Sports and in particular endurance sports solicit the whole body and their practice must be accompanied by an appropriate diet. A food like Moringa if taken over time, for example as a three-month cure before a competition, makes it possible to supplement the food intake in three areas of construction, optimization and repair of the body.
Moringa leaves from ME, for example, contain 94 nutrients including:
- 13 vitamins (7 times the vitamin C of oranges, 4 times the vitamin A of carrots, and 3 times the vitamin E of spinach)
- 10 minerals (3 times the potassium of bananas and 4 times the calcium of yogurts)
- 30% vegetable protein (twice the protein of yogurts)
- The 8 essential amino acids that the body does not synthesize
- omega 3 and 6
This complement intervenes first in construction or reconstruction with
- vegetable proteins better assimilated and less demanding for the kidneys.
- Vitamins including vitamin C known for immunity also contributes to the formation of collagen, therefore to the construction of bones and cartilage.
- BCAA amino acids, known as branched amino acids, which play a key role in building muscle.
Optimization of organs in full swing,
- Vitamins in particular C and B1, B2, B6 act in support of a good cardiac function, contribute to energy metabolism, to the maintenance of red blood cells for the good oxygenation of the muscles with the iron metabolism.
- The fibers help the transformation of fats and the BCCAs still contribute to burn these fats and transform them into energy.
- Omega 3 and magnesium help in particular to manage stress and concentration.
For repair and recovery, Moringa:
- helps reduce inflammation, pain and aches, due to its concentration of isiocyanates and bio phenols, amino acids that reduce inflammation
- Reduces oxidative stress resulting from exercise with the production of free radicals, thanks to the abundance of anti oxidants, 46 in Moringa such as vitamin E, chlorogenic acid and quercitin,
- Finally minerals and hydration are the keys to recovery
