Why Active Lifestyle
Equation is Simple :
What You Put In, You Get Out!"
Athletes and their
nutritionists spent much of their time
focusing on two aspects of sports nutrition
- quantity (how much food the athlete
is eating) and quality (the type of
nutrient, such as carbohydrate, protein
or fat). Now, researchers have confirmed
what bodybuilders and strength athletes
have known for years - the fact that
nutrient timing also makes a big difference
to gains in performance.
Its more than just protein and carbohydrates:
Micronutrients are required for you
to get the maximum benefit from the
and fats). "Science shows
that proper nutrition at the cellular
level is at least as important to both
health and athletic performance
as strength training, cardiovascular
training, and recovery time.
In fact, it’s the foundation for everything
else. When you’ve trained as hard as
you can, supplementing your diet with
nutrients designed specifically to boost
muscle growth, recovery, circulation,
energy efficiency, and resilience of
muscle fibers and connective tissue
make all the difference."
Dr Andrew Myers: Supplementation
When you provide your body's cells with
the nutrition they need, you enable
your body to function at its very best.
As a result, your metabolic rate improves,
you feel more balanced, your immune
system is supported, energy levels soar
and your body can stay active longer.
There are five basic
components to the science of performance
nutrition: fuelling, hydration, refuelling,
repair and recovery. We offer products

Take this micronutrient supplement
with meals. We're seeing a gradual
erosion of the nutritional value
of food... in everything from
the vitamin C content of oranges
through to the zinc and copper
levels in corns and other grains.
Micronutrients play key roles
in the metabolism of carbohydrates
and fats which are your primary
muscle fuels during exercise.
They’re also involved in the
repair and building of muscle
protein in response to training.
If a particular micronutrient
is in short supply, its enzyme
is like a motor with fouled
spark plugs; it can’t function
at full capacity, and you can’t
operate at your best.
