Does anyone else remember the days of Megadrives, when to be sufficient (alright, barely passable) on any meagre level of gaming that finger mashing your controller got you to a game’s next level after one or two tries?
Of course, everyone has to start somewhere. That last question in today’s eSports world is perhaps akin to Premier League footballers recalling the days they could hardly dribble a ball, back when it was all fields around here.
Certainly, the practice can make you perfect, but gaming sessions that exceed the ten-hour mark will tax your focus and ability like a half-marathon pounds the shins.
With so many professional gamers so meticulous about the way they call shots, manage their controls and even the angle they position their thumbs over buttons, all in the name of perfection, why would you not extend this to your physical and mental wellbeing in support of your virtual reality success?
So you’re not looking to build bulk muscle, okay, but surely there are supplements available out there that can help you in your game.
Focus & Energy
Let’s face it, there’s more to challenge you mentally in gaming than fracking and farming. Many gamers lose their edge when it comes to the minefield of interacting with other players. There’s nothing worse than being stressed from the strain of a sugar crash after hours of junk food. It leaves you squishy, vulnerable, open to attacks and often lack the capacity to function at your usual level.
Here are just a few healthy and safe supplements that can help boost and maintain your focus and concentration.
Thermopure is a formula containing a host of ingredients to support a gruelling, long session that will require maximum effort. It contains vitamin B6, 21ug of vitamin B12, 120mcg of Chromium (as Chromium Picolinate), 150mg of caffeine, 375mg of Green Tea Extract, 200mg of L-Tyrosine, 125mg of L-Theanine and a touch of cayenne powder.
Thermopure is designed to not only support your metabolism and immune system but also maintains your glucose levels along with the boost of caffeine.
Part of our core range and proven to boost cognitive function, Inositol is specially designed with a combination of endurance and alertness in mind. Inositol is a comprehensive formula that combines essential ingredients which contribute to normal mental performance, and reduced tiredness and fatigue.
Energy and Grazing Solutions
In case you find yourself snacking or grazing to keep your energy levels up, the solution is simple: if you’re playing a first-person shooter, make sure you’re using the right ammo.
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it’s true. But in respects of a long, challenging gaming session, whatever time of day it is you need to have the energy stores in your system before going to battle.
An easy answer: our special oats and protein blends will ensure you have the right kind of carbs that your body needs.
Instant Oats contributes to the growth and maintenance of your muscle function.
It’s also packed with fibre, and all the carbs needed to fuel your body – for a perfect start to any challenge.
Need the same fuel on the go or when pausing to prepare something bigger isn’t a possibility? Our Protein Cookies are created with a blend of whey protein concentrate and milk protein, which contributes to the growth and maintenance of your muscles, offering a fuelling carb boost, and with less than 7g of sugar it’s a delicious snack that won’t see you pile on unwanted weight that you can’t burn off.
Taking energy stores to the next level, there will be times when your body needs a boost and lifting your glucose levels is the answer. At such times you may want to have a supply of Mypre V2.
These supplements are just the tip of the iceberg, but remember that they should be consumed alongside a balanced diet to ensure that you are getting all the nutrition that your body needs. Supplements are ideal for giving your body what it needs during gameplay, just as a bodybuilder would reach for a whey blend in the middle of a weightlifting session.
