Endurance nutrition is the science of supplying the right nutrition at the right time to ensure that you can compete at your best, keep healthy and generally enhance your exercise experience.
Endurance nutrition products and strategies make it easy to take the right nutrition at the right time to improve your performance and adaptation to exercise through training.
In the past sports nutrition was almost exclusively about fuelling up on carbohydrate and keeping hydrated, these are still important elements of a sports nutrition strategy with increasingly sophisticated products and strategies now available. Science in Sport has led many developments in this area, developing the World’s first isotonic energy gel
for which we received the Queens Award for Enterprise in the Innovation Category.
Our SiS GO range
of products have proven effective to fuel and hydrate, prime and perform athletes for the World’s toughest endurance events where we have worked with elite teams to optimise our formulations.
Increasingly science has shown that the type and timing of nutrition can have important effects on the body and how it responds to training and modern science has increased our understanding of the mechanisms behind adaptation and how to stay healthy whilst coping with tough training loads.
Athletes are now encouraged to plan their post exercise nutrition as diligently as their preparation and performance nutrition. The importance of nutrition after exercise has expanded from strategies to recover or replace carbohydrate energy stores to include methods to enhance muscle repair and adaptation. At Science in Sport we pioneered the idea of a post exercise ‘recovery’ drink for endurance athletes with our original SiS REGO recovery
formulations. Once the sole preserve of strength and muscle building athletes, there has been an increased realisation of the importance of protein for endurance sports. Along with this researchers have stressed the importance of type and timing of protein consumption. Our SiS REGO recovery concept has now been expanded to include bars and fast and slow protein formulations in order to reflect the latest research on nutritional modulation for adaptation to exercise.
The pressures of training and competition can make it difficult to optimise nutrition with regular foods and there is an increased understanding how certain supplements may benefit athletic performance. Athletes have a need for safe effective supplements and our growing range has been developed to address these needs.
The importance of taking the right nutrition at the right time is paramount in optimising performance. On our website we provide product information and nutritional strategies of different complexities to help you find a nutritional solution for your needs, be it a simple hydration solution or more advanced nutritional challenge.
