The importance of nutrition in maintaining health and improving sport performance is well known. Each category of sports requires a specific intake of food and supplements. However, many specific details concerning nutrition are not widely understood, limiting performance in sports and the after the exercise recovery process.
Nutritional timing, hydration, diet, and nutritional supplementation are key to increasing athletes´ performance. Nutritional strategies can also allow the recovery period to be shorter, which can lead to a higher training and competition load.
Additionally, athletes often suffer from gastrointestinal disturbances due to high pressure to win, long-distance travel, or the nutritional disorders they experience to meet their specific demands. In this context, it is important to focus not only on the athletes’ performance but also on their health and recovery.
This Special Issue highlights potential future nutritional strategies to improve sports performance, health, and recovery after exercise.
