Sports nutrition is the science and skill of applying nutrition and diet to sports to achieve an optimal athletic performance. It deals with nutritional needs of a physically active person, manipulating the energy systems in the body in favor of a peak performance, nutritional approach to accelerate exercise recovery and speed up the healing process of sports injuries, and application of nutraceuticals in sports.
Sports nutrition goes far beyond foods and nutrition, as it incorporates the six sciences of medicine, nutrition, exercise, physiology, biochemistry, and pharmacology. Undoubtedly, sports nutrition is the missing link in an athletic success. It is one of the fundamentals of the athletic performance triangle.
The athletic performance triangle includes “proper training”, “proper eating”, and “proper sleeping”. An optimal athletic performance relies on those three elements, and the lack of any of them would hamper athletic excellence and performance.
Sports nutrition integrates research findings with practicality to generate a tool to enhance human performance. It looks for trends and breakthroughs in research to apply their essences to help athletes reach their peak performance.
Sports nutrition is the bridge between “substance abuse in sports” and “clean sports” by guiding athletes to the latest understanding of nutrition, nutraceuticals, energy systems, and exercise physiology and biochemistry and their relationship to athletic performance.
