Sport Proteins, Whey Protein 90 (<0.5% lactose): 30 g in 100 ml of water or skimmed milk or Soy Proteins 219: 30 g in 200 ml of water or skimmed milk. Vitamins & Minerals: 1 tablet per day.
Before training. Carbo+, New Energy+ and Marza Energy+: carbohydrate based energy bar (maltodextrin and fructose), easily digestible. Designed to nourish the athlete also right before the race. or Stargel+ or Honey: carbohydrate gel (short and medium release) designed to provide energy, in an interval ranging from a few minutes to two hours after ingestion. HMB and Beta-Alanine act to protect the muscle "machine" while caffeine acts by mimicking the fatigue and muscle pain.

During training / Race
Stargel+ to provide an energy boost in the short and medium term during exertion. Liquid Carbo+ 30 ml or Miele to provide an immediate energy boost during exertion. Sali+ Performance for the necessary integration of maltodextrin (the energy needed to tackle even prolonged efforts), vitamins and minerals (for salt and water replenishment) and amino acids (for a better functioning of the muscle "machine").

After Training / Race
RM1 New Formula BCAA 8:1:1 is a blend that, through the action of its nutrients, acts as a "tonic" after races and prolonged training sessions. The sucrose and glucose, high glycemic index sugars, generate an insulin response, which promotes the absorption of nutrients. Glutamine and branched -chain amino acids are essential for the repair of the muscle damaged by physical effort. Vitamins and minerals provide the salt and water replenishment and counteract the free radicals formed during the performance. Creatine acts, however, on the production of energy in muscles by stimulating the necessary recovery processes. Or, for extended efforts, Sport Proteins or Whey Protein powder (for those who are lactose intolerant), necessary to counteract the muscle protein breakdown caused by exercise, especially when it is very long and intense. 1 capsule of Antiradical Mix against the effect of free radicals that have been produced during exercise.
Especially in prolonged training sessions, some runners more than others, are exposed to the risk of cramps. The onset of cramps is linked, besides genetics (some people are more predisposed than others), to the quantity of water or minerals that a muscle in action can lose. Fluidmag is a magnesium supplement in liquid form. A supplementation of liquid magnesium, so easily assimilable, allows you to limit the onset of muscle cramps. Recommended dosage: 1 vial 30 minutes before the race. Or Magnesio + in tablets (300 mg of magnesium per tablet). One tablet a day before the race or training, could remove the risk of cramping. Glycerol is a supplement of vegetable glycerol. 1 g of glycerol in a liter and a half of water 30 minutes before training / race draws water into the muscles thus reducing the risk of cramping.
Against lactic acid
While running a large amount of hydrogen ions (lactic acid) which are only partly metabolized by our body, are released in muscles. As the effort increases the antacid buffers produced by the body (e.g. carnosine) can no longer limit the lactic acid produced and the concentration of the latter rises leading to fatigue or, even, to muscle paralysis. Beta-Alanine+ is a Beta-Alanine supplement that along with L-histidine, makes up carnosine (an effective buffer for lactic acid). The assumption of Beta-Alanine is the only way to increase carnosine levels in muscles and counter, then, the formation of lactic acid. Recommended dosage: 1 tablet a day on rest days, 2 on training days before the race.
In support of the immune system
The practice of physical activity, beyond a certain threshold, increases sensitivity to viral and bacterial infections. L-glutammina is an amino acid "conditionally" essential, indispensable to anyone who does sport. It is the most abundant amino acid inside the muscles, the presence of which, as proved by several studies, decreases during exercise and in the early hours of recovery exposing the athlete to an increased risk of infection. This is due to the fact that glutamine is used as an energy source by the immune system. Recommended dosage: 1 tablet before and after exercise.
For the joints
Joints are exposed to a continuous stress: the lack of a proper warm up, extensive workouts and decreased recovery time contribute to their damage (loss of chondrocytes from cartilage). Joint Formula is a product based on D-glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate which, with the addition of other nutrients and anti-inflammatory ingredients, allows to supply the joints with the necessary nutrition to prevent their deterioration. Recommended dosage: 5 tablets per day.
