Sports Supplements for Swimmers: Are Vitamin Supplements Good For You?
Imagine your body is a car.
Athletes who train a lot.
The more you train, the more fuel and nutrients your body needs to carry on performing those actions. The right nutrients are critical to ensuring that your body is repairing itself correctly. If you are lacking certain minerals, you have a much higher chance of going to practice not fully recovered, which, at best, will give you a less effective workout, and at worst can lead to injuries. As mentioned, a healthy diet is a great start, however for intense level athletes it usually is not enough, and this is where supplementation is recommended.
For the vegetarians and vegans out there
There are a ton of benefits associated with being a vegetarian and vegan, however, this dietary choice means you'll need to take extra care in making sure you provide your body with the nutrients that could be missing from your diet, or are harder to acquire. Taking sports supplements is a great way to make sure you are not left with any potential "gaps" in your diet.
Take special care in making sure you get these nutrients:
P2Life's NutriBoost Shake is a perfect choice for any vegetarians (especially vegetarian athletes) who want to make sure they are not missing out on any nutrients that they need on a daily basis.
Those who aren't eating as healthily as they should
If you fall into this category this will not only have a negative short term impact on your athletic performance and health, but a long term one too. You can improve your diet by focusing on quality rather than quantity, and keeping in mind that the more colorful (meaning vegetables and fruits) your plate is, the healthier it is likely to be.
Supplements can be a great help, especially if you feel a healthy diet is hard to maintain given your demanding lifestyle. However, if you are serious about improving your athletic performance, changing to a healthier diet is a must.
Our P2Life supplements can help fill in the nutritional gaps in your diet.
