Basic health: the basis for good sportperformances
Being healthy is an absolute basic requirement to exercise.

- Thorough basic health to perform
- Sport Hygiene to deliver topperformances.
This starts with being healthy and having energy to perform until living for your sport. Within the range Svensson are several products which can be used in these different stages. Svensson Health both for men and women, 25 or 65 years, recreational or elite athlete ...

Get plenty of vitamins and minerals
Every day we anyway advise any athlete to keep his vitamin and mineral stable. A deficiency of vitamins or minerals can adversely affect your performance and your overall health. A regular and varied diet contains enough vitamins and minerals. Use fruit and vegetables: at least 200 to 250 grams of vegetables and two pieces of fruit a day. Vitamins and minerals continue to maintain better by steaming or stir-frying.
A healthy diet with a variety of micro- and macronutrients is for both the athlete and the recreational athlete important. Still need a supplement? Opt for a normal dose multivitamin.
Main sport vitamins and minerals:
- Vitamin D is important for the muscles and can minimize the risk of bone fractures. Our body makes vitamin D from sunlight on, so can sometimes prevent shortages in the winter.
- Magnesium: magnesium deficiency with athletes is often the cause for cramps in the muscles. Magnesium ensures the energy metabolism in the body, the transmission of nerve impulses and the proper functioning of muscles.
- Vitamin C or the 'resistance Vitamin': intense exercise can cause weakening of the resistance. Several studies indicate that vitamin C prevents infections. Vitamin C also reduces muscle pain and muscle damage
- B vitamins are necessary for good energy management. Research shows that a deficiency of B vitamins (by unbalanced diet) has an effect on physical capacity. Energy Xtr contains B vitamins supplemented with adaptogenic plants. (Turnera and Siberian ginseng)
