For the past few years of trying to complete large volumes of training, shift work and a sum times unorganized life (ok so regularly unorganized :-), supplements have played a varying role. To start with it was shear convinace and not much thought went into quality or effective dosages but what was popular, tasted good and seemed to work.
However, since experiencing some health issues mainly related to stomach health I realised how much artificial crap goes into most vitamins and supplements, not only that but what some of them are made from, especially BCAAs.
On my last trip to my favourite Health store, Healthy Life Townsville I noticed a new product on the shelf and as always curiosity lead the way and I got chatting to Paul, only to discover this is a product line he and a couple of business partners have brought out. After a good hour of Q & A time with Paul (if your reading this thanks again for your time, knowledge and honesty), I decided to give the BCAAs a go for myself but also asked if he could share a little information about his product as I believe its fantastic that a local business is taking on the big guys and bringing out such a great, pure and clinically effective dosed product!
The second product line I’ve recently discovered (again thanks to Paul) is ATP science which is another Australian company based in Qld that is also making an impact with great natural products which are designed by a naturpath using herps and remedies that are studied and researched to be effective.
Recently I sent them some questions regarding how I could best use there products as an endurance athlete, not only did they answer me but also sent out some free products to try. So far I’m impressed! Check them out at http://atpscience.com
* I’d like to add this isn’t a plug to go buy the product but to better understand what goes into your body, I’m not sponsored, nor receive andcommission from Healthy Life, however I get lots of honest information and great satisfaction in seeing small local businesses make a big impact in health and well-being. So please have a read, leave a comment or question as I’d love to know what others are using if at all…
Above all remember supplements should only be considered once your diet is good, not used to cover up for poor nutrition choices!!!
BODYBY NUTRITION FOR THE ELITE

BodyBy Pty Ltd founder, Scott Piper, is now joined by myself, Paul Amante and Zane Fahey, as directors of the company.
