Electrolytes: Hydration For Performance

495   360 

An electrolyte is any substance containing free ions that behaves as an electrically conductive medium. That means that one of the main functions of electrolytes is to work together to conduct nerve impulses that allow you to contract your muscles. Other functions include controlling fluid balance and regulating certain hormones.

Essential Nutrients

261   177 

Although there are many nutrients that are beneficial to take on a daily basis, this category focuses only on the 3 essential groups of nutrients; vitamins & minerals, amino acids, and omega fatty acids. They are considered essential because the body needs them but cannot synthesis them from other substances so they must be obtained from your diet. If you don’t eat enough from your daily food intake, you will be deficient.

Antioxidants neutralize the free radicals created by every breath we take. With exercise and higher oxygen intake (exercise uses 12 -20 times more oxygen then sitting), the increased free radicals produced cause damage in the form of inflammation and muscle pain. And, in the long run, free radicals are a major contributor to the aging process. Your best defense is to increase your consumption of nutrients rich in antioxidant properties such as vitamins C and E, astaxanthin, and grape seed extract.

Amino Acids

Amino Acids are the building blocks of the body that make up proteins. These make up the muscles, tendons, and organs to name a few. All the cells in your body depend on them for growth and maintenance. The body can make some of the amino acids from other nutrients but others it can’t. The body must get them from your diet. These are called essential amino acids (EAA) and include the Branched Chain Amino Acids (aka BCAA).

Iron, are you deficient?

There is a lot of confusion about iron. How much do I need? Am I deficient? Is there a test for it? These are the typical questions that are common among athletes and for good reasons. Iron is critical to top performance. Iron is key to the production of hemoglobin, the red pigment in the blood that takes oxygen and carries it to the working muscles (as well as organs and the brain). If you're deficient, you'll feel exhausted, among other things, and not be able to perform in your training, let alone in competition.
