Swimmer Nutrition

Sports nutrition is important to athletes as it aids in improving performance and recovery with the correct supplements. Swimming is a high-energy sport which makes use of both the aerobic and anaerobic energy systems which use stored glycogen and carbohydrates as energy sources, respectively.


Swimmers, therefore, require specific carbohydrate, protein, vitamins, minerals and fat to optimize their performance.
