Nutrition to power sports performanceNutrition 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.
