Restorative Nutrition

  • Low-zinc diet

1. Peak O2 uptake down —> decreased muscle strength

2. O2 output down

3.Respiratory exchange ratio down—> endurance decrease

  • Omega 3

1. Motivation and drive to succeed is higher in athletes with omega-3 fats–> Less depressed.

2. Improved performance due to upgrading blood flows to muscles.

3. Reduces muscle inflammation.

  • Glutamine

1.Improved connective-tissue repair.

  • Vitamin B6

1.Promotes red-blood cells formation; it regulates the excretion of water; energy production & resistance to stress. (How?) by making iron more available –> more iron –> more haemoglobin and more O2 available for the working muscles + makes CHO (Carbohydrates) more burnable for mitochondria (power cells in your muscles).

  •  The principal nutrients involved in making red blood cells are

a) zinc

b) folic acid

c) Vitamin B6 and B12 and C
