Nutritional supplements are an extra supply of nutrients (chemical elements from outside the body necessary for it to work properly). They consist of food additives or commercial formulas that increase the caloric input. They are very important in an athlete’s diet because they complement the diet, balance it with certain substances and avoid possible nutritional deficiencies that could arise as a result of physical exhaustion due to training.
They help improve performance.
Provide energy and nutrients.
Strengthen the immune system.
Delay the appearance of fatigue.
Improve the resistance.
Beyond the multiple benefits provided by Nutritional Supplements, the athlete must take them in the doses recommended by a qualified professional and not in an arbitrary manner.
