The end of the month of May brings several interesting events for lovers of active life, which means that they need very good preparation. Whether you are a professional, a beginner or an occasional sports enthusiast – you need to eat right to reach maximum performance and keep your body’s health under control. A protein is the basis for this.
Nowadays, more and more physically active people decide to supplement their protein needs in an alternative way – through supplements and specialized products. Preparation begins the moment you sign up for the race. Thus, in the days leading up to the race, it is recommended to increase the intake of protein in the body.
To start the day, one of the newest products on the Macedonian market is Vitalia’s protein oatmeal, which is a delicious combination of 65% whole grain oats, crunchy hazelnuts and sweet pieces of white chocolate. This oatmeal is ideal for consumption in the morning and before greater physical activity because it provides 14g of protein, is free of added sugars and contains a high amount of vegetable fiber.
Right before the actual race or physical activity, it is important to feel your best and have energy from start to finish. Therefore, always have a protein bar on hand to replenish the protein supply in the body. And during the race, especially if it is a marathon or a longer race, remember to take a protein ball made of vegetable protein, to stimulate your muscle mass and give you a new dose of energy, with which you will “fly” across the finish line! The best thing about them is that they come in small packages and in multiple flavors – so you can take them with you anywhere and never get tired of the taste.
And of course, last but not least – the finish.
What after the realization of the goal?
After the physical activity, the body needs to rest and regenerate. The best way to do that is to pay attention to regular hydration, intake of fresh water and healthy liquids, and proper nutrition in the days to come. Protein bars from Vitalia, which contain 21g of protein and less than 2g of sugar, can provide excellent and quick replenishment of lost electrolytes and energy.
Do not forget to prepare a delicious protein shake, with whey protein that serves as a dietary supplement and helps the body to regenerate, for the synthesis of muscle mass, reduces inflammation, strengthens the immune system and nourishes the body. Include it in your daily diet plan and feel how it gives you the strength to withstand the challenges that lie ahead of you.
The best Macedonian health food company Vitalia constantly supports athletes and people with an active lifestyle, not only through the development of new products intended for this target group, but also through the support of their events and successes. Thus, Vitalia was a supporter of the Ohrid Ultra Trail race that took place this month, and during the weekend the company will join the “Race of Poetry” in Struga, which consists of the Main Race (10 km), Recreational Race (5 km) and Children’s race (1 km).
