Daily optimal nutrition plans must provide athletes with the energy load and essential nutrients for peak performance, in order to enhance their bodies’ adaptation during training, as well as to facilitate 100% of their recovery after physical and mental effort. We believe that both aspects go together, and that a proper diet with optimal products and nutrients can enhance mental wellbeing, allowing us to face training in a more optimistic way.
Nutritional requirements for athletes vary according to the sports they practice, the intensity of the practice, as well as the time they spend and the level of competition. Vitamins, minerals and trace elements play an important role as cofactors in important reactions of the energetic metabolism, as well as in the synthesis of tissues. An insufficient intake of micronutrients can considerably reduce sports performance and adaptation, and at the same time increase the sensation of fatigue and impede recovery between series of competition or training sessions.
