The amount, composition and timing of food intake can have a profound impact on sport performance.
(IOC Consensus Conference)
Our sports nutritionists analyse, plan and personalise the nutritional strategies of the athletes in close collaboration with their coaches and closely correlated with the training regimen. The aim is to ensure that the diet is both suitable for sports, health and adapted to the preferences of the athletes in terms of taste.
This helps the athletes to:
- assure the optimal gains from their training program,
- enhance their recovery in-between sessions and competitions,
- achieve and maintain their optimal body weight,
- reduce the risk of injuries and illnesses,
- to have a high consistency in their competition performances.
Does collagen protein supplementation improve sports performance?
Background It has been suggested that dietary collagen provides an anabolic stimulus and that its key precursors, proline and glycine, are required to increase collagen synthesis. Similarly, there is evidence that whey protein supplementation, in particular the amino acid leucine, stimulates
Zoom on carbohydrates (CHO): different types and effects
There is consensus among sports nutritionists about the benefits of carbohydrates (CHO) in sport. But types of CHO and the associated terminology are complex and often confusing. Let’s take a closer look at some terms related to CHO, glycaemic index,

Altitude training: higher, harder, hungrier?
The picture shows track and field athlete Charel Grethen (FLA) preparing for his current altitude training camp in Kenya in the HPTRC's altitude chamber, with the aim of shortening the adaptation period on-site and enabling higher training intensities from the
