So you're serious about your martial arts training? You're training regularly, eating a balanced diet and getting enough sleep? Great! But maybe your joints are aching? You keep getting run down? Or you're just not feeling recovered between your training sessions? If you're answering yes to these questions, you may want to try a variety of these supplements!

Here are our top 5 supplements that we recommend for martial artists or active people that exercise regularly:

1. Glucosamine

Glucosamine can help to reduce pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints.

2. Vitamin D3

Vitamin D3 helps facilitate normal immune system function, maintain healthy bones and can boost your mood.

3. Whey Protein

Whey Protein is a great protein source to promote muscular recovery. Try including a scoop at breakfast or after workout if your protein levels are low!

4. Vitamin C

Vitamin C has a huge amount of benefits but will also help to fight off disease and strengthen your body’s natural defences.

5. Omega 3

Omega 3 can help prevent join pain and stiffness. Omega 3 can also improve brain function which should help you concentrate more in class!

Lastly, make sure you’re prioritising your nutrition plan and optimising your sleep pattern first and foremost. Please remember that supplements are there to SUPPLEMENT your diet, not to replace it! Training hard, eating well and sleeping consistently should always come first!
