Nutritional supplements for sports

Which nutritional supplements to use for sports

Nutritional supplements can complement a healthy and balanced diet for athletes. Here are some common nutritional supplements that athletes use.

Protein powder and protein shakes before exercise

Proteins are essential for muscle repair and building. Protein powders, such as whey protein, casein protein or plant-based protein powders, can be useful for getting enough protein, especially after intense workouts. They can be added to smoothies, shakes or meals. We have Whey Protein , Whey Isolate and Vegan Protein .

Use creatine before exercising

Creatine is a natural substance that is produced in the body and plays a role in energy production during intensive training. It can help improve performance, especially during short-term, explosive efforts such as weightlifting or sprinting.

Use BCAAs amino acids before exercise

Branched-Chain Amino Acids ( BCAAs ) are amino acids including leucine, isoleucine and valine. They are used to reduce muscle breakdown, promote recovery and reduce fatigue during training.

Use omega-3 fatty acids before exercising

Omega-3 fatty acids , such as those in fish oil, have anti-inflammatory properties and can contribute to a healthy heart and joints. They can also help reduce muscle soreness and promote post-workout recovery.

Use vitamins and minerals before exercising

Intense training can increase the need for certain vitamins and minerals. It may be advisable to take a multivitamin supplement to ensure you get enough nutrients. We have the multivitamin , magnesium and vitamin D3 .

Use a weight gainer shake before exercising

A weight gainer is a nutritional supplement specifically designed to help people gain weight and muscle mass. It is intended for people who have difficulty getting enough calories through their normal diet and who need extra calories quickly. The aim is to build or gain lean muscle mass. We recommend the diet shake rather than a weight gainer supplement. The diet shake is a meal with calories and vitamins and minerals, a weight gainer often does not contain vitamins and minerals. That is why we do not sell weight gainer supplements.
