The 6 sport supplements I consume daily as a non-pro athlete


The world of sport supplements can be intimidating and confusing for those who aren’t pro athletes. With all the products out there, it can be hard to know which ones are worth your money and which ones are just a waste. I have experience with this dilemma as an amateur athlete, so let me share with you my top 6 sport professional athlete supplements that I think everyone should try if they’re interested in health and longevity!


Protein is an essential part of a balanced diet. In fact, protein has been shown to boost muscle growth and repair. Protein shakes are convenient and easy to consume, which is why they’re one of my favorite sources of protein in my diet.


Make it easy on yourself! It’s hard enough being an athlete without having to worry about preparing your own meals every day. I recommend keeping a stock of your favorite protein powders on hand so that you can mix up your shake whenever you want it.
Don’t get bored! There are hundreds of different flavors available—you should never run out of options! And if you do find yourself bored by the same old chocolate or vanilla, try mixing things up with some wild flavors like “mocha madness” or “coconut creme.”

But don’t take my word for it. There are plenty of other athletes who use protein shakes to fuel their workouts and recover from long days of training. It might seem intimidating at first, but once you get used to making your own shakes, you’ll wonder why you ever bothered with those expensive pre-mixed packages.

And if that isn’t enough, think about how much money will be saved! If you’re going to buy a quality protein powder in bulk!

Amino acids

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. They are essential for muscle growth and recovery, and we can find them in meat, eggs, dairy products and other protein-rich foods.

Amino acids

An amino acid is a molecule that contains an amine group (NH2) bonded to a carboxylic acid group (COOH). There are 20 amino acids that occur naturally in the human body; they can be further broken down into three types: essential (the body cannot produce them on its own so they must be obtained through diet), nonessential (the body can produce these on its own) or conditional (the body produces these under special circumstances).

When taken together as part of a complete protein source such as meat or eggs, the nine essential amino acids have been shown to increase athletic performance by improving recovery time between workouts.


L-Carnitine is an amino acid that transports fatty acids into the mitochondria where they are burned as fuel. The body produces it naturally, but studies show that supplementation can increase its production and absorption by up to 60%. L-carnitine has been shown to improve endurance and recovery time after exercise, so it’s especially beneficial for athletes who need to train hard but also want to recover quickly.


While some people may be familiar with l-carnitine because of its role in protein metabolism, most don’t realize that it can also help you lose weight. By aiding in fat oxidation and increasing energy expenditure (EE), l-carnitine helps burn extra calories throughout the day—whether you’re working out or not!


Creatine is a naturally occurring substance in the body, and it’s also found in red meat, fish and poultry. Creatine is used by athletes to increase muscle mass and improve performance. The body produces creatine to supply energy to muscles during high intensity exercise. It also helps with muscle recovery after heavy training.


The creatine supplement I take daily contains 1000mg of creatine monohydrate per serving (5g).


Artroguard is a joint health supplement that I use daily. Artroguard has been proven to be effective in the treatment of many different kinds of joint issues, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and fibromyalgia.


Artroguard is made up of three natural ingredients: glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate and methylsulfonylmethane (MSM). These ingredients all work together to reduce inflammation in your joints, improve lubrication of your joints and even increase the flexibility of your ligaments (which can help prevent injury).

In addition to its anti-inflammatory properties, artroguard also functions as an antioxidant—which helps keep those nasty free radicals at bay!

Omega 3

Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid and it’s good for the heart, brain, joints, immune system and eyes. Omega 3 can be found in oily fish like salmon and mackerel and in some foods like eggs or flaxseed oil.

Omega 3

If you don’t eat enough oily fish then I recommend taking a fish oil supplement with at least 200 mg of EPA + DHA daily.

Extra virgin olive oil contains a little bit of omega 3 as well so if you eat plenty of olives then that could be enough to keep your levels topped up.


Because I’m not a professional athlete, my sport supplements are different from those of my friends or other athletes. However, these are the ones that work best for me and have helped me improve my performance over time. Let me know what works for you.
