Supplements for Athletes: What to Take & When

60 minutes before exercise → take (2) O2Golds

  • O2Gold contains a unique blend of proteins and adaptogens that enhances the body’s use of oxygen to help your systems adapt to stress and prolong aerobic exercise.
  • Optimizes body’s use of oxygen
  • Supports muscle building and recovery
  • Antioxidant activity helps the body destroy free radicals in the cells
  • More strength, endurance and energy

I have exercise induced asthma and since I started taking O2Gold I no longer need an inhaler during my runs. I still use my inhaler before I run (1 puff instead of 2 now) as a precaution but I don’t have attacks during my runs anymore. I used to always get wheezy at the half way point.

15 minutes before exercise → take (3) Catalysts

  • Catalyst amino acid supplement is a blend of essential branched chain amino acids and L-glutamin that support the building and sustainment of muscles during excercise.
  • For endurance athletes it is critical to maintain lean body mass. The body often wants to attack the muscles and preserve body fat which is problematic for anyone tryingincrease endurance or strength.
  • Catalyst helps your body to retain muscles and reduce fat to increase tone and definition, achieving a more chiseled look.

My body fat percentage dropped by 5 percentage points taking Catalyst.

  • Contains antioxidants to neutralize free radicals.



Daily → Joint ProMotion

Joint ProMotion™

  • Contains glucosamine – an amino sugar important in the formation and repair of cartilage. As we age, the amount our bodies produce slows and since there are no other sources that contain glucosamine, there is no way to replenish glucosamine through our diet.
  • Helps lubricate and protect joints
  • Contributes to mobility and flexibility
  • Aids in relieving occasional pain after exercise.

I take this before all my runs and after 3 years of heavy training and 6 full marathons my joints are in great shape.

During my marathons I drink a mixture of Rehydrate, Spark, Arginine Extreme and Muscle Fuel – 30 minutes before and then every 6 miles throughout. The

second half of the marathon is soo much more enjoyable when you are properly fueled.
