Supplement Recommendations

If you know anything about supplements, you know that the market is absolutely flooded, but what you may not know is that most supplements are crap, especially the MLM supplements. This is because most supplement companies put profits before quality. In fact, sales of supplements is around $20 – $3o billion dollars annually and growing. But not all supplements are created equal. Believe it or not,there are actually companies (usually the smaller unknown companies) that still take pride in their products, companies like Natural Stacks and Onnit. Which is why I am proud to announce that in addition to Bulletproof products we will also be selling supplements from Natural Stacks.

CILTEP

So what makes Natural Stacks different? Well for starters, they have a pledge to never use the word “proprietary blend”. When a company uses the word proprietary, they do not have to tell you how much of a particular ingredient is actually in the supplement. This can be very misleading, because you have no idea of what you are actually consuming. So take a look at your favorite supplement, does it say proprietary blend? If it does, there is a very good chance that it contains very little of the actual “good stuff” (which can be expensive) and instead it probably contains a lot of fillers (which are cheap). So a good rule of thumb when buying supplements – Proprietary blends, usually means a lower quality supplement for you and maximum profits for them. This is a big reason why I like Natural Stacks, because they take pride in not only telling you the exact ingredients, they also tell you the exact amount of each ingredient .

So what will we be selling?

CILTEP –  This is the supplement I am most excited about sharing with you! I am excited because CILTEP is not necessarily about making you stronger, as it is about making you smarter (becoming that complete package). CILTEP is a nootropic which is a cognitive enhancer or also known as a”smart drug” and it works by increasing your focus and memory.  In the last few years, nootropics have been all the rage in the supplement industry and for good reason, they work! Now, to be honest, you will definitely feel more focused and even more “in the moment” but the improvement is minor, these pills will not turn you into Bradley Cooper from the movie Limitless.

This is not CILTEP 😉

For more information from a 3rd party Nootropic review check out the video below. To be honest I do not recommend stacking with Modafinil, I have never done this, and because Modafinil is a prescription based drug I would check with a doctor before doing this.

But what I do “stack” CILTEP with is caffeine. I love CILTEP with bulletproof coffee and even Natural Stacks – Smart Caffeine (Which we will also be selling)

I take CILTEP in the morning with coffee or smart caffeine. I have been experimenting with nootropics and the best ones I have found are CILTEP and Alpha Brain

Vitamin D3 – If I could only take one supplement for the rest of my life, my choice would likely be Vitamin D3. Vitamin D3 is hard to find in food, we get most of our Vitamin D from the sun, and most of us get very little sun exposure, especially us that live in Seattle. But don’t take my word for it, ask your doctor for a Vitamin D test, if I was a betting man, I would bet that your are deficient.

biocreatine-creatine_1869BioCreatine – Creatine is one of the most proven supplements on the market and Natural Stacks version is designed for optimal absorption. Most people take a creatine supplement with simple carbohydrates such as grape juice, but I try to limit my sugar whenever I can so I love that a simple carbohydrate is not needed.

So in conclusion, do I think you need supplements to be healthy? The answer is no. However if you ask me if I think supplements work I can honestly say “ABSOLUTELY”!!!  Remember there is a difference between being healthy and being optimal. I am not interested in being just “healthy” I am interested in operating on all cylinders, I am looking for max performance, I don’t want to just survive, I want to THRIVE!!!

So while supplements may not be necessary, I do recommend them for best results and I give you my word that I will never recommend or sell anything that I do not use myself.

  1. What difference have you seen for yourself since you started using this?
    Can you say more about your personal experience? Thanks

    • Hi Kimberly, which specific supplement are you speaking of? I’ll assume you are asking about CILTEP. For me the difference is clarity, which is hard to describe but when I take CILTEP I feel more alert and more “in the moment”. Most importantly it takes away any brain “fogginess”, for me brain fogginess feels like my brain is operating at 70% speed/efficiency, the CILTEP helps me feel like my brain is operating at 100%. You should definitely try it. Let me know what you think.
