Do you suffer with frequent colds, infections, cold sores or athlete's foot? Do you lack energy? Do you have to rush to the toilet when you are out running or have digestive discomfort? Do you have painful muscles or joints? Is managing your weight difficult? Is your summer training tarnished by hay fever? Is your health affecting your performance?
Functional Sports Nutrition is often used by people to check that they are on the right track regarding diet, though more importantly it can also help with nutritional imbalances which may be contributing to your symptoms of ill health. Optimum intakes of nutrients also enhance performance by: supporting muscle recovery, aiding injury recovery, reducing fatigue, increasing stamina and power, supporting immunity, and increasing fat burning capacity.
By attending to the health of body systems, which is obtained by appropriate nutritional and lifestyle strategies, the base of sporting performance is supported. Each person is an individual with unique requirements and a personalised nutrition plan is developed with you.
