Athletes have an increased need for micro and macronutrients, as well as trace elements. Sprouts can help to balance this need very easily and tasty too.
Above all, the regenerative power and unmistakable liveliness of the rungs is very much appreciated by athletes. Sure, because if we encourage our bodies to perform at their best, we reach our limits faster. Thus we can also feel faster and more clearly what gives the body strength - in action and during regeneration.
The liveliness plays a central role! The cells are not only optimally supplied with the density of nutrients from the sprouts. They are also flooded with "edible" light from the biophotons and the chlorophyll of the sprouts. In this way, the processes at cell level can run significantly better. We feel this in the increased performance in sport and in the shortened regeneration time. So we are back on the pitch faster and fitter!
Good to know: During sport, in addition to new muscle mass, harmful free radicals are created, which are released and then directly " should be mucked out. The best way to do this is with antioxidants, the scavengers of free radicals. A lot of these effective little helpers can be found in cruciferous vegetables such as radishes, radishes and kale.
Depending on which sport you pursue with which goal, you should also vary the types of sprouts. We recommend that you have your blood levels tested for critical nutrients on a regular basis. Discuss the results with your doctor or nutritionist.
Critical nutrients to watch out for as an athlete:
- Iron (oxygen supply)
- Magnesium (energy metabolism, protein synthesis, regeneration)
- Amino acids / proteins (muscle building, basic substance)
- Omega3 fatty acids
- Vitamins B and D (nervous system, muscle building,
- Zinc (immune system)
- Iodine, selenium (thyroid, immune system, endocrine system)
Here is our selection of recommended bars for athletes:
- All legumes (chickpeas, mung beans, lentils, adzuki beans - & gt; especially suitable for those with a sweet tooth in the form of healthy brownies)
- Buckwheat (12% protein, gluten-free)
- Fenugreek (30% vegetable proteins)
