Supplements to Boost Performance in the Noosa Triathlon

Posted on October 30, 2018

The Noosa Triathlon is a huge event, not just because of the thousands of spectators and participants but for the powerful performance it demands from your body. Running, cycling and swimming in Australia’s highest profile triathlon event on 4 November takes strength, endurance and giving it your all. Quality supplements from Noosa Village’s LiveLife Pharmacy can help triathletes ensure their bodies have the best to give.

A Solid Multivitamin

Multivitamins provide essential nutrients, and are typically suggested to fill the gaps your diet may not provide. If your diet is already rich with nutrients, you can avoid vitamin “megadosing” by choosing your multivitamin carefully.

Opt for a multivitamin that contains no more than 200 percent of the RDA for any one nutrient. You can also select one that extracts many essential nutrients from vegetables and fruits, such as Vital All-in-One (formerly known as Vital Greens).

Probiotics

Known for promoting healthy bacteria in the gut, probiotics provide support for your immune system. Probiotics are naturally found in the body, but they can decrease over time, or get knocked out altogether by antibiotics. GO Healthy probiotics can help, with a few different options from which to choose.

Fish Oil

Omega-3 fatty acids are the key ingredient in fish oil you want for your triathlon support, as they can do amazing things for your body. In addition to reducing inflammation, they’re tops for support heart and brain health.

Ethical Nutrients has an impressive collection of high-strength omega-3 supplements that can ensure your body gets the omega-3 it deserves.

Other Supplements to Consider

While your body will be off to an excellent start with the three supplements listed above, LiveLife Pharmacy carries others from Vital, GO Healthy and Ethical Nutrients that can provide an additional boost for your performance.

Creatine Monohydrate: for a burst of increased power and strength, to speed up muscle recovery. 

Sodium Phosphate: for maximum oxygen uptake when taken daily during race week.

Vitamin D: for offsetting widespread deficiency which can result in reduced athletic performance.
