or good quality sleep, your metabolism will not function properly. Lack of sleep affects their ability to lose weight due to their nightly hormones. The two hormones that are key in this process are ghrelin and leptin. Ghrelin is the ‘go' hormone that tells you when to eat, and when you are sleep-deprived, you have more ghrelin. Leptin is the hormone that tells you to stop eating, and when you are sleep deprived, you have less leptin. More ghrelin plus less leptin equals weight gain. Not to mention, as they sleep their muscle fibers are recovering and rebuilding from muscle breakdown that took place during your workout.
Stay Hydrated and Drink More Water
The brain confuses a lack of liquid with not enough food, triggering hunger pains. Drinking enough water can suppress appetite naturally and increases the body's ability to metabolize stored fat. Water is needed to transport nutrients to your cells and transport waste out of the body. Water helps form the structures of protein and glycogen. A decrease in water intake will cause fat deposits to increase, while an increase in water intake can actually reduce fat deposits. This is thought to occur because a reduction in water decreases the efficiency of the kidneys, which results in some kidney functions being shunted to the liver. Because one of the liver's primary functions is to metabolize stored fat into usable energy for the body, it metabolizes less fat while performing functions normally performed by the kidneys. This results in less stored fat burned, and a reduction in weight loss.
Follow A Meal Plan that Incorporates Several Small Meals A Day
Eating every 3 to 4 hours, keeps your metabolism working, staves off hunger, and controls blood sugar. After about 3 hours without food, blood sugar begins to drop. After 4 hours, your body has already digested whatever nutrients you consumed from your previous meal. After 5 hours, your blood sugar begins to plummet, and you end up grabbing whatever you can to refuel.
