Moderate physical activity combined with proper nutrition are considered protective factors against cardiovascular disorders, musculoskeletal injuries, dysregulation of immune system, cellular aging, neurodegenerative diseases and oxidative stress.
At the same time, nutrition can help to enhance athletic performance. An active lifestyle and exercise routine, along with proper diet, is the best way to stay healthy.
In fact, a good alimentation, rich in micronutrients and antioxidants, calibrated for each individual person, can provide the energy necessary for the competitive athlete to finish a competition and/or help an amateur to practice a sport or any occasional physical activity in a correct way.
This Special Issue aims to highlight the impact of nutrition on physical activity on the onset of disorders that can endanger the health of people who have a poor diet and practice physical activity. Identifying the mechanisms underlying this relationship and defining new intervention strategies could represent a new useful tool to ensure a suitable diet to support physical activity in conditions of maximum safety. New research papers, reviews and case reports addressing these topics are invited for this special issue.
