Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer taking of synthetic vitamin C.
Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a fat soluble. Due to its antioxidant action, it is a protection of other vitamins (e.g. Vitamins A). Protects the body against free radicals, strengthens the walls of blood vessels and its capacity, causing their dilation and dissolution of blood clots. With the reduction of coagulation, it is used as an antiatherogenic medicine, it allows for the proper course of pregnancy. In cooperation with selenium it slows the ageing process of cells, strengthening connective tissue. In the food it is present in whole-grain bread, sprout and grains, vegetable oils (soybean, sunflower), soya beans and sunflower seeds, vegetable fat and hen egg yolks. Also it is used in sports medicine in the form of nutrients and supplements.
Vitamin E deficiency reduces building of red blood cells, results in changes in muscle and disorders of pregnancies.
Dosage: for children, 0.5 mg / 1 kg of weight; for adults 10-30 mg per day.
Chromium (chemical element from transition group of the chromium, chemically active) is actively involved in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. It comes in the easily assimilable organic form and inorganic. Along with insulin, as a component of the glucose tolerance factor (GTF), is used in insulin-dependent diabetes treatment, insulin involved in the metabolism of glucose in t proteins transport. Activator of enzymes involved in the metabolism of fats and cholesterol. Available in animal origin products (liver, veal, chicken, turkey meat, oysters) and plant-origin (bananas, broccoli, cereal, wheat germ, spinach). Supplements containing chromium are recommended for fat loss (also thermogenic), and improving the functioning of the body. The sports supplementation used chromium in the form of mono-preparations or in the form of vitamin-mineral minerals supplements.
Chromium deficiency results in impaired glucose, reducing the insulin sensitivity. It causes a decrease in immunity and endurance of the body. It may be a cause of coronary heart disease. Sometimes it causes neurological disorders.
Dosage: A varied diet prevents from the deficiency of chromium in the body.
Dosage: The recommended dose of 50-150 mg per day.
Allicin (dialysyl thiosulfate) is a chiral compound that contains a sulfur atom. It is produced in garlic (Allium sativum); it is responsible for its characteristic, sharp smell and antibiotic properties. The precursor to allicin is alliin, found in garlic. The process of allicin formation takes place with the participation of the alliinase enzyme, which is activated after damage to garlic cell walls (for example by crushing the cloves).
Allicin has strong antimicrobial properties. It destroys harmful Gram-positive and Gram-negative, aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, with efficacy comparable to that of broad-spectrum antibiotics. In addition, it combats viruses, fungi, and parasites. Allicin has a beneficial effect on the cardiovascular system. By limiting the production of thromboxane, it prevents excessive platelet aggregation and protects against clot formation. It may also lower cholesterol and reduce oxidation of the LDL fraction.
Preparations with allicin are a valued element of general-health prophylaxis. They are recommended to improve immunity, they can also be used as part of the prevention of cardiovascular and circulatory diseases.
Guar gum is obtained by grinding grains Cyamaposis tetragonolobus, a plant of the legume family cultivated in the Indian subcontinent and the United States. Guar gum in powdered form contains a mannose polysaccharide with galactose chains (approx. 80%), soluble in water and having the ability of concentrated, viscous solutions. It is used as a thickener in protein and protein-carbohydrate supplements, as it is non-caloric and has excellent organoleptic properties.
Red palm oil – derived from the fruit of the African oil palm and abundant in biologically active substances with health benefits. Firstly, it is an amazing source of essential unsaturated fatty acids of the omega 3 and omega 6 family. Their adequate intake is extremely important to the maintenance of cardiovascular health. It influences also beneficially the efficiency of this system. Some sources suggest that adequate dietary EFA intake prevents effectively cancer.
Apart from healthy fatty acids, red palm oil contains coenzyme Q10, a compound with an extremely important role for the human body. It is a strong antioxidant but also supports mitochondrial function, thereby boosting energy production in the body. It has therefore a beneficial impact on the functioning of the whole body.
Red palm oil contains also vitamin A and E, known for their positive effect on the condition of the skin, hair and nails and promoting healthy vision.
Policosanol – a mixture of substances from a group of aliphatic alcohols derived from plant waxes. Its sources include, among others, coconuts, rice bran, sugar cane and beeswax.
It is used in supplementation mainly due to its ability to optimise the lipid profile. Studies conducted in Cuba, in which therapeutic properties of this mixture were discovered, indicate that regular administration of policosanol may reduce cholesterol concentrations even by 20%. In addition, it is capable of improving the HDL:LDL ratio by increasing levels of “good” HDL cholesterol and lowering levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol. Such effects were observed in daily doses of 20 mg.
Even though the latest studies show less positive effects of taking policosanol, they highlight still its important feature, which is safety of use.
The sugars are the major digestible fuel in the body. We divide them into mono saccharides - glucose (dextrose), fructose (fruit sugar); di- (di-saccharides) - lactose, maltose, sucrose; complex sugars - starch. Most of them changes into glucose during the burning process. Sugars are sweet and increase the glycemic index (except fructose). The healthiest source of acquisition of simple sugars is a diet containing the so-called. products of the first milling and fresh fruit and vegetables in the raw form.
Consumed during a strength workout, they delay fatigue, affecting the proper hydration of the body and keeping parts of glycogen. After finished workout,they accelerate the regeneration of the body and complement energy expenditure. The excess sugars result in the accumulation of excess fat and increase of fatty tissue. A responsible use of sugars is recommended for diabetics, both for hyperglycaemia (glucose level above the normal), and hypoglycaemia (blood sugar levels below normal). Excess consumption of simple sugars can cause tooth decay.
Simple sugars are included in many dietary supplements, most commonly used in the carbohydrate and protein and carbohydrate supplements.
Dosage: for competitive sport athletes it is recommended to consume simple sugars only during workout and immediately after workout.
