Randy Couture’s supplements for UFC 109
I have gotten a few emails asking how we change Randy’s supplement schedule.
Randy takes quite a bit of supplements to keep him in top form.
For the last 2 training camps we have modified a few things based off what was needed from micronutrient testing.
(Randy has been in 3 back to back to back training camps at age 46. Most fighters half his age are burned out after 1 training camp, let alone 3 in a row. This is what we do to keep him going)
Remember, this is extensive because it is an example of what an elite athlete needs to do to keep his body functioning at a top level and slow the over oxidation (aging) that occurs when one is doing an extreme amount of exercise. I am talking about intense workouts, twice a day for months on end.
He is taking the following things daily from XCAP:
(These are the things he takes regularly)
Vita D – 3 drops
Max EFA’s – 6
B12 Nitro – 3
Joint Flex – 3
Optimum T – 6
Adrenal Glandular – 6 to 9 depending on how he feels
IGF Blast – 6
Natural Mins – 4
O2 Plus + – 6 to 8
Xtra Enzymes – 16
4 Ever Greens – 2 scoops
Whey Isolate – 4 scoops
AA Resveratrol – 6
Below are things that he has added because of the constant training camps. These were only added after extensive testing. You don’t need to add these things just because Randy is taking them right now. The basis of his program is the supplements listed above from XCAP.
We added the following things based on lymphocyte micronutrient, spectox and telomere testing:
(These will be taken up to UFC 109 then stopped. Randy will be retested before his next training camp and we will decide what to from there.)
Phosphatidylserine – 3 (helps lower cortisol and boost testosterone)
Lipid Sirt – 4 (helps stop cholesterol oxidation)
Super Phosphozyme – 2 (balances calcium ratio)
Alpha Lipoic Acid – 3 (reduces oxidation)
CoQ Zyme – 3 (reduces oxidation in mitochondria)
Selenium -1 (anti-oxidant mineral)
Bio B with C – 1 (specific ratio of B vitamins to bring up a low level)
Iodizyme-HP – 1 (iodine for thyroid support)
Chlorocaps – 2 (chlorophyll to support hormones)
Cytozyme PT/HPT – 6 (Pituitary gland support)
Cytozyme orchic – 3 (testicular gland support)
L-Glutamine powder – ½ scoop (amino acid replacement)
NAC – 3 (production of glutathione)
