Sports – the key to proper nutrition

When it comes to sports, our aim is always to achieve top physical performance, intense concentration and quick regeneration. Nutrition is the fuel and the building material that gets us there. A healthy diet, together with high-quality sports supplements, gives us what we need to reach our goals.

The five most important nutrients are:

  • Water
  • Proteins
  • Fats
  • Carbohydrates
  • Vitamins, minerals and trace elements

What is healthy sports nutrition?

A balanced diet, exercise and recovery form the basis of our health and the foundation for all of our goals. What is simple in theory can also be implemented effortlessly in practice with a helpful guide. Okay, almost effortlessly.

In the jungle of nutrition, our reliable compass points us in the right direction: human biochemistry. All of our products are developed based on the findings of this science.

Eating healthy means that we focus our diets around suitable, natural foods as determined by the latest nutrition research. Our meals must consist of fresh foods that are processed as little as possible. Fruits, vegetables, legumes, animal products such as eggs and, if you are not lacto-vegetarian or vegan, meat and fish in moderation. No matter what, always be sure to take a close look at what ends up in your shopping basket.

The connection between sweating and nutrition

Sweating is more than just an uncomfortable fact of life; it’s a key function of our bodies. For this reason, knowing how to optimally support your body’s sweat function is an important building block on the way to achieving your athletic goals.

Actually, around 10% of the water that our body loses every day is sweat. There are many good reasons why we need to let our bodies sweat. But the biggest one is this: sweating prevents our bodies from overheating and protects us against heat exhaustion, heat stroke, and unnecessary dizziness and weakness.

Sweating keeps our skin clean and healthy. This is important, because our skin is covered in countless pores that can collect dirt and toxins. We need to sweat to clear our system of these toxins.

The right way to sweat

As we have discussed, sweating is absolutely vital. For this reason, it is essential that we drink enough water every day. On the one hand, drinking enough water helps to correct the balance of fluids in our bodies, while at the same time preventing deficits in terms of energy and electrolytes. Therefore, when we exercise or during the warmer months, we need to further increase our intake of fluids, energy and electrolytes.

When we sweat, our body loses vital carbohydrates and mineral salts; elements that we need to immediately replenish in our bodies. This works best when we drink isotonic beverages like our BE THE CHANGE Isotonic Drink.

It has everything you need for proper regeneration after exercising.

There are many ways to improve your body’s regeneration between bouts of physical activity: sauna, massage and Kneipp treatments are some common, proven methods. However, nutrition is the most important factor when it comes to regeneration. The key is to quickly refill your empty energy stores and repair any strained protein structures (muscle cells, tendons and ligaments).

If we consume easy-to-digest nutrients in the form of high-quality sports nutrition during these periods of strain (either prepared individually or by a reliable supplier), this can help curb deficiencies.

The energy that we consume during exercise needs to be replaced with high-quality carbohydrates; for individuals on a low-carbohydrate diet (such as low-carb or ketogenic diets), this energy is replaced with high-quality fats or through a combination of fats and carbohydrates.

Protein with a high level of bioavailability is essential for the regeneration of muscle tissue, tendons, ligaments and cartilage. Protein is broken down in our stomachs and turned into amino acids. Using the additional essential amino acids that we consume, our body reconstructs the protein structures that it needs for regeneration.

Ideally, you would consume these nutrients in liquid form directly after exercising. Consuming them in liquid form allows them to more quickly reach your bloodstream than when you consume protein in solid foods. The advantage of quicker absorption is that intact muscle cells are not used as a source of protein for regeneration, thus encouraging muscle development and performance building.

Doping safety

Professional and amateur athletes alike must be able to rely on the fact that their sports nutrition is 100% clean. Impurities can not only be extremely unhealthy, but they can often result in issues during doping tests.

We advise you to be smart when choosing sports products and nutritional supplements. After all, the origin of the ingredients and the farming practices involved can make a huge difference. BE THE CHANGE products guarantee top, clean quality that will never get you into trouble.
