The impact of nutrition in sport can often be underestimated, but ultimately it is vital to provide the foundation for athletes to produce energy, recover and ensure the body can adapt to the unique environment it is challenged with.
Every cell in the body relies upon vitamins, minerals, proteins, fats and carbohydrates to function correctly, thus our nutrition is crucial to optimise how well these cells function.
Ensuring we supply the body with effective and adequate levels of these nutrients, the cells, tissues, organs can function optimally.
An athlete's high levels of training, the environment and genetic predisposition means nutrient demands are higher than most individuals. The body therefore needs to be be supported at a cellular level thus improving energy metabolism.
