Sports nutrition is designed to support the health and performance of athletes - to keep them at their peak levels of fitness and perform at their best. The elite sports scene has undergone rapid development in recent years. Increasing physical and technical demands on players, more sophisticated training regimens, and busy match schedules have stressed the backroom staff to keep players at their peak.
Many top clubs now employ full-time nutritional experts who manage customized nutritional programmes based on training plans, development and injuries. Experts are investing more time researching the best products to bring into their environment to deliver immediate results – there's no time to hang around.
Does Turmeric play a role?
Turmeric is a spice that has been used in Indian cuisine for thousands of years. It is a critical ingredient in curry powder and gives curry its characteristic yellow colour. In recent years, Turmeric has been gaining popularity for its health benefits. Turmeric contains a curcumin compound, which has potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. These effects have been shown to help reduce pain and muscle damage from exercise and speed up sports recovery.
In elite sports, athletes balance the fluid pressures of busy schedules, intense training, and ever-changing fixtures by using Turmeric as a natural recovery aid.
On the contrary, Turmeric has the potential to increase the performance of just about anyone.
It presents an excellent case for people of all levels of sport and physical activity to adopt Turmeric into their recovery diet.
Aside from its anti-inflammation properties, Turmeric is also known for lowering cholesterol and triglycerides in people at risk of heart disease and blood pressure.
It also has antioxidant properties to be great for hair and skin. But, whilst healthier skin and hair is an added plus, it's not the reason we are seeing an increase in turmeric consumption amongst top athletes!
