Supplements are very popular among peak performance athletes. There are many available supplements to help in your bodybuilding efforts – they span the gamut from performance enhancers, protein supplements and other newfangled ways to improve muscle development and definition.

But first of all, before delving into supplements, you must be fully aware of the importance of maintaining a healthy diet and getting adequate rest. Remember, these are supplements, which mean they add to the value of what is already there, your existing diet and routine.

The biggest question most budding enthusiasts ask is that if one should take such supplements even if they are not bent on joining any competitions. The answer to this is yes. While a good diet – one that is typically composed of fruit juices and other healthy foods – will do much to help build a better body.

This is because even with all the healthy foods available, a perfect diet that gives you all the nutrients you need is not realistically possible. You will always miss out on vital nutrients to grow muscle and supply your energy needs. Therefore, meal replacement powders have become a great alternative to full meals that are inconvenient and messy to prepare.

This is further emphasized by the fact that today’s environment has become pretty hazardous to anyone’s health. Pollution to the air and water has increased up to twenty times. This has made oxidization – the harmful process that speeds aging – a more prevalent threat than ever before. You will need more anti-oxidant supplements to help combat this peril. Therefore the need of nutritional supplements is warranted.

Nutrition Requirements for Athletes

Coaches and sports people must take into consideration the proper diet for athletes. For a workout to lead to better results, it must be accompanied with the proper nutritional requirements. A heavy workout for one would be requiring large amounts of protein for the muscles.

In fact, studies show that those engaged in intense training or activities are required to take in more protein than the recommended daily amount in order to maintain protein balance. Insufficient amount of protein could lead to a negative nitrogen balance. This in turn can increase the protein metabolism and promote slow recovery.

In the long run, insufficient protein in the body could lead to training intolerance and lean muscle wasting. Aside from increasing the servings of protein-rich food, one can also drink protein shakes, bars and other protein-concentrated food.

Another important nutritional requirement would be carbohydrates. Just like that of protein, the amount of carbohydrates required would depend on the intensity of training. Carbohydrates are important in maintaining liver and muscle glycogen stores.

For figure-conscious people, “fat” is the devil. But contrary to popular belief, not all kinds of fats are bad for the health. In fact, some types of fatty acids are even essential for the body’s proper functions. Vitamins and minerals are important for improved performance and to prevent oxidation damages

Vitamin & nutritional supplements are being taken by peak performance athletes who are aware of the needs of the body in today’s competitive world. And as you can see in the video below here, our products are taken by some of the world’s top athletes.


"David Beckham Is Here!" Herbalife, the Official Nutrition Company of the LA Galaxy, welcomes the world's most famous soccer sensation to Los Angeles. It's a magical moment in history that fans and media across the globe can't stop talking about.

''Having been personally involved in every facet of professional soccer, as a player, coach, and now general manager, I can speak to how important nutrition is to protecting any sports organization’s most valuable assets – the guys who actually have to go out there on the field and get it done. And when it comes to making sure they have great nutrition products for overall health and fitness, as well as game-day performance, we couldn’t be happier about our association with Herbalife.''
Alexi Lalas
General Manager
LA Galaxy

"Running up to 6 miles every game against some of the greatest athletes in the world is a demanding challenge. But since I started using Herbalife, my mental clarity and energy have really improved, and that allowed me to have one of my best season's ever as a pro in 2006. Thanks, Herbalife, for offering a simple effective nutrition routine that I enjoy following each day."
Chris Albright
2006 Defender of the Year
LA Galaxy

"Every time I take the field, my single goal is to stop others from scoring. When you have a ball traveling towards you at up to 85 miles-per-hour, that means you need incredible mind-body reaction time. My solution? Simple... I use Herbalife products during every practice and every game. Nothing I've tried before or since has given me a more competitive edge."
Joe Cannon
Two-time MLS Goalkeeper of the Year
LA Galaxy

In certain sports however, a thin athlete is preferred and unfortunately this is one reason for the higher rates of eating disorders in sports like gymnastics, distance running, distance skiing, swimming, figure skating, dancing, horse racing, rowing, wrestling and cheerleading. These sectors of the sports industry have staggeringly high rates of eating disorders. Male sports that ranked the highest at risk for eating disorders are wrestling and cross-country running, so, as with all eating disorders, males are not immune.

Obviously, it is essential for the wellbeing of the athlete and their long-term career as professional sportspeople, that they are assisted to develop healthy eating and nutrition plans, and taking natural herbal based vitamin nutritional supplements are an excellent method to achieve this.
