Sports Nutrition

Having vibrant energy and recovering quickly are key to anyone that exercises for fun, their health or competitively.

Energy production is influenced by our digestion, detoxifcation, immune system, our hormones and nerves as well as the active tissues themselves. Genetics also play a massive role in all things physical.

 

Only focusing on our fuel needs (e.g carbohydrates) is akin to simply putting petrol in your car. In order for it to run fluidly and efficiently, you need to check that it has enough fresh oil, that the gaskets are sealing properly and that your spark plugs are sparky! These maintenance steps are done based on the make and model (our genes) of the car. That makes your dietary needs a bit more complex that just ensuring adequate fuel but the effort will be worthwhile!
