The idea is to make it as simple as possible for athletes at all levels to get the supplements they need
(Vocus) February 24, 2009
For serious athletes there are a myriad of nutritional supplements that boost performance levels and aid recovery. Getting the right balance can be confusing, and remembering to take the right combination at the right time is an extra burden to an already busy training schedule. For non-professionals trying to fit everything in around work commitments it's hard to find the time to train let alone select and devise an effective supplement programme.
CNP Professional is a sports nutrition company set up by athletes for athletes. Kerry Kayes, its founder, is a former champion body builder and currently a nutritional and training adviser to top sports people. Now CNP has launched a reformulated Pro Vital, an advanced multi-vitamin and mineral supplement with anti-oxidants, which is comprised of three tablets taken at the same time.
"The idea is to make it as simple as possible for athletes at all levels to get the supplements they need," explains Kerry Kayes. “The government recommends five fruit and veg per day and apart from fibre this does give us all our vitamins and minerals. But a hard training athlete needs more like five to eight per day which is a lot of fruit and vegetables to munch through! Pro Vital supplies all the essential micro-nutrients for an athlete in a convenient format.”
Pro Vital’s three tablets contain a carefully devised combination of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants that play a significant role in promoting optimum health and recovery during training and competition. Endurance athletes such as runners, cyclists and triathletes, as well as power athletes such as boxers and rugby players, will all benefit from adding Pro Vital into their dietary regime.
For convenience one of each of the three tablets are packaged into a single daily-dose sachet. The three can be taken together each morning with food – there is no need to stagger the dose. Previously the Pro Vital tablets had to be split into a morning and evening dose as some nutrients adversely affected the other's absorption rates. But the new formulation uses a time-release coating on the ZMA tablet so that all the three tablets can be taken in one go.
The contents of each sachet are split into three 'vital' components: anti-oxidants, the patented time-release ZMA (zinc monomethionine and magnesium aspartate) and a high strength vitamin and mineral combination.
Pro Vital can play a significant role in maintaining overall health and fitness. Zinc is critical for muscle growth and tissue repair after injury and magnesium is important for cardiovascular, metabolic and bone health. Together they enhance muscle mass and general well-being. The vitamins and minerals included in Pro Vital play a significant role in promoting optimum health and recovery while the anti-oxidant pro-cardio formula supports optimal liver function.
Pro Vital is available online at http://www.cnpprofessional.co.uk and the prices have been held at the old price of £27.39.
