What exactly happens in the body during ‘recovery’ after an effort?
A good recovery goes hand in hand with a complex balance between different physiological processes. The recovery process in the body is characterized by physiological processes that result in a reduced expression of inflammatory genes and an enhanced expression of antioxidant genes. In addition, the expression of genes that support the glucose uptake in the muscle cells is enhanced. This is important for the rapid replenishment of the energy supply in the muscles.
In periods of build-up, an athlete expects his or her body to adapt to the effort so that better and better sports performances can be delivered afterwards. Also in this process there is a very personal factor and the result depends on the expression of the genes that are responsible for the optimization of the training stimulus in you.
What is the Nutrigenomic Recovery?
The Nutrigenomic Recovery supports the recovery of your body after intensive sports performance by optimizing the supply of nutrients and substances with a physiological effect that are useful in the complex body reactions that lead to recovery. Moreover, the way in which a body recovers is very personal. Your own genetic code determines how well and quickly you recuperate and to what extent your diet can have an effect on this. Choosing the right nutrients is very important for a good and fast result.
The combination of the Nutrigenomic Recovery with the classic 4Gold Recovery provides a broad support for the recovery of your body and can facilitate a progressive training structure, taking into account the interpersonal variability, the way in which your body will use nutrients to optimally support its own recovery functions.
What makes Nutrigenomic Recovery so special?
Nutrigenomic Recovery is a food supplement that has been developed as a supplement to the normal nutrition of athletes.
Nutrigenomic Recovery is a concentrated source of nutrients and substances with a physiological effect that are part of a complex mixture of plant preparations.
Sulphoraphane is a substance found in cruciferous plants, especially broccoli, kale, cauliflower, kohlrabi, etc.
Sulphoraphane is associated with the positive physiological effects of these plants, in particular their supporting effect on our defense mechanisms and their detoxification via liver enzymes.
The effect on athletes
The body’s reactions to sulforaphane intake are very interesting for an athlete because they run parallel to our body’s reaction to a physical stress factor, in particular a workout. In this way, sulforaphane prepares our body, as it were, for a reaction to intensive exercise. The body’s natural reaction to heavy physical effort varies from person to person and leads to a different capacity to compensate for this effort. In other words, intensive effort will not always activate all recovery processes in everyone. Sulphoraphane can then help to support these processes.
When should I take the Nutrigenomic Recovery?
The Nutrigenomic Recovery works synergistically with the classic Recovery, but is not taken immediately after the training.
We recommend taking the Nutrigenomic Recovery a few hours after training or in the morning.
It is also not the intention to merge the two products, but to use them separately.
