5 Recommended Supplements For Athletes

INTRA-WORKOUT
Replenish & Hydrate
During a workout of any length, be sure to drink water and replenish electrolyte stores to prevent dehydration. For training workouts or games over an hour, you will also need to replenish your carbohydrate supply for energy and kick-start muscle recovery. Fortify is a great option because it provides both immediate and extended energy to fuel you all the way to the end of your workout or game.

PROTEIN POWDER
Muscle Building Results
Supplementing with protein can help you improve your performance during training and your games. In general, your protein intake should compromise 20-40% of your total caloric intake. Tip: Aim for .5-.7g of protein per pound of bodyweight.

MULTIVITAMIN
Natural Energy & Essential Nutrients
Training for a sport can create deficiencies in certain vitamins and minerals due to the stress intense exercise can place on the body, requiring a proper multivitamin to ensure the body is working properly.

OILS
Lean Support & Essential Oils
The American diet tends to be too low in Omega-3s (polyunsaturated fat with cardiovascular, cognitive, and anti-inflammatory benefits), so most Americans would benefit from at least 1,000mg of Omega-3s per day via fish oil or flaxseed oil to help meet their daily needs. Omega-3s can slow down and even inhibit muscle breakdown and fight inflammation, which is critical to muscle recovery from a tough workout.

POST-WORKOUT
Reduce Soreness & Recover
Post-workout supplementation consists of feeding hungry muscles and replenishing glycogen stores, amino acids, and even vitamins and minerals that are used up while exercising.
