Lately, I have been asked quite a bit about the importance of protein in ones diet. I did some research to complement what I already knew and thought I post a quick note about my findings. There are two different types of protein to improve performance, whey and soy.

Iron deficiency is the most common mineral deficiency in the world and can affect your active lifestyle as well as your everyday life.
As it is essential for physical activity, a major function of iron is to carry oxygen to the cells all over the body. When you’re even slightly depleted on iron, it takes you more effort to do the same amount of physical activity than if your iron stores were full.
