JYM Supplement Users Guide
Get the best results possible from the best supplements on the market with this comprehensive owner's manual for the entire JYM product line.

Updated September 7, 2018

Taking supplements for optimal results isn’t just a random thing. There’s a science to it, literally. Timing is critical, as is proper dosing and the biochemical interactions between individual ingredients. I’ve taken care of formulating all the JYM products for you in the right combinations and in the safest, most effective doses.

Unfortunately, compliance regulations on supplement labeling prevents me from listing the most effective and thorough dosing instructions on some JYM products. That said, there are a few tricks of the trade I recommend implementing to achieve the best results possible with the JYM Supplement Science line. I’ve outlined them all right here, in one place, for each of my nine individual products. Follow these “rules” while hitting the gym hard and eating well and you’ll be leaving nothing to chance.

Storing Your JYM Supplements

To avoid any breakdown of ingredients, your supplements should never be exposed to prolonged heat. Store them indoors in a dry place at room temperature. Generally speaking, they should be kept at between 32 and 80 degrees. Feel free to reserve a kitchen cabinet for all your JYM products – just make sure that cabinet isn’t right above or below a heat source like your oven or stove. Your best bet is to keep them in the pantry or other cabinet away from the stove and refrigerator. Both the refrigerator and the bathroom should be avoided due to humidity, though Omega JYM does well in the fridge.

Pre JYM

Post JYM

The guidelines here are very similar to Pre JYM, since the two products contain several common ingredients (BCAAs, creatine, beta-alanine, betaine):

How to Take the Entire JYM Supplement Line Together

Due to the massive amount of requests from people for an article that explains how to take all of the JYM Supplement products in a single day, I put together the following examples. Below, you will find a sample workout day, based on what time you train, as well as a sample rest day that shows you when to take what supplement.

The point of this article will be just a template for you to use to incorporate the JYM line of supplements into your daily diet. Remember, the diet samples below are just a template to use and not a meal plan that I suggest you follow every day. Use the samples just as an outline of where to take each of the JYM products during the day depending on when you train,

The sample daily diets below also include a supplement that I suggest you take in addition to the JYM supplements: Vitamin D3. The importance of this vitamin is explored in the Vita JYM Ingredient Breakdown, linked above.

The daily totals for these diets are: 3700 calories, 335 g protein, 340 g carbs, and 110 grams of fat. For a 200 pound person that equals 19 calories per pound, about 1.6 grams of protein per pound, just shy of 1.7 grams of carbs per pound, and just over 0.5 grams of fat per pound of body weight.
