Fitness and Bodybuilding are a form of induced stress, which upsets the organic homeostasis which will be first restored and then supercompensated (if the time and quality of rest is enough). We all know the importance of nutrition and exercise in increasing performance and improving physical beauty.
What many overlook (maybe not in words but in facts) is the recovery component. Recovery means not only rest days after training, but we enter a far deeper concept. Recovery time (adaptation to stress) is affected by the sum of the extra physical activity stress we are constantly bombarded with, the quality of sleep and daily bustle, as well as the quantity and quality of food introduced (not only in terms of macro-nutrients but also in terms of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants).
It is self-evident that, in a society where cortisol levels are supraphysiological, everyday rhythms and thoughts affect the quantity and quality of sleep, processed food lacks vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential amino acids, correct and appropriate supplementation can make a difference both in terms of sports recovery and health in general. I am not speaking of the usual protein powder (which I consider food) or creatine (to increase performance) but of a more "therapeutic" approach to the subject, where the specific individual need must meet a healthy and natural solution also in terms of prevention.
In the context of Bodybuilding and sports in general, I firmly believe that working on the ability to recover and stress lowering is a winning factor and the data we are collecting from our athletes confirms it. Without going into too much technical jargon, I want to propose some real practical solutions, some recipes, some "stacks" at supplementation level that can maximize the above points ... here we go!
