Sport Supplements

By: Ricky Bailey


What is a sport supplement?

    • They are products used to enhance athletic performance that may include vitamins, minerals, amino acids, herbs, or botanicals (plants) — or any concentration, extract, or combination of these. These products are generally available over the counter without a prescription, they are also known as dietary supplements.
    • Sport Supplements are broken down into 4 different categories: Protein, Pre-Workout, Intra-Workout, and Post-Workout.

Benefits of Protein Shakes
  • Recovery
    • During your workout you tear and damage the skeletal muscle tissue. Drinking a protein shake after a workout, however, provides the nutrients and amino acids necessary to start the recovery and regeneration process. The amino acids help to build and repair muscles and bones along with other body cells damaged during the workout. Athletes or bodybuilders looking to build muscle mass and strength should consume 30 to 45 g of protein, while others can see benefits from 15 to 30 g of protein.
  • Energy
    • Protein shakes provide a quick source of energy by replenishing glycogen stores lost during the workout. Carbohydrates, for example, are a primary source of energy and the carbohydrates in the protein shake "refuel" your body to replenish the energy stores in the skeletal muscles, liver and blood. The protein, carbohydrates and other nutrients in the protein shake help your body control various bodily functions such as metabolism.
  • What are protein shakes?
    • Protein is one of the body's main building blocks for muscle, bone, skin, and other tissues. Used often by athletes, protein shakes come in many combinations of protein, carbohydrates, and fats. They can range from 100% protein to mostly carbohydrates with a little added protein and fat. Protein shakes come in a variety of flavors in powder form or in ready-to-drink packages, such as cans or foil packs.

  • Weight Loss
    • Weight loss is a common fitness goal and consuming a protein shake after a workout may help you reach your weight loss goals. By drinking a protein shake after a workout, you reduce your daily caloric intake while consuming a small amount of protein and additional nutrients. However, protein shakes are designed to complement a balanced nutrition plan of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean protein along with regular physical activity.
