Supplements for cyclists

To set your cycling bests, it’s important to ensure you have a healthy and fit body. For that you need a good diet, adequate sleep, and low levels of stress. Supplements can also offer additional support. A well-designed multivitamin supplement will provide you with a broad range of essential vitamins and minerals. Additionally, specific vitamin and mineral supplements can be used when there is an increased need. For instance, it is advisable to take a vitamin D supplement during the autumn and winter months.

Nutrition for cycling

Carbohydrates and cycling are inextricably linked. During long-distance cycles, your body uses a lot of energy from carbohydrates. As the reserves of carbohydrates in your body are relatively small, you want to make the best use of them. Consuming carbohydrates before you go cycling ensures that you can start your cycling activity with plentiful energy reserves. Food that is rich in carbohydrates, such as bread and pasta, is perfect for this. Sports nutrition can also be used to replenish these energy reserves. We recommend consuming sports nutrition while you are cycling, as good sports nutrition is easy to digest and does not contain any superfluous additives. This means that you can focus fully on achieving your best performance yet.

Sports nutrition products for cycling
The ideal way to use sports nutrition differs for each cyclist. The aim before cycling is to fill your energy reserves, meaning that it is a good idea to consume a sports drink or energy gel before cycling. You can use sports nutrition the day before a cycling event, or before multi-day events to maximize your energy reserves. This is called carb loading.

Sports nutrition products while you are cycling
While you are cycling, sports nutrition products are perfect for replenishing your energy reserves. Our bodies can absorb up to 90 grams of carbohydrates per hour during exercise. To ensure optimal performance, you should aim to make the best possible use of this capacity.

Sports nutrition products after cycling
You can consume sports nutrition products immediately after cycling to replenish your energy reserves. This is especially important to keep in mind when you want to cycle at your best again within two days.

Proteins for cyclists

Proteins are also of the utmost importance to cyclists. When you go cycling, your legs are really put through their paces. The significant strain put on your legs because of the effort creates tiny tears in your muscles. You need to give your muscles the time to recover properly after a training session or competition. Proteins are crucial in this process, as they are the building blocks for your muscles. Consuming protein supplements is an easy way to promote muscle recovery after you have cycled. Additionally, proteins promote the training adaptations which ensure that you make the maximum use of your training sessions.
