Professional athletes try to get the most out of their body every day. For that reason; training, rest and nutrition have to be balanced as much as possible. The diet provides nutrients and energy to perform. The diet also provides necessary vitamins and minerals. One of these minerals is zinc. The special feature of this nutrient is that it is involved in many different processes. Zinc is important for everyone, whether you train a lot or not. Some of the properties of zinc receive much attention in all sports. Zinc plays a role in building and breaking down carbohydrates, fats, proteins and nucleic acids. It is an antioxidant that contributes to the process of cell renewal.
Strength athletes are often interested in zinc, because it helps the body to build protein and contributes to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood. Endurance athletes are interested in zinc, because it supports the body’s defenses and contributes to the normal carbohydrate and acid-base metabolism. Competitive, endurance, strength and brain athletes can benefit from the better the concentration that zinc brings.
It is necessary to travel to all the corners of the world for tournaments, competitions and training camps. That requires a lot of a professional athlete. Zinc Gold is dosed according to the guidelines of the NOC*NSF Team Nutrition and Olympic Panel.
Virtuoos’ Zinc Gold is tailored to the needs of (professional) athletes to support the immune system. Zinc Gold is an excellent way to supplement zinc in the diet, which makes sure the athlete is better prepared in the Netherlands and abroad.
Zinc 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.
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.
