Post-Exercise Recovery Nutrition
In order to understand the right nutrition you would need to get some idea behind the damage endurance exercises can cause as a result of generating Free Radicals
What is Free Radicals?
Free radicals are atoms or group of atoms formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules within the body. It is capable of creating a chain reaction which can damage cellular components such as DNA or the cell membrane. This is carried out by stealing the energy within the electron of the healthy cell by the free radicals. This process results in oxidative stress to the molecules resulting in its damage
Some of the Key factors causing Free Radicals are:
- Unhealthy food
- Excessive Exercise
Scientists have found that antioxidants are capable of donating an electron to the free radical and there by put an end to the chain reaction that it may cause.
Astaxantin a carotenoid is said to be at least a thousand times more powerful than an antioxidant. It is capable of :
- Absorbing 19 different free radicals at once whereas other antioxidants can only handle one
- Penetrating the cell membrane, protecting and stimulating mitochondria and protecting the nuclear and the DNA of the cell from both inside and outside
- Absorbing free radicals for 2-3x longer time period than other antioxidants
- Crossing blood-retinal and blood-brain barriers
- Remaining an antioxidant whereas others convert to Pro-oxidant and become harmful
As it is clear from the above that strenuous exercises creates free radicals that are harmful for the body and an ideal recovery program would be to utilize an Astaxantin based Endurance recovery program.

The Benefits of Good Sleep
As most of us have felt a lot better after a good night sleep, it is the same for athletes who increase their duration of sleep which leads to increased performance and improves mental well-being.
It is ideal for Adult athletes to get a proper sleep of at least 8 to 10 hours while young adults about 9-10 hours a day. Sleep quality is also essential in addition to the duration of sleep. This can be achieved by reducing the noise in the surrounding and sleeping in a cool dark room.
Take Recovery Seriously
Our modern life has a lots of demands on us, and ends us having one busy week after the other, either for the family or running errands that take an extreme toll on our recovery plans leading us to become tired and sore.
