IFT18 session covers three ways to better “Get Your Head in the Game” *

Sports nutrition has undergone a renaissance in the past decade. Once defined by weight lifters and athletes, the popularity of staying fit is growing with “weekend warriors” everyday exercisers.

Accompanying this explosion is greater interest in the educational aspect of foods, beverages, and nutraceutical products geared toward sports nutrition. Two medical experts will outline science around ingredients used in nutritional products at IFT18, July 15 to 18 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Danielle Citrolo, PharmD, and Phil Harvey, PhD, RD, CNS, FISSN will present “Get Your Head in the Game: The Science Behind Ingredients for Sports Nutrition” on Tuesday, July 17, from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. CDT in room S405AB. Their session will focus on three different areas of sports nutrition:
1.    New research behind nitric oxide production
2.    Dairy proteins for sports nutrition
3.    Brain health ingredients for sports nutrition
“More and more millennial and Generation X types are reaching for the shelves and searching the Internet for products with the best, well-researched ingredients to not only keep them active and fit but support their pre- and post-workout needs,” Dr. Citrolo said. “Understanding the ingredients and their effects is crucial to maximizing workouts and supply the body with nutrients it needs to perform at its best.”
