Orthomolecular nutritional supplements - use in sport
The right diet is an important factor in getting the most out of sporting activities - whether endurance sports or strength-orientated sports such as bodybuilding. Orthomolecular nutritional supplements in the form of high-dose micronutrients (vitamins, minerals and other vital substances) are very popular nowadays in both popular and competitive sports.
No wonder. After all, these supplements can be used to increase your own performance, promote regeneration and utilise other positive effects.
A study recently showed that a high intake of vitamin E (compared to a placebo) can protect against muscle injuries during sport. Another study from 2012 showed positive correlations between the intake of antioxidant vitamins (A, C, E) and muscle injuries, immune status and oxidative stress. A clear indication that orthomolecular food supplements have a beneficial effect on regeneration and the body's defences.
Improved or faster regeneration in turn leads to increased performance. These can occur when building muscle in weight training / bodybuilders, a higher top speed or also better endurance. Endurance can also be increased through the intake of ubiquinone (coenzyme Q10) - an essential component of the respiratory chain. In a Japanese study, the addition of Q10 led to lower oxygen consumption during exercise.
What does this mean for us? Lower oxygen consumption = longer endurance.
Orthomolecular nutritional supplements from Nutri-Plus for athletes
Nutri-Plus Sport Essentials combines these micronutrients in one orthomolecular product and utilises all their positive properties. Other ingredients include the amino acid L-Arginine (the only precursor of nitric oxide), L-Carnitine (transports fatty acids into the mitochondria of muscle cells where they are burned for energy) as well as bioflavonoids and much more.
In order to cover the increased protein requirement at the same time, we recommend combining it with our aspartame-free and vegan protein shake - which, by the way, is ideal for vegetarians as well as for low-carb diets.
The only thing we can't do for you is the training...
What our customers say:
"I have been using the product for 4 weeks now together with the Shape & Shake from Nutri-Plus (recommended!) and am somewhere between very satisfied and enthusiastic. I've been able to increase my squat weight by 10kg, for example, I feel fitter and more rested and (at least that's what I imagine) my sore muscles go away more quickly, which means my regeneration has improved...
I'll definitely continue to use it and then report back, but as things stand I can recommend it absolutely and unreservedly."
"...I feel fitter since then and have been able to improve my performance during training."
