Personalised Nutrition; from Olympic athletes to all consumers
For elite athletes it has always been of great importance to understand how nutrition can support their sport performance. Their nutrition can help them recover faster, develop more muscles, peak at the right time and deliver the required quantity of energy at the right time. But not all athletes are the same or need the same. Personalised nutrition was introduced to assist in the adequate analysis of food intake, timing of food intake and monitoring of biomarker of individual athletes. For instance for the athletes that have to peak at the upcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Not just for elite athletes
So a lot of expertise is already gathered in the sport sector. We cannot all effort a personal nutrition coach. But we can share knowledge and help each other to make personalised nutrition available to more people.
