The Role of Active Nutrition Supplements in Patient Care

Competitive athletes aren’t the only ones who need adequate nutrition in order to fuel their pursuits – anyone who aims to achieve the recommended 150 minutes or more of moderate to intense physical activity per week may need additional nutrients to fuel their healthy lifestyle.1

There are a number of ways that dietary supplements for active nutrition can help:

  • Excessive sweating can lead to hydration loss, so refueling with electrolytes during and after exercise helps replenish the body’s fluid levels.*2
  • Strength training involves breaking down then repairing muscles to maintain and increase lean body mass. Protein and branched chain amino acids are the primary nutrients to support muscle health, and active individuals have higher protein intake needs than sedentary people.*3
  • Iron helps deliver oxygenated blood to muscles so they can perform at their best.*

From single-nutrient supplements to sports-specific products, Nestlé Health Science has a number of ways that patients can fuel their active lifestyles. All options are evidence-based and backed by research to give healthcare professionals the assurance to recommend these products with confidence.
