Balanced performance in sport
Doing sport is good for body and soul – but it can be hard to maintain peak performance. What affects athletic performance? Why is regeneration so important after physical activity? And what role does Basica® Sport play?
Performance in sport
A healthy and balanced metabolism is an important prerequisite for maximising physical performance during sport. This knowledge lies at the heart of Basica® Sport, our answer to the demanding performance expectations of today’s athletes. Sport provides an ideal counterbalance to daily work routines and helps prevent stress. But it also takes a toll on your body – so you need to make sure you give your body the resources it needs. What does that mean? People who regularly engage in sport need endurance during physical activity itself and want fast regeneration when they’re done.
Endurance and energy for the duration of your physical activity
Basica® Sport offers a formula that is tailored to the holistic needs of athletes. Based on the latest findings in nutritional science, it delivers key performance-relevant nutrients before, during and after sport.
The carbohydrate-electrolyte solution contributes to the maintenance of endurance performance during prolonged endurance training and simultaneously improves the absorption of fluids.
Carbohydrates in the form of sucrose are quickly absorbed by the body, so they are immediately available for your muscles to use. This is a great way to top up your body’s energy reserves before doing sport. Meanwhile, the maltodextrin is absorbed more slowly, providing a steady supply of energy with no spikes in blood sugar.
The electrolytes in Basica® Sport offset what your body loses when you sweat during sport. Calcium, copper and vitamin B2 support the energy-yielding metabolism, while magnesium contributes to normal muscle function.
Proper regeneration after sport
The effort involved in metabolism and the physical exertion of the muscles in sport cause an increase in acid production. This, in turn, leads to muscle tension and a loss of strength. This is why it is so important to supply the body with minerals and carbohydrates* to regenerate the muscles – especially after intense exercise. After all, muscles can perform at their best only once they have recovered properly.
Carbohydrates contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function after highly intensive physical exercise has led to depletion of glycogen stores in skeletal muscle. After sport, the carbohydrates in Basica® Sport support regeneration and provide optimum conditions for the next round.
