My Most Recommended Sports Supplements

I will always take a food-first approach to achieving optimal performance but for athletes who have a higher nutrient requirement due to the demands of training, smart supplementation can make all the difference. Prevention is better than cure, particularly if you want to avoid injury and fortify your immune system. With that in mind, here are my most recommended sports supplements to clients looking to maintain their health, optimise performance and recovery.

Supplement

Why you might need it

What it does

Suggested dosage

-Muscle tears, strains and sprains

-Achey joints and osteoarthritis

-Dry, creaky joints

-Muscle soreness and impaired recovery

-Intense training requirements

A Collagen, Chondroitin, Omega-3, Glucosamine, D3, C, E, and B12 combined supplement to id joint and muscle health, help injury recovery and prevention.

As per packet directions

-Muscle soreness -Muscle contraction -Coordination and response time in sport -Muscle cramps -Bone health -Lazy bowels

Highly absorbable and gentle on the stomach, making it a good choice for those with a sensitive digestive system. Glycine has a calming effect on the brain and I have found this type most effective for clients dealing with extreme stress and anxiety.

RDA 320-420mg daily. I recommend a higher strength for active lifestyles and taking this with dinner at night, due to it's sleepy qualities!

-Injury or surgery recovery -Frequent illnesses -Low testosterone -Gut health

Aids wound healing.

Immune system support.

Contributes to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood.

Important mineral for maintaining a healthy gut bacteria.

RDA for athletes is 15-30mg per day. Follow packet instructions

Beet It Sport Nitrate 400


Beet It Sport Nitrate 400

Informed Sport Accredited | Vegan

-Improve endurance -Improve muscle contraction

Beetroot contains a condensed level of nitrates, which according to sports science studies, boosts stamina to help you exercise longer, improve blood flow, and help lower blood pressure. When consumed, nitrate is converted in the mouth and stomach to nitric oxide (NO) which has several roles in the body including the opening of blood vessels. This allows more blood and oxygen to be delivered to muscles. Reportedly, nitrate may also reduce the energy cost of exercise and positively affect muscle contraction. Aids endurance.

Consume 1 or 2 shots per day for 6 consecutive days before competition and consume a final 1 or 2 shots between 90-120 minutes before race/competition

-Strength plateaus

-Wanting to increase muscle mass

-Reduce DOMS

Optimise training recovery

Creatine is one of the few unanimously agreed supplements scientifically proven to improve strength, increase muscle mass, and help muscles recover quickly during exercise. 5g creatine daily is suggested but I particularly love using this product because it has the added benefit of electrolytes to further aid muscle contraction and recovery.

10g daily as per packet instructions. But get even more benefit by drinking intra or immediately post training

-Help meeting your daily protein requirements

Easy source of high quality, easily digestible protein, unanimously agreed by scientific studies as beneficial. I particularly love Efectiv because these mix well, go into bakes and the range of flavours are delicious!

As required but remember - supplements are supplementary! Aim to get the majority of your protein from whole food sources
