SUPPLEMENTS RELATED QUESTIONS
Should I take supplements?
Taking supplements is not a new phenomenon in any way. Even in history we find that strength athletes (e.g. wrestlers) and soldiers were used to take special mixture of products during their training, though they were using crude techniques available at that time. Scientific studies over the last two decades has resulted in significant advances in preparation and training of elite athletes in terms of nutrition. It is most important to understand the quantity (how much food OR nutrition one should take) and quality of nutrients (i.e. what kind of combination of fats, carbohydrates, proteins and active nutraceuticals an athlete should take). So, yes nutrition plays a very important part for your health, fitness and performance.
Where should I start with the supplements?
At Tara, we have made it very simple for you to choose your supplements. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate OR professional athlete, supplements is the main requirement of every athlete. You should simple select your goal OR Category from the homepage and choose the most appropriate supplement for your needs.
Should I take supplement when I am not training?
Yes, since it takes 2 to 3 days for any muscle to recover after training, it becomes infact more important to take supplements during rest days.
Why there is more than one supplement for each goal OR category?
It is hard to define one supplement that can cater all your nutritional requirements to achieve your specific goal. e.g. If you want to lose weight, you may have to lower your calorie intake, you may have suppress your hunger, you may have to increase your burning of calories (thermogenesis) or you may have to opt meal replacement OR else you have to do all these efforts to lose your weight. So based on different ways of achieving the target, we have to develop different supplements.
Does the theme support basic WordPress functions?
You may think I’m crazy for even bringing this up, but there is a reason. The “glass half full” kind of girl that I am always thought all themes supported core WordPress features. The truth is that this is an incorrect assumption.
I have an SEO client I am working with right now that has a theme so poorly coded it is killing me. It lacks basic elements like proper spacing, ordered bullets, featured images for posts, commenting, and on and on. The creator of the theme just doesn’t know WordPress as much as he should. I don’t think he intentionally left these items out, but they are in fact missing.
Prior to buying any premium WordPress theme, make sure the theme supports core features like: WordPress menus, widgets, multiple sidebars, featured images, blog page beyond that of the home page, individual posts, author boxes, commenting, 404 page, sitemaps, etc.
How much protein should i take?
According to Food and Nutrition (FNB) of the National Academics of Sciences Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) for protein is 0.8 g/kg up to ~ 2.0 g/kg, a range expressed as 10 % to 35% of energy intake. It is important to recognize that the protein intake range relates to body weight and not energy intake. So an 80 kilogram person can take up to 160 grams of protein without any adverse effects, whereas a 90 kilogram person can take up to 180 grams of protein.
How can I gain weight?
This is a common problem for athletes as well as common person in India. To understand weight gain is simple. There are mainly two things to remember when you want to gain weight: 1. Take more calories than you can spend each day: Taking more calories (written as kcal) means eating more but eating healthy. A healthy person spends approximately 45 to 55 calories (written as kcal) per kilogram of body weight. For a 70 kg person, it means that it should burn between 3150 to 3850 calories (written as kcal), therefore his/her intake should be nearly 300 to 500 kcal more than this figure and should concentrate about putting up ½ kg to 1 kg per week. TaraNutricare has 3 important products that can help you achieve weight gain i.e. MAGIK MASS, BODY GROW and AMINO MASS. For more swift results take these products in combination with Gluta Ex Pure and BIO GAIN WHEY. 2. Right combination of your intake: All the weight gain category products are developed keeping in mind the latest research and best possible combination of proteins, carbohydrates and fats required for weight gain.
I want to gain lean mass and burn extra fats, which product I should take?
We feel it is one of the hardest things to gain lots of muscles and lose fats at the same time simply because it requires very well calculated discipline in terms of dietary intake, training and adequate rest. In our experience it should be achieved by concentrating on one where as avoiding the other. e.g. When you want more muscle tissue but want to avoid unnecessary weight gain, you should increase the intake of proteins, reduce carbohydrate and should take only healthy fats. When you are focusing on burning unwanted fats, you should increase thermogenesis (burning of calories (expressed as kcal)) but should also keep high levels of proteins intake and should do some strength training along with your aerobics and other fat burning exercises. BIOGAIN WHEY, Gluta-Ex Pure, VEG PRO, Thermocut and AbsorbiLean can help you keep high intake of protein, burn fat and minimise intake of carbs and fats in the food whereas Storm Xtreme, BCAAs and GH Boost can make lean muscles without adding up any fatty tissue.
Should I take the powder products with milk?
Yes, there is no harm in taking any of the products with milk however our products are equally effective if you take them with water only. Infact many people around the world are allergic to milk, whether it is because of lack of enzyme called lactase which metabolise milk sugar “Lactose” OR allergy to casein (a protein in the milk), so in that case we suggest you to avoid milk and take the products with water only. Infact we feel they are light and easy to consume with water.
Is Glutamine is a must supplement?
The answer is YES! Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body with relatively high concentrations observed in muscle and blood plasma. While excercising, glutamine is released from the muscles and reduced glutamine concentration has mostly been reported in over trained athletes. To minimise catabolism and to recover the muscles swiftly, Glutamine is must. Glutamine not only helps recover y of muscles but also used as anti-inflammatory mediator, to cure over training syndrome (OS), maintain normal plasma glutamine concentrations in athletes, increases immunity and may also be beneficial in reducing tumour growth, to minimise length of stay in hospital for bone patients and to treat burned patients.
Is Creatine safe, does body stops making creatine when you take supplement?
Creatine is most researched & studied supplement throughout the world. It is absolutely safe as a supplement and to answer your question about body will stop making Creatine, It is not that simple how we assume about working of human physiological functions but let me tell you that 1 to 2 grams of Creatine is found in your daily intake of Fish OR Meat, that means we should not eat fish OR meat because body may stop making Creatine. For further clarification please read a report from European Scientific Committee on Creatine: http://ec.europa.eu/food/fs/sc/scf/out70_en.pdf
Where do you source your whey protein?
Currently we are importing all our whey protein isolate / whey protein concentrate and whey protein hydrolysate from France, Germany and Ireland. Except Whey Protein Isolate, India is well capable of producing whey protein Concentrate and Whey Protein Hydrolysate, but however in our experience it is currently not possible to produce Instantised whey protein (Readily mixable) and most of Indian origin whey is more foamy and acidic at times.

How should i take the product? Can I take with milk OR water?
We develop our products to be taken with water. However all of them can also be taken with milk. All details about “how to take” are clearly expressed under “Recommended use” on the label as well as under “Recommended Use” tab on the web. When we develop taste profile of the product OR do any trial testing, we do it with water only. The only difference that you may notice that it can be more sweet in taste with milk than with water since milk has its own sugar called “Lactose” which may enhance sweetness profile of the product. It will though have no significant difference on the function of the product.
