Sports nutrition – lasting energy for top performance
Starting a long run (or any intense exercise) on an empty stomach is never wise. A carbohydrate-rich meal a couple of hours before starting, e.g. a good portion of pasta, is perfect. But what about something eat just before or even during exercise? Energy-rich sports food you can eat quickly between meals is available in numerous guises as bars, gels, wafers or gums. Carbohydrate-rich food is best before and during sports. After sport, for faster recovery, foods rich in protein are best. Whether you're hiking, running or cycling, sports food in the form of bars, gels or similar should always be with you to prevent hunger pangs. Try out different types and manufacturers to find your perfect product. Naturally, here at Addnature, we carry a vast range of sports nutrition products so getting started has never been easier.
