Nutrition to power sports performance

Nutrition to power sports performance
The sports performance category encompasses many ingredients that directly or indirectly impact performance. Formulation focuses on key areas such as muscle function, energy production and delayed fatigue. From a research perspective, performance is defined by strength, power, endurance and speed, although increasing emphasis is focusing on cognitive metrics such as focus, concentration, processing and reaction time. Ingredients range from options such as protein (which contains amino acids), electrolytes, minerals and antioxidants, to nitrates and various botanicals.

Takeaways for Your Business

• Increasing muscle protein synthesis (MPS) creates new muscle and improves strength and power.
• Improved blood flow via vasodilation can boost energy and promote bigger and better muscles.
• Reaction time and stress are cognitive factors relevant to sports performance.
