As a Masters Swimmer we understand that you are part of unique group of athletes with important nutritional needs that deserves your attention and investment.
With life experience comes greater wisdom, however there is also the inevitable loss of muscle mass, strength and function known as sarcopenia as we age, as well as reductions in bone strength associated with hormonal changes.
Exercise and a nutritious training diet complement one another like jigsaw pieces. They will support each other if pieced correctly and complete the picture of your health and performance in the water! Masters swimmers have unique nutritional requirements. Key nutrients including protein, creatine, iron, B12, calcium and Vitamin D, can all play a valuable role in supporting your health and performance, without forgetting great quality carbohydrate foods to fuel your physical and immune systems.
