Nutrition improves health, sport and aging

Nutrition, physical exercise, rest (sleep, respect the rest periods of training,…) and mind (be calm, relax, meditate,…) are the four pillars of health, sport performance and aging deceleration. Nutrition has a lot of applications, which depend on a lot of factors and are:

a) Improvement of functioning (together with training): If each nutrient is taken at the appropriate time and quantity, the body functions correctly.

b) Improvement of body composition (together with training): Strengthening of bones, ligaments and tendons, muscle gain, fat loss, etc.

c) Increase of physical abilities (together with training): Nutrition improves sport performance and subsequent recovery, so it increases strength, endurance, flexibility, speed, etc.

d) Prevention and treatment of diseases (together with medicine, physiotherapy or training): Nutrition is related to all diseases; it can principally prevent them, it can treat some and can help heal most.

e) Prevention and treatment of injuries (together with medicine, physiotherapy or training): Nutrition is related to all injuries; it can principally prevent them and can help heal them.

f) Delay of the onset of aging and deceleration of its process (together with training): Antioxidant nutrients (which are in foods of plant origin) neutralize free radicals (which accelerate aging and increase the risk of diseases).
