My Nutritional Supplements

As an athlete and human that values health, I find that supplementing my daily food with nutritional supplements is something I need to do if I want to be at the top of my game.Along with a proper night of sleep, these two elements combine to create my force against the common cold and other pesky ailments.

I won't spend anytime debating the merits of nutritional supplements for athletes in this post, there is plenty of literature you can find online. I believe they are beneficial, and whether or not it is merely placebo effect, their benefits are real to me.  Here my list of daily supplements I take:

  • Vitamin D: 4000IU
  • Echinacea: 2400mg see note 1
  • Glucosamine & Chondroitin: 1000mg & 800mg
  • Omega 3-6-9 Oils: 800/800/800mg
  • One-A-Day Multivitamin For Men
This combination of oils improves my joint health, tissue rebuilding, immune system and overall health. I've had great success staying healthy with this combination.

DISCLAIMER: Feel free to use any of my advice above, but be warned, I am not a trained medical practitioner. I take no responsibility for any issues our bouts of awesomeness brought on by your use of supplements.

note 1: I've decided to scrap using echinacea daily as they do not recommend doing so.
