If you play any sport, you're certainly not average. That's why you can't eat like an average person. Regular exercise requires extra energy intake, as nutrients need to be available all the time to keep you going.
You need to ensure an adequate protein intake to support muscle building and your body's enzyme processes. But that's not all, you also need to focus on minerals, trace elements, plant pigments (which contain flavonoids and antioxidants) and vitamins.
What are the vegetables and fruits that should never be left out of an athlete's diet? Which plants should be consumed to protect the body from the negative effects of sport?
If you want to achieve significant results, your diet as an athlete should be based on these 4 pillars of protection:
Berries – to protect the heart and the vascular system, and to support the circulation with the flavonoids contained in blueberries, blackcurrants, grapes, elderberries, sloes, etc.
Plants that support blood formation and oxygen transport capacity (vitamin C for iron and copper absorption). e.g. beets, blackcurrants, etc.
You need to reduce the destructive effects of free radicals with plants high in vitamins C, A, selenium and carotene, e.g., sea buckthorn, carrots, grapes, blueberries, blackcurrants, etc.
What can these substances do for you?
- they have a natural anti-inflammatory effect
- they contain antioxidants that prevent the 'vandalism' of free radicals
- they ensure the neutralisation and rapid elimination of waste products produced during exercise
The recommended plants help the body to neutralise pathological processes, thus improving endurance, shortening recovery times and increasing performance.
A 4th pillar of protection are natural mineral salts. These regulate your body's acid-base balance, improve your stamina and boost muscle performance. They can be found in plants such as beetroot, blueberries, carrots, Jerusalem artichokes, etc.
So, this is the must-have recipe for success! But the question immediately arises: with all the training you do, how will you manage to get so many essential healthy foods into your diet – every day of the year?

Athletes' diets do not essentially diverge from a modern healthy diet, but the recommended daily intake is different because of the higher energy requirements. It's important to be balanced, eat quality food and avoid harmful food products.
It is well known that the performance of athletes can be greatly improved by a well balanced diet. Read about the experience of a successful footballer who regularly consumes InnoFit products to naturally replenish the vitamins and minerals his body needs.
"As an athlete, I have tried to find the quickest and most effective way to supplement the vitamins and minerals that my body needs. This is usually done in the form of supplements. I had a period when I started the day with 10 to 12 synthetic tablets a day, but I didn't experience any particular change or improvement. In fact, all I did experience were stomach aches. I was getting worried about the negative effects that all these artificially produced substances would have on my health. As I wasn't really sure that this was the best way to go, I tried to find a better and more natural solution. After much fruitless searching, I finally found the products of InnoFit. The first product experience was immediately convincing, so I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. The acidification of my muscles, physical fatigue and exhaustion I experienced during high intensity workouts started to appear much later. My days also started much easier after having InnoFit products with my breakfast. I have been a regular consumer of the products ever since and I don't have to worry about the negative effects of synthetically manufactured products. I would highly recommend them to any athlete who wants to find the most natural and simple way to supplement their diet with vitamins and minerals."
