Fueling - Team Sports

Fueling

Nutrition for Team Sports, such as Football (soccer), BasketballHockeyHandball, and others, is very important, as energy is not only required for sustaining the effort but also to feed the brain and enable athletes to maintain precision in their actions, respond quickly, and make optimal tactical decisions.

Proper nutrition consists of three integral parts:

  • Loading (what we eat before exercise)
  • Fueling (what we eat during exercise)
  • Recovery (what we eat after exercise)

The most important aspect of each part is to ingest enough quality carbohydrates to load, preserve, and replenish muscle and liver glycogen stores and to properly hydrate and rehydrate to preserve the balance of electrolytes in the blood.

The Nduranz Electrolyte Mix provides your body with the electrolytes it actually loses in sweat, providing the body only what it needs and nothing more, preserving the careful balance of electrolytes in the blood and avoiding digestive issues with excessive minerals!

The Nduranz Carbohydrate Ratio (1:0.8 maltodextrin and fructose) allows your body to ingest 90 grams or more of carbohydrates per hour, making use of both energy transporters to maximize energy availability and minimize risk of digestive issues.

The Nrgy Unit allows you to easily determine and keep track of your caloric intake, making it easier than ever to fuel for the work required.
