Talent and a well thought out training program determine the sport performance to a large extent. The role of nutrition in sports performance should not be underestimated, however. Professional sports require very much from the body. After the basic diet of an athlete is in order one can start considering possible additional forms of sports nutrition or supplementation. It is important that supplements are tailored to the diet and the special needs of the athlete.
Sport Max Gold is designed for use during professional sports and other great physical exertions. Several ingredients in this formula have been added with the body of a professional athlete in mind. This makes Sport Max Gold a suitable and high quality supplement for fanatic recreationists as well.
Antioxidants and sports
The oxidative stress increases during heavy physical exertion, which results in an increased production of free radicals in the body. Antioxidants can ‘capture’ free radicals. That is how antioxidants help to protect healthy cells and tissues in the body against free radicals. It is important to eat varied and to eat sufficient fruit and vegetables, which contain many antioxidants. Sport Max Gold can be used to complement the antioxidants from food.
An important principle of Sport Max Gold is that it has to protect the body against free radicals, which is achieved by adding the antioxidants vitamin C, OPCs from pine bark extract and ViNitrox as a source of polyphenols from grapes. These antioxidants contribute to scavenging free radicals in cells during a period of intensive training.
Energy production is running at full speed when you are training intensively. Sport Max Gold contains the vitamins B1, B6 and C and the minerals magnesium, manganese and iron, which promote energy metabolism. These micronutrients help to activate the natural energy in the body.
Chromium is added to our formula as well. Chromium supports the conversion of proteins, fats and carbohydrates into energy and also helps to keep the blood sugar levels normal.
The other ingredients in Sport Max Gold are valuable for athletes as well. Magnesium plays a role in keeping the muscles supple. The mineral iron contributes to an efficient oxygen transport in the body, which is beneficial for endurance athletes in particular.
It is known that vitamin C supports the immune system. We added vitamin D to Sport Max Gold to support the natural immune system of the body even more.
ViNitrox is a patented ingredient. ViNitrox consists of 84% polyphenol from grapes. These polyphenols have characteristics of antioxidants and help to protect against free radicals.
Sport Max Gold is endowed with the NZVT logo. NZVT is an abbreviation of the ‘Nederlands Zekerheidssysteem Voedingssupplementen Topsport’ (Anti-Doping Authority for the Netherlands.) This certification guarantees the athlete that the dietary supplement is free of doping.
Consume 1 – 6 capsules with a large quantity of water. To ensure that the active ingredients can be fully effective when the workout starts it is of importance to consume Sport Max Gold 20 minutes before the workout.
Since December 2012 we are only allowed to publish product data sheets and product information that contain approved health claims by a European scientific organization – as a result of the European regulations on nutrient claims. This limits Virtuoos’ ability to provide information, as many health effects of diets and dietary supplements are (still) not recognized by this organization as sufficiently scientifically substantiated.
