Joe Cross is a personal trainer and online coach, as well as a competitive bodybuilder. Looking at him you know why people trust him on his training expertise, the guys shredded to say the least! Joe cross made the transition from quantity surveyor to personal trainer 1 year ago and started his owned online coaching service: excel coaching. However, his fitness journey began 9 years ago when he started the gym and said, “he never looked back”. His “addictive personality” led him to pursue this to extremes as he became a competitive bodybuilder, with his next showing at the Arnold Sports Festival UK (2022).

Whilst you can train as hard as you want, all experts agree that nutrition plays just as large a role. So, we caught up with Joe Cross to hear about the supplements that he uses and why! 

For overall health and longevity

Strom Glutathione MAX: The Glutathione in your body can be reduced through stress to the body, such as exercise. This can increase the amount of oxidative stress on your body, which may be a precursor for many diseases.

It’s no surprise that this in on Joe’s overall health and longevity list! 

Strom Systolmax: The Strom Systolmax contains a variety of ingredients each with their own unique health benefits, from willow bark which acts as a natural painkiller (helping to reduce muscle and joint pain), to Beta Vulgaris (Beetroot) which contains a large amount of nutrients, as well as having potential benefits to athletic performance. 

Strom Reds and Greens: Reds and Greens is a blend of two formulas, with greens constituting leafy greens such as kale and spinach, as well as more exotic ingredients like spirulina, matcha and kelp. The reds on the other hand contains flavoursome and antioxidant rich products like raspberry, guava, and goji berry. The combination of the two creates a highly nutritious blend, packed full of iron, antioxidants and much more. In other words, a no brainer for overall health and longevity. 

Strom Support Max: The Strom Support Max is very much what it says on the tin, a unique blend of ingredients designed to support your overall health a wellbeing. From vitamin D3, one of the most important vitamins, to CoQ10, which studies suggest improving hearth health, and Hawthorn berry, which helps control high blood pressure and cholesterol, every ingredient has unique benefits contributing to a health body.

These are crucial to wide range of functions in the body. An easy way to get many of the necessary vitamins and minerals needed for your body to function. 

Supplement Needs Omega 3: Omega-3 fatty acids are incredibly important, with many benefits to both the body and mind. For the brain Omega-3 has been shown to benefit brain health, as well as fighting depression and anxiety, and more. For the body, Omega 3 can improve sleep, improve bone, and joint health, as well as being good for the skin.

CSN Krill Oil: Krill Oil is an Omega 3 oil extracted from the Antarctic Krill species Euphausia Superba. Compared to standard fish oil, which is found in triglyceride format, the omega 3 in krill is in a phospholipid format which is more bioactive meaning it is more easily absorbed and utilised by the body. Furthermore, phospholipids play a key role in cell function.
