Intense workouts and competitions empty energy stores and weaken the muscles. The right nutrition enhances performance and significantly reduces recovery time. To ensure optimal recovery after prolonged endurance sports, carbohydrate and protein should be consumed in a ratio of about 3:1 to 4:1. Carbohydrates fill up glycogen stores while protein supports muscle recovery and maintenance. Our formulas are enriched with adequate amounts of micronutrients, such as vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals, depending on the use.
The amount of carbohydrates may be reduced during low carb diet periods or for shorter workouts that demand less energy but are still hard on the muscles. Pure protein products may also be used for regeneration depending on the situation or metabolism/nutrition related goals.This depends on your individual diet after exercising and also on you specific metabolism- and nutritional targets. In particular endurance athletes often underestimate their protein requirements and associate protein supplementation with muscle growth and weightlifting rather than its significance for muscle maintenance. SPONSER® offers a wide range of regeneration products, such as drinks, shakes, regeneration bars and supplements.
