Superfood Options Include
Organic Maca Root Powder – highly renowed for it’s “vigor”-enhancing qualities.
Organic Brown Rice Protein Powder – 80% by dry weight pure protein and due to it having undergone bio-fermentation, it is delivered in a form which requires less energy to be broken down and absorbed. Brown Rice Protein Powder is also easily soluble in any fluid and has a naturally sweet, creamy flavor, which is not chalky in texture.
Another great thing about brown rice protein is that for branched chain amino acids, its exceeds the amount of BCAAs found in whey for 2 out of the 3 (isoleucine and valine). For leucine, whey is higher but only by less than one-half of a percentage point.
Banana Powder – Banana’s are nature’s PowerBar,” which contain the ideal mix of the types of sugars athletes need, including glucose, fructose, and sucrose, similar to what’s inside most sports drinks.
Organic Chia Seeds – The seed’s outer husk is hydrophilic, meaning it draws in fluid. When mixed in water, chia seeds can absorb 10 times their weight in fluid, making them an excellent addition to an intra-workout mix, or a great way to pre-hydrate and prolong hydration during intense training. This is the logic that drives a growing number of pro athletes to mix chia seeds into their nutritional shakes.
Matcha Extract or Guarana Extact Powder – Both these foods provide a source of caffeine which provide the athlete with a “spark” of energy, by stimulating the central nervous system before exercise.
Organic Coconut Sugar – Pre-workout nutrition is largely about getting high quality sugars into the body to fuel metabolism. Coconut sugar aside from adding to taste, is unlike refined sugar in that it has all of it’s abundant micronutrients intact.
