The Six BJJ Supplements that Really Work

Stephan Kesting of Grapplearts asked my opinion on what sports supplements are helpful for grapplers. Here’s my response. I also loved his caveats: in large part, supplements will not boost your athletic game. If you want to get better at grappling — or any sport — practice. Nothing replaces hard work and smart training. Yep, it’s a boring reality, but it’s true.

By the way, in case you’re concerned about vitamin D toxicity, in adults, toxicity results from supplementing something like 50,000 IU/day for several months. Possible in theory, but takes effort. 🙂

Also, to get doses of fish oil (not fish LIVER oil) that high, take liquid. No, it doesn’t taste that bad. Stop being a baby! We’ve given that dose to literally thousands of clients at PN, completely safely and with lots of positive effects. Butch up and get out that spoon.
