I’ve been looking at supplements and their effects on muay thai training and performance recently. Protein powders are a staple for almost every athlete, whether whey, casein, beef, egg, hemp, or rice be your taste. Creatine is one of the most well researched sports supplements of all time. Fish oil, multi vitamins are widely basic nutritional supplements. But what about less common supplemental tools?
I knew of the cognitive enhancer, or nootropic, Alpha Brain, from the Joe Rogan podcast. Onnit are a functional training equipment and supplement company. Their sponsored athletes include several top MMA fighters, including UFC Bantamweight World Champion, TJ Dillashaw.
TJ praises their supplements saying, “I HAVE LIKED ALL THE SUPPLEMENTS THAT I’VE TRIED FROM ONNIT, BUT SOME OF MY FAVORITES ARE ALPHA BRAIN, T+, HEMP FORCE AND NEW MOOD”.
He continues, “Alpha BRAIN has done wonders for me. It helps with my concentration and memory while learning new technique and remembering old technique”.
TJ praises Onnit’s New MOOD also, “The closer I get to a fight the better New MOOD works. Fighting is a very stressful profession and New MOOD does a good job helping with it. When my mind is racing and I can’t sleep, New MOOD relaxes my brain and helps me get the sleep my body needs to stay strong.”
I’ve tried Alpha Brain with mild, but good results. I’m going to try New MOOD next to see what effect it has on me.
