Supplements for Padel: We help you choose the Best

Supplements for Padel: We help you choose the Best

Today we’re going to look into the best supplements for padel!

Padel is a racket sport that’s risen in popularity in recent years. It can be played by people of any age, either to get fit or to compete.

When competing, the level of demand is intense, meaning athletes need a diet adapted to their energy expenditure, including a varied and balanced diet, accompanied by padel supplements.

What supplements should you take before a game of padel?

Padel players who practice to compete take part in extremely intense training programmes and need strictly planned sports nutrition with the inclusion of supplements to allow them to maintain high energy levels.

A padel match usually lasts 90 minutes, although this can be extended to as long as 4 hours.

This leads to physical wear and tear and a decrease in muscle reserves.

That’s why it’s best to have a meal with carbohydrates two hours before starting the match, usually together with the padel supplement we recommend below:

The following products are stimulant free – meaning they do not contain caffeine – and can be taken at any time of the day (such as in the evening) without the impacting sleep of those more sensitive to caffeine.

They are precursor supplements of nitric oxide (citrulline malate, nitrates) together with bicarbonate. With them, the aim is to increase sports performance by promoting the release of NO and thereby enhancing the ability to transport nutrients to the muscle fibre and, above all, improving oxygenation.

  • Evostamina. A powdered supplement based on CreapureCreatine, herbal extracts, sodium and potassium bicarbonate.
  • Evopump. A capsuled supplement based on herbal extracts of Amaranth, Beetroot, Vitis vinifera, Cayenne and Green tea.

If you want to add caffeine, you can always use capsules or tablets:

  • Natural Caffeine 200mg. A supplement in vegetable capsules that provides 200mg of anhydrous caffeine extracted from green coffee beans.
  • Caffeine Tabs 200mg. A supplement in tablets that provides 200mg of anhydrous caffeine per dose.

As you’ll likely already know, the following ergogenic effects are attributed to caffeine, amongst others:

  • A stimulating effect on the Central Nervous System.
  • Enhancement of synaptic transmission and neurotransmitter release.
  • Reduced perception of fatigue.
  • Greater mental clarity and concentration.

These effects will be of great interest to padel players in the way that they’re able to maintain their reflexes and response capacity and mean less fatigue for a longer time.

But if we’re looking for products that contain caffeine in addition to ingredients to improve athletic performance, our recommendation, without a doubt, is pre-workout supplements.

Within the SportSeries range, there’s Evordx 2.0, a great product to take about 30-40 minutes before the start of the padel game and which will “give us a jolt”.

Evordx 2.0

Another supplement that improves athletic performance and muscle recovery is Evordx 2.0 Powerful Pre-Workout.

Evordx 2.0 is made from a combination of bioactive ingredients – with 300mg of Caffeine, Creapure Creatine, BCAAs, Beta-Alanine, Arginine, Citrulline Malate – that generate a synergistic effect to increase concentration, improve strength and increase muscular endurance.

How do you hydrate when playing padel?

You need to hydrate before, during and after a game of padel.

Because when sweating we not only lose water, but electrolytes too. It’s important to reinforce water consumption with the intake of isotonic drinks to cover the loss of sodium and electrolytes, which leads to fatigue and decreased performance.

Here are some supplements, all vegan-friendly, intended for adequate hydration of athletes.

  • Evocarbs 2.0. This is a powdered preparation that contains a mixture of carbohydrates (maltodextrin + dextrose + fructose) and electrolytes.
  • Cocolytes. This consists of a preparation based on coconut water powder, dextrose and mineral salts.
  • Evolytes (Electrolyte salts). This is a multi-mineral complex in capsules based on calcium, potassium, magnesium, chloride and sodium.

Cocolytes with cold water can become your best intra-workout option!

You can have your water bottle ready with one of these products and drink it in small sips during the game.

Protect your joints

Padel has a very high risk of injury, as it affects tendons and joints at all ages.

To prevent injuries like tendonitis or epicondylitis, here are some of the supplements that will help you optimise performance and speed up recovery after training and/or competition.

  • Evoflex (Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM). This is a supplement in tablets that combines D-Glucosamine sulphate, Chondroitin sulphate and Methylsulfonylmethane, with minerals and vitamin C.
  • Joint Juice 1000ml. This is a liquid supplement based on D-Glucosamine Sulphate, chondroitin sulphate, collagen, sodium hyaluronate, MSM, silicic acid and vitamin B12. It combines concentrated fruit juices.
  • Collagen Joint Health powder. This is a flavoured supplement, prepared with a combination of Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate, MSM, Turmeric Extract and Boswellia serrata.

What supplements will improve your recovery in padel?

To improve your recovery after padel, we recommend Evorecovery, which consists of a protein-based food preparation (Lacprodan® Hydro.90 INS) and Carbohydrates (with Cluster Dextrin® and Palatinose™) and Mineral salts (Calcium, Sodium, Magnesium, Potassium and Chlorine).

It’s recommended as a key supplement to kickstart the recovery phase, once intense sports activity is over.

Evorecovery has been developed to provide the nutrients lost during physical exercise, as well as electrolytes, carbohydrates, and proteins.

Other supplements for complete nutrition

Finally, it’s very important to include other supplements for a complete sports nutrition, such as antioxidants and multivitamins.

It’s hugely important to take care of an athlete’s complete diet. However, sometimes it isn’t possible to obtain all the nutrients (micronutrients) that we need, and this nutritional deficiency compromises our health.

That’s why the proper use of supplements can provide us with vitamins and minerals to top up the diet.

Do you know about the importance of antioxidants for athletes? We tell you everything in our post.

Food supplements classified as “adaptogens” (such as Ashwagandha) are also quite important. Its function is to cope with stress, i.e. to modulate our ability to combat daily physical and mental stress and, as a result, to achieve a much more restful sleep.

Here are some of them, which, like all the products reviewed in this article, are part of the HSN series:

If you’re unfamiliar with these supplements, don’t hesitate to get in touch and we can advise you on which one might be best for your situation. Don’t miss the opportunity to get the most out of your training effort.
