Nutrition for Runners
Optimise your running performance with the right diet
Nourishing your body with the right carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, trace minerals, antioxidants and electrolytes can be a game changer when it comes to optimising your endurance levels and physical performance.
The success of marathons doesn’t just come down to whether you are at the front of the race or complete the course, it’s also about making sure you come out the other end unscathed. To be truly triumphant, you want to cross the finish line without injuries that require months to heal.
Muscular pain, runner’s diarrhoea, low blood pressure and exhaustion can be just some of the uncomfortable symptoms experienced by runners. But if you get your nutrition right during training, on the day, and after the event; many of these side-effects can be avoided. The right diet can ensure your digestive system is functionally optimally (boosting ‘beneficial’ gut bacteria is vital), your muscles & liver hold strong glycogen (carbohydrates) reserves (prolonging endurance) and your cells are optimally hydrated (a mere 2% drop in hydration levels has been shown to drastically impair physical & mental performance).
