An increasing number of athletes are choosing plant-based nutrition to fuel their bodies. Their reasons can range from health concerns to taste preference. A few athletes even choose a vegetarian diet for performance, considering it a “cleaner” way to fuel their workouts.
As an elite athlete, your nutritional demands separate you from others. In a majority of cases, elite athletes may require individualized dietary counseling to address their highly specific nutritional needs. But with a few considerations and the help of Isagenix products, you may find an advantage while making important nutritional choices for your sport.
Athletes have used creatine as an extra competitive edge for over two decades. But new research suggests creatine’s benefits reach far beyond athletic performance. Currently, this vital substrate for cellular energy is being investigated for its beneficial effects on the brain, aging, and even bones (1).
Creatine supplementation has been a popular go-to for the serious athlete striving to put on extra muscle and optimize their workouts. But unlike typical supplementation regimens, creatine “loading” is a long-standing, common practice where the individual supplements with four to five times the amount of creatine the body needs with the purpose of rapidly saturating the muscles with the energy-producing compound.
Nitrates are compounds found in a variety of foods and are even produced by our own bodies. Most dietary nitrates are derived from vegetables, which soak up nitrogen from the soil and convert it to nitrates in vegetables. Since the complexities of dietary nitrates and their impact on performance can be confusing, we’re breaking down the science of dietary nitrates so that you can understand a little more about the benefits of eating more vegetables:
AMPED™ Power provides a powerful and effective pre-workout formula with active ingredients that work together to support blood flow and nutrient delivery to muscles, boost athletic performance, and aid in muscle contraction. One of those major active ingredients is Nitrosigine®.
Endurance athletes are unique in their nutritional requirements, largely due to the fact that endurance exercise requires greater amounts of fuel. Preparation comes down to ensuring you get the right amounts of carbohydrates and other supplemental nutrients at the right time. Endurance athletes also need to get adequate protein to offset muscle protein breakdown and hasten recovery.
In the second of a four part series on the new Performance Line, Alex Mohr, M.Sc. and CSCS take a closer look at the science behind AMPED Power. The pre-workout period is all about preparing the body with readily available energy, supporting blood flow, and enhancing focus. The special mixture of ingredients in AMPED Power address each one of those.
