Enzymes and Supplements for Athlets to Help with the Demands of Training & Exercise.
Sports performance demands a lot from you so you try to give your body what it needs to perform optimally.* Athletes take sports supplements to help achieve their goals, but if you don’t have enough enzymes to metabolize the food and athlete supplements you take then you may be wasting much of your efforts. You need enzymes to break down what you eat into nutrients your body needs to perform at its best.
Digestive Enzymes For Athletes
Most athletes can benefit by taking high potency digestive enzymes with every meal. Our favorite is Enzymedica Digest Gold + Probiotics but we've also had great results with Doctors Best Digestive Enzymes. If you already take a probiotic, and don't want another, then best selling Enzymedica Digest Gold should work well for you.
These 3 products come in various quantities.

We also offer plenty of other great digestive enzyme choices on our Digestion page. The important thing is to take the digestive enzyme of your choice at the beginning of every meal.
Nutrition For Athletes
Athletes demand more from their body and that requires extra support. If you’re an athlete trying to pack on muscle, you likely eat a lot of protein and it can be hard to digest. Enzymedica Protein Optimize can help you use the extra protein you consume in shakes, bars and meals.
Enzymedica Free Radical Defenze benefits athletes too as this high potency antioxidant enzyme formula can help you cope with training stress.
Food Cravings? Energy Crashes?
Ever feel like your energy comes in spurts followed by crashes? Either Natural Factors PGX Daily or Natural Factors SlimStyles PGX Ultra can help. They are not enzymes, but these PGX products help even out your blood sugar to reduce food cravings. This helps you avoid that energy rollercoaster, and it gives you the extra fiber often lacking in a competitive athlete’s diet.
Natural Factors PGX Daily has more PGX fiber than Natural Factors SlimStyles PGX Ultra, but if you frequently have stomach upset, choose Natural Factors SlimStyles PGX Ultra as it has an herbal blend to enhance digestion. If you drink a lot of protein shakes or smoothies, then PGX granules may be even more convenient for you. Just mix them in your shake or yogurt, or sprinkle them directly on your food. No worries, they won’t change the taste!
Natural Factors PGX Singles are packaged in convenient, pre-measured sticks that can be stored in your gym bag for easy access whenever you eat. You can also get the same PGX granules in a cost-saving bulk package. SlimStyles PGX Granules is great for use at home, and is packaged in a jar with a measuring scoop.
Need More Help to Lose Weight?
Sometimes life just gets in the way of our weight loss goals. We find that Enzymedica Slender GR makes it easier to stick with a new diet. It provides natural, stimulant-free, healthy metabolic and digestive support for weight loss management. We like to combine Slender GR with Natural Factors PGX for optimum support.
Enzymedica Slender GR optimizes sugar and fat metabolism while encouraging a lower glycemic index, and supporting healthy detoxification. We think it’s a great addition to any healthy weight loss program, especially if obstacles keep getting in the way of the healthy lifestyle changes you are trying to make.
No Pain, No Gain?
If body aches and training strains occasionally keeps you awake at night, try sleeping your pain away with EuroPharma Curamin PM. It's not a sedative so it won't leave you groggy in the morning. Curamin PM isn't habit forming either, but it may just give you the nighttime pain relief you need to get the natural restorative sleep your body needs to repair itself.
Catching a Bug?
Nothing wrecks your training program faster than getting a cold or flu. Prevention works best. Immune Health Basics has undergone extensive clinical research and was shown to dramatically reduce the incidence of colds in endurance athletes, including those in marathon competition.
For extra protection we take it with Enzymedica ViraStop 2X to assist in removing viruses, fungus, bacteria, heavy metals, and toxins. Doctors Best Proteolytic Enzymes and Natural Factors Zymactive Double Strength are also high potency proteolytic enzymes that are very effective anti-inflammatory supplements for athletes.
We find that proteolytic enzymes also speed injury recovery, repair and discomfort. You will get the most benefit from proteolytic enzymes if you take these sports supplements on an empty stomach.
Inflammation or Injury?
Swelling, inflammation and injury are common in athletes and they compromise sports performance. We find that Enzymedica Repair helps reduce inflammation and speeds recovery and we use it after every workout, even if we aren’t injured.
If you have chronic inflammation, or are healing injuries, you may get better results with Enzymedica Repair Gold. Just remember to take any of these enzymes on an empty stomach to get the most benefit.
Inflammation & Injury Recovery
Athletes have been using omega-3 fatty acids for years to improve their sports performance and reduce injuries. Omega-3s have been shown effective in supporting the brain, heart, skin, immune system, nervous system and seem to have anti-inflammatory activity that helps relieve pain and enhance injury recovery.
EuroPharma Vectomega is highly absorbable. It’s up to 50 times more absorbable than fish oils so you only need one or two tablets per day. It’s pure, stable, is sustainably sourced, and won’t leave you with a fishy aftertaste or “fish burps”.
Other Concerns for Athletes
Your athletic performance falls off quickly if you can’t breathe properly. For seasonal allergy relief, check out our Allergy Relief page, but you don’t need to have allergies to have a problem with stuffiness caused by excess mucus.
If you find yourself exposed to pollution, or stress, enteric coated Enzymedica pH Basic can reduce the acidity in your body, returning you to a naturally alkaline state where you function at your best.
Enzymedica pH Basic comes in various quantities.
