Away from home out of routine it’s difficult to keep you nutrition on track.
Greens, carbs and even achieving the right amount of protein intake can be tricky in certain countries, which can result in muscle breakdown and overall fitness decline
Here’s the supps I’ve found really help whilst traveling (along with a little bag of protein powder)
- BCAA: The foundations of protein synthesis and muscle building. The body can’t produce these and so they must be ingested from food/supps. It’s often difficult to find adequate sources of nutrition to supply your body with the required levels of BCAA for maintaining and increasing fitness whilst travelling. Having these little gems helps with that. Grab them here
- Glutamine: Taking these supps aids in reducing muscle breakdown and improves protein metabolism. Glutamine is the most common amino acid found in your muscles—over 61% of skeletal muscle is Glutamine thus it’s essential to meet your body’s demand for it. Grab them here
- Krill oil capsules
A personal preference for the huge benefits of the essential quality fatty nutrients they supply. Omega 3 and 6 for heart and joint health for all that trekking and a high concentration of antitoxins
- Vita Pharama organic vitamin and mineral capsules
A little boost in greens, you never know what you are going to find whilst out exploring. Sometimes lots of mouth watering fruits and vegetables, sometimes weeks of rice, beans and shreds of chicken. Either way I find these little organic gems at least give my body something nutrient dense to begin the day with.
- Sulphur Tablets
(A recent addition but not as essential) I personally found an improvement in my joints, energy and evened fat deposits. They can Improves digestive problems, repairs skin and treat skin problems and lower muscle pain and improve damage faster.
A fundamental principal for growth and adaption is achieved by the correct level or protein intake e.g 1g protein to 1kg body weight (everyone varies depending on lifestyle).
Take those few little gems above when travelling to help keep you on track when food and hitting your macro levels i.e protein isn’t achievable.
