You can give up meat and get excellent sports performance at the same time, the important thing is to know how to combine foods with each other, in order to get the maximum benefit from them.

The advantages are:

  • Reduction of oxidative stress related to physical activity;
  • Better post-workout recovery;
  • Increased efficiency of the immune system.
The optimal nutrition of the athlete is that which guarantees him the fuel to face the training and all the minerals and vitamins necessary to replace those lost during physical exertion, as well as the proteins necessary for muscle recovery.

The supply of water allows you to replenish the supplies lost with the increase in sweating and to properly hydrate the muscles , preventing the formation of cramps . Even a little dehydration can lead to significantly lower performance than desired!

Foods rich in Vitamin C must be taken before and after training, in fact sportspeople are subject to strong oxidative stress and a consequent production of free radicals.
Choosing lemon juice, black currants, blueberries, artichokes, kale, peppers, blackberries, raspberries, oranges and kiwis will help counter this trend.
There are many athletes who use ascorbic acid to protect the body from oxidation damage.
As an alternative to ascorbic acid, it is possible to focus on multivitamins with antioxidant action such as the Vitaes complex , a complex of vitamins A, E and Selenium.
