Cycling Nutrition Products

Cycling is one activity like any other where fitness plays an important part, it therefore requires specific cycling nutrition products which will support the cyclist in terms of stamina, energy and other requirements during and after the activity. There are specific nutritional products which are recommended for this purpose and they may include the following;

 

Cycling Energy Bars

These nutritional products are highly recommended for cyclists. As the name suggests, energy bars are specifically energy dense foods which are meant to boost the amount of energy levels and the overall wellbeing of the cyclist. During cycling, a lot of energy is used/burnt hence the need to supply it with the same energy so as to balance things out. The nutritional energy balance equation states, “energy input must be equal to energy output." There are two categories of these energy bars which can either be high carbohydrate bars or low protein bars. This is to take care of the various needs of a cyclist in terms of energy and the muscles/stamina which is very important for cyclists. Energy bars are also very easy to carry around and therefore convenient.

 

Energy Drinks

These are essential for the cyclist. These drinks will help in the following ways: Energy supply; as pointed out earlier, most of the energy is lost when cycling which therefore means that there has to be a way of replenishing it. The solutions to this are energy drinks which are prepared in a way that they can provide the lost energy almost immediately. Secondly, energy drinks will help in the production of electrolytes which may have been lost in course of cycling and hence bring the right balance of electrolytes in the blood. Finally, these energy drinks are essential for a cyclist especially during the recovery period after cycling. This is because after exercise, there is a production of a stress hormone which is referred to as cortisol. Cortisol is known to destroy muscles after cycling or in any other physical training activity. To prevent this, cyclists take energy drinks which may contain essential ingredients such as whey proteins which are responsible in protecting the muscles from breakdown by cortisol. This will encourage muscle development and gain which is very important for any rider or athlete. The most important thing when it comes to these drinks is to make careful choices as some drinks may lack the required ingredients for recovery, energy and electrolytes such as whey proteins among others.

 

Energy Gels

This is another category of nutritiona in sports products which is essential for cyclists. As compared to the rest of the products discussed above, this category forms the very basic products required by riders. This is because energy gels will provide the energy that is required by the cyclists instantly as they are very easy to digest and also they are gentle to the stomach. Energy gels play a significant role when it comes to development of fitness and endurance whilst cycling or performing exercise. This then means that energy gels should be carried all the time.
