The ingredients dear to the muscles


Milk or egg protein, dietary fiber, sugars and starches, “botanicals.” All ingredients of supplements dedicated to sports nutrition are described in the brochure “About Sport Nutrition,” published by ESSNA.

The recipe for the most popular sports supplements is based on a protein contribution (from milk, eggs, soy, meat), simple sugars (sucrose, fructose) or starches from cereals (such as corn, wheat, oats). Micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals, amino acids, and herbal ingredients can be added. Carbohydrate drinks-among the most popular products-may contain all of these elements, in addition to additives that may be needed for more targeted performance.

More specific to sports nutrition are protein supplements indicated for those engaged in intense physical exercise and amino acids, which provide athletes with the necessary supply for muscle recovery, repair, and growth. Also popular among the ingredients is creatine, found in foods and produced by the body, which promotes endurance and muscle growth.
