That's OK, for now. You must start somewhere, and I don't think there's any sense in forcing it when you feel bad. All that will happen is that you'll eventually give up because you hate it so much. So my advice for the cardio is that you rather don't even try to force the 5 minutes. Why not go 2 minutes, and then rest 1 minute. then another 2 minutes, rest 1 minute, and repeat this 3 or 4 times? That would give you about 15 minutes in total, but the rest should allow you to complete it.
Supplements are not the answer here - it's a simple case of stepping back and finding a level that allows your body to adapt. Also, lower the workload. You don't have to jog, for example, rather just walk slowly. And on the bike, you don't have to go at level 5 (for example), rather go at level 3. There's no doubt that you can do cardio, you just have to step down, be patient and give your body the chance to build up. Then it will be fine.
