Good sports nutrition | The key to good performance

It's important to pay extra attention to nutrition when you work out a lot. A healthy and varied diet is a good, solid basis for this. But sports nutrition can be a good addition, especially in endurance sports. This food can support you even better before, during or after your training. It's especially designed to deliver energy directly to your muscles, without making extra work for your stomach or intestines.

What's the difference between hypotonic and isotonic sports drinks?

At Mantel we have a wide range of sports drinks. For example, we have hypotonic sports drinks, which are perfect to keep yourself hydrated during longer cycling trips. In comparison, isotonic sports drinks contain more sugars and minerals. That's why they're suitable for heavier workouts, as they replenish your energy reserves well. Both hypotonic and isotonic drinks are available as convenient powders, so you can mix them with water in your water bottle before your training. Some sports drinks also come as tablets, which are especially easy to supplement your drink with on the go.

What types of energy gels are there?

Energy gels are an absolute must-have during heavy exertion, which is why this type of liquid sports nutrition is often used during competitions or heavy training. The gel form makes them easy to consume, even with a high heart rate. The gels are full of sugars and fast carbohydrates, so you feel their effect immediately. Some gels also contain added caffeine, minerals or sugars.

What types of energy bars are there?

Energy bars are an important part of sports nutrition, and come in many different varieties. Sports bars are like the main course during your sporting activity. Some bars give you an immediate energy boost, while others provide you with energy for a longer period of time. There are also recovery bars, which ensure a quick recovery after your training.

What is the value of recovery food?

Workout done? Back at home with your feet up? Great idea, but don't forget the importance of good recovery foods. These foods contain the right building blocks to help your body recover quickly, making you ready for your next workout faster. There's recovery food aimed specifically at muscle growth, and simply for optimal recovery after your workout.
