The best nutrition for optimal performance

The best nutrition for optimal performance

We all know we should eat a varied diet rich in fruit and vegetables. Unfortunately life often gets in the way and we need a superfood boost that's quick and easy. But what should we be aiming for and how can we get it?

 

Berries

Dark berries are rich in antioxidants which need replacing after physical activity. Containing great dietary fibre, they keep you feeling fuller for longer and so reduce hunger cravings and stop us filling up with low nutrient foods.

And for those busy with life's many pressures, we've made things easy for you with our Elixir Vitality juice. Brimming with berries this delicious anti-oxidant will leave you feeling refreshed and energised.

 

Cruciferous vegetables

Dark leafy greens such as spinach, kale and broccoli are high in vitamins and minerals which protect the body from inflammation. They're also full of dietary fibre, keeping you fuller for longer. It's recommend that we eat the equivalent of three heads of broccoli per day - which can sometimes be a bit trying!

Our Organic Wheatgrass juice makes it quick and convenient to get your greens. Just one sachet is equivalent to three heads of broccoli - and it's a lot easier to consume!

 

Hydrating foods

Water is responsible for the majority of chemical reactions in the body when exercising. It regulates body temperature, maintains blood volume and aids muscle contraction. Many studies have been done on the effect of water loss on athletic performance and it's no different for those of us who aren't professional athletes. Hydration is important and eating hydrating foods such as watermelon, celery and oranges can help.

If you're bored of drinking water or don't have hydrating food handy, a sachet of our superfood juice can add a delicious taste. Try our Ginger and Turmeric juice for a revitalising zing.

 

Oatmeal

Wholegrain oatmeal is filled with key vitamins and minerals. These complex carbohydrates are also a great source of energy. But make sure you use steel cut oats opposed to instant oats as they're lower on the glycemic index. You can also add your berries or nuts to your oats to make it a fantastic nutritious meal at any time of the day.

If you'd prefer a different way to boost your energy why not try our Blended Green juice - the mix of nutrients contribute to healthy energy levels and taste great!

 

Beetroot

Consuming beetroot increases nitrate oxide levels in the body. Research shows that this can increase blood flow, improve lung function and strengthen muscle contraction. British Olympians used beetroot juice as a natural performance enhancer and if it's good enough for them it's good enough for us!

 

Salmon

Packed with lean, muscle building protein and essential omega 3 fatty acids, salmon is also a natural artery cleanser. This powerful superfood can help take performance to the next level as well as improving joint health and aiding quicker muscle recovery.

If you don't have access to salmon we recommend Zinzino Omega-3 Oil. It's 100% derived from whole fish with cold-pressed olive oil and vitamin D3, and has lovely fresh, lemony flavour. You'll need a partner recommendation to order and can use this code: 2005865668. 

We hope this makes it easier to get the maximum nutrition into your diet when life gets in the way. To see out full range of superfood juices, just hit the link below.
