Cyclists have it hard. From competitions to arguing with angry motorists – the problems are very real. If we ignore the safety aspects for a second, forget about the angry drivers, and talk about being out on the bike: it’s still hard! There are things you can do, though, that will boost your stamina, lend you strength, and make you better equipped to face that open road. One of those things includes all-natural supplementation.
With this in mind, we explored the best five natural cycling performance-enhancing supplements so you can make the most of your time on the bike.
What are the Best Natural Cycling Performance Enhancing Supplements?
The top supplements for cycling are as follows:
Creatine is a naturally occurring substance that our bodies produce on their own. Since it is responsible for sending bursts of energy into our muscles; cyclists often use it to increase stamina, grow muscle mass, and ride farther.
2. Whey Protein
Whey Protein is full of measurable protein molecules that your body will quickly take up. We do use more carbohydrates while cycling than we do protein, but our bodies need that extra intake to repair muscle damage and come back stronger!
L-Arginine has a variety of health benefits; but most notably for the cycling community, it increases heart and blood functioning. L-Arginine widens the arteries, improves circulation, and is used by the body to create Nitric Oxide, a compound we will cover momentarily.
Beetroot has proven to enhance athletic performance when eaten before a workout. It is full of vitamin C, folate, iron, manganese – and others. Considered by some to be a super-food; the humble beetroot improves heart health, protects your muscles from damage, and is full of all of the right nutritional ingredients for building new red blood cells. Eat your beets for cyclist supplementation!
5. Nitric Oxide
We touched on this before without going into detail. Nitric oxide is a compound that is naturally created by the body. It has anti-inflammatory properties, lines the blood vessels to keep them relaxed, promotes oxygen and circulation of the blood, and can even be used to treat ED! Nitric Oxide can also be used to treat high blood pressure, so it is a must-have for anyone stressed about cycling!
You’re working hard to build the body you want. Don’t undo all your good work with iffy supplements produced in non-certified facilities. Stick with supplements you can trust. Not sure FDA certified facilities matter? Think again. Here’s the rundown.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is a federal agency charged with protecting consumers and promoting public health. The agency works to improve the safety of many products such as over the counter medicines, vaccines, dietary supplements, cosmetics and medical devices. In answer to that charge, the FDA requires that facilities adhere to a strict set of standards in order to earn and maintain their certification. FDA certified facilities manufacture products that are tested and can be trusted. Crazymass is an FDA certified facility.

Gary David is the founder and CEO of CrazyMass, one of the nation’s leading supplement companies. Before starting CrazyMass in 2006, Gary was a bodybuilder and personal trainer for several gyms throughout Northwest Michigan, helping clients meet their fitness goals. Gary happily worked in this profession for over 15 years. He saw that most weight gaining products to increase muscle were made with ingredients that were dangerous or of poor quality. He knew there was a safer and healthier way to do this, so he created a special blend of herbs, amino acids, and nutrients to help bodybuilders slim down and gain muscle.
Although Gary no longer participates in bodybuilding competitions, he continues to be involved in the community, helping others prep for shows and attending events where he can advertise CrazyMass products. When Gary isn’t working long hours, he likes to spend his time working out at the gym, boating on Lake Michigan, traveling the trails around Northern Michigan by four-wheeler, and spending time with his family. He also loves to take a yearly trip to Europe with his wife and children.
