Supplements guide for FOOTBALLERS

What you can and can't take!


Here's the score!

There is no doubt that supplementation is now a big part of any top footballer's diet. The more cautious (and perhaps uninformed) ones will opt for the general multi-vits. The more serious footballers want to be the best and often look for what can help them recover quicker, be stronger, fitter and faster.

This article tells you what the best supplements are for football players. All the supplements mentioned here are 100% IOC legal, so you can take them with confidence.


If you have not recovered from your previous training session/game, then you will not be functioning at 100%. There is absolutely no question that certain supplements can greatly enhance your recovery and get you up and running quicker. Let's look at them individually:

Your muscles are made up of protein and water. As well as making sure you are properly hydrated with at least 2 litres of pure water a day, you must make sure your protein intake is high.
Make sure you have lots of meat, tuna and eggs. As well as these natural sources of protein you must supplement with a good high quality protein powder such as LA Whey. This is even more important if you are a vegetarian.
LA Whey is the best protein source you can get with 18 amino acids.

Never underestimate the importance of glutamate. Glutamate is the most abundant amino acid in your muscles. Glutamate levels need to be replaced after training - not a day or 2 days later; they need to be replaced immediately.
So you can take LA Whey and Glutamate immediately after training. You will really notice a difference from day one, guaranteed. Some of the top footballers in the UK take this product every day.

Glutamate and whey protein are also very important in maintaining and building muscle tissue and keeping bodyfat levels down.

As someone who trains harder than the average person and uses more energy, you must make sure all your bodily functions are properly regulated and that your immune system is functioning well.
As a safeguard and a strong boost to all your bodily systems, try Multi_Protector. This product is not a token vitamin pill from your local pharmacy. Multi_Protector contains the right balance of essential multi-vitamins, minerals, antioxidant and immune boosters you will not find in other formulas. As well as the essentials in the right balance, you also get Molybdenum, Coenzyme Q10, Citrus Bioflavonoids and Selenium.

As a footballer, you are prone to all sorts of injuries, ranging from skeletal, muscular to tendons and ligaments. If you have an injury and you want to help it go away or you just want to make sure you don't get injured then you must try IP4. This product is used religiously by many of the top coaches in the UK. Nothing is as strong as IP4. Do yourself a favour and try it, you will not regret it.

The above products are considered "essential" to any football-player's regime and can be taken pretty much all year round. They are ideal for recovery and making sure you are at least 100%. Now let's look at how you can be above 100%!

Alex del Piero, Ian Wright and Vialli were perhaps some of the first well-known football players that started using this wonder supplement. These days, any footballer that hasn't been living in a cave for the last 8 years will be using some form of Creatine. Creatine is by far the quickest way of regenerating energy levels and boosting performance; far more superior to food or any other product.

As a very popular supplement, every company (even pet food manufacturers!) are now giving you their "superior" Creatine. LA Muscle's Explosive Creatine has been one of Europe's top-selling Creatine formulas since 1998.

Whichever LA Muscle Creatine you go for, you are guaranteed results. All LA Muscle Creatine formulas are guaranteed to be 100% pure with no impurities. They are also manufactured to Pharmaceutical Quality (not food quality) in LA Muscle's FDA-Approved & Inspected laboratories. You cannot get higher quality.

All LA Muscle Creatine powders are also Super-Micronised, meaning even quicker dissolving and more results. If you have been buying the cheap high street brands or silly gimmicky formulas, then stop wasting your time and money. LA Muscle Creatine formulas are what professional footballers use.

LA Muscle have spent a great deal of time and money on the R&D for a product that can only be described as "the perfect training & recovery aid". Cobra is everything you want from a training and recovery product. It contains carbohydrates to give you energy before and after training. It contains the right electrolytes to rebalance your body after sweating. It contains the essential amino acids to help your muscles recover. On top of all this, it contains Creatine Instant.

Cobra is a delicious strawberry flavoured powder mix. If you want something that actually works and helps you recover & train harder then Cobra does not let you down. This product is not your sugary energy drink. Just read the ingredients list and see why it is used by so many top athletes.

As a footballer, it always helps to have more lean muscle. Apart from the hard-core range in the products section, there are some 100% IOC legal supplements you can take to help you tone up more.

Nemesis is a very strong muscle builder. It works by changing the way your body utilises protein and is a strong anti-estrogen. Nemesis can be used alongside LA Whey to give you very good muscle tone.

Nobody likes a lazy player, least of all you! So if you are lacking motivation, energy or zest for your game, then pop a couple of Speedstar tablets and you will soon forget that you ever felt tired! Speedstar is very strong so please don't over-do it!

Muscle to fat ratio is a very important aspect in football. When you see a porky footballer, you just know he "aint goin' nowhere"! If you want to build some muscle and lose fat at the same time, then use Sculpt.

If you want pure fat loss and quick, then try Fatstripper.

So there you have it. Almost every top footballer is using some form of supplementation for increases in muscle, stamina, energy, recovery times and for fat loss. Don't get left behind and remember at LA Muscle we guarantee results.
