INDIVIDUALIZED NUTRITION for the ATHLETE
From a nutritional standpoint, the athlete’s focus should include both macronutrients – protein for muscle rebuilding, carbohydrates for energy renewal, fats for nerve function – as well as the critically important micronutrients – which are the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids your body needs to function optimally every day and over a lifetime.
We are all biochemically unique, and several factors affect our personal micronutrient needs – age, lifestyle, intensity of physical training, prescription drug usage, past and present illnesses or injuries, absorption rate, genetics and more. The “normal” amount of each micronutrient varies from athlete to athlete, and even in the same athlete depending on circumstances in his or her life.
Sarasota Sports Medicine offers the most sophisticated micronutrient testing available. Our test measures 33 vitamins and minerals in your body, but goes even further – it measures functional, long-term levels within the cell, which evaluates how well your body actually utilizes each nutrient giving you a competitive edge and ensuring top performance.
The testing provides indications for the following:
- Micronutrient Demand, Synergy & Balance
- Muscle Recovery & Fatigue Levels
- Cellular Energy Requirements
- Oxidative Stress Levels
- Omega-3 Fat levels for Concussion Protection
- Immunity & Hormone Regulation
