3. Supplementing strategy developed by the Enervit Team
It is important to optimize energy levels before each workout. Eating carbohydrates with a low glycemic index (e.g. isomaltulose) and excluding those with a high glycemic index in the hour preceding the workout promotes the oxidation of fatty acids during physical activity. The use of these fats determines how much glycogen is retained, which is therefore available for a longer period during physical exertion. Moreover, jelly formats and the absence of fat would seem to promote gastric emptying and, therefore, to speed up digestion.
During physical activity, it is important to hydrate the body continuously in order to increase endurance while also reducing muscle fatigue. It is important to take salts and carbohydrates dissolved in water so as to replenish the losses caused by sweating during sports activities. In the event of prolonged exercise, muscle energy should be supplemented with bars and gels in order to top up glycogen reserves, promote fat oxidation and help reduce muscle fatigue.
The stages of recovery after physical exertion are important moments in the life of an athlete. It is important to act quickly in order to top up energy reserves and heal any muscle damage that can occur after strenuous and prolonged exercise. It is essential, especially if training sessions are foreseen in the near future, to assist in the rapid recovery of energy reserves, muscle efficiency and hydro-saline deficiencies right from the first ten minutes following the end of a workout.
