Maximize Performance Through Sports Nutrition

​​Sports nutrition is the study and practice of nutrition and diet with regards to improving one's athletic performance. Nutrition is an important part of many sports training regimens, being popular in strength sports, such as weightlifting and bodybuilding, and endurance sports (e.g. cycling, running, swimming, rowing).

Whether you are a bodybuilder, a professional athlete or simply exercising to improve your health, sports nutrition plays a key role in optimising the beneficial effects of physical activity. Making better decisions with your nutrition and hydration can result in improved performance, recovery and injury prevention. Consuming the right balance of food and drink is important for everyone. Yet those actively participating in sport on a regular basis need to be aware that it can also affect their performance. Athletes, for example, may need more calories than the average person. So, if you’re an athlete, or simply someone who’s made the decision to start exercising on a regular basis, you shouldn’t let a good nutrition plan fall down on your list of priorities.

There is possibly no other nutrient that gets as much attention in the field of sports nutrition as protein. Protein's role in the body is mainly for muscle growth and repair. But what you may not know is that...

 The most popular protein powders are loaded with artificial sweeteners, genetically modified organisms (GMO), corn starch, and toxic dyes.

Here are a couple of links to articles about how toxic ingredients in certain protein powders and pre/post workout supplements can ruin your health:

Next time, you are searching for a sports nutrition product, look for a brand that does not contain harmful toxic ingredients and has only healthful ingredients that are nutrition dense and bioavailable.
