My Top Supplements By Nathan Cruz

Supplementation is such a useful tool in helping create your desired physique. For me and my schedule they are essential for keeping on the right track too!

Although I vary in some supplements, others that I can live without; there are a select few that I always make sure that I have...

  1. BCAAs

A good quality BCAA product is basically an IV drip to your body that fuels it with the right things it needs to help promote muscle repair and growth. It's something that has only really caught on in the last decade, but the results are indisputable. I notice myself the difference when I'm using and not using a BCAA supplement - especially in relation to my recovery time.

The brands which I recommend are: Rich Piana's 5% All Day You May, Mutant BCAA & USN BCAA.


  1. Casein Protein

Many people may be surprised that I didn't say Whey Protein (which is a protein that is a great post workout). Whey Protein is an easily & quickly digested protein, derived from milk (similar to Casein). But Casein digests slowly, which for me is great when on the road. When time is pushed to get to a venue and I need to fill a void between meals, Casein saves the day!

It fills in a gap for my body and allows it to keep working and fuels my muscles with the amino acids they crave - perfect for anyone doing graveyard shifts too. For this product I trust Optimum Nutrition Casein above all else.

  1. Protein Bars

These have made my list purely out of practicality. They’re perfect snacks between meals or they can be used as a desert with a meal. Similar to casein protein shakes, they're very good at filling in that gap between meals if my time is pressed on the road, when I need to space meals to once every 3 hours. My car always has a couple in the glove box for long journeys just incase I need them. They're also very helpful at putting an end to that sweet tooth craving - which helps to avoid eating a load of junk!

There's so many favourites that I have, it's hard to pick...

Carb Killa are usually my favourite, then there’s the Syntha 6 bars, oh and the new PhD Smart Bars, honestly I could gorge on them all day!
