A fighter must be characterized by speed, strength and endurance. In addition to heavy strength and aerobic training, he must support himself with a proper diet and supplements. There are several useful compounds and supplements that support martial arts athletes.

Adaptogens are mainly herbal substances and extracts that support our body’s resistance to stress. Long-term and chronic stress is very dangerous. Adaptogens support our immune system, give energy and help when we want to restore the proper functioning of the nervous system. Stress leads to a weakening of psycho-physical fitness and to impairment of the nervous system. This Precious natural compounds are: Ginseng, Ginkgo biloba, Mountain rose, Ashwagandha, Astragalus, Maca, Licorice root, Rhodiola and Gotu kola.

Beta alanine

Beta alanine is a non-essential amino acid. Unlike most amino acids, the body does not use it for protein synthesis. Instead, it produces carnosine along with histidine. Carnosine is then stored in skeletal muscle. It reduces the accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles during exercise, which leads to improved sports performance. This reduces overall fatigue. Beta alanine improves athletic performance, reducing fatigue and increasing endurance in high-intensity exercise.

Taurine is an excellent dietary supplement, which unfortunately is very often underestimated. It is extremely useful in the pre-workout period. If we want to use any brain stimulants, we can safely reach for taurine. It stimulates, which results in increased concentration, reduction of stress effects and improvement of mental condition. What’s more, taurine also helps to increase insulin sensitivity.

Citrulline leading to increased nitric oxide (NO) production, used before proper technical training can do more harm than help. The phenomenon of a “muscle pump” can make it difficult to keep your guard or make movements that require more agility and fitness. However, they can be successfully used after completing the exercises. The effect of their use is vasodilatation, thanks to which anabolic, regenerative and other nutritional elements reach the muscles in increased amounts (together with blood and oxygen). The possibilities of energy storage as well as for the reconstruction of contractile proteins are also increasing.

Magnesium is an element used by athletes primarily in the regenerative formula ZMA (zinc, magnesium, vitamin B6). In this combination it will work as a supplement conducive to psycho-physical regeneration at night. Magnesium supports the functioning of mitochondria, which translates into better energy of the body. Its deficiency causes cramps and neuromuscular excitability.

CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) does not have to be used only during the reduction period, where we want to lose weight. It is mainly about the fact that CLA supplementation helps maintain a sufficiently high testosterone level, and additionally improves fatty acid transport and insulin sensitivity. Which will allow you to get better conditions when building muscle mass and working on a strength base (of course this is also a positive phenomenon when reducing the level of accumulated fat).
