Day after day, exercise takes a toll on the body. While most athletes and active consumers understand the need to recover from a workout or competition, many don’t realize just how long this period of restoration is and all the aspects involved in limiting damage, fostering muscle adaptation and getting the body ready for the next exercise session.

Senior editor Steve Myers talked to sports nutrition expert Susan Hewlings, Ph.D., R.D., vice president of scientific affairs at Nutrasource, about the overlooked aspects of recovery, from proper hydration and carb intake to protein timing and good sleep habits.

Hewlings is scheduled to present on this topic during the “Sports Nutrition & Active Lifestyles: Ingredients, Demographics & Market Whitespace” workshop at SupplySide East 2019, held in Secaucus, N.J., on April 10 from 9am to noon. Visit the education program page for more info and to register.
