If you’re into working out, consider taking these.
1. Protein and combination powders
Most guys guzzle big tubs of whey protein, but plant-based alternatives like pea protein and rice protein have been shown to support muscle strength just as effectively.
You can also find combination powders that include other powerful nutrients. Think protein powder blended with greens or probiotics—or even vitamins and minerals that address specific concerns, like bone health.
2. Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs)
BCAA supplements are often used by athletes after workouts to provide energy for muscles and assist with protein metabolism.
More and more athletes are turning to cannabidiol
(CBD) to help with recovery—no surprise given the promise CBD has shown in early research for reducing both pain and inflammation.
These healthy fats have numerous benefits, including assisting in post-workout recovery. Instead of fish oil pills, you can try alternatives like flax oil or algae extracts.
Creatine is one of the world’s most popular and well-researched strength- and power-boosting supplements. Food-wise, it’s only found in animal tissue, but vegans can opt for a supplement.
