Performance Supplement FAQs

What Are Sports Performance Supplements? 

We all know that supplementation in sport can be quite a contentious subject but we’re not discussing illegal steroids or any other ‘questionable’ sport supplements. Legal sports performance supplements are products that have the potential to support your body before, during or after workouts. They have been formulated to help: 

  • Enhance athletic performance 
  • Meet nutritional needs
  • Improve nutrient deficiencies 
  • Fulfil personal fitness goals

Remember, sports performance supplements are not meant to be considered as a replacement to a healthy food regime, rather an addition to one. 

Why Are Performance Supplements Needed? 

Sometimes, we may not be getting all we need to perform at our best in our chosen sport or activity from our food regime alone. Other times, we may just want a little extra boost for our workout. Whatever the reason, there is a sports performance supplement out there that can help you feel raring to go, support healthy muscle growth and help you recover after. 

What Are The Best Performance Supplements For Muscle Power? 

In our opinion, creatine is the best sports performance supplement to take if you are looking to increase body power. Often thought of as being just for bodybuilders and sprinters, creatine is actually a well-researched supplement. It is commonly used by sportsmen and women in all disciplines, both professional and recreational. It is a form of fuel, the type used in short, sharp, powerful movements and can be found in foods such as meat and fish. 

Research suggests that supplementing with at least 3g of creatine in pill or powder form everyday has positive effects on resistance training and high-intensity intermittent training. 

What Are The Best Supplements For Joints and Flexibility? 

Studies have shown that the best sports performance supplements for joints and flexibility are omega-3 fatty acids, found in oily fish such as sardines, mackerel and salmon. They have a positive impact on our joint health by helping to reduce inflammation caused by heavy training or other kinds of stress on the body. Purified omega-3 in the form of pills or liquids enable us to take more on board, especially if you don’t eat oily fish as part of your diet. 

What Are The Best Supplements for Muscle Gain and Strength?

In order to gain muscle and strength, we need two things:

  • Targeted, regular training in the form of bodyweight and barbell-style exercises 
  • For speedy, noticeable change, we need to eat enough protein as this is what the body uses to rebuild tiny tears in the muscle fibres caused by exercise

Up to date research suggests that the general guidelines around consuming 0.8g of protein per kg of body weight every day is not sufficient for those with sports goals and that we should aim for a minimum of 1.4g to 2g.
