I’ve been asked so many times “Steve what supplements do you take to help you look after your body” and for years I’ve told people to look after my body I’ve used the following Omega 3,6,9 oils, Glucosamine and Vitamin D3 (Vit D3 since my stress fracture in 2013). I’ve used all the above along with energy drinks, gels and a little whey protein after hard sessions and that’s it. So I’ve decided to have my own made and so I went direct to a few GMP certified manufactures (Good Manufacturing Practice within the UK) and have developed the following products.
Whey Protein plus B vitamins
Endurance athletes tend to focus on carbohydrate intake and pay little, if any, attention to protein. As a result, protein deficiency appears often among endurance athletes, with its inevitable negative effects on performance and health. Serious endurance athletes do need considerable amounts of protein, because maintenance, repair, and growth of lean muscle mass all depend on it, as well as optimum immune system function. Low dietary protein lengthens recovery time, causes muscle weakness, and suppresses the immune system. Chronic protein deficiency will cancel the beneficial effects of your workouts; instead, you will become susceptible to fatigue, lethargy, anemia, and possibly even more severe disorders. Athletes with over training syndrome usually have protein deficiency.
Omega 3 6 9 Fish Oil
Omega 3,6,9 is recommended for helping to reduce the risk of heart disease. It is also thought to help with pain associated with joint and muscle tension due to it’s anti-inflammatory properties.
Omega 3,6,9 are the most essential fatty acids DHA and EPA are distilled to remove unhealthy, saturated fats, cholesterol and pollutants.
Glucosamine is naturally produced by the body to support the growth of healthy joint tissue. As we age, it is common for our body’s ability to produce and store Glucosamine to reduce. Excess stress and injury can also cause Glucosamine levels to decline. Therefore, many people find high quality Glucosamine Sulphate tablets to complement a healthy diet and support the body’s natural supply of Glucosamine.
High Strength Glucosamine Sulphate 1000mg is one of the best selling joint supplements in the UK. Each tablet is produced to the highest GMP approved manufacturing standards. To ensure that each tablet is consistently of the highest quality, Glucosamine is combined with low levels of potassium chloride (2KCl). This acts to stabilise the Glucosamine, and has been proven in clinical trials to be the most effective type of Glucosamine in supplement form.
Frequently referred to as the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D3 is essential for everyday health and well being but it’s not always easy to guarantee your daily dose. Vitamin D3 helps to maintain strong bones and teeth. This is why I was recommended to take it in 2013 when I had my stress fracture in my tibia and I’ve taken it ever since. It’s also known for supporting normal function of the immune system, normal cell division and normal muscle function.
