Your food is your fuel and what you put into your body directly impacts your athletic performance. Everyone talks about the ingredients that hinder your performance – processed foods, preservatives, sugary sports drinks, etc. And since you already know what to avoid, we’re going to keep things positive over here and talk about the natural ingredients that’ll make you faster, stronger and ultimately, better.
Stir Up a Protein Supplement
Athletes require significantly more protein than the average person but not all protein supplements are created equally. It’s crucial for athletes to have a gluten-free, non-GMO, low calorie, high quality protein powder, or rather, protein mousse to enhance their performance. This ensures you get the right amount of daily protein required for maintenance, repair and growth of muscle mass.
Simply Natural Protein Mousse increases protein consumption, helps athletes lose weight and build more lean muscle, and is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Low quality protein supplements are often infused with undesirable ingredients that pose a potential risk to health and performance. In fact, they can slow you down just the same way a bad diet would.
Get in Your Super Greens
Super greens consist of a formula that combines a complex range of greens – kale, chard, lettuce, spinach, etc. - to provide a high source of nutrition to athletes. They’re essential to maintaining optimal health and of course, athletic performance.
Since super greens are high in phytonutrients, athletes receive a sufficient amount of fiber needed to heal tissue. They also help to keep you young and thriving – both internally and externally, allowing you to perform athletically longer, stronger and better.
However, like the prior, not all super greens are created equally. In order to relish the benefits, athletes need a pure, natural super greens supplement that contains a raw source of essential nutrients such as amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
Eat Your Oats
Something you don’t always see on the “Must Have Natural Ingredient” lists are oats. After all, it’s a food item often in the middle of the healthy or not debate. However, it all comes down to the quality of the oats you eat. If they’re low quality and produced unnaturally with common factory farming methods, then you won’t receive the benefits you need as an athlete.
However, high quality, natural oats can kick-start your day and provide you with enough energy and nutrients to increase your athletic performance.
Our natural oats, Simply Natural Nutrition Pro-Oats, are made with 100% Australian oats and can be added to your protein supplement. We have added in a healthy dose of colostrum, vitamins and minerals to increase the benefits of starting the day on a wholesome note.
Beware of Binders and Fillers
Everything you need to increase your athletic performance can be found on Simply Natural Nutrition. However, it’s good to also know what to stay away from and why our sources of natural ingredients are so crucial to your health.
You would be shocked if you knew just how many binders and fillers are in athletic supplements, protein shakes, oats and super greens. These are basically “fake” or less healthy and effective alternatives to the real deal. They’re like the fast food to nutrition – they’ll do the job but will also come with a long list of side effects and health hazards.
So, if nothing else, stay clear of low quality nutritional supplements.
As the saying goes, ‘You get what you pay for,’ and that’s especially true when it comes to your body’s fuel. Receive 100% natural ingredients from our protein supplements, super greens and oats. The best part? They’re just as delicious as they are beneficial.
