Innovation Gym has a zero supplement policy. We don’t recommend or sell any supplements purposely so that you can trust our dietary advice. We have nothing to gain from lies. We know that you do not need them to reach your fitness goals. We will never sell supplements in our gym. Too many people are convinced that supplements provide nutrients that we cannot consume in sufficient quantities from eating. In most cases this is completely false and people can get all the nutrients they need from eating a very simple whole foods diet.
In addition, the number of incidents of liver damage from dietary supplements has tripled in the last 10 years (1) . The F.D.A estimates that approximately 70% of dietary supplement companies are not even following basic quality control standards. In the case of amino acids, there has been a dogma for decades now stating that individuals who are seeking to build muscle need to ingest approximately 1g of protein for every pound they weigh. This is total BS. The majority of protein our intestines could absorb can be acquired from a healthy balanced diet and much of the amino acids in protein shakes are not absorbed by our intestines and simply create really expensive stool.
