Why Active Lifestyle Nutrition - The Equation is Simple : What You Put In, You Get Out!"

Athletes and their nutritionists spent much of their time focusing on two aspects of sports nutrition - quantity (how much food the athlete is eating) and quality (the type of nutrient, such as carbohydrate, protein or fat). Now, researchers have confirmed what bodybuilders and strength athletes have known for years - the fact that nutrient timing also makes a big difference to gains in performance.

Its more than just protein and carbohydrates:

Micronutrients are required for you to get the maximum benefit from the macronutrients(protein, carbohydrates and fats). "Science shows that proper nutrition at the cellular level is at least as important to both health and athletic performance as strength training, cardiovascular training, and recovery time. In fact, it’s the foundation for everything else. When you’ve trained as hard as you can, supplementing your diet with nutrients designed specifically to boost muscle growth, recovery, circulation, energy efficiency, and resilience of muscle fibers and connective tissue make all the difference."  Dr  Andrew Myers: Supplementation for Athletes

When you provide your body's cells with the nutrition they need, you enable your body to function at its very best. As a result, your metabolic rate improves, you feel more balanced, your immune system is supported, energy levels soar and your body can stay active longer.

There are five basic components to the science of performance nutrition: fuelling, hydration, refuelling, repair and recovery. We offer products to assist in all the stages of sports nutrition.

What fuel do you use?
2 Star - Fast food, processed food and sugary snacks.
4 Star - Foods from the supermarket, where the nutritional value has been eroded over many years. Yet exercise drains nutrients from the body.
6 Star - Herbalife products (high quality ingredients and easily absorbed by the body)
Fuelling at Meal Times - What to eat before a workout, race or match?  Consume a meal low in fibre and fat as they take longer to digest and can cause gastrointestinal distress. There is a need to fuel up before a workout. Food that is not too heavy but nutritious:

Herbalife24 is the new range aimed at elite athletes the Ferrari of sports nutrition and used athletes such as Ronaldo Formula 1 gets unbelievable results, Herbalife 24 Formula 1 Sport even better!

Formula 1 - Easily absorbed and assimilated "6 star fuel" . Complex carbs, vegetable protein, vitamins and minerals. Mixing with water is a good option prior to the workout or competition as many athletes don't like milk sugar (lactose) prior to exercise. Add fruits.

New Free from Formula 1 Shake - Leading tennis players, for example have switched to a gluten free diet and seen big improvements in performance. This shake, ideal as pre-workout, match or race meal is free from lactose, gluten and soy.

Formula 2 -  Take this micronutrient supplement with meals. We're seeing a gradual erosion of the nutritional value of food... in everything from the vitamin C content of oranges through to the zinc and copper levels in corns and other grains. Micronutrients play key roles in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats which are your primary muscle fuels during exercise. They’re also involved in the repair and building of muscle protein in response to training. If a particular micronutrient is in short supply, its enzyme is like a motor with fouled spark plugs; it can’t function at full capacity, and you can’t operate at your best.
