Nuts: the importance of eating well for people practicing sports

A proper diet is the best supplement

Vitamins, mineral salts, and other compounds must be thought of as an integrating part of the food they are contained in, and indeed a number of scientific studies prove this theory, stating that the best eating plan is made of food and not supplements.


Nuts are rich in mono- and polyunsaturated fats (“good” fats), minerals, and vitamins (B1, B2, niacin in particular) as well as antioxidants (vitamin E, copper, manganese, selenium). Indeed, thanks to its composition, it is an ideal snack to have before a work-out as well as the perfect way to “integrate” vitamins and minerals after your session.

A real concentrate of energy, nuts are healthy and also easy to carry with you, ready to consume at need and according to the intensity of your workout. For example, if you work out before dinner and need some energy but without weighing down digestion, you can have some nuts as a pre-workout snack in order to compensate before your meal.

Sport and free radicals

During an intense workout session, our bodies produce free radicals. These are unstable molecules that look for structural stability by reacting with other substances like lipids, proteins, and even our DNA. But accumulation of free radicals is extremely detrimental to our body; Consuming food rich in antioxidants thus helps to “clean” the body from this accumulation of substances.
