INGREDIENT INFORMATION PAGE (A)
I have added this page as an information resourse , technical information on the ingredience of the supplements we use
It is important at Healy's Health to understand WHY ?
we indorce and use certain supplements .
After 30+ years experience we have heard all the
'sales Hype' and the deception of marketing companies
and the associated B.S.
Healy's are only interested in what really works and has stood the test of time and there are only a basic few that have, in this page we give you a deeper knowledge that the 'informed choice' you make at Healy's Supplements is an
Educated one based on our reference points with time tested INTEGRITY.
Graham Healy's reference letters from some of the longest standing supplement compainies in Australia, relationships build over 30 years
of helping clients with the 'right advise' on nutrition and supplements.
WHY DO I NEED SUPPLEMENTS ?
Did you notice a lot of Athletes are 'being done' for preformance enhancing 'Drugs' lately in the News ?
WHY are they taking them?
The answer is to speed up recovery and repair time.
Not that I agree with any of that, as a Drug Free 100% lifetime natural Athlete myself and if you are a non-cheating 'Natural' then you have to look very carefull at your nutrition firstly and number one
and then the supplements as the 'multiplyer effect' for good nutrition.
Yeah, But WHY take SUPPLEMENTS ? I'm not a super athlete , myself and wife just want to get in shape and tone up for summer .
I Started out looking at supplements over 30 years ago , when I bought my Nautilus Gym in 1988 I had to then explain what worked and what didn't work to Gym Members supplement and nutrition wise, people that know me personally,know that I am not the sort of person to recommend to people something that I don't 100% believe in myself and not only believe in, but have tried and tested myself first(forget the sales rep mentality, give me the proven FACTS ,many sales reps become very frustrated with me as I'm a 'Give me the facts man' and Chemistry and Physics were my favourite subjects at school and college, later I read every anatomy reference book I could find , did every course I could to understand the body's muscular system and the bio mechanics and bio chemistry.
During this evolution process I would like to thank the following mentors.
Leo Young Sports Scientist , Peter Rhodes Sports Dietician, Allan Bourushek Dietitian, Rodney Campbell head nautropath and technical researcher with Nestle nutrition (who bought out Australian owned Musashi Sports Supplements) see Rodney's kind reference above, The Head naturapath of Bullivants Mark Duncome (When Vaughan Bullivant (founder) still personally ran and owned the company),who I spent countless hours with and recieved countless books and facts data sheets for my library of information.
and over recent years I would like to thank the Maxwell family , Dan, John and Fay Maxwell (Founders of Urban Muscle) these Guys have been in the supplement business for 20 years the number one supplement business in Australia(sponsored natural Body building for over 10 years), advising many companies and sponsored body-builders about formulations , until they created their own Formulations here in Brisbane Australia being 100% Australian owned and quality controlled Local company

Yours in Health
Founder Healy's Health 1985
HERE ARE THE MAIN REASONS WHY I RECOMMEND SUPPLEMENTS
Appart from the Healy's Recommemded Nutrition Plan as first and Foremost
It takes 2 to 3 hours for most food to digest into your system and get into the blood-stream
Your Body NEEDS the nutrient within 30 minutes AFTER training to Repair & Recover otherwise it breaks down the existing muscle to self-repair
So Nutrition ALONE is not enough , you will BURN OUT , TOO SORE,TOO TIRED,TOO HARD (you all know the story)
When you Exercise INTENSELY DAMAGE is done to the Muscles , the body goes under HIGH STRESS FACTORS
What you need then is RECOVERY & REPAIR & REST
Thats where SUPPLEMENTS COME IN supplements are like an ambulance to a crash scene ,that crash scene being your damaged muscles post-exercise
BUT ONLY THE SUPPLEMENTS THAT HEALY'S HEALTH HAVE APPROVED ! ........WHY?
Because there is a lot of 'rubbish out there' that Healy's Heath will not associate our name with the 'Marketing BS out there'
That means we have QUALITY Control and ingredient quality testing in place this guarentees the product Standards at the highest possible level with customer TRUST in Healy's Health and with our associates at Urban Muscle
SO THEREFORE Healy's Health can Guarentee the Supplements we prescribe actually WORK and are ACTUALLY GOOD FOR YOU.
IF all of the ABOVE is in PLACE then the RIGHT SUPPLEMENTS have a MULTIPLYER EFFECT on RECOVERY & REPAIR
THE KEY is that SUPPLEMENTS taken within the 30 minute window of opportunity after training (and some pre-workour)
have a dramatic effect or the 'multiplyer' effect on your Recovery & Repair and also your Nutrition is also effectively Multiplied and enhanced There are really only a handfull of 'tried and tested' Supplement ingredience that have stood the test of time over the last 20 years,and have had the Quality testing over time behind them both with sports men and women and sports science.
The Supplements listed below and the reasons for thaking them have not changed over the last 20 years or so , the quality has been basically improved in some of the elements , but the sports science behind them is still the same
WORD OF CAUTION the Quantity and the Quality of an ingredient is the KEY for example say Branch Chain Amino's BCAA'S if you dont take this supplement in about the amount of 3 to 5 grams quanity post training that level of dosage IS EFFECTIVE , under that dosage is almost a waste of money also in the supplement/plant Tribulus depending on what part of the plant and the strength of the active ingredient protodioscin levels is the key here .
The COMMERCIAL TRICKERY IS THIS miniscule amounts of active ingredience (because its a cheap short-cut) that has all the 'names' on the canister but the amounts and the active ingredience are almost missing in action.
Another Example of this is Caffeine mixed with Creatine ???
Its a scientific proven FACT that Caffeine cancells out the effect of Creatine ,yet commercial companies pack their creatine products with caffeine, and their so-call 'pre workout' formulas high levels of caffeine WHY ?
A CHEAP QUICK FIX THAT'S COUNTER PRODUCTIVE SCIENTIFICALLY ......main Reason .....caffeine is CHEAP!
and the industry is full of this commercial 'deception' and 'trickery'.
URBAN MUSCLE our EXCLUSIVE LINE Meets Healy's Health Strict Critera for ingredience QUANITY & QUALITY PER SERVE
and ACTIVE INGREDIENCE POTENCY we GUARENTEE IT .
Yours in Health , Graham Healy
Compare the Quanity of the actual ingredients in our product with any competitors
Protodioscin 501 mg per 3 caps
without protodioscin the tribulus is low quaity and 'rubbish' most brands have little or no protodioscin the ACTIVE INGREDIENT that makes it WORK!
Recovery (reserrect) each serve has
5 grams ( 1 teaspoon) of L-Glutamine
5 grams (1 teaspoon) of BCAAS branch chain aminos
1.5 grams of HMB hydroxy-methylbutyrate
The Quanity per serve is required for GENUINE RESULTS
many retail compainies cheat clients with commercial BS and the actual quanity of dosages in their supplements dont stack up !
